Chance of Relapse?

Recommended Posts

I finished my Accutane course 8 months ago, and only now my oilyness is SLOWLY creeping back, very slowly on my forehead. Im really really really really paranoid that it'll come back with a vengeance.

I was 16-17 during my accutane course, and haven't had any major pimples since the course. Whats the chance of it relapsing?:(

Well if it's the same as mine. Then yea, it will happen.

The overal chance though I'm not sure. I think it's rather low.

mine came back much milder and not nearly as bad as before.

also, i had acne on my face and mild on my back. the face acne came back, though not as bad, and the back acne never returned.

it came back after 3 years.

and i think it came back when i started to drink lots of soy milk, i have read numerous people's experiences with acne and soy because of the added hormones.

i just finished my 2nd course of accutane a week ago and hopefully by staying away from soy i will avoid the chance of another relapse!

good luck!
