Still breaking out on back?

Recommended Posts

I just started my fourth month of Accutane. Overall, I can't complain because I haven't really experienced any side effects other than dry skin & lips and the breakouts on my face have pretty much stopped. However, I'm still breaking out on my back and I'm a little confused as to why. I was told that usually on Accutane, body acne is the first thing that clears up. As I mentioned, I'm not breaking out on my face anymore so why is my back still in bad shape? I still have to take Accutane for another 2 - 3 months. Is there a chance it could still clear up in that time-frame since it hasn't already by now?

It's taken my back acne forever to clear up too...I still even have a few bumps there and I'm sooo close to being done with my course. I was under the impression that body acne is more stubborn than facial acne, which might explain it.
