Day 3 - Already Massive Break Out!!

Hi Everyone,

It's the 3rd morning of my accutane treatment and I have woken up to a huge load of spots on my face, some have come to a head, others are very painfull under the surface.

Does accutane usually cause a break out this quickly and how long until I can expect an improvement?! :doh:

Happened to me too. Hang on dude.

Read that it's for you on the long run. My second/third week on tane was good. Little or no cyst at all.

That happened to me too, by the 7th day they got very red and sore, by the 10th day , they are not as red and have reduced in size.

See my accutane log, it is in my sig. :)

Don't expect anything for a good while or you'll likely be disappointed. It took 3 months for my face and chest to stop breaking out, and I'm in the 4th month and hoping my back stops breaking out still.

how many mg are you taking?? My son just started today with 20mg and doctor said we shouldn't notice anything for a few weeks.

Good luck...I hear it really is a miracle cure I am sure you are just a few months until perfectly clear skin!

hey whats good !

mine was more the redness than the breakout but i hear you.

patience man , it would work if you work it, it worked for me and im sure it will work for you too!

for the redness you can always use eucerin redness relief line and avoid hot water on your face , wash cold water always morning and night no soap use soap free non fragance products and drink plenty of water. thats a natural detox!

good luck to you!

Thats wierd because I am on day 5 and noticed a couple pimples i get (bigger ones) at night becuase i would pick at them making them bigger. But when I woke up in the morning any cyst like pimple or any forming cyst (under the skin soreness) would disapear by morning. either im lucky or accutanes savin its anger for week 2 and im gonna breakout like a bomb went off on my face
