Small Bumps Appearing Under Eyes during Accutane

Recommended Posts


I've been on Claravis for about 7 weeks now, and in the past week I've noticed small white bumps appearing under my eye and also on my eyelid. I did some searching and the closest thing I could find is milia, but it doesn't really look like it. I'm talking the bumps are really really tiny, and only noticeable if I get up close in the mirror. However, they don't seem to be going away, and I seem to see a new bump or two every few days.

Does anyone else have this side affect with accutane? Any success in getting rid of these bumps?

I guess no one knows what these are! I'm seeing my derm on Wednesday, I'll update if we figure out what it is.

For anyone that is intersted, my dermatologist confirmed it was milia. She said that it tends to get pushed to the surface while on accutane. She also said she usually sees it on the face, but in my case it's on my chest and neck.
