Body acne on accutane

Recommended Posts

I have been on accutane, 30mg twice a day for about 2 1/2 months now. my face, chest, and back is almost completely clear but i keep breaking out on every single part of body! my legs, arms, hips... how this ever happened to anyone else before, and if it did did it completely go away? itll be summer soon and id really like to go to the pool/beach without being embarassed. helppp

For me, absolutely everything went away. I'm now 2 years post-accutane and some back acne have returned in the last 6 months maybe but it's very very mild. Other than that it's all 100% clear so I don't see why yours should be any different.. you just have to stick with it good luck.

ps. I forgot to tell you that 2 and a half months in is pretty much nothing. I wasn't 100% clear until at least 4-5 months post-accutane. Even after you stop it keeps getting better.
