4 months in and a crazy breakout of tiny itchy bumps!?!

Recommended Posts


I was prescribed Accutane, 50mg a day for 5 months (which I have mostly been taking as a single dosage.) I've been very good about taking all the typical, standard precautions, aside from blood tests. I've been taking it for 4 months without problems. But, about ten days ago I started breaking out in tiny, itchy bumps, all over my cheeks and neck (and anywhere where the skin is very thin) and it's getting worse. I think it could be because there are alot of irritants in the air nowadays, as we have yellow dust from China, and it happened very suddenly, but I dunno, it could be something else, but what?

I have been using a mild cortizone cream to help, and have cut my dosage to 40mg a day (20mg in the morning, 20mg at night.)

So what do you think?

The local dermatologist does not speak English, as I discovered when going to see about a mole removal)

should I worry? Should I stop taking it, or should I stick it out?
