When does the initial breakout happen?

Recommended Posts

I've been on claravis 40 mg for 13 days, and i had a breakout on day 5 but now i'm just getting the odd tiny zit here and there...a huge improvement from how i was pre-tane. Am I good to go?

Will i get an initial breakout? Or have I skipped it? I'm leaving for vacation tomorrow and I really don't want to start breaking out in the next few days.

I am only on day 2. but everyone i've talked to said its about 2-3 weeks in. and lasts 1-2ish weeks. i think it is different for everyone

Some get one, some don't. An initial breakout can occur anytime from a few weeks to month 1 to month 3.

My son is on 20mg and he had an obvious "intial break out" on Day 10...he went to school clear and came home with at least 7 white heads and few bright red all in the area where he was normally breaking out...it calmed down quickly only to happen again on Day 18...again those cleared very quickly..luckily non have been cystic so they are clearing quickly.

It seems everyone is so different so maybe you wont have a bad break out! Good luck! Drink tons of water and don't forget something for your lips all the time!
