I ended acutane about a month ago. I had about two solid weeks of a clear face although it was still a little red and then after that I have had at least three very bad deep cysts. Any advice on how to avoid these and if I decide to go back on acutane how can I be sure the same thing won't happen again in 5 months. So freaking frustrating, not only are they ugly, they are very painful.

Thanks! :D

This shouldnt have happened... Remission should have been much longer than two weeks. Either your dosage was too low and really you needed to take the drug for longer. Or your acne is primarily hormonal. But whats really weird is that it didnt start coming back as blackheads but immediately came out with cystic acne, which is a severe form. A medical phenomenom - id return to the derm asap.
