1 week aka 7 days

woke up this morroring & my face was really oily & my pores look huge.

a couple of new red spots along my jaw line.the two cyst i had are healing up nicely.a lot of black/whiteheads on & around my nose & trying not to pick is it hardest thing

side affect: dry lips but nothing a little blistex cant handle & the inside of my nose is a little sore today but no big deal.had a headache but after i ate a little something it went away

i hate it when i look like this i just want to curl in a ball & hide i really hate this crap.

the redness does go away after a couple of weeks. That's like the first side effect that I got including dryness. For me it looked like my face was burned by the sun :redface: or something, but that didn't bother me, what did was the itchiness :evil: .

Best of luck! I'm a 47 year old male and starting having issues with my face in my early 20's. Tried everything and lived on antibiotics. About 3 / 4 years ago, went on Accutane. It worked GREAT but after a couple of months of being off of it, my face got worse. After three courses, my face was clear for about two years!!! A couple of months ago, I woke up to find cysts again, out of the blue. Antibiotics (bactrim) did nothing and that ALWAYS helped. Now I'm back on the Accutane...day 14. Thing is - the first three courses, my face cleared up immediately. This time, my face is worse than it ever has been...cysts like crazy. Not sure why I'm having this reaction since I never did before. It's very discouraging. My Derm said that the majority of people get clear and stay clear with just one course of treatment. Maybe you will be one of the lucky ones. I thought I finally had it licked. Maybe this time will work since the initial breakout period is so bad. Good luck to you!

You and I are in the same boat my friend. My face is going crazy right now. Hate this shit. And Im still a puddle of oil too.

I guess my face looks a little better in the morning too. But in reality, it looks like shit all the time anyway
