Accutane for severe back acne, no results with 1st course

Recommended Posts

I finished a 6 month course of Accutane about a year ago (40-80mg) and it did well clearing my face of acne. I still get an occasional pimple on my face here and there but that's not really the problem.

I have severe back acne, and Accutane didn't clear that up at all for me. The acne on my back are nodule type, they don't come up to a head at all, they are just round and big and clustered on my right and left upper shoulders. Even though they don't come up to a head I assume they are filled with puss.

I am asking if I should take another course of Accutane for my back acne. I am very reluctant to take Accutane again because of severe facial flushing. This is something I picked up from my first course of Accutane. At times my cheek areas become extremely red and hot and I never had this happen before Accutane.

Would getting them shot with cortisone be a better idea?

Sorry, can someone move this to the Accutane forums.

Don't know why I posted it here.
