Are whiteheads normal?

Recommended Posts

I never thought it would happen so quickly!

I'm two days into Isotretinoin treatment and my face is already covered with whiteheads.

Like all the red bumps I had on face have all turned into whiteheads, and on Father's Day. D:

Is it normal for this to be happening, is it a sign that the Isotretinoin is kicking in?

yes it is

dont worry

as you may have read in the begginign many people breakout

if you are on 2 days only it means its being pretty efective which is a good thing

good luck and dont give up

Javier,

Despite my username, DO NOT GET DISCOURAGED!!!!! This clearly demonstrates that your body is processing accutane quickly and EFFECTIVELY. This is a good thing :).

I'm sure you already know, but Accutane does several things at once.

Reduces sebum (Oil) by literally shrinking your oil glands.

Pushes up all the bacteria and acne beneath your skin QUICKLY

It does more than that, but those are the two main things.

Just so you know, I'm on day 10 of accutane and I'm still breaking out like crazy. I'm hoping it will subside soon, but I will tell you that this is my 3rd course. My two previous courses it cleared up every inch of acne that I had rather quickly. It's absolutely amazing what Accutane can do for acne.

So stay positive and keep your eyes on the prize. Acne free, it will happen.

Good luck.

Thank you for the support! I will most definitely keep my eyes on the prize, I can't wait to see the end result.

Oh and good luck on your treatment! Hope it keeps your skin clear this time around :)

It pushes up the acne from beneath your skin quickly? What does that mean? Lol .

Would this explain why I have loads of small lumps of acne on my chin area, I am on day 60 today :(
