Breaking out in cysts!

Recommended Posts


I have been on accutane for 66 days now, the first month was 20mg, and 30mg thereafter...I am going to be upped at the end of this month :)

Last week, I noticed that my skin looked slightly clearer, but when I felt my cheeks, I had lots of tiny hard cysts. Is it normal to break out in cysts this far into the course?

I'm worried that I may end up having permanent scarring now :(

yep I have heard that people break out even at the end of their course (because the drug continues to work until it is completely eliminated from the body) but it's just that Ive only ever had 1 or 2 cysts at once, and I reckon I now have around 15-20 new ones.
