5th day of accutane...lots of whiteheads...

Recommended Posts

Just started Accutane a week ago and have been getting ALOT of whiteheads lately. Is this normal? Just about every pimple gets filled with puss so I poke it and sqeeze em. Is that ok?

I don't think it's very good to squeeze them...I'm not sure why but I heard somewhere that it's not very good to pop your pimples while on Accutane. And 5 days is too short to see any results...it may be the beginning of the "initial breakout" but I'm not sure.
