Accutane - Random Breakout

Recommended Posts

I have been on accutane 80m/g for 4 months now. My skin has been completley clear for just over a month, until monday and it is now wednesday. I slowly started breaking out again on monday and it has just gotten worse.

I'm wondering if anyone has been through this? And If this is normal to have a couple days of breaking out or if this is weird that i'm breaking out now.

I have not changed my diet/sleep regime/lotion/cleanser. This is just random. I'm getting acne in weird places too; like pimples on my jaw line and above my lips.

From the logs I have followed on here and even youtube, breakouts seem to affect some people until after their treatment has ran its full duration, then they become completely clear; some, however very rarely, still have breakouts after the first course.

I don't know why, that's just what I have observed after sifting through numerous logs.

Your best answer will come from your derm.

I've actually had this happen just today.

It started just on Friday, and it was just a few pimples. Now it's a few whiteheads. I don't know where it came from. Easter stress and driving countless hours on the road?

I'm a pretty relaxed guy, so I don't think it's stress.

Before the breakouts I was cleared so well... it was looking great. I am ticked about the scars that will hang around now, but as long as everything goes back to better in time, I'm fine. Just a few obstacles on the way.
