Pustular acne and symptoms

Recommended Posts

So i am on my 6th day of accutane and i have a few questions. For one I have already been experiencing the dry lips and dry face. is that normal for it to happen that quickly? im on 40mg.

Also, I do not experience my cystic or red inflamed acne lesions. I typically only get pustular acne on my nose, upper lip and chin. My cheeks have never and are perfectly clear. I was wondering if accutane works faster for this type of acne since it seems like if the oil production was reduced/stopped shouldnt pustules also stop?

Finally, I think i am experiencing my initial breakout but its nothing worse than before, i cleared up the first few days on accutane and now its just going back to normal. Any advice or answers guys?

Thanks in advance

Yes

Possibly

My standard answer is that Accutane takes months to work, during which time your skin's condition may fluctuate markedly and regularly, especially with dose increases.

Only be slightly concerned if you still have significant acne 4 months after your first pill. Before then, pimples are not uncommon.

Good luck.

Thanks in advance
