How long to wait until going back to derm?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'm sorry if this has been discussed before. I finished my course of roaccutane on the 11th of April. I was taking about 60mg for 6 months, and I only weigh 67kg so it was a fairly large dosage. My acne before was horrible, cysts all over my face and chest and back. It really destroyed my confidence and ability to socialize. I was clear after going on roaccutane, all that was left were my scars. However I've only been of it for 11 days and the acne is returning, tiny at first, but gradually getting worse. I'm concerned that it will return to the state it was before. I don't really want to go back onto roaccutane (this is a financial consideration also). Are small outbreaks normal after the treatment (if so, how long after roaccutane did you begin to get acne again?), or should I go see the derm again to stop it before it starts?

Did you find that treatments which did not work before were now effective?
