Who Else Is Breaking Out At Month 2?

Recommended Posts

i started october 12 im 17 asian taking 10mg a day had a huge breakout last year that caused me to stop school for a year its just this year that i decided to use accutane because i still have acne breakouts and have really oily skin and the hyperpigmentation is still there,,,

i smoke and drink i dont know if that really cause acne but i dont smoke and drink regularly i just do it once a week or socially,in month 1 its okay losing oily skin is a big plus for me i dont have to wake up in the morning looking for my tissue to wipe of oil,

i notice in the morning my face looks better and after i take a shower my acne gets redder as well as my face,i recently stopped taking a bath with warm water instead i just shower with cold

i have cortisone shots whenever i visit my derm but last month i skipped but i think ill have it next week,

this just saddens me but i guess its getting better cause my hyperpigmentation is fading but sad thing though i get breakouts again and if i mean breakouts i mean cyst i dont cry over stupid small whiteheads its just f*cking overacting i would rather have dozens of whiteheads than to have cyst

anyways i try to be positive everyday and hoping the last few months will get better

this isnt a log but feel free to comment

i have like 10 cyst right now :D

I broke out during my second month too. I think most people start to see real improvement in months 3 and 4, so don't lose hope!

I'm also Asian, so I can fully sympathize with your hyperpigmentation woes. I'm a girl but I refuse to wear makeup (both because it clogs my existing pores and because I don't like the idea of dealing with my insecurities by hiding them away), so I feel very self-conscious about my appearance most of the time.

Good on you for being positive, and good luck with the Accutane!

My log is here though it's a bit wordy, so I'll just recap here in case you don't feel like reading too much text.

I'm not even finished my second month, unfortunately - I'm actually taking a week-long Accutane hiatus right now because the higher dosage my derma put me on during my second month had some pretty serious side effects, but I go back on 40mg tomorrow. However, Accutane did clear up at least 40% of my acne by the end of my first month, though my second month was a lot slower - I think I only got about 10% better since the end of the first. I have a really rare form of acne called rosacea fulminans. Like my log title says, I'm 22 years old and female.

The hyperpigmentation is the worst, and I've got a couple of shallow scars as well. I definitely have to look into treatments once my course is over.

i have like 10 cyst right now biggrin.png

I started the day before you - October 11. I was at 20mg for ten days and then I got bumped up to 40mg, which has been my dose since...

I am currently breaking out for real! It looks like Accutane never really helped...

The thinning of my skin is quite visible though as I peel like crazy and heal slooooowly - and that's the worst part!

Besides from that my hyperpigmentation AND scars are more visible than ever...eusa_liar.gif

Oh, sometimes I just hate those little pills...

wow i have rosacea too i dont know if it is rosacea but my face gets all red i dont know if the topical treatment made my face like this,anyways i still use topical treatments as my derm suggested maybe because im only taking 10mg thats why shes allowing me still to take topicals,the azelaic acid is definitely helping fade the hyperpigmentation,

Yeah, I'm still breaking out big time :( In cysts AND pimples. Probably about the same amount of cysts as before Accutane - but with more pimples joining the party...huh.png

I am breaking out as well...

I'm on month 3...day 2 possibly??? (started on oct.4)

But don't worry best results are months3/4

I think I might have just had my last breakout, it seems like the tane wanted to destroy my face first off...I got an IB on my forehead, then by my ears/cheeks then it moved onto closer to my mouth (yay....) and to the front of my face and chin. I haven't really gotten any new zits except for 1 on my jawline in the past 2 days which is a huge improvment.

I now have hyperpigmentation and scarring. Although the scars are very shallow so i think once I get off tane my skin will plump up and fill out the scars.

Stay positive, its a long journey but worth it in the end <3

Hey, I really empathize with your struggle! I posted last week with the same frustration. Tomorrow will be day 60. Starting in week 2, I have been breaking out much worse than I did before I took accutane. I would guess that I have 2-3 times more spots than usual. It's also been strange because the spots have been across my neck and I have never had neck acne previously. Normally, my cheeks and jawline breakout but my neck is clear. Initially, I wrote it off to the dreaded IB but I'm getting nervous that it may continue indefinately. I think most people see the biggest change in month three, I hope that you will find that to be true as well! I know how bad it sucks and hope that you can stay positive through it all.

okay ill be in my 60th day on accutane on december 12 so youre just like 6 days ahead of me can you update me with your progress after month 3?and yes i see some videos that their face gets worse even before accutane but got cleared at the end hope it goes the same for us!!!
A second month breakout seems fairly common.

yes but im 60 days already on accutane do you consider it the end of month 2 or the start of month 3?to make it clearer what do you call 60 days on accutane month 2 or is it month 3?lol im kinda confused myself

I am breaking out as well...

hey welcome to the site!!

anyways ill answer all your questions,,the cortisone shots you can search for the details here in this site,they will inject something in the cyst that will disappear in a matter of 12 hours or 24 hours it isnt that much expensive i think pimple treatments are more expensive,well in my experience i dont know i dont really cared about the scars before i just wanted to be clear,,but the shots i get never left a scar but sometimes it leaves a red mark(hyperpigmentation) it depends on how swollen your cyst is,,,sometimes though if they gave you a shot it becomes unsuccessful like after the shot a week later the cyst will return but its rare though but i have experienced this,,,,, keep yourself updated here and i will too,currently i dont have cyst because of the shots but i have pimples,,

i hope month 3 would work for all of us breaking out at month 2

I am almost 2 months down and my face is CRAZY. looks like a have a red mask of pimples blending into each other.

The only improvement since the first week is my nose as its nice and smooth and soft. My forehead is feeling like its going to clear up before the rest but tane has made my acne so much worse than when i started. I hope the breakouts stop and give my face a chance to start drying out the pimples and healing

hey im so sorry but i feel the same way as you,do you visit your derm?if so i think cortison shots will help if you can bare with the pain i have red mark and i have 2 acne on my right side cheek i have like 3 cyst right now but the hyperpigmentation makes my face looks worse,,,,,i hope both of us will have success on the 5th month i think thats the lucky month for most of us,just keep up the faith and keep me updated
