5 Months In And Still Getting Acne

Recommended Posts

Hi guys im 170 pounds male, i take 80mg of accutane a day. First 3 months were 40, 2 months on 80mg. At first i had deep cysts that left awful scars and my face was extremly oily ( ihad to wash 3 times a day) now my face is way less oilly but im still getting pimples and black heads. The thing is every winter my face gets better becuase its less humid and cool. Im afraid that accutane didnt do anything and when summer comes im goin to break out again, which i couldnt take again. Should i ask my derm to give me a more higher dose? I feel really awful everyday about this and my acne doesnt want to go away

Accutane is doing it's job. No need to increase dose, in fact I would lower it.

Kill the bacteria, slow down keratinization, prevent prolactin spike/don't masturbate, and inhibit 5ar type 1.

Check sig.
