Accutane Completely Cleared Me Up, Finished Course 3 Months Ago Now Getting Whiteheads Again - Help?

Recommended Posts


Is it because of my crappy diet? I've started eating a lot of chip shop and drinking coke etc...

I don't have any experience with the joys of accutane however I'm sure that your diet isn't probably helping the matter.

Caffeine definitely breaks me out and I try to avoid it as much as I can by having decaffeinated tea + not drinking Pepsi Max (however much I miss it!)

You might want to try adjusting your diet (and heading to the Nutrition and Holistic Health section of this forum which is a great help if you want to clean up your diet) and see whether it makes a difference. There's no guarantee it will but it could certainly be a contributory factor to your whiteheads.

It could be a reaction to a new product or just the Accutane wasn't enough. I've heard that some people do break out after stopping Accutane, regardless of dietary factors. You might want to speak to your doctor/derm about this as well.

I would say that you should try eliminating potentially acne-triggering foods (dairy, gluten, soya, sugar, caffeine) If it helps, then great! If it doesn't, you haven't lost anything and you can go back to drinking Coke to your heart's delight grinwink.gif

(I would definitely recommend the Nutrition sub-forum here if you want to try eliminating trigger foods - there are some great threads on how to it right and identify your triggers :) )

The things that you listed can exacerbate the problem. It's not that hard to cut out junk food and soda...just do it so you can stay clear you won't be missing out on much at all.

It is very important to wipe out all the reasons of acne from the root to prevent re-occurance in any form. Go for a proper diet for complete detoxification and re balancing.
