Poll: When Did Your Initial Breakout Occur?

Recommended Posts

Posted

I haven't seen this covered in one place before and thought it would be helpful for us just starting out to know what others have gone through. So, how far into treatment did you get your initial breakout? And, how long did it last?

Got it pretty much instantaneously. Lasted 2 weeks. On my medication advice slip it keeps saying how initial acne flare-ups are 'very rare'. Not from what I hear over this site they're not!

I'm having somewhat of a breakout now, around about two weeks in to my course. It's calming down quite considerably though.

Thats odd, I can't see the poll to vote. Just me?

Anyway, if I could vote I would say n/a, as I never got one.

I got the IB 3 days into my treatment, and it lasted about 3 weeks.

I never got one either. I was prescribed a month of antibiotics before my course to keep the IB at bay, so that must be the reason. That or I'm just lucky eusa_think.gif

I only started my course a week ago (20mg/day) and literally within a couple of days large angry cysts erupted around my cheeks and jawline, including a 2cm triple cyst on my chin (probably the biggest i've ever had). I'm just praying that it won't last too long!

I had an initial breakout probably around the end of my first month. I got some ginormous whiteheads (painful too) but they went away pretty quickly! Since then, I've barely had any, and the ones that I have had were just very tiny, under the skin and barely noticeable.

hey guys,

I got my initial breakout on the 2nd-3rd day of treatment and now I'm on day 9 and I went from 25-30 pimples to about 10-15 and their all flat red marks. Looking ALOT better, but the breakout only lasted about 3-4 days because it looked bad until a few days ago. I'm also on 70mg/a day, do you guys think I'll break out again? Thanks!

I got mine around day 4 or 5, and it lasted about a month. I think I'm on day 55 and I still occasionally get a zit here and there, but for the most part it's clearing up pretty well.

Pretty much straight away, but I've only been on the drug for 11 days and I'm still on my initial breakout at the moment.

Never broke out MORE, it was just weirder...My acne was a different type and in different places. They came quicker and healed quicker too. That started a couple days in and continued for around 3 weeks or so. Began to clear around the end of the first week of month 2. My acne was never as bad as it was the month before I started. But then the PIH (dreaded red spots) became more noticeable during month 2. Three months in now and I could not be happier :)
