It is eerie how similar our acne is. I get most of my acne around the chin and mouth area as well and it is very dry/rashy too! Accutane helps all acne as it shuts down oil production so no oil, no acne. It'll work for you. It's hard to say what you ib will be like. Everything has to come up so it may be a worsening of your current acne. Try not to think about it as it is what it is.

Good Luck!

I found that keeping a log during my accutance course was very helpful. You may want to do the same.

Before accutane, what else have you tried for your acne?

finally a response =) thank you!

ugh i took that pic like 2 days ago and my face is so much worse than that now. it's out of control.

i still have 17 days til i start accutane, and the way i'm purging now, i'm hoping my IB will be small. i have a lotttt of clogged pores and every single one of them are turning into whiteheads. that made me happy to hear you think accutane will work for me =) i am a negative nancy and always expect the worst.

so you're on accutane? or were on accutane?

i've literally been on so many different creams and drugs over the years i don't remember all the names. i've been to 4 dermatologists. 15 yrs worth of this shit. every over the counter product you can imagine.

just to name a few...

amoxicillin, doxycycline, tetracycline, minocycline, clindamycin. all the stupid cin's. umm... differin, atralin, BP oviously. birth control, cefin.
