Hi For the past year I have been dealing with bad outbreaks of acne and have tried many prescriptions such as lymecycline, epiduo, duac, and none of them have worked, so last month I got referred to see a dermatologist with the intention of going back on accutane for the second time. But last week I went on holiday and had a lot of exposure to the sun and my spots have pretty much cleared up. THere are still small outbreaks but nowhere near as bad as before. I am worried that the dermatologist will not put me on accutane. Will I be able to go on it even though spots are not bad at the minute, because I know for a fact in two months time I will start breaking out badly again? Thanks

Make sure to tell this to your dermatologist. You're not supposed to get sun exposure once you're on Accutane, so your skin will probably need to heal before he/she puts you on it, but I don't doubt that they'll put you on it if you have reoccurring acne - especially if you've been on Accutane before.

If it's cystic, I'm sure you'll have no problems, even if it's "clear" now.

Good luck!
