Course Almost Done, Bacne ?

Recommended Posts


im 19 yo, almost finished my 4 month course, no pimples left on my face. sometime i have 1 or 2 but go away really FAST.

im 140 pounds and 40mg/day on 4 months.

but my bacne never cleared up during my entire course ? i dont have bad bacne, just a really weird back with like lot of small not colored bumps but i got those big red pimples each week, they come and go, usually have about 3 or 4 at a time.

my derm told me my back is way better but look same thing for me.

face and back are the only places i ever have acne.

sometime i get on like chest or upper arms but its usually just one and its pretty rare.

is it normal that i have never cleared up entirely on my back in my entire course ? just this week i got 2 new back pimples and there half a month left to my course.

Thanks !

Bacne takes the longest to cure according to my derm and also is a sign that you will struggle to completely out acne into remission even with accutane. I would suggest continuing your course until you go one whole month without any spots. Particularly if you are scarring.

thanks! i cant really continue my course, no other meetup with my derm he said to finish my 4 months and take summer lightly cause of the warm and go back to him after summer if acne came back.

any other opinion?

face is super clear, havent broke out in weeks, got 1 or 2 really small whiteheads but go away in 1 or 2 days.

should i ask for another month or 2 ?
