With Pics! Accutane Advice Pleas Help!

Recommended Posts


I wanted to hear some advice from people that have taken accutane or that know very well how it works.

So, i am 15 years old, and i weigh around 63 kg. This winter i was prescribed 6 months of accutane but i only managed to do 4 because then it was summer. For the first two months i took 20 mg a day, for the last 2 30 mg a day. My skin stayed perfectly clear for a month then little tiny pimples started coming back and in the last two weeks every morning i'm waking up to new spots every day! Did anyone else notice this happening? Especially people that did not manage to finish the course. The only difference is that my spots this time are in a different area rather than before accutane, before i got them all over my cheeks and forhead, now on my nome and around the nose..Did this happen to anybody?

So, yesterday i went to my derm and he prescribed me other 4-5 months on 30 mg a day. He sayed that i should not worrie that my spots came back this time, because i had not yet reached enought of it in my sistem to work permamently. He sayed that after this second course i should be fine. I am just scared that it happens like the first time and that after three months they are back!! Any medical advice?

Now i will show you three photos

1) The first one is before accytane

2)The second one are the red marks that were left when i was clear in the summer

3) The third one is when they started coming back..
