Accutane - Acne Immediately Returned

Recommended Posts

A month or so ago I finished a 6 Month course of accutane (my 2nd course) which cleared my acne amazingly. I was totally clear. On finishing the course a week later I noticed I was getting smaller spots again, so my doctor prescribed me another month. I started this extra month and I cleared up again. After finishing this month extra... I stopped and almost straight away started to break out again! It's so frustrating. now almost a month later I am suffering more again. I took a big dose plus an extra month so don't think the dose could have been to low? What could be causing it to return immediately?!! My derm is confused.. And so am I! Any help/experience would be welcomed

Hmm does your derm prescribe topicals to use after accutane? Maybe it's something as simple as a moisturizer you're using or your cleanser?
