Post accutane breakouts??

Recommended Posts

Is it normal for some people to break out a little after stopping accutane? I have some small uninflamed red spots around my chin and nose some of them turn to tiny whiteheads. They are also kind of itchy? Has anyone else experienced this?

My acne returned after stopping accutane.  But my doctor said its normal to have a final purging stage.  Unfortunately that stage is lasting months for me.  It probably won't for you.  Just drink lots of water.

I had a big itchy nodule right after stopping accutane. I started a reduced version of the regimen right away and haven't had any more at all. It's been a month and a half.
