20MG Accutane Every Day, ADVICE?!

Recommended Posts

Hi,
I am a 20 year old male who has just been put on 20mg a day of Accutane. I weigh 61KG and am pretty active playing sport 4/5 times a week. Some history about myself, I have had acne on my face for about a year now, reaching its peak in June. I have tried Lymecycline, which cleared me up but when I finished it came back with a vengeance. I was on Doxycycline and Epiduo from June- Early October and have been on Accutane now for 6 days. My acne is mostly pustules, and I have loads of PIH and red marks mainly on my jawline/ cheeks
Anyone have any advice/tips for me?
My current regimen:-
- morning wake up wash face with cetaphil gentle skin cleanser
- moisturise with La Rosche-Posay Effaclar H, multi-compensating moisturiser
- Evening- wash face again with cetaphil
- moisturise with cetaphil moisturising lotion

I am still getting pustules every day, how should I get rid of these? My derm prescribed me Zineryt but I am a bit unsure of how to use this?
Also I am terrrified about an Initial Breakout. When will I start to see results?!

Current skin:-
None on back
- some on chest
- big spot under chin, big spot on my lip, couple of small pustules here and there and then the mass abundance of PIH

Any advice/tips I would love!
