Advice for anyone struggling with Accutane breakouts/Initial breakout

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. So I started Accutane for my moderate but persistent acne (after trying everything else), and after more than two months, my skin could not be in worse condition. I was left with very severe with red marks and cysts all over my face. My own mother described it as the worst acne she had ever seen, I even almost had to have a large cyst surgically removed. Anyways, I ended up switching derms, and my new guy took me off Accutane, and put me on a sulfur-based antibiotic called bactrim. I had been on other antibiotics before, but nothing worked nearly as well this did. By some miracle, after 3 months of Bactrim and IPL laser therapy, my face cleared up with only a few red marks left behind. I strongly urge anyone who's having really bad breakouts with Accutane to consider talking to their derm about this, it saved both my skin and my mental health. I posted a couple pics below to show you my progress. Best of luck to you all!
