Accutane and Body Acne - A few questions

Hi all,

I'm seriously considering going on Accutane due to lots of acne all over my upper body.

My face and neck, however, are relatively clear. Some redmarks here and there, but little active acne. A few random spots here and there, but nothing to worry about too much...

What I'm wondering is - If I take accutane, will my face start to break out? Will body acne really benefit from accutane? Nothing, I mean nothing, really works on my body acne. It's horrible.

Has anyone received accutane for body acne only (meaning, your face wasnt severe enough but your body was) -- how were the results for your face and body?

thanks in advance

I had bad body acne, I've been on accutane for almost a month and a half. I have almost actually nothing on my chest or back, only scarring which is actually quite considerably gone, i can actually take my shirt off now smile.gif. Now with the initial breakout ... i dunno i didnt get an initial but if i doubt its gonna make ur face breakout lots of u dont have much activity on the face or neck!
