I've been off accutane for a couple of months now, and my skin is now feeling greasy again, i'm getting spots (mainly on my chin and nose) again, i've been using differin on my nose, but it dosen't seem to be helping, today i woke up and my nose was really greasy, even after using differin the night before.

My Derm told me that accutane dosen't stop the greasiness, just the development of spots, is that true? I thought the greasiness played quite a contributing factor to spots. I would really like to know what steps to take now.

I think if greasiness is your problem now, you should ask your dermatologist about putting you on spironolactone. I'm not sure if it works differently for men, but just ask him about it, because i've been on it for two months now and my skin just completely stopped producing oil.
