Out of accutane - break out

Recommended Posts

hello, im Joao, from Brazil. I've taken Roacutan(accutane) for 6 or 7 months, and stopped in the end of january. In the end of the treatment, i noticed that i hardly had any zits, sometimes some big ones appeared on my back, but it was rare.

im almost 6 months out of accutane and I noticed that im having some break out after I stopped the medication. My doctor said its normal, because when you take accutane, your glandule shrink for ex 95%. but when u stop taking it, they grow up about 40% of the original size.

my zits are not big like before, but i hate it the same way!! im using Differin at night, for red marks. My skin is getting drier with it, but even thus, some zits come out!! is it normal after accutane??

please help me!

thank u very much

can't really give you any proper advice cos i'm only in month 3. but i have heard people say that when they stop taking it, acne comes back a little bit and then goes away. but each person is different so u'd be best off asking your doctor.
