Initial break out period Accutane

Recommended Posts

I’m thinking about getting on Accutane, wether my Dr. prescribes it to me or not I I can get it it. Anyway I’m concerned about the initial break out period. Do you have to have one. Sometimes I could go months without acne and then a huge cyst pops up or a couple of white heads. The cysts are more of a concer because they leave scars. This has been going on the last 3 years and even though I don’t always have acne I know eventually a cyst will pop up. I have tried all of the usual medications and nothing really works long term. My question to fellow board members is. I’m usually clear for weeks at a time If get on accutane will I still have an initial break out. ??? I need the type of long-term resolution that accutane may provide but because of my job I don’t know If I’m ready f or a face full of acne. I usually only have 1 or 2 cysts. Thanks..
