Just passed three months post-tane

Recommended Posts

I would wait and see whether the acne comes back or not, and if so, to what degree. Even for people who remain clear afterwards, most have their oil return at least to some degree. Just keep an eye out, and if you start breaking out, see a derm about it. Hopefully you're done with acne, but if not, that it is mild and controllable with topicals. Good luck!

Is the oil as bad as it was pre-'tane? Like others have stated, some of your oil should come back, but I've heard it's usually not nearly as bad as it was before treatment.

If it bothers you a lot, I would make an appointment to see your Dr. Otherwise, I'd just be glad that I wasn't breaking out yet. Did your doctor give you a topical retinoid to use after you got off the 'tane?
