cysts on accutane

Recommended Posts

how long does cysts on accutane typically last? and do they ever reoccur after swelling down and disappearing, coming back just as brutal as they were initially? or do they stay dead for good?

this is my first cyst EVER. fuck.

hehe I have a couple on me, in fact I have so many on my forehead I can't really tell they're there, then I stretch my face around and see a god damn cascade of them. Disturbing, and so unnoticable that it's embarassing.

The cyst itself will not last as long as usual. However, the scarring will last far longer than usual. DON"T PLAY WITH IT!! Leave it alone and do not attempt any popping or anything. Although you may be able to drain it, the scar will last that much longer. Depending on it, the red mark from it may last the entire course and beyond just because your skin is so much the weaker. Personally, the other month I popped a rather small whitehead above -nearly in - my eyebrow. That scar is still there - luckily hidden by the brow.

My cysts are taking just as long to heal as they ever did - forever. However i have only gotten a handful of them since starting this course, instead i've gotten some tiny little pimples and those heal quite quickly.

Would it be ok to put antibiotic ointment or cream on cysts during Accutane? Just doing research before asking for it, I want to be sure I could mitigate any possible scarring while on it.
