Blackheads everywhere!

So I am in my second month of accutane. Besides having to moisterize a ton, it has been fairly mild with other side effects.

But.. the last few days, almost every pore on my face has tiny blackheads on them. :wall: It isn't easy to see but it is gross. What is up with this? Any advice?

Your skin is purging, it's perfectly normal. If you're like most people, the blackheads will rise to the surface on their own and will be expelled from the pores without any help from you. Don't mess with them, don't try to hurry the process by scrubbing at them or anything like that.
