hey, it might be a little early yet, but you could be starting the dreaded "initial breakout." (i think its too early though) i'm also on Amnesteem. (i have a log as well, if you want to check it out) first i was 20 mg, then 40 mg, now 80 mg. i started seeing results when i was bumped up to 40, so like in month 2. its not perfect, and i still have 3 more months to go! but i saw a definite improvement. i hope you see results like mine! keep us updated!

hey guys thank you so much for your replies!

firegurl--yea i think im starting off with really oily skin but it could be my sunscreen/moisterizer too

dancedevil--ive started to get cysts, in fact my doc injected a cyst on my appt on friday, however my skin is really moderate not too severe...altho it can look severe cuz of the tuns of hyperpigmented marks....

btw do those go away with accutane hyperpigmented marks?

hi im lving--yea i thinik it might be too early and im just reacting to every little thing :-P

thanks yall i mglad amnesteen is workin out for you!

hey thanks tenn girl...yo i had a quetion

my skin is really bumpy, like from old pimples and wat not its just bumpy...does accutane cure this bumpiness in addition to my active acne?

It depends on what the bumps are from. A lot of times they will be pimples that just haven't surfaced yet. In that case, yes, Accutane will bring them out. If they are NOT pimples waiting to come out, however, it is likely that it is scarring. You will have to talk to your derm about that and see if there is anything you can do.

But you are just barely into your course! Hang in there and see what accutane does for you, and AFTER the course worry about other stuff!

It can be. If you have keloid scarring though, it will be raised. It just depends. I have a feeling your bumps are just underground nasties that need to come out. Give it a little time (a month or so) and if they still haven't come out I would talk to your derm at your next visit and ask. It's hard to tell without seeing them in person! Do they normally show up right after you have a cyst? If so it will probably go away. If it is an underground zit it will definitely surface during accutane, but that is GOOD!

I would just ask your derm. There's no way to tell over the internet :lol::)
