Roaccutane - advice/tips/help?

3 posts in this topic

Hi, I’m a 17 years old male student and I’m into my third week of Roaccutane now. My acne hasn’t ever been awful on my face, but my entire upper back is covered with spots/a few scars, my left shoulder has loads of spots on it, and in the months leading up to starting Roaccutane my chest also got some spots also, when it had never got any before. My face is typically very oily and I tend to pick spots rather a lot so that hasn’t helped. 

into my third week of roaccutane, my routine is to is: 
Use Cetaphil gentle skin cleanser, then go in shower and rinse it off and wash my hair. Then throughout the day at school moisturise my lips with Vaseline. I don’t moisturise my face, don’t feel like I need to particularly. then either when I get back from school or before I go to bed, I wash my face with a flannel and water (no soap) and then load up my lips with Vaseline for the night. 

I’m trying to leave all spots alone and let The Roaccutane do its thing, but sometimes heads of my spots are dry so they’ve come come  when I wash my face the flannel. Is thisok? 

Is there anything I’m doing that could be limiting my progress with Accutane?

Make sure you take Accutane after meals and keep the timing consistent every day. 

I’m taking them with/straight after my dinner after I get back home from school. Thanks for the message!
