  1. My acne looks similar to the ones in your pics.I was wondering after how long did they start clearing.Im in the situation u were last year.let me know how accutane worked.thanks

  2. Thanx for your info!!! Yeah I saw lots of ppl post-tane they use small amount of RetinA just to keep the healthiness of their pores. I was worried about this cream coz I tried it for about 5 months but it did nothing beneficial to my acne and brought me a terrible IB. My acne has gone crazy after I started using it and it's partially the reason why I'm on accutane right now. You are sooooo lucky for not breaking out for as long as 4 years. I guess you've already outgrown your acne period and w

  5. I can definitely see your cysts shrinking in size/redness. And I bet this looks a lot better in real person. Keep up the positivity!!! You'll be clear in no time!!! Btw, I like your tattoo:) I was actually thinking about getting my first tattoo over the summer. But one day I saw this post in this website asking for the possibility of getting a tattoo while on accutane. Someone replies like 'your skin will take a much longer time to heal and this will eventually mess up your tattoo permanently.
  6. I'm about to finish my accutane course in 3 months but I'm already worried about what's gonna come after. What else should I do if my acne eventually hit back knock wood again? 2nd course of Accutane??? I noticed quite many ppl they start another course of Accutane after being clear for a long period of time. I think I'll be happy to accept a 2nd course since so many ppl are doing this. But I'm not sure about a 3rd course since the drug is still liver-damaging. Anyone can tell me how much is
  7. Day 55 It's now officially day 55 of my course. Seeing my derm tomorrow morning and hopefully my blood/urine don't go crazy. I'm currently on 60mg/day and my weight is 135lb, my derm told me she's gonna keep me at this dosage for the rest of the semester. I'm already fasting now to prepare for tomorrow's blood test in the morning. Remember my last derm appointment, after I've had my blood drawn, the derm said she'll call me if there is anything wrong with my tests. I received a call from her
  8. Yeah it's definitely getting better. But also I took this pic in my bathroom, and the lighting there wasn't nearly as good as my bedroom where I took the last two. This also makes my face looking better:)
  9. Day 53!!! 1/3 of course finished!!! I've been feeling pretty amazing these couple days. Seems like accutane finally started to show its magic power. I didn't get a single cyst/zit in 3 days!!! And my skin feels so smooth now that I can actually try imaging my perfect skin with my eyes closed:) I was working on this project for this Bio class. I had very irritating electrodes and electrogel being attached to my face almost all day in the lab. But thanx to accutane, my skin didn't experience any
  10. Lol man this guy in your class was really insensitive. Sometime when I was breaking out badly, and I saw someone staring at my face on the street(probably not at my acne, but it could be misleading), I stare back at them really hard with my eyes wide open. Just think 'go piss yourself off' when you get this kinda looking, this really takes the pressure off. Yeah the rashes are from Accutane and I got them as well around the same time of my treatment. By application of some Cetaphil moisturizer
  11. Thanx man for being supportive. How can you tell that my acne is mostly on the surface??? I thought mine was pretty bad and deeply penetrated into my skin layers. Anyways, seems like I haven't been breaking out for several days already and the drug has finally started to work. I'm not putting my hopes up though coz I know these bacteria and oil glands they wont go away this easy:) It's day 54 of my treatment. I think this number is among average of ppl start seeing obvious effects.
  12. No worries you'll be clear in no time. Usually acnes on the chin and jawlines are the easiest to clear because the bones to the interior of the acnes are in the mean time helping pushing them out. That's the reason why cheek acnes are persistent and hard to clear.
  13. Day 49 Today I feel great cuz I haven't been breaking out for the past two days!!! My left face where I usually break out the most is now smooth and clear. However, I can still feel several hard, pencil-eraser size spots underneath my skin. Can anyone tell me if these are gonna surface and become cysts eventually, or they will be 'absorbed' by the power of Accutane? Currently Accutane 60mg/day O-3 Fish Oil Vitamin E 400IU
  14. I totally feel you, and I guess this is the purpose of establishing this site: for us to moral support each other. I'm sorry you had to be on Accutane 3 times but I think since it's your 3rd time, you definitely have a better way to deal with it. I found it helpful to take some non-tetracycline anti-inflammatory drugs while on Accutane to help with the IBs. I hear prednisone is a pretty helpful one and probably you can ask your derm about it. Just be extremely careful when you are taking a
  15. Day 47 Can anyone honestly tell me how bad my acne is??? I look at them everyday therefore my view is no longer objective. I'm on this site a lot frankly. Reading the posts from other people with the same issues and experiences however comforts me at some level. Most of the time I wasn't even reading their posts, I just needed to feel that they were around me and being on this site brings them closer to me. It's been about 1.5 month into my Accutane treatment. Frankly, I don't see any impr
