  1. Do you mean redmarks or facial flushing? Redmarks isnt really a side effect of accutane, accutane can make them heal slower but it isnt the cause or anything. Some people like me are just prone to redmarks, even before taking accutane, alot of redmarks can last for 1yr +
  2. hey how bad is your skin this time around? Did you suggest accutane, or did the new derm? I'm around 6-month post, and i'm getting mild acne pretty frequently, was thinking about heading back to the derm, i thought they might want to try topicals or something though.
  3. it still is in your system generally for a month or so I think. It'll get better. You'll probably need a maintence program later maybe, unless you are one of the lucky ones. My derm did the same thing basically, just told me enjoy and said i didnt need to do anything. It's 6-7months post now, and i'm getting pretty frequent mild acne, I think i need to go back and get something.
  4. i took bactrim for 1month prior and 1st month of my accutane course. I stil did get an IB, but it wasnt that bad, since my skin was heading for the worse anyway, so could of just been a bad breakout lol.
  5. Hey if you are not working or earning alot, you can apply for a low income healthcare card. I think it's if you earn less then $450ish a week. With it a box of roaccutane is only like $7~. Goodluck on your course.
  6. Basically what Karam said, i already decided i wanted accutane before i went to my GP, and i knew GPs cant prescribe it. So I didnt even talk to my GP about acne, i just straight away ask for a referral to a derm, i dont think i even mentioned accutane to him.
  7. ^ Hamilton Skin Therapy Light Cream and Cetaphil moisturizing cream are good. Cetaphil is the stronger one so might be too greasy for the day.
  8. i'm not a fan of clinques systems, they never really did anything for me. I would go back to the derm, i heard topicals work better after accutane, so maybe try them first, if not then maybe accutane again. That's what i'll do if mine comes back. Also your originally dose was low for your bodyweight and time, you wouldnt of hit the cumulative dose of 120-150mg which puts you at the best chance of permanent remission.
  9. Well i did for a while, took accutane, but now im like 3months post, and i think it might be coming back. Like right now i got 4 pinsize whiteheads on my forehead, which probably doesnt sound like much, but im not sure if it means they are coming back. Accutane is still probably the best chance of being mostly clear though, haven't got any big pimples in a long time, and my blackheads are still gone. Also proactive sucks, you're not missing out on much, it is basically just overpriced BP, and y
  10. Hey it could just be the IB and nothing to do with internal stuff. I got like the biggest pimple of my life underneath my right eye, during the first month of accutane. Actually not the biggest since it wasnt raised that much, but it was long like almost 2inches and hard, i dont think it was inflamed though. I dont really know what type of pimple it was, and yeah I dont think i've ever gotten one in that area before. Also my IB though not that bad mainly happened in an area with occasional brea
  11. Not a lot, some...... I think the majority look like someone you would see at work or school, they just have a lot more people working on them to make them look beautiful. Of course there are some that are stunning w/o all the makeup, but, again, I've seen stunning women in real life, too. I think that was her point. It's some of those stunning women you see in real life, that are the ones that become models and actresses. I mean many of them are scouted in the streets, so this is before
  12. Damn that must of been hella embarrassing lol. I havent even had a bad experience yet, but i hate hairdressers, mainly just the staring at my face for that long, and thats without something bleeding!
  13. haircut basically lol Mainly I just dont want to look in the mirror for like half an hour straight just staring at myself, to see all the marks and shit, also paranoid of hairdressers thinking 'wtf' or making a comment about my skin, when cutting my hair i'm not embarassed with the other stuff though, especially doctor you shouldnt be , they are there to help, and they would of seen much worse stuff then acne. edit: actually yeah when I broke out probably was a little embarassed for the other
