    Well I am on month 3 of accutane for the 2nd time.. I took 40mg the first month and it cleared me up. It was amazing and I was so happy I didn't have much of an initial breakout. I took 40mg again the 2nd month because there was some problems with my insurance otherwise I would have been on 60mg. I went to my derm on Monday and I can now get 60mg..just waiting for the pharmacy to call me. My skin is clear again and throughout these past few months I just got a couple of really small

    Hello everybody! Okay well I officially have mild acne. For this past 2-3 weeks my skin has just been breaking out again(no more one or two small pimples).. So right now I have a few on each cheek and the sides of my face. It doesn't look too horrible but since my skin had been clear for so long after accutane, it really just depressed my yesterday. Yesterday was my derm. appt. and we talked and talkedetc. I didn't want to use any topicals or antibiotic again bcs I have used all of the

    Hi!My story is somewhat like yours. Except I'm 17 and I started having acne young lol. I tried everything and antibiotics also and birth control and was too scared to go on accutane because I felt my acne wasn't thaaat bad. Birth control for me,like you, helped but I did not get 100% clear skin. When I stopped birth control I broke out like crazy, of course because hormones adjust. But I finally went on accutane last year at this date I believe..wow or November 16 2009. I took it until June 1st
  4. Wow the person who broke out after two years is so lucky. I took accutane for 6-7 months and after finishing I kept clearing up. Here and there I would get one or two very small pimples and it would go away quick. But lately now after 5 &1/2 months I am breaking out. I feel like I have very mild acne. I know it's just a breakout but after months of being clear I had a nervous breakdown. My derm told me it's normal to break out a bit after accutane and to use topicals but I haate topicals. I

    Okay well my skin was doing great. It was just sometimes when I would get a small pimple. Idk why lately I have been getting small whiteheads and just idk I am so sad right now. I don't want to complain but should I go on accutane again? I really don't know what to do. Idk how to describe my skin at the moment.

    WOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH I can not believe it's been 5 months... My skin is still clear. I have broken out SOMETIMES..and as I said last time it's like two or three small pimples. It's usually before my period when I get it. I remember it was one time when I felt my skin was really going upside down but that was because I didn't sleep well or drink water at all. But now everything is fine. I don't have a lot of marks and I never got clarisonic. I still want it, but I forgot all about it. I've

    2months ad 22days after accutane

    My skin is clear-ER. I didn't get clarisonic yet. The marks on my face have 90% faded away by itself. I am using this papaya soap, "Likas", and it has helped a lot with the marks. My hair is finally not as dry and actually starting to get soft again. I have been using Garnier Fructis triple nutrition fortifying cream conditioner. My skin really isn't dry at all and my lips are normal. All together everything has been great and I am beyond thankful. Oh yeah; SOOMMMEEETIIIMMMES I have gotten

    1 mo. after accutane

    Hello everyone, I can't believe its been a month already; a month and 7 days to be exact. My skin still looks good, but the oiliness on my nose has come back. It's not at all like how it used to be though. Just by the end of the day I get a slight oiliness. Maybe it's just my eyes but, i feel like on my lower cheek/jawline I'm getting acne under my skin. But i guess its just marks, it just looks weird to me. Other people tell me there is absolutely nothing on my skin, so I guess I'm

    Day 17 - Does anyone have some advice?

    Accutane does make your skin veryy sensitive, so the differen gel is irritating it(itching,burning&red). Its too strong for your skin right now to use along accutane.Your breakout if probably not bcs of the differen..its normal to breakout your first month to even month 3. Accutane pushes out everything..so ya..your breakout will soon stop and your face will start clearing up =)Just stay strong and patient, but for now i think you should stick with good face lotion to decrease your dryness..

    its like magic; day 80

    thankssss =)i know how you feel, some of my marks are still on my face...but i think they will eventually go away, i know that you are not allowed to do laser treatments,chemical peels,etc., during accutane and at least 6 months after because the skin is still really sensitive..but i suggest you ask your derm for a cream first, i'm sure they'll know better than me hehe, because some marks may stay permanently. the cream my doctor gave me a while ago before i went to a derm for accutane is called
