  1. I have been on accutane for 4 months. I was working outside for about eight hours yesterday in the sun. I did not have sun block on and now Im very concerned. I woke up this morning with my forehead covered in blisters and some on my face as well. I really need advice!

    Thanks everyone

  2. Hey Everyone,

    I was on accutane (generic forms--sotret,claravis, etc) two times now. I am 24, male. I have noticed siginificant improvement but I still break out pretty consistently now. I was wondering if anyone has been on accutane more than two times and if they stayed clear after that third course.


  3. Hey everyone,

    Not sure if this is in the right forum, but I am a 24 yr old male and have had these brown marks for a LONG time and don't know how to get rid of them, they are really bothersome.

    Any help on products that work would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks again everyone!

  4. yeah I know. Everyone here takes good care of their skin, more so than other people. It sucks that we have to suffer and have people tell us things we already know. Thanks for the reply bro and good luck to you also, I just graduated college so I know you will not have a problem.

  5. I really have no idea what to do anymore. My acne never seems to stop, and if I shave it gets ten times worse. I have been accutane(generic) twice, just finishing my second course in February. I was all clear and the past few months have been awful. I don't go out if I don't have to and I feel trapped because I don't know what I should do next. Thanks for reading.

  6. Hey bro, I know it is depressing. Especially when you have friends with no acne at all. You have to just know that you are not alone, everyone on these boards feels the same way. Acne does not define who you are and if people ever say anything to you, ignore them. Just be yourself, acne just happens to the best of us. Don't look in the mirror every second of your life, go out and live life. People will like you for you not because of acne on your face, just relax even though its hard and you will be fine, your acne will go away when you stop stressing, it only makes shit worse.

    Seriously, I wish you the best of luck and don't let this get you down bro.

  7. What was your acne state before accutane may i ask? As you stated, after the first course your acne will be very much subsided if it comes back so maybe your skin will work with topicals now as if it didnt before you did your first course.

    cystic before but now its mild to moderate and no topicals work...literally tried everything. I went today she put me on 20mg...ill see how that works..

  8. Hey,

    I was on Sotret for 5 months and my acne cleared up but has been back for several months. Given my acne is not as bad as it once was but it is still driving me crazy. I get tons of white heads and pimples. I was thinking about asking my derm to let me go accutane again. I have tried everything out there and nothing works, the only thing that did was sotret. Do you think that my derm will put me on it again? I don't know what the protocol is with going on accutane again.

    Thanks for the advice.

  9. My sister and I have suffered from really bad acne. I went on accutane after I tried literally everything else. My sister chose not too, being a female I believe the side affects can be more harsh. She went on birth control and now has almost perfect skin, it really is amazing so I would say stick with that for awhile. Good Luck...I think it will work for you.
