  1. What do you mean by "molting" lol? How severe was your acne? Wish you the best Well I guess that was poor diction but I just remember the top layer of my skin basically came off after a couple of weeks. My acne wasn't that bad it just was not curable with any other combonation of antibiotics/benzoyl peroxide/retenoids etc.
  2. Hey guys it's been forever since I've posted here because the miracle drug accutane cured me, for a couple of years at least. My skin was great for a year and a half to 2 years after I took my last pill. Now I am going back to the dermatologist with acne. She recommended another course of accutane, which I am considering, but I was wondering, what are the side effects like on the second course? I remember my lips cracking and bleeding and after the first couple of weeks I felt like my face w
  3. I took the full course of accutane for 6 months, this was about 1.5 years ago. My acne never went fully away, instead it just shifted from my forehead and cheeks to my chin and around my chin, and changed from whiteheads to cysts.

  8. I dont have bad acne, its just that some of it doesnt ever go away. I have decided to take accutane because Everyday I'm icing, washing, exfoliating, and dumping more and more cream onto my face. Also I take 2 antibiotics. My friends, 2 of them I stayed with in a hotel, only washed their faces twice a day w/ bar soap, and have no acne at all. This is why I chose accutane, so I wont spend the rest of my life worrying about all that nonsense cream, pills, washes, etc. Anyway, how many peopl

  10. Uhm, what is that white stuff that comes out of a pimple when you pop it?
