  1. Around the 3rd week I vaguely remember getting a few pimples, but it wasn't anything outrageous, and it went away pretty quickly. I wouldn't even call it an initial breakout because it was rather harmless. I responded extremely well to low-dose accutane, I got 95% clear within 6 weeks. Most people who are scared to try accutane seem to fear the initial breakout, but you can't let that stop you.

Here's the breakdown: Cheeks: pretty much acne free Forehead: blackheads and small flesh colored bumps Nose: many blackheads Chin: blackheads, whiteheads, and the very rare inflammatory lesion. Retin-A Micro controls the blackheads on my forehead and chin, howev
  6. Hello, Is there a general consensus about certain food groups leading to oily skin? I have read many posts concerning this (for example: http://www.acne.org/...n-through-diet/) but it's all rather confusing and contradictory at times to me.
