  1. I have been on accutane for 5 months for body acne. I have 1 month left. My body acne has improved gradually, I am getting almost no breakouts. However, I have a lot red marks from acne on my chest and back. Will these red marks fade with time? How long will it take for these red marks to fade completely?
  2. I am a male and I have been on accutane for 5 months. During around the start of month 4, I started having hair growing everywhere on my body. For example, my legs and arms have much more hair than they did before I started accutane. I had no hair on my stomach, and now I have hair on my stomach. Is this normal? Will the extra hair that grew on my body from accutane go away after I am done with it? If so, how long will it take for this extra hair to go away?
  3. I am going to start accutane in a few days. All of the side effects seem pretty mangaeable with the exception of nosebleeds. I am worried about getting nosebleeds at bad times like when I am in class. What are the best things to do to limit the number of nosebleeds that I get while I am on accutane? For those of you who have been on accutane, how often do you get nosebleeds?
  4. I am thinking about going on accutane for my body acne. I used to get some acne on my face, but it has nearly gone away during the past year. If I go on accutane for my body acne, is it possible that my face will break out?
  5. I am 21 and I have had moderate acne on my chest and back for a long time. I used to have acne on my face, but it has almost gone away entirely in the past year. Will my chest and back be like my face and just go away at a certain age? Have other people had chest and/or back acne just go away at a certain age?
  6. On my face I have one spot on my cheek that won't go away. There two pimples that are directly next to each other, which essentially form one large pimple. This spot has been on my face for nearly a month and has not really gotten that much better. I have been applying the regimen as described. What can I do to help make this spot go away?
  7. What are good undershirts to wear while on the body regimen? The main thing I am looking for is the least irritating undershirt. I would also like a shirt that does not show underneath a t-shirt.
  8. I have just started using the body regimen and I have one question. Typically I do the body regimen in the morning. I shower in the evening and wash by body including acne infected areas with soap. Then, right before bed I do the body regimen again. My question is on the regimen should I keep washing by body with soap when I shower? Or should I skip washing my body with soap and just do the regimen while I shower instead of washing my body with soap in the shower and then doing the body regimen
