  1. i broke out badly with retin-a after accutane. super oily skin and cysts!!! i was horrified. i switched to benzoyl peroxide and they went away
  2. awww im jealous. i want accutane, too! i will wait a month and ask my derm, too *fingers crossed* how long do you intend to take it?
  3. okaY! keep us posted how bad is ur skin? how many actives do u have now? I HAVE THREE SMALL CYSTS. no white heads though anymore due to sulfur mask. it seems to control small pimples but does nothing for cysts. i started putting BP on those today.
  4. it definitely is serious for me. serious enough for me to consider accutane again... but ill try topicals first for a few weeks and see how it goes. are you by any chance on accutane or taken accutane before?
  5. thanks! i know my acne isn't that bad, but it drives me crazy.. seriously. if it doesnt clear up in one to two months, i will go insane. but i'll wait it out first with topicals. just switched to a sulphur mask. thanks for the responses.
  6. same here. used every antibiotic possible with zero results. i've tried also intense pulse light, a million creams on my face... which i bet have had more side effects. i felt healthier more than anything on tane. also on a sulphur mask now keep me posted. my small whiteheads are all gone. i just have one painful cyst on my cheek, though. rest of my breakout last week dried out already, just red marks. ill wait it out a month and see where it goes. ill be working (first job) starting november
  7. im on the same boat... i took accutane around a year ago. 30mg also the entire six months, no initial breakout, and no side effects but dry lips. recently ive been breaking out again. id say its mild... been using BP all year with great results. i switched to a sulfur mask (as this used to calm my skin pre-accutane) so ill see how it works out for me. i'll give it around a month. if it doesn't work, i think i might consider accutane again. i've been taking praventin (oral supplement for acne...
  8. i popped my last pill in july of last year. and exactly a year later, sometime a month ago... my skin is starting to break out. its no where as bad as before... probably 1/15th of what it was when i first took accutane, but it bothers me.. im used to having perfect skin. and now i have like 3-4 active pimples around my face and some red marks from this month's breakout. im reviewing now for my accounting board exams, which i will take in three weeks, so i'm really very stressed. i also moved
  9. also thinking of a second course, though my acne is not as bad as the firs time... please keep us posted. im a 23 year old female. wat was your dose/how long did u take it first time around? i took a low dose for 8 months, and i dont think i reached the 120 mg/kg cumulative dose. its been a year since i popped my last pill. getting really depressed again, and am hoping for a second round, but my derma prescribed me praventin (some new oral acne pill thats like a food supplement, which i dont t
  10. i was on a 6-month accutane course. 30mg for first three months, 20-mg last three months. i weigh 47kg. i ended in late april. after a month, my face started getting oily again. and i had a minor breakout of tiny pimples. my derm put me back on accutane on june1st, a 2-month course at 20mg. is this considered a "second course" or just a continuation of my first, as i was off accutane for around 30 days only.
  11. i read in another forum that accutane decreases one's chance of outgrowing acne in the future... like for instance, sometimes the acne returns for some people after accutane... i read in that forum, that he/she will probably never outgrow acne as an adult because accutane screwed up their body system/skin functions etc. have you heard anything similar? that really sucks.
  12. they say accutane decreases one's chances of outgrowing acne in the future? is that true? also, i was on a 6-month accutane course. 30mg for first three months, 20-mg last three months. i weigh 47kg. i ended in late april. after a month, my face started getting oily again. and i had a minor breakout of tiny pimples. my derm put me back on accutane on june1st, a 2-month course at 20mg. is this considered a "second course" or just a continuation of my first, as i was off accutane for around 30
  13. at that time, my acne was cystic. i got maybe 3-4 cysts but nothing out of the ordinary. now, my acne is just maybe 3 microscopic pimples.
