    What exactly does accutane do to blackheads?

    Somewhere around one month they started just kind of coming out. One night squeezed alot of them out and got a huge red mark on my nose that stayed for a few days. Exfoliating the area they are in helps alot, you could try that once they start loosening up a bit.

    Accutane woes...

    Hello all, I've been on accutane for about 4 months tomorrow. I will remain on it for 2 more months. Somewhere halfway through the second month I cleared up almost completely and started getting about 1 pimple every so often that would go away within a matter of days(sometimes tiny sometimes medium sized)...about 3 or 4 times I completely cleared and though that the acne was gone forever. In fact on Friday I was completely 100% clear, until Sunday morning I woke up with 2 medium sized pimples on

    Day 51 My skin is improving on a daily basis, a few small minor pimples that dont bother me and arent red or inflamed. One month from now I'm pretty sure I'll be 100% clear, including red marks. [attachmentid=4960] [attachmentid=4962]

    conqueracne - Thank you, I have been experiencing side effects. My back hurts alot(especially if I bend or do any heavy lifting), dry eyes, chapped lips(Burts Bee's works wonders), blurred vision(ocassionally), and every once in a while, EXTREMELY flaky/dry skin. Accutane is all about how much you want your acne to be gone for good. I had enough a long time ago, so the side effects really don't phase me at all. It also depends on how much you will be taking. I was on 20mg for month one(and I did

    Day 36 Sorry I haven't been updating as much, but I've got some good news...my acne on my temples(where it was worst) is dead...all of it, theres just some red spots. I had a pimple on my forehead last night that didn't go away after a few days so I popped it, and its well on its way out. I also had a small one on my cheek but its drying very quickly. I'm almost clear, this is kind of like a dream come true...but is there anything I can do to get the blackheads out of my nose?(while on accutane

    Thanks bushie, but I'm still breaking out, and still getting oil.(Not much, but I want none) Days 30-33 Thanks to the pharmacy not being open this holiday weekend, I was unable to get my perscription refilled, so a a minor breakout, but still...I'm now on 40mg/day. After I took my pill yesterday later on in the day I felt very, very dry...it was nice. I just woke up and took a shower and my face feels super dry, but smooth at the same time. Anyhow, I've got to go take a final, but I'll post pi

    Day 26-29(Pictures) Hello all, nothing new to report, other than I start 40mg today. My skin is still kind of oily, which is suprising to me, but I think it might be because of the Vitamin B5...so I'm going to stop taking that altogether and just stick with Omega 3-6-9 and Vitamin E supplements. Pictures are in the gallery.

    Day 25 Dryness....like woah. I didn't moisturize too much today(I haven't been because my skins been doing okay as far as dryness goes and moisturizing makes me shinier) and my skin flaked so bad, it was I was shedding. No active blemishes, other than a few spots. So yeah, I'm gonna start moisturizing alot more often and washing my face alot less.

    Day 23 Hmm...things are going well, I still have some stubborn acne that refuses to go...but I think it'll be gone before long. The oil is pretty much gone. I'm lovin' it. I've been spot treating with 10% BP and ice, which is working well. Yeah so...I guess I'll post some more pictures in a few days...

    Thanks man, things are going well for me now, I hope they're going well for you too. Day 22 Okay, so I forgot to wash my face before I went to bed last night. I woke up with a gigantic whitehead above my lip. But it doesnt matter...why you ask? Because there was 0 oil on my face. None. Anywhere. Someone stole it or something, and they can keep it. Anyhow, I popped the whitehead(the sterile way) and its just a little red dot you cant even see because of my facial hair. All my other acnes have g
