  1. Im very skeptical of using moisturizer because it makes my skin feel even more oilier, i do see the point of if i use it it'll protect it and might not produce more oil but ive tired it in the past and it didnt work.
  2. Hello I'm a 22 year old male who has just finished my second course of accutane 6 months ago, luckily i havent had any major breakouts yet but my nose blackheads have came back and my oily skin has came back but not as bad but i am scared that as the months go on my skin will get oilier and the major breakouts will follow. Im researching and trying everything, i don't eat anything with high sugar, i only drink water, eat loads of fruits and veg, no milk, exercise few times a week, Im taking

    Post Accutane Question - Redness

    My reddness is seeming to fade but unfortunately the oiliness seems to be returning and i fear that it won't be long until all my acne comes back again. I have done 2 courses now last one was a 4 month with a a 60mg a day so a high dose. I couldn't possibly look at a 3 course i couldn't bare the side effects during and after the course, has anyone had success with antibiotics or other treatments for oiliness?
  5. Hello, I completed my 2nd accutane course about 40 days ago and i have been clear since. But my face is still quite red and if i go into a hot room or something it goes red raw.

    Accutane Questions, Please Help!

    With taking small amounts do you still get the initial breakout and things? Does taking a small amount keep spots from appearing too? and what do you class as a "long term"? Thanks

    Accutane Questions, Please Help!

    "I hope you're aware that you maybe not be free of acne once your course is over. You might still get the occasional pimple - don't consider it "acne" though." I understand this may be the case, but i've read that people have been clear 100% for a very long time so i'm just keeping some faith that this might happen to me, fingers crossed. Also is anyone aware if it will be okay to take vitamins alongside accutane. I understand you cant take vitamin A. But what about Zinc, Vitamin E and D
  8. Hello everyone Situation: Second course of accutane (60mg), male (just turned 21 yrs old), extremely greasy face, mild-moderate acne. I'm on day 70 of my second course and things seem to be getting better (*touches wood*) but I've got a few questions if anyone can help. I seen my dermatologist a few weeks back and i found out that i am on a 4 month plan (He said he might bump me up abit nearer the end so maybe last few weeks i'll be on 80mg a day) but i am worried that this is too sh

    Coming to the end of week 6 now. Started using Cetaphil gentle wash and Cetaphil daily facial moisturizer with SPF 15. Got my 6 week check up with my derm on Tuesday, do not think ill get a dosage increase due to me being on 60mg a day and weighing 70kg. Started to get a rash on my top part of my hands but nothing a little aqueous cream can't sort out. Still getting spots every other day, the initial breakout "seems" to be calming down (touch wood). I've grown abit of a beard to try and

    2Nd Accutane Course Diet Help

    There is different type of tablets of accutane. A certain type doesn't need a fatty meal to be consumed better but some others do. The instructions on my medication does say take with high fat meal.
  13. Hey everyone, i made a blog but i thought just making a question in a forum would be easier. Here my blog (From start to week 2) WEEK 3 (21 Days) I am still getting new spots more or less everyday or every second day so i guess im still going through the initial breakout, hopefully this will stop at week 5 or sooner because it is my birthday (woo) then and it would be great if it did. At the start i was drinking a lot of milk and other dairy products to try and get the "high fat"
  14. Hello guys, I am currently 3 weeks into my second accutane course and i am trying to eat a high fat meal when taking my tablet. I am on 60mg a day (20mg Morning, 20mg Afternoon, 20mg Dinnertime). Does anyone know of 'high fat' meal that does not contain dairy? I'm eating alot of eggs which i understand have amount 5grams of fat. Thanks
