  1. Hey everyone A quick history before asking my question. I am on my second course of accutane. The first time i was on 50mg a day for 7 months. I had a bad IB after about two months and then cleared. I was clear for a couple of months afterwards but then the acne returned and months of antibiotics didn't seem to do anything. I am now on my second course and the derm put me on a very low dose of 20mg every second day. I've been on this dosage for about 9 weeks. I had what seemed to be an IB aft
  2. Bro, know exactly how you're feeling man. On my second course of Roaccutane. First time round I had quite a hectic initial breakout and for some reason wasn't too bothered by it, still socialized a lot and really didn't think about it too much.

  9. Hey everyone My skin has only really been bad in the last two years which got me thinking about changes in my lifestyle that may have worsened it in this time. One thing that comes to mind is the use of whey protein almost daily as a training supplement. Does anyone know if there could be any correlation between this and my skin? Thanks...
  10. Had the exact same thing and am also a bit gym obsessed. About two years ago was drinking a lot and regularly and my skin cleared up. Since then only drink on weekends and my skin has been worse than ever. After loads of reading my explanation would be two fold. Firstly, it's been shown that heavy acute alcohol drinking decreases blood testosterone in men due to an effect on the testicular level. I would think that less testosterone means less DHT and therefore less sebum. On the other hand, exc
