  1. My old doctor told me to use Tazorac and aczone at night and alternate which ones I use. I went to a new doctor for acne on my nec and chest and he gave Duac to use. He said if I want I could also use Duac in the morning. I'm thinking of using Tazorac at night everyday but for the mornings, what is better. Duac or Aczone?
  2. Oh well if the shaving area doesn't get cysts, then it's fine. Just wait 30 days post Accutane and then see what happens.
  3. I answered and commented in the bold. Definitely let me know about the facial hair situation.
  4. Well my skin was clear around Month 4/5 and it stayed clear almost a year after I got off. The medicine will still be in your body up to 6 months apparently which is why they say no waxing or anything like that for 6 months. If you're still getting those cysts and you're almost done with the course, ask your doctor for another month? BTW, 80mg a day is a strong amount so I would think you should be clear, but how much do you weight?
  5. My acne was VERY severe. I had painful cysts all over my face and boils over my back. 4+ years later and the scars on my back from the boils look like stab wounds lol that's how bad they were. I used Tazorac when I finished but after about a year I still started getting cystic acne (although not as much as the first time) so I went for a second course. My doctor was cool about it and knew how bad my acne could get so I went straight on the second course. I don't regret it because I knew it was m
  6. Well that was the same case for me. I was great on antibiotics but I didn't like the idea of being on it long term. I don't like the idea of being on any medication forever. Even with the side effects, I still think Accutane was the best thing that happened to me. The biggest side effect I had was hair loss and I think it's more common as what most doctors say. Assume that you'll lose hair and then decide whether you'd wanna go on Accutane or not. For me, I'm a guy and for the most part always h
  7. Accutane is tough. It's like a bipolar girlfriend lol one day you're clear and another you're have a breakout. Just stick with it and it'll work out. I'm no doctor so take my advice lightly but since you're breaking out at Month 5, try to push the doctor for 7 months instead of 6.
  8. Scars were indented scars. Those took a while to heal. Red marks were gone towards the end of the course. I mean in general, my red marks healed fast so I only had them while I had active acne. By month 4 I wasn't getting any acne so month 5-6 all the red marks were gone. I think this is more genetics because I know a lot of people who have red marks that last a very long time from what I used to read on the boards here. About plumping lol I don't really remember that happening.
  9. I think around the 4 month mark on the first course I noticed my hairline was receding and a few months later I grew out my hair a bit and noticed it was very thin and you could see my scalp even. Kept getting worse so I keep the hair buzzed now. I used to regret going on the course because thin hair is horrible, but luckily, I can pull off a buzzed head lol and I'd rather have clear skin. I don't know what percentage get hair loss, but as a guy, it can be very embarrassing with bad hair so you
  10. first course I was 90mg/day second: 60mg/day I was about 80kg so the first course was pretty high. I never had redness in my face like that.
  11. No I never got anything done. Scars on my back are still here but those were VERY bad. On my face, scars are pretty much gone but I always keep a stubble so I'm not 100% sure. Red marks took about 6 months to fade a good amount, 1 year and you can't even tell. I was VERY oily pre accutane. But Accutane made it dry and my skin is still very dry now without moisturizer.
  12. Took initial course of Accutane for 7 months...then one year later took another course for 6 months. That was 4 years ago (roughly). Ask away Some quick things: My hair is thinner and I have a receding hairline. (could be genetics but I'm pretty young so I'm sure Accutane caused it this soon) Skin is perfect, might get a few pimples but goes away within a day or two when I spot treat. All I use to maintain is cleansing with Cetaphil, moisturize with, Aveeno Doily Moisturizing Lo
  13. I was on 2 cycles of Accutane, I think about 6-8 months apart. Now I'm about 1 year since the last cycle but anyways, my skin is cleared besides occasional pimples here and there. I still have to use moisturizer because I get flaky time to time, but the main side effect that bothers me is hair loss. I'm only 18 and the top of my hair is thinning and falls out. I mean, it's not BALD so if my hair is buzzed it's fine, but I wish I could grow it out longer without it looking bad.
  14. I used to get these before Accutane too but I put it here because I'm on Accutane now. I get these weird rash things once in a while and it's red especially after I shave but it goes away after a few hours. What can it be? http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/bb123/P.../1238958277.jpg
