  1. I just finished a 7 month 40mg x 2 daily accutane routine and my skin is really cleared up and is almost perfect. However, in some of the places it left red marks from where the most severe acne was pushed out by the accutane. Its like my cheeks, nose, and a bit on my forehead. I don't know if it is rosacea or just redness. Has anyone heard of anything that helps this. I usually just wash my face 4 or 5 times daily with dove soap. I read about a cream called Prosacea on the other board, has anyo

  3. I started 40 x 2 daily about a month and a half ago and i had a TERRIBLE IB and its starting to clear up a bit but still really red. I am having headaches about an hour after I take each pill and they really suck. Also some swelling and itchiness in some places. But Im staying positive.
  4. Yeah, I am going through this right now. ive been on 80 mg a day from the start and ive ben on it for about a month and a half. They almost don't even look like pimples in some areas theyre like massive pustules and when they dry up they turn all black and its disgusting. But sometimes they seem to fall off on their own or while in the shower. Is this bad? Could that cause scarring?
  5. yeah my derm did prescribe me to prednisone and it definitely helped with the swelling and it started to clear up a bit. It also didn't make it so irritable or itch as much. I just think its crazy how much there is actually to come out. I mean how much puss can one person have? How long has it taken any of yall that have experienced this to see it clear up? Also would you recommend actually peeling some of them off once they're "dead" or dried up? Thanks for the replies
  6. Yeah, I have been having maybe the worst initial breakout in the history of accutane (maybe) but my neck and under my chin and the top of my cheeks were super swollen with puss and redness so he prescribed me to prednisone. Actually I had no side effects and it was the only thing that allowed me to sleep b/c i itched all night.
  7. I have been on accutane for about a month and a half now 40 mg 2x daily. I didn't really have too bad of acne when i started but it was definitely coming. I had been taking tetracycline for like 3 years prior and it was starting to not work. Anyway, after about a week or two on accutane my face was not only having an initial breakout, but the massive pustules were like drying up all over my entire face! I mean to the point where on my cheeks and around my jawline you couldn't even feel skill jus
