  1. Hi, I am 40 and have suffered from acne for years...although now is worse than in my younger years. It's more cystic now.....but I have attacked the problem with aggression and am now on Accutane. This is my third time with it since my early 20's and the dose is much lower than my first attempt.

I do believe the nodule cysts I'm experiencing now is hormone related....or at least I hope it is because then I know there is something I can do.
