  1. Ive been on Oratane (Australian Accutane) for nearly 21 weeks now and have seem a massive improvements with minor side effects. Have been on 20mg every day, 40mg mon, wed, fri. My skin is brand new and im so happy with it. My derm said that my next visit may be my last one, although i still have some teeny tiny little bumps on my cheeks. Is accutane supposed to clear everything? Or does it just clear up the big massive ones? And im scared to go off it incase the acne comes back.
  2. I have been on Accutane since May 10, 2012. I have been on 60 mg a day. My last dermatologist appointment was on August 23rd, exactly one week ago. At my appointment, they asked me about my last menstrual cycle. I told them, "Oh, thats easy. I was on it during my last appointment on July 23rd, so I would've started last month, July, around the 21st." It was already the 23rd of August and no period. I peed in the cup anyway and let them test me. Must've been negative because my derm g

Instead, I noticed that my face is now co
  4. I've seen several friends go visit China, and come back with 2x worse acne. One guy actually didn't have acne, and he came back with face full of it. I guess the main reason is the poor air quality there. I'm 18, and don't really get breakouts anymore after I started working out and drinking lots of green tea. But I'm afraid the trip is going to agrevate my acne problem. What can I do to prepare for the potential onslaught?
  5. Hello and Happy Halloween! Ever since middle school, I have suffered from pretty severe cystic acne. My mood is largely based on how bad the cysts on my face are. When I get cystic acne, I get it bad. Recently I was suffering from a cyst on my forehead the size of a golf ball! These have cysts have made me suicidal in the past, and usually throw me in an extreme depression. So that's my acne situation, and I was prescribed accutane and can pick it up tomorrow. I am having second thoughts
