... over 3 months. He started on low dosage, then on high, back down on low, then to a complete stop. He started antibiotics and those were stopped as we'll and now we are back to 10mg of Acutane. He has also been on a low dose of steroids to help with inflammation for a couple of months. The inflammation on his cheeks has been a non-stop nightmare. We are afraid that he will scar and we are not sure if Acutane is actually working. We know that it gets worse before getting better but the "worst" has lasted way too long. Please help.
