This is my third week on accutane (20 mg per day) , and i am still breaking out like never before . I have cystic acne on my jawline and they have been there consistently for 2 months now . There are also few cysts on my upper cheek that is below my eye .. and they are so big that they almost cover up my whole face. I dont see any improvement in them , rather i am becoming extremely tanned and my previous scars are becoming all brown and red . Plus the rest of my face is now full of blackheads and whiteheads. My only clear zone is my forehead right now.. i m just not getting it. . Though my lips have become dry but my face is still oily and crap.. how long will this last ?
How fast Accutane works is different for different people ... give it more time.
