My 17 year old son has been taking Roaccutane (isotretinoin) for 6 weeks now and his skin seems to be getting worse. He has the expected dry skin but tht's not the problem. The problem is not only the increased spots on his face and their redness, but the possible increased loss of confidence in both the drug and in himself. Is this normal and can anyone reassure me (his mother) that things will improve. Also how long will it take to turnaround? he was taking 40mg a day for the first 4 weeks then moved up to 60mg for the 5th and 6th week.
