: I am going on Acutane a second time. I was on it for six months last year and my acne cleared up. my face looked great now the acne came back with a vengence, i look horrible. I read about vit B5. What should I do.
see a gynecologist and have your hormones checked first. most adult women with acne have a hormone imbalance. i went on accutane a second time and it worked for about one month and then it all came back, and i lost a third of my hair. i switched to a birth control that has an androgen blocker in it and that, along with retin a, has kept me clear for two years now.
