    Acne returning 2 weeks off of Accutane.

    I was on Accutane for about 7 months, starting at 40mg, then at 80mg for the last 3 months. I weigh 115 lbs, I'm 18 years old. Before Accutane, my acne was moderate [tons of whiteheads, oil, and about 2-3 cysts on my face at any given time.]

    Now, about 2 and a half weeks off of Accutane, I've been breaking out. BIG cysts. I get one, and as soon as it goes away, another pops up. It's been really horrible on the old self-esteem. And of course, I called my dermo and she said to start applying retin-A and maybe they'll go away.

    Well anyway, has anyone else experienced this? It's so bizarre, I don't know what to do. I'm going to start taking B-5 in a couple of days to see if that helps.

    Another odd thing. All of the breakouts are in the same area- my cheekbone/outer cheek area. Isn't that weird? My forehead, my cheeks, my chin, and the lower parts of my face are still wonderfully clear.
