4 people who have used accutane more than once!!

i have used accutane twice but i am still getting acne, whiteheads and a few pustules and i've got quite a few red marks!! i just wanted to know what other people in my situation are doing and if they are having any success? take accutane 4 the third time? i really don't want to but... if i have to i would. Any advice would be great with regards to treatment, stuff thats worked for post accutane users! i only get acne on my cheeks really but its a real pain!!even the smallest of spots leaves a red mark which stays for ages!! i really don't know what to do!! thanks

Re: 4 people who have used accutane more than once!!

You may be getting more red marks because you used Accutane. Some patients experience delayed healing and also problems with scarring (red marks). You should also avoid any kind of ablative laser or dermabrasion following Accutane. Roche (manufacturer) will tell you 6 months will be the time frame following Accutane to avoid these procedures. Even at one year you still have a chance of keloid scarring. You may consider skipping the Accutane this time and follow another skin care plan. Other readers have posted their positive results here, your best luck may come from their advice. There are many health concerns related to the use of Accutane that are not realized by many users until months and sometimes years following treatment. Good luck to you.

Re: 4 people who have used accutane more than once!!

Ed999 - I've been on accutane 3 times and it was 3 times too many. Sure, it cleared me up while I was on it and for a few months after, but I think my skin is more sensitive and itchy now than ever. I also think it takes longer to heal. I've also had a few other negative side-effects. My advice would be to try another method of treatment first.
