Although accutane might be OK for you I would strongly recommend going to a dermatologist about it as opposed to buying tablets from a friend.

Have you tried Retin A?
is your hair in your face alot?
i used to get acne on my forehead only, then i took my hair off my face, and it cleared up gradually. but now i have acne in other places... hope that wasnt a trade off! :P
Oh, and dont borrow someones elses Accutane!!! that could potentially be very harmful, as their are strong side effects in some people, and without your doc knowing your medical history, it could potentially be dangerous for you to take it.

Taking accutane for mild acne is a needless risk, i would suggest you try either a tetracycline, or retin a, you should also never use accutane without consulting a dr and having the necasary blood tests etc....
Take Care.

what shampoo do you use? many shampoos contain vitamin E which is an acne stimulant. if you want a recommendation, "Infusium 23" is a good shampoo that doesn't contain vitamin E.
