Hi,
I've been using Differin for over a year now (after trying Tazorac for about 5 months, which I thought irritated my skin too much) along with Duac for 6 months and Septra DS to use 'as needed for acne flares.' Thankfully, my skin looks better than it had about 1.5 years ago, but I'm developing cysts on my cheeks. I had to get one injected this November because it was so huge and red. Does anyone know if I would make a good candidate for Accutane? My brother went on it about 6 years ago and had great results. My father had bad cystic acne through his 20's, and I don't want to go through that. For some reason, my Differin seems to have "stopped working" (if that makes sense), and I was wondering if anyone thinks I should ask my derm about going on Accutane to prevent major future problems.

Thanks so much for your help!
