Hi, I am 22 years old and I have been battling cystic acne ever since I was 11. It started right after I got the chicken pox.

I started the medication (40g) almost 4 weeks ago and when I began I had severe under the skin acne especially on my jaw line and chin area.

I'm 23 years old and about a year and a half ago I started breaking out considerably more than what I used to. My acne isn't super severe but its enough to be seen even with makeup on.

First of all, I don't reccomend Accutane for anyone who hasn't tried a plethora of other skin drugs first. I've had acne since I was like, 12, and now I'm 24. I've tried birth control, Differin, Retin-A, minocycline, tetracycline, etc. and nothing really seemed to make a difference. I've backed... READ MORE

If you have been searching for solutions for a multiple-year period, then please look no further. Accutane is your man.
