If this happens farther back in the nose then you could get a slight amount of blood in the back of your throat. This could show up when you spit. However, i really think you should have your dermatologist take a look. ...Read more

Have to be on Accutane for one month maybe 2 months depending on my dermatologist , does it cure acne scars?
Sorry, no.: Accurate reduces acne outbreaks that can lead to new scars, but does not remove or reduce old scars. Scars (caused by any process or injury) are permanent and require other surgical intervention for improvement, such as dermabrasion or laser resurfacing.

Are there coupons available for Accutane for people without insurance or is it possible to get samples for the first month or two?
Nope: Accutane is no longer sold in us. Only generics are available. Generic drug ousts don't give samples or coupons (dream on). But certain pharmacies offer good discounts on some medications. There are also national pharmacy card distributors that have discounts on certain drugs. Please get on the net and do the due diligence to find something for yourself. Good luck. ...Read more
