The other 50% of patients need a second course of 2mg per kg for an additional 20 weeks. A rare person needs a third course. Even if acne returns after one course of Accutane it is usually very minor compared to before treatment. ...Read more

Is benzoyl peroxide effective for acne my skin is oily I have few pimples but much of post acne hyper pigmentation red marks..
Yes: Otc benzoyl peroxide 2% or 5% costs $5-10. Be careful: it will bleach clothing, towels, bed sheets. It is irritating & drying near lips & eyelids. If you control acne, you will slowly recover more normal color. A dermatologist can help with prescriptions. If you get branded benzoyl peroxide (proactiv) you will pay 10x more for same thing. ...Read more

My acne imprve frm tretinoin & clindamycin now iam using hydroquinone 2% for acne marks my face kinda pale using it but no iritation?
Keep working: I'm glad this combination (with retin a, (tretinoin) i see) has given you a good result. Stop using the hydroquinine. You're more likely to make yourself look bad and the brown marks fade in a few months. Nobody cares about them. Keep managing your disease until it self-cures -- mine did at age 50. Enjoy being young, stay fit, focus on learning career skills, and again, nobody cares about your brown marks. ...Read more
