If i stop Accutane early will my acne come back eventually?

It will anyway: Accutane / Isotretinoin keeps acne at bay for months or years after you stop. Unless it self-cures (and it eventually will), it will return and you can hit it with the big guns again. ...Read more

WHY does isotretinoin cause your skin to get WORST purge pores before it suddenly stops and clears?

WHY does isotretinoin cause your skin to get WORST purge pores before it suddenly stops and clears?

This causes pores deep in the skin layers that are already affected to move up to the surface thus making it look like your acne is getting worse before it gets better. Hope this was helpful.

Dr. Anil Shah Dr. Shah

Cessation of tretinoin can lead to a reversal of some of the benefits. Not all patients respond to tretinoin creams and others can have overdrying effects. ...Read more

I was taking birth control for acne and than I decided to stop taking it. I'm going back on it now, will my acne flare up when I start using it again?

Like life, always: trial & error, no way to predict with any certainty, vastly too many variables which no one fully understands. Medicine is low tech, the real Hi-Tech is within. Given acne in past, study treatments for acne, e.g. https://www.healthtap.com/#user_questions/6804092 & http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/1069804 for some basics on mainstream methods which usually help. ...Read more

Does lemon juice help in vanishing acne scars and blackheads completely? I heard, it's effective. How much time will it take?

Does lemon juice help in vanishing acne scars and blackheads completely? I heard, it's effective. How much time will it take?

It won't help: You're almost a grown-up and I hope this is the worst bit of misinformation that you fall for. If you have a lot of blackheads with your acne, your best first choice is a topical retinoic acid derivative. If you don't have this handy, topical benzoyl peroxide as tolerated is your best friend. If this does not clear you in two weeks, get with your personal physician who will add a prescription Rx. ...Read more
