did your acne come back after 13 years?[/QUOTE]

Yes although I can't say for sure it's because the Accutane effect has "gone off" after all these years. After Accutane, I still had acne but definately not the deep severe cystic acne I had before. And after my 3rd child 3 years ago, my face suddenly just became clear. I thought - oh great, finally - I am over acne at my age (I was 32 at that time). Then suddenly, in the past 6 months, it become gradually worst again. Acne is confined to both sides of jawline only - rest of face is clear.

It is frustrating especially when you had experienced clear skin before.

After 6 months of trying the "alternative" method, i.e. detox body, herbal supplements, etc etc, I had no choice but to finally see the derm last week. He is currently putting me on doxycycline and differin. Except for the period when I used Accutane, this is the 1st time I am taking antibiotics and prescribed topicals - and this after 20 years. So, I hope it will at least control my acne.
