I'm a male and almost 20 years old. I been on accutane now for 20 weeks of a 6 months course. I weigh 162lbs. First the first 2 months I was on 40mg and month 3-5 on 60mg. Next month (final month)will be on 70 or 75mg. I have moderately severe acne on face, moderate on shoulders and mild on back.

Everything is about 80-90% better. But I have some white little bumps under my skin and some of these are raised on my back and shoulders (accutane got rid of tons of those but only face) and I still have a good amount of very tiny blackheads on my body. And on my face where I had little blackheads, if you come very close and I extent my skin you can see very thin greyish blackhead leftovers.

This month I have broken out with only a few real zits on my face and body and several very tiny pimples. Am I doing good? Should the remaining stuff still clear? I thought I'd be clear by now!?

And also my zits always healed really slow on the medication, I thought they would heal faster? Either me or the derm take care of my breakouts!
