Accutane and PIH
Jul 23, 2013
Is there anyway to remove chronic PIH and acne blemishes and acne dark spots?

i have altered my diet, Quit smoking, and exercise frequently. but all to no avail>?

i am on accutane now and will be for another 3 months (total 9 months). my derm puts me on a 30mg per day dosage for 9 months. i am 63kg and he wants a total intake of 120mg/kg, thus a sum of 63kgx120mg/kg=7560mg of accutane. My derm does not want to but me on a higher dosage as he is afraid of the side effects.
Currently i am unsure of what to do with these stubborn blemishes and gosh do they look even worse while i am on accutane!...

Does lemon juice work? i have been applying it for 2 days straight. i dilute it so that it does not burn. i wish to avoid retin a (i have an unused tube at home) as i am afraid of the redness. you see, unlike most people my skin while on accutane does not flake off or dry off EVEN when i am on retin a! it puzzles me....

also is sunscreen really essential? i havent been incorporating it into my regime.....
