I've been on Accutane twice now (well almost completing my second stint) and although it is notably better in comparison to when I was not on it, there is still a worrying amount of it still there. Even when I'm on it, I do get the occasional outbursts.

Incidentally, alot of my friends also had acne problems, but after several weeks of accutane it was completely gone, and never re-appeared after they completed their cycle. In comparison, my first stint worked extremely well, but came back a few months later. In my second stint, the process has been really slow and I'm worried that they will come back after it is finished.

Is there any way I can treat this effectively? Does it's persistence indicate an allergy of some sort?
