Can anyone give me any advice I've been taking Accutane for 5 weeks and I've been having a really bad break out for 3 weeks , and I've had to go back into antibiotics again which I didn't want, I'm feeling like I want to stop, I haven't read great things for this for HS , having a really bad day 😣😥

      Sorry to hear that Christine it totally sucks that there's no real treatment out there, how big are your boils? Also have you tried changing your diet ? I've also been reading alot about the pill helping alot off people so I've just started that I was clear for 6 weeks before taking Accutane which sucks as know I've had a outbreak , is yours classed as stage 2 ?
