Posted by espejo1, 04 February 2012 · 1,366 views

Wow so it's been a while... I'm going to do a major update (hence the title) starting right now!

So the last time I wrote, my skin was a lot better but my lips were horrible...inflamed, red, raw..hurt to eat, touch, I couldn't kiss.. even when the wind blew on them it was weird. I went to the derm and he said it was an allergic reaction......

Hello all (or actually, hello myself because judging by the wealth of comments I'm the only one reading this hehe)..

So, last entry I complained about a lip issue that is, sadly, still affecting me. It has definitely improved a LOT but I showed no allergic reaction to vaseline and aquaphor (duh) so I have no idea what originally caused my lips to get...

Week 5...

Starting week 5... Oh man.

WELL.. good news: Those cheek pimples aren't pimples anymore, just red spots. Woohoo!

bad news: I have some sort of reaction on my lips to something and they are now inflamed and peeling and bubbly. That sounds disgusting.. but it is. I mean, it's not as extremely noticeable as I FEEL like it is (I think because the lips...

1 Month..... Blah

Well it's been exactly one month since I started taking Isotretinoin... a little over 4 weeks. I was doing fine in the beginning breakout-wise but in the past few days... actually the past like 2 days, I've broken out in 3-4 pimples on my cheek. Quite the downer especially because, even though they're not cysts or anything, they're not small, and...

Week 3-Ish

accutane, 30, mg, week, 3
So It's almost week 3. I'm just writing because I've noticed some changes.. like a break out on my cheek! It's not super bad. It just gets my mind spinning of how bad it could get. BUT I must choose not to freak out and to remain calm.

Everyday is different.. some days my lips are super dry, other days my chin or right next to my nose is...

Week 2

week, 2, accutane, 30, mg, day

I'm a little late but whatevs. So, so far everything's been going fine. Like I mentioned before, my skin got really oily at first (or at least had an oily look) but was also flaky dry, which was annoying and made me self-conscious but I could handle it (I've had years of skin problems, come on). Now my skin is less oily appearing but still a...

Week 1

So! I'm on a pretty low dose.. and sometimes I'm concerned because I think "will this be as effective???" but other times I'm grateful because the side effects of isotretinoin do freak me out.

Is anyone else on/has taken 30 mg/day? What was your experience like? How long were you on it for?

So far, in 1 week, I have some less...

Allow Me To Introduce Myself

introduction, accutane, blog and 2 more...

So I'm a 22 yr-old female and I'm on 30 mg/day of Isotretinoin (some brand called Mayesta I think), which I started about a week ago. This will be an experience 1. because it's isotretinoin... pretty intense! and 2. because I'm currently living in Madrid,...
