Week 11

Posted by dino23, 26 November 2012 · 321 views

Everything is starting to calm down, I have still gotten a few little ones that are gone the next day but my cysts are finally starting to *slowly* disappear. I also get these random weird black scars and it will start bleeding when I wash my face and dry up the next day and slowly start to disappear.. they are so weird because they are only full of blood-...

Week 10

Posted by dino23, 19 November 2012 · 309 views

Week ten was pretty similar to week 9, not a whole lot going on. Still waiting for scars from cysts to fade. Only one active whitehead on my neck right now, I still see some blackheads on my checks but they aren't even noticeable. There is one scar that is bothering me and it happened during my first week of accutane and it is on my chin, it is from a...

Week 9 has basically been the same, still have two cysts, but they opened last night while washing my face. YUCK! and they would not stop bleeding :( They are pretty much just full of blood - it is really weird. but the rest of my face is looking better! Thats about it, sorry so boring! not a lot to say.

Week 8

cyst, garlic
Well week 8 was exciting.... NOT. four large round red cysts on my check! well needless to say they upped my dosage because 20mg wont do a thing for cystic acne. I was pretty sad this week because my whole cheek looked deformed and makeup seemed to make it worse. I will say that I was so frustrated that I did some research and found online that a bunch...

So I guess I had missed my window to do the online iPledge test and from when I got my prescription or something so I had to go back to the derm and "start over" so I went to the derm to get another pregnancy test and a new prescription (which they said I was going to stay on 20mg) but decided to up me to 60mg because of my cysts. The nurse said I...

Week 7

Well week seven my cyst came back for a third time along with 3 others right next to it. :( I got them all shot with cortisone friday so they have gone down but are leaving pretty deep scars. I am really hoping that is the last of the cysts, they are so painful and multiples in one small area is the worse ever!! I did put fresh lemon juice on them...

scars, cyst, cortisone
This week my gross, large cyst came back so I got it shot with cortisone again (it took 3 shots!) and currently it is just a little bump :) (today is my 1st anniversary with my husband so happy anniversary to me!)

I have had success with cortisone injections prior to this so I dont know what the deal is! Otherwise I have been happy with how things are...

Week 4

Week 4 Week 4 wasn't much different except I noticed another cyst forming on my cheek and I started developing dry skin patches on the top of my hands and fingers. Normally the dryness on my hands wouldn't bother me but part of my job is hand modeling so I really need it to go away fast! I bought Venicream from Walgreens today because I have read...
