Another week on Accutane. I've had a lot of dryness on my hands that doesn't seem to want to go away easy. I have a prescription cream from my dermatologist that I use at morning and night and when I remember, I moisturize with CeraVe Moisturizing Cream. I feel like my biggest problems right now are around my mouth. I've had a cold sore, some bu...

Ughhhh. Late again. I’ve been feeling very fatigued and between that, being busy and just having general craziness in life, this blog hasn’t been a huge priority.The biggest grief I’ve had this week has been the stupid cold sore I got last week and tried vehemently to get it to go away. I put apple cider vinegar on it almost every hour,...

For anyone who might follow this blog, sorry that I’m a day late on this update. Life has been more than crazy lately. I’ve had a lot of stress in my family with my father who suffers from Rheumatoid Arthritis and also, lately, a very good friend of mine was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia – Acute Monocytic Leukemia. It’s bee...

I’ve officially broken into month three!I had my dermatologist appointment earlier this week and according to him, I am through the worst of my acne and from this point on, my skin should start to smooth out. The pictures really aren’t that great this week, but I think I am seeing some improvement on my face. I’ve have some breakouts on...

Hello people out there!    Not really that much to update this week. I get my blood work done tomorrow morning and I am not looking forward to it, but hopefully it will go better this time than last month.    The eczema that I had about a week and a half ago is so much better now and the top of my arms feel like butter. Seriously....

The skin on my arms freaked out like crazy this past week. I started out getting these small, red bumps on my hands and then it eventually went up my arms. I assume it was eczema from the Accutane. I called my doctor’s office and they prescribed me a cream and recommended that I get CeraVe and use it on my on hands and arms. I think it has really he...

I feel like my body has been through a lot lately! Not related to the Accutane, but I went hiking a couple of weeks ago and scraped my knees and ankles, I spent some time outside and ended up with a bad tick bite, got my eyebrows waxed and ended up with a burn that made my eye pretty swollen for about a day AND THEN I got a really bad rug burn on my knee...

My lips are dry as ever and are definitely peeling. The left corner of my mouth is cracking and it doesn’t seem to matter how much Vaseline I put on it, it still cracks and bleeds.     Beyond the dry lips, I’ve had more dry skin, but nothing big or major other than that.     When I visited my dermatologist last week, he to...

This week has been so weird between all kinds of news and terrible things happening in the world and then having to deal with the annoying process of trying to get a new Accutane prescription.    I saw my dermatologist this week and thankfully all of my blood work was great and I was good to go to get another prescription. The first time I saw m...

Okay, guys, here’s my week 5 update:   Symptoms – Just more dry lips. The corners of my lips have started to really dry out and that has been pretty annoying.  I have had a lot of lower back pain, but I’m not sure if that’s related to the Accutane or not. I go to my dermatologist tomorrow, so I’ll talk to him about that....
