my acne story (accutane)

Accutane Redness

Posted by claire297, 14 June 2013 · 603 views

Things were going so well http://www.acne.org/...t/sad.png  I've been on accutane now about a month and two weeks and things were looking good but now I'm breaking out again and this one is bad enough.... The bad thing is that because my skin is so sensitive on accutane, that the tiniest spot will make a big re...

Nearly 1 Month!

So I had my doctors appointment today, everything went fine and I've been bumped up to 50 mg, but I don't have enough pills for the amount of days between now and my next appointment (I had to extend my appointment because I'd be on holidays), so I'll have to keep going with just using one 20mg/day for another two weeks, and then I'll have enough to use 2...

Day 12

I'm starting to get clusters of spots around my mouth and on the sides of my face, they're not too bad (nothing I'm not used to) but this is just making me even more anxious to get rid of this acne! The ones on my right side were really big and painful, but they've died down a bit now. Side effects are my lips are getting a bit dry, and my back hurts some...

accutane, 20mg, day 7
So it's been a week since I started my accutane journey! And yesterday I did notice that the skin around all my spots was kind of peeling a bit, so when I put concealer on them you could see the peels. And also around my nose was dry. But it wasn't too bad...Also, I think my BareMinerals foundation is breaking me out a bit....I know I won't be using it an...

accutane, teenager
It's been one day from a week, and I feel no side effects really, not dry lips or anything so far...how long is it before I would probably start noticing some side effects? Not that I want them at all haha,...http://www.acne.org/messageboard//public/style_emoticons/default/huh.png   My skin hasn't changed, I wear makeup nearly every day because of sc...

Day 3!

Ok so finally after all these months, I got the courage to take my first accutane pill 2 days ago! And I suppose it's not surprising that I haven't really noticed much side effects...I think I'm a bit paranoid because every time I feel something in my body like a pain in my leg or arms I immediately assume it's the accutane and get all worried http:/...

confused, teenage, acne, severe
I really need to make a decision  http://www.acne.org/...ault/unsure.png    I know that I want to take accutane, and because I'm only going to be taking a 20mg dose, I hopefully won't have to worry as much about the serious side effects as I would with a higher dosage. But at the same time, my skin...

Ok, well you probably know why I'm here, I have acne. Terrible acne. And being a nearly 16 year old girl, I have enough to be dealing with without worrying about people judging me because of my skin...I have horrible red cysts literally covering my cheeks and chin, and all along the sides of my face ,and the marks from them don't go away... so I thought I...
