Week 4

Posted by CGryffindor, 15 July 2013 · 483 views

Hey all, just starting week 4! Had my Derm appointment this morning, and thankfully all my bloodwork came back ok. She kept me on the same dose of 20 mg twice a day for now, and if everything comes back ok again, we can talk about increasing the dosage. It's fine with me because my skin is doing really well right now. I've noticed something wonderful over...

Note To Self: Hands Off

Ok, so I seriously need to learn to leave my face the heck alone. I have the worst habit of squeezing things on my face that aren't even that noticeable and making them ten times worse. Normally, this is annoying, but not a huge deal or anything. But now that I'm on Claravis, everytime I touch my face, I cause a scrape. My skin is so fragile. And also, my...

I've tried a lot of products over the years, and I mean A LOT of products, and I've weeded through the ones that don't work for me.

Well, just finishing up week 2 now. My skin is becoming drier and drier. It itches all the time, despite the lotion.

My skin is still pretty clear, and when I do get pimples, which are still a daily occurrence, they heal extremely quickly. Usually they dry up by the next d...

Week 1

So I guess this will be my first entry chronicling my experience with Isotretinoin, or more specifically Claravis. Some background info to start off with, I've had acne since I was about 13 years old.  It started off quite severe, and I used to not be able find a clear spot on my whole face. I was familiar with the horrors of acne already because my older...
