Accutane Day 33

accutane, bumps, hair, joint pain and 6 more...
I went to the gym a few days ago and my muscles are still hurting. This is very unusual for me and I've noticed a lot more aches and pains. Not to mention my back and neck hurt after sitting for a while. I figure this must be associated with the accutane as I've read similar stories in the past. 
The worst was this morning when I tried to blow...

Accutane Day 32

skin coloured bumps, bumps and 8 more...
Seem to be getting more and more of tiny skin coloured bumps, many of them have stuff inside when squeezed. I'm wondering if this could be a reaction to something seeing as they come and go?
I have a very big problem with picking. Always seems like things heal faster that way but my face is a red mess and I'm really worried about scarring. My foreh...

accutane, red marks, scars and 7 more...
Wow, seems that things never get better. Skin looks worse than EVER! 
I know that you are supposed to clear up by 2 months but I thought that the initial bad breakout would be over before then... 
My skin is the worst it has ever looked and every time somewhere clears up it is suddenly awful again, seems to get worse every morning...

accutane, side effect, bowel and 7 more...
So ive noticed some more lip dryness but nothing crazy. All the pimples I get now are painful under the skin ones. They seem to take forever to go away! I also noticed a bunch of new clogged pores/skin coloured bumps popping up on my cheeks - could this be from all the moisturizing?

The worst part of this all is the bowel movements. I'm not sure how to...

Accutane Day Eight

Today I started to feel some dryness on my lips. My initial breakout is still lingering with a lot of painful, big red pimples and many of them are peeling. eek.
I've been religiously using aquaphor on my lips and moisturizer whenever possible. Debating starting a vitamin regime because I'm a pretty big drinker and this is probably hell on the live...

accutane, pain, raw honey and 4 more...
Things are going alright. My initial bad breakout seems to be healing pretty well(i do keep raw honey on my face whenever i can so I'm sure thats helping) and i have very minor dry skin.

Unfortunately it's the internal issues that are getting to me. I've been suffering from abdominal pain and other things i won't describe.. Theres also been some ble...

accutane breakout
Wow. People weren't joking when they said it would be hard at first. My face is a mess and I have more pimples then I've had in my entire life. Friends have even commented on it. This is very very hard.
Otherwise everythings good, no side effects.

Today I took my very first pill! As of now I still have plenty of small bumps on my skin (similar to a bunch of clogged pores) and some small groups of pimples.
Can't wait to see how this goes, will update as things come!

vinegar, baking soda, bumps and 5 more...
I posted this somewhere else too but figured I should add this to my pre-accutane updates. The bumps on my face have been bugging me SO much!
So I read that vinegar can be helpful with folliculitis and other noninflamed acne and I also saw a lot of posts about baking soda and apple cider vinegar on your face.  
Decided to give it a go. Aft...

pre accutane, skin bumps, acne and 2 more...
So I've been taking progress pictures which I intend to upload at the end of my round of accutane if all goes well. I don't have the confidence to post pictures of my skin at the moment, not sure how others do it before they see dramatic improvement! Lately I've been focusing on getting rid of the strange bumps on my skin while I wait for the accutan...
