I'm back! Okay, so there is lots to update on.
First of all, my absence. In my last blog post, I said that I wasn't sure if the "red spots" would go away, so over the last however long it has been, I have not taken any pictures of my acne and tried to think of it a whole deal. I thought that this would give me a good chance to compare the photos. On top o...

Finally on time for once, woo! 
Last weekend I went camping and my goal was to not get sun burnt... Talk about a broken promise. All weekend I wore at hat, layers and layers of sunscreen, zinc and sunglasses, yet I still managed to get out of it looking like a lobster breeding ground. Because I got so burnt, my face is now peeling like theres no tomo...

So, I've decided that I'm going to be featuring two weeks in one blog from now on. I really feel like the treatments drastic climax has reached its end, so now it's just boring.
 
3 months on Roaccutane! Woo hoo, halfway there! Nothing has changed really. My body acne is almost gone, I've had the odd occasional breakout, otherwise that's all fading p...

I forgot to post last week! I've been super busy, and it didn't cross my mind until just then.
Any who, I FINALLY GOT THE EXTRA 10mg. It was a long and traumatic journey, but we got there in the end. So now I am currently taking 70mg per day, the set amount my derm had planned for me.
 
It's all going pretty well. I have the occasional breakout, but...

I almost forgot to post this, but then I remembered, TWO MONTHS! YAY!!!
 
So, two months on Roaccutane. Hopefully it's going to be uphill from here on out. You'd be surprised to know that I finally got my script sent out, but it's the WRONG DAMN SCRIPT. So it will probably be another 6-10 years before the correct one will arrive. So, I'm still on 60m...

Seven weeks. 2 MONTH IS SO CLOSE, I CAN TASTE IT. 
 
So last week I posted that I was meant to be bumped up 10mg but my script had never arrived. SURPRISE, my dermatologists a douche. After not receiving the script which I was meant to start 2 weeks before that, we called the office ladies 2 times and they said they couldn't read his handwriting...

Okay, okay. So currently on 60mg a day. I was meant to be bumped up 10mg but my derms handwriting is so illegible that the script got lost in the mail. What is with health specialist and their crappy handwriting? Hello, I'm paying you $145 a visit, can you at least make it possible for a piece of paper to get to me?

Roaccutane/accutane Treatment: Week Five

ONE MONTH AND ONE DAY. Officially into the second month. 
 
So at the moment, I'm still on 60mg a day, and sometime this week I'll be getting the script to go up to another 10mg. 
Not much has changed, except I'M FREAKING BREAKING OUT AGAIN. Ugh!! Every day I wake up with a massive pimple on my cheek, and it's always the same bloody cheek a...


Roaccutane/accutane Treatment: Week Four

Yay, 1 month! Finally, it's over. 
So, I know I'm a few days late, but I haven't been home for a few days.
 
Last Wednesday I went to the derm, and he bumped me up 20mg, so now I'm on 60mg a day. In two weeks I'm going to move up another 10mg, so I'll be taking 70mg, which will be the highest amount I'll take during the treatment. Not much has c...

Roaccutane: the medication that turns you into a pepperoni pizza.  
So three weeks down since I've started Oratane (Roaccutane), and it's been a bit of a roller-coaster so far. I've been on 40mg, in case anyone was wondering. Yeah, so last week I went through the initial breakout, and 7 days later, I'm still recovering. My skin definitely isn't as so...
