Accutane Week 9

Posted by bluebelleyes, 09 April 2014 · 221 views

Helloooo :) Second year of university almost done! My exams start tomorrow and finish on the 19th so I'm STRESSED.
This is showing up on my face. I've been breaking out a little on the sides of my chin. But that also could be to the fact that I'm on a new birth control now. 
My blood work says that my triglycerides and cholesterol are a little...

Accutane Week 6

Posted by bluebelleyes, 13 March 2014 · 386 views

This week I've been using Dan's BP at nighttime, with a 10% glycolic acid toner on top of my active pimples and worst areas of hyperpigmentation. This stings, and irritates the skin, but works like magic. During the day I use either a witchhazel toner, or gentle bp treatment (not Dan's) or gentle salicylic acid treatment...basically whatever I...

Accutane Week 5

Posted by bluebelleyes, 07 March 2014 · 322 views

My skin is still breaking out with these PAINFUL pimples. Although, my skin has mostly cleared, I keep getting a few of these deep painful lumps every couple days. They surface quickly, but after extracting they heal very, very slowly. I'm barely getting tiny blemishes any more, just these big deep ones (but there are only a few at a time). I s...

Rash ! (Mid Week 4 Update)

Posted by bluebelleyes, 01 March 2014 · 193 views

 Yesterday I woke up to a full-blown red polkadot party going from my fingers to my shoulders. It's not swollen or anything, and only mildly itchy still. I get rashes on my hands from touching certain metals sometimes, but this is different. It's all over.Today it's even worse because some parts are drying up and peeling off. My hands are the worst,...

Accutane Week 4

Posted by bluebelleyes, 27 February 2014 · 257 views

This week my skin went through a dramatic and rapid clearing phase. The clogged pores have been reduced to maybe 30 or so, and the amount of acne has dropped to ten. TEN. I only have ten pimples on my face. 
.....my skin hasn't looked this good in so long, I nearly cried happy tears telling the Derm today how things were going. My back, however, is s...

Hey guys,
Quick update, here are the symptoms I've experience so far and a skin update.

-back pain and some joint pain in my wrists&ankles
-mild nose bleeds (every day)

Accutane Week 2.5

Posted by bluebelleyes, 16 February 2014 · 187 views

Hey! I just had to throw in a quick mid-week update because something unusual is happening...
I've had hyperhydrosis for many years (overactive sweat glands, activated by stress for me) ...normally I am sweating 24/7 from my underarms and feet. I use drysol (SUPER strength antiperspirant) to control it. I noticed in the last few days that I've been sweati...

Accutane Week 2

Posted by bluebelleyes, 13 February 2014 · 406 views

Something happened today that hasn't happened to me in over eight years. EIGHT YEARS.
I went to my chemistry lab, which is approximately 3 hours long. When I got home, and looked in the mirror, my jaw dropped and I stood in awe looking at my face. 
It's dry. Like normal people skin. I still have giant pimples, I still have uneven textur...
