Accutane: One Day at a Time


Posted by bcurry0731, 28 October 2014 · 280 views

Finished! Well I went to the dermatologist today and he told me no more accutane! I am excited, but a little nervous that he isn't having me do a full six months (I just finished month 5).  Below is my skin today (its honestly like a babys bottom!) and it has been completley acne free for a little over a month. My lips are still chapped and the doctor said it...

Month 4

Posted by bcurry0731, 08 September 2014 · 254 views

Well I just finished Month 4 and I could not be happier. I have zero pimples and my skin is like a baby's bottom. My lips are still really chapped and my hair dry, but no dry skin. I have been on 40mg as of month 2. I am really worried that my acne will come back. I have asked my dermatologist to up my dosage, but for some reason she refuses. My sister w...

Day 45

I can certainly feel a difference in my skin. My skin is much smoother and my pores are now tiny.  Almost all blackheads gone.  I am still getting acne on my chin, but nothing that isn't able to be covered with a little makeup.  Any pimple I do get are just pimples, no cysts anymore.  I don't know if you are able to tell from the photo...

Day 30

Day 30 Sorry I haven't posted in a while! I don't know if I said this before but my doctor upped my dosage to 40mg. I was hoping for more but because of my itchy scalp she didn't want to go higher. She said if my scalp doesn't get any worse she will up it again next month. I will start the 40mg pills tomorrow. My lips are still chapped and red, but not super cra...

Day 22

I no longer have anxiety going out in public. However, I am stressing over my job.... or should I say job search. I am a recent grad and need to find a job that can pay my bills. I absolutely LOVE my job and enjoy going to work everyday, but it is a  non-profit which means minimum wage for employees.  I just got an email from a potential employe...

Day 17

Posted by bcurry0731, 28 May 2014 · 305 views

Continually improving.  Each day I wake up I have less acne. Even though my skin is still far from perfect, I am more confident just knowing I am just several months away from that perfection.  My lips are still tight and my scalp is still itchy. I started globing on the Waxelene which helps me resist the urge to pick at my lips.
Tonight my be...

Day 16

Posted by bcurry0731, 27 May 2014 · 326 views

** Everything is really drying out. My pimples are all becoming super dry and eventually flaking off. My scalp is not as itchy as it was. I use to wash my hair everyday, but my hair is super dry so I can go a couple days. I know this sounds gross, but it helps with the itchy scalp. My lips are all I can think about. They don't look chapped at all, but boy...

Day 13

Wow. The improvement from 4 days ago. It might not look it from these photos because my face is still red, but no new pimples today! I am thinking that maybe it has started to improve because my period ended and I began my new cycle of birth control. I guess I wont find out until next month, but for now I am content.
I feel like this is too good to...

Day 12

Today is day 12 and I am feeling much better than I have been. I woke up this morning with only one white head! Weeee! Most "normal" people would not be thrilled by this, but when you have been waking up each morning with about 8 white heads surrounding your mouth, one is something to celebrate.

My lips are still super dry. No cracking or bleeding, just...

Day 11

Im in a rush to take Bo to the vet so I will have to make it quick.

Today was my first full day of work since my acne has gone crazy! It was ok. I told everyone in my class about accutane. I work in a school for children with motor disabilities called CECO and today was the last day (aka class pictures). I explained why I didn't want to be the photo and...
