Month 1 Recap

I had my blood drawn today and am going to the doctor tomorrow to take my pregnancy test to get my next months prescription. The things I noticed the first month: during my first week, nothing really happened. Rolling into the second week I was extremely dry and if I did not have chap stick, I would probably go insane. My scalp started to flake and is still flaking today. My face was very red and had the feel of a sunburn between weeks 2 and 3. It was not until the end of week three into week four that I had my breakout. My skin is purging around my chin, cheeks, and nose. My acne is mostly on my chin and the left side of my face. It is moving to my forehead and I am still getting new acne daily. I have not had any emotional problems or losing interest in anything. The only thing I noticed was a week before my period, I was snapping at my hubby left and right...but this is somewhat normal.

On to month 2!

Well...I think I am finally in full on breakout mode. It started a couple of days ago where I really started to see the white stuff coming out of my pores and the pimples are all over now....started on chin, left side of face and just about an hour ago, I noticed my forehead is starting to break out. I don't know if it is just me, but it comes on with a vengeance. I went from a few pimples to a lot of pimples within a matter of half a day. Hopefully they will leave as fast as they came. rolleyes.gif I just keep telling myself end results....end results....end results.

Day 20

I feel like things may finally be working. I wanted to see some acne pop up so I am glad my face has a few new pimples. The main thing is still dryness and everybody asks if I was out in the sun because my face and ears are very red. I will post pictures in the next few days but I feel like my face is looking the same.

Day 10

Whoa....I am dry. I woke up this morning and my whole chin pretty much peeled off. I have these intense itches that are insane and last for minutes at a time. I was ready to itch my scalp and forehead off yesterday. I have been putting stuff on my lips non stop and am to the point I may have to do the same on my face. My make-up is not looking too pretty. Also, my nose feels like it is constantly on the verge of bleeding. Just really dry with the same acne on my face and a few new ones in places I have never got them before....back of arms and shoulder blades. So far, so good!!! Just a dryness I have not experienced before. I am still saying this is worth it!!!!rolleyes.gif

Day 5

I am on day five and all I have noticed is dry lips, my eyes were dried out one day and one new pimple on my left cheek. All of my other cysts are still here, nothing has really healed. I am sure it is just too early for that. Does anybody know when I should be expecting the "big break out"?

Got My Prescription

I uploaded pictures of the current condition of my face as of today. I got my prescription and am just waiting for the doctor to update the website so I can go online and fill out the questions and get the prescription filled. Ready to do this!!! No better birthday present than starting Accutane nod.gif I have been prescribed 30mg to start.

I have been struggling with cystic and nodule acne for many years now and have tried everything. I asked for Accutane about a year back, but no go. I was a little worried when I went to the Dermatologist and they said I would be placed on Accutane. Now that it is a go, all of the side effects and thought of the initial breakout seems a little scary. I still have to wait the 30 days to go back and take another pregnancy test, but I didn't get much information on what happens next. If there is anybody that is willing to give me a heads up on what to expect next, what the process is, and what I should buy in bulks to prepare, that would be great!!

I will start my journey on my birthday next month, happy birthday to me....I think!!! I will post my initial pictures at that time, yikes!
