Day 109

LOL it's been so long, just got lazy and busy so didn't really give much thought about the website. My skin is so great! Praise the lords haha. Skin is smooth all on my face, maybe one tiny pimple on neck underneath the skin. Neck does however have a bigger one, but its drying up nicely. Shoulders 1 or 2 pimples, back is clean as a whistle and chest 1 pimple with deep hyper pigmentation. Thats all I am worrying about now, I still have hyper pigmentation to deal with, but hey it will go with time. I am having a very positive outlook, I've only really had dry lips, which is AMAZING. And now that spring has arrived, it's time to go job hunting and now I can feel very presentable! I'll post pictures today

Day 79

Skin is feeling a lot more smooth! I don't feel any bumps on my face, they all seem to be marks or underneath the skin. Vacation was great and yes, I did get pretty burnt... Oooops... Now I am starting to peel like a snake, but it really helped with my body acne, it has dried it up a lot. Neck is the most broken part on me, a few bumps. I am on 40mg now and once I get a refill on my order I am going to 60mg, woo hoooo!

Day 63

Month 2 over! Face is looking great, one small pimple on right part of forehead and just about it on my face, a few one neck chest and shoulders. It's so nice to shave and not worry about hitting a pimple! No real side effects, probably because I'm at 30mg... Going on vacation to either the Florida Keys or Caribbean so we will see how I react to the heat and sun! I know I am suppose to stay shaded so I will try my best ( this is going to be so hard) .

Day 57

Went to the doctors today... Still at 30mg for 2 weeks until I go home and see my real doctor that actually knows accutane. Its so stupid, I went for my appointment and the stupid doctor did not even know accutane was a pill, he thought it was a cream... He didn't check my blood test so there was no point in even doing one! I insisted that my doctor at home only put me on 30mg just so I could get a feel for the medication. Hopefully upgrading to a stronger dosage in 2 weeks. Skin on face is pretty good actually! All I am worried about are the marks left behind, which I will treat after I am done accutane. Also my pale winter skin does not help hide them so it should look much better with summer. Neck is doing alright, have a few pimples. Chest is kinda meeeh, few pimples and shoulders are pretty good!

Day 54

Holy days go fast when I look back at this... Skin is getting better! I was a bit scared as I had been breaking out, but my neck and face pimples are becoming less red. I really would love to upgrade my dosage as I am still at 30mg... grrrrr... It's complicated because I am in school at a different place from my hometown so my new doctor said " I don't really know Accutane so I am going to keep you on 30mg for another 2 weeks". Isn't it your job to know these things? Frustrating, going to see him this weekend to hopefully get a higher dosage. That is all thats new!

Day 47

Sorry it's been so long! So busy lately. Skin has broken out a bit since I last posted, one nice big red one on my right cheek and a couple on my right neck and one on my right chin, left side seems to be pretty good. Nothing to new for side effects, skin dry around upper lip and lips dry. Eyes aren't to bad, they were really bad a few days ago though!

Day 41

Skin is looking great, I am noticing the pimples that come on my face are very small, good sign! Dry lips and hands, thats about it. I'll post pictures tomorrow!

Day 39

Woke up today and really felt good about my face, it's starting to look clearer then ever, neck is getting there to. Body is kinda bad but it looks like its at work drying up to. Felt really dry in the morning, and as I type this I am having a bit of dry eyes. Feeling positive though!

Day 37

Today was good, even though I'm sick! Face and neck seem to be clearing up! Shoulders and chest aren't the best they have ever been but hopefully they will clear up in time! I've been in a lot of pain today because of my sore stinging nose from my cold and my stinging dry lips, ouch!

Day 35

Not much new today except I think my neck is slowly looking less aggressive and red. Side effects were pretty minimal today. That's all!

Day 34

Hmmm what happened today. Not to much actually, lips aren't that dry, eyes were dry for a bit but not bad. No new pimples. That is all :P I'll try to put up a picture tomorrow. Also feeling lot better today, more positive. When I want to cheer up all I do is watch the Shaytards on youtube!

Day 33

So today wasn't the best day. Got my bloodwork done today and I'm hoping I can get the pills before I run out. I just felt very blah today. I have to big red pimples that are on my forehead. My eyes have been really dry all day. Its beginning to bug me a lot. It looks like I am constantly high because my eyes seem red and I squint my eyes a bit. Not to mention I went to the gym yesterday so I am sore from that. I am just afraid of having dry eyes for the rest of my life, I REALLY hope its done with after accutane. Lips and upper mouth have been super dry and sore today. Also I noticed yesterday I have 2 tiny red patches on the inside of my wrist, look like a small rash. Not effecting me at all thankfully. Neck hasn't really done much : / so its still pretty bad. If anyone can recommend a good lip lotion and eyedrops that would be great thanks!

Day 31

Dry eyes dry eyes dry eyes. It looks like I am constantly high as my eyes are always red. It is irritating but I am still using my eye drops. Other then that I have a new whitened on my forehead. My skin hasn't been that dry lately, just my neck area and lips.

Day 29

Today my neck has dried up all the pimples, still there just dry. I also was affected with dry eyes today and dry lips a lot earlier in the day than it usually is. One of my friends complimented me on my face today though, so that was a big boost!

Day 28

Holy crap 8 days went fast. Sorry guys its been so crazy here because od the first week of college. Whats new whats new... Face isn't really any different, neck is kinda bad but not to horrible. No real side effects, just dry around the lips and moustache area. A few new small pimples came up on my shoulders but seem to be getting smaller. Thats about it guys!

Day 20

Sorry guys missed a day. My whiteheads have almost disappeared so i'm really happy about that. Lips kinda hurt yesterday because of how dry they were. Also right above my upper lip was red and kinda wwas stinging, especially after putting lip chap on. Neck cysts have also really diminished and aren't very red anymore. Today so far I'm feeling fine, not to dry and face is the same as yesterday.

Day 18

Day 17! Face has already dried up a new whitehead I got yesterday. Lips have been very dry today, drinking lots of water! Moved back to college residence so I'll see if that has any effect with my acne. Also I haven't really talked about my body acne at all! My chest has 2 or 3 pimples and then a bunch of red/purple marks that can hopefully leave soon. Shoulders has a few bigger pimples but they are dry and "crispy" I guess you could say tongue.png Back has red marks on it, or pimples not sure, nothing big tough. Thats all for today!

Day 17

Got a new whitehead on the right side of chin, no biggy though, pretty small. Shaved and got really dry after assuming it was the hot water on the open pores. Cetaphil is working great, I just find it very thick and it leaves extra white lotion on my face. I do it goes away in a few minutes as my skin absorbed it. Haven't had dry eyes in a while. Thats all thats really new!

Day 16

I'm a bit late on it sorry. Nothing really new today, no mood changes, just dryness. One pimple around the opening of my mouth is so annoying. Always popping when I open my mouth for food. It then starts to bleed. Hopefully it can leave SOON!

Day 15

Sorry missed a day, to busy with New Years eve. I actually drank a lot last night and no hangover in the morning. Although I did drink a lot of water to. I started warming a whitehead on the middle of my lip yesterday, so weird. It popped overnight and stained my lips with blood when I woke up. Lips have a lot of dry dead skin on them. I have been pretty flaky today and acne is getting better, especially neck. Happy New Year everybody!

Day 14

Nothing really special today, nothing cleared, dry but not to bad. I can't wait for this one BIG cyst to leave on my neck.. Tomorrow is new years eve, I am going to drink but I will drink in moderation. I don't want to stress out my body any more than it already is.

Day 13

Wow is my skin ever dry. All my skin under my cheekbones is so flaky its like its a new layer of skin. It makes me look very pale! Many pimples have turned very dry and it is SOOOO hard not to pick them off. Went to the movies last night and my eyes were beginning to get dry so it was really hard to pay attention for half the movie until they finally stopped. Last two days I have been forgetting to take my pill at dinner. Luckily I remember before the night is over. I am going to put them somewhere more visible. Trying to drink a lot of water! Also yesterday the edge of my right lip hurt trying to open up my mouth, it seems I had a pipe there and it was stretching every time I opened my mouth. I'm in a pretty positive state so thats good!
