Month 1

Duration - Sept. 12, 2012 - Oct. 11, 2012

Skin - clear skin, kinda red, lots of blackheads

Cholesterol - 120 LDL

Dosage - 30mg

Just like that a month has gone by super quick! Wow I never knew what a normal pimple looks like until now. I thought that crap on my face was normal. Apparently not. Normal pimples are quick forming, comes to a head and go away. What I had usually last for a week if I'm lucky. Some of them like to stay on my face for a month. I had an initial breakout on Day 8 and it lasted until Day 17. People probably thought I had smallpox. After that I have had clear skin. I have strange pimples randomly around my body (arm, belly, butt). Now I have blackheads in every pore on my nose and around my nose.

Here are some highlights:

Day 5 - Dry lips

Day 8 - Smallpox..jk initial breakout

Day 10 - Swollen lips from so much acne hard to eat

Day 11 - So much physical pain from acne can't even sleep

Day 12 - Really dry lips, peeling

Day 14 - About 90% breakout become scabs, they fall off everywhere, on my bed, in the bathroom, on my shirt, etc

Day 17 - The last scab fell off...or did i pick it off?

Day 21 - Ran out of things to post/update on acne.org because nothing happened

Day 30 - Blackheads in every pore on my nose and around my nose.

Haha did you flirt with him or something because giving out medicine is illegal. Yeah definately use the RxRelief program. My 60mg dosage is $900 without insurance, yikes! I just searched for "Accutane" on the website, they only cover 50%, but that's still good!

What you mean mild from you view of point?

There's a huge difference bettween mild and severe

I dont' know. I am probably used to the way I look. On that day I only had a handful of pimples and maybe one or two big ones. I thought it was a pretty good day.

I wonder why they called yours nodular cystic if you dont agree? I knew something had gone wrong with my face when I went to go see the Derm, my nodules are like DEEP, where you don't even see them unless I stretch my skin and they take forever to come up and get very red/purple. They're crazy scary and I dont know what to expect Tane is going to do to them. They told me Accutane was my only hope for this crazyness - I even have a cluster of cysts on my cheek that has formed into a monster! I asked her if it was conglobata and she said "well this one is but I've treated boys who look like those scary pictures on the internet, picture your cheek all over their bodies". All I could think was, is that whats going to happen? Ga my hormones are so f'd up.
