I’ve officially broken into month three!
I had my dermatologist appointment earlier this week and according to him, I am through the worst of my acne and from this point on, my skin should start to smooth out. The pictures really aren’t that great this week, but I think I am seeing some improvement on my face. I’ve have some breakouts on my chest, though. The improvement on my back is slow, but the dermatologist said that the back would be the last thing to improve.
We talked about crazy dryness and red bumps I had on my arms from two weeks ago and my dermatologist just said that they were a side effect from the medicine. Good to know it wasn’t an allergic reaction or anything that would make me have to stop taking Accutane. I’ve really felt fine while taking it (I’m on 60 mg a day) and I honestly feel like some people’s experiences are just extreme cases it that get exploited. However, I do agree that Accutane should be approached with caution and it is up to the patient to have that conversation with his/her doctor.
Okay, here are this week’s pictures:
