Today I have officially started my 3rd month of Accutane! I'm pretty excited about it since I've heard that the third month is when you see a bigger improvement. I went to the dermatologist 2 days ago and she had said that my prior blood work showed an increase in something but that this time around it was perfect. I'm thinking it might have been better this time because I hadn't been consistent with taking the medicine for one week. So I would definitely recommend checking in with your dermatologist at each visit and make sure the blood work came in with good results since it seems they don't always tell you everything.
The back pain is not as bad as it was a few weeks ago. I have noticed from the beginning that when I blow my nose blood or rather dried blood will emerge. I talked to my dermatologist and she said that it was perfectly normal and that it was a side effect. As long as it's not full on nose bleeds it's nothing to worry about. I have been taking monthly photos of my skin and after comparing them I can definitely say my pores have minimized. The depth of the scarring is still very obvious in the photos (not so much when I look in the mirror) and I realize Accutane probably won't be able to remove it but I'm hoping it'll not look as bad as it does now.
Can't wait to see what the end of month 3 will show!
