So I haven't updated forever, sorry about that. I've just gotten really busy with summer vacations and work and everything. Also, everything has been going amazingly, so there hasn't been a ton to write about. I suppose I'm past the point of even having to worry about getting an initial break out, in fact, I haven't had a real "break out" since the day I started accutane. A pimple here and there, sure, but nothing too distressing. At the moment I have one dried up pimple on my forehead and that is it!
Noteworthy things to add:
- I was upped from 20mg last month to 30mg this month.
- There was an issue with the timeframe of when I got my bloodwork/ pregnancy test and my pharmacy's delivery schedule (they don't deliver on weekends and don't carry Absorica in stock), so I had to switch to Claravis just for this month. Haven't noticed anything different about it, although it is a bit inconvenient having to take it with a meal.
-I was away for 12 days and only washed my face 3 times... no break outs. Every morning I woke up expecting one, but nothing.
-Lips are perfectly fine as long as I have something on them. (I'm on a Nivea and Aquaphor streak right now.)
-I get strange rough dry patches on the cartilage of my ear. Random.
-USE Mario Badescu Cleansing Milk with Carnation & Rice Oil, Chamomile Cleansing Lotion (toner) and Soothing and Healing Mask
Hope everyone's doing as well as I am, good luck!
