Accutane Week 5

ACNE CHECK

My skin is still breaking out with these PAINFUL pimples. Although, my skin has mostly cleared, I keep getting a few of these deep painful lumps every couple days. They surface quickly, but after extracting they heal very, very slowly. I'm barely getting tiny blemishes any more, just these big deep ones (but there are only a few at a time). I switched back to using Dan's BP treatment, and hopefully this will fully heal my face.

My back looks like it's still purging. More pimples crop up every day, and they're also large, deep, and very painful. But overall, my body acne has definitely been reduced.

I think this 'rash' on my arms (see previous post) is just eczema from the extra dryness, and it looks like it's here to stay. Slathering my arms in lotion overnight has been helping though.

SYMPTOMS CHECK

-Still nosebleeds all the time. Ugh.

-Dry skin with eczema on my shoulders/arms/backs of hands

-Tiny cuts make me bleed a lot and it can take up to an hour to clot/stop oozing. (sorry, graphic)

-I haven't been as achy, but I still have back pain when I lie down.

-Dry peeling lips. They peel vertically. I rub them gently with a facecloth in the morning to buff away the dry skin but I end up with red stripes coming down from my lips toward my chin from where the skin peeled away vertically. I also have cracks in the corners of my mouth which peel horizontally. Basically my mouth area is a bit of a mess, and I apply lanolin every 20 minutes or so (or every 5 minutes if I'm eating) to hydrate.

On my forehead and between my eyes the cysts are hard, never come to a head, and slowly shrink over several weeks/months. On the rest of my face they often come to a head in a day or two and then I extract them, and then they take a week or two to heal over and form a little hyperpigmentation mark.
