Accutane Month 2

403 views

Today has been exactly 4 weeks since starting the med. my skin is dry, lips are dry and the tiny bumps on my forehead appear to be getting better. Besides that, I am still breaking out on my cheeks which seem to clear somewhat quickly but is just followed by another big pimple. Ughhh I hope this stops soon. Im just so ready to be clear! I'm going to stay positive and believe this will work! Anyways yay for one whole month on the med! Have a great day everyone!!

It will be 5 weeks on Monday and I am still breaking out! I'm trying so desperately to stay positive, but my cheeks are def worse than when I first started the accutane. My forehead and chin however have become smooth and clear for the most part. I just don't understand what is going on with my cheeks. I just keep getting cyst after cyst and these suckers hurt. It is EXTREMELY exhausting!! I can't even stand looking in the mirror. I feel so defeated every time I look at my skin. I know it is supposed to get better, I am just praying it will soon. I just want to be able to post a happy progress post!! Praying for all the taners out there!

Today makes 5 weeks on accutane.

Day 35: still having painful breakouts but I do believe that all those tiny clogged pores all over my face has gotten better. It's like the overall texture of my face is a bit smoother, I think anyways. It so hard for me to tell. I am so over having acne! I can not wait to be crystal clear. I hope it's starting to turn a corner bc I really can't handle much more of this. At this point I don't have any side effects except chapped lips which is easily controlled for me. Praying this works soon!!

Day 37: So I am def seeing a difference in the texture of my skin. It is finally smoothing out and not so bumpy. I wish I could figure out how to post a progress pic!!! Omg it's so aggravating. It won't let me post. Anyway I am still getting some big under the skin pimples which hurt!! But I really think I'm starting to turn the corner. I can only pray and hope!! Have a great day!!

Week 6: just great! I woke up with like three new big pimples. I'm so over this! It's like the texture of my skin as a whole has improved but these huge pimples keep popping up randomly! Skin looks bad with makeup and without! I need this to clear soon! I am so exhausted and I can't stand the roller coaster of this. One day good the next bad! Ughhhh whatever! What a lovely way to start my work week!

Ok I'm literally about to go insane!! As you can see I'm up at 0130 thinking about my acne. I did a really mild sal acid peel yesterday which seems to have slightly helped but my skin still looks rough. Reds spot everywhere and tiny clogged pores all over my lower cheeks. At least the forehead tiny bumps are gone. I'm laying here having a panic attack bc I've been told that my acne is hormonal due to it being lower face acne and I keep reading how accutane doesn't work as well on this type of acne. Think it about time to stop reading the web, Idk I guess I need to have total faith in my derm. She is just totally convinced all this will be completely clear with accutane. My God I surely pray it will! I keep trying to pray and keep the faith but it is so hard. I know people are reading this blog so if anyone has had success with strictly lower face acne bring cured by accutane please share your experience. There is a girl over here struggling to stay sane lol

youll get through it!! its all apart of the process... it pushes all the current oil out your pours becuae your pours shrink..once you get thru it youll thank yourself..its hard breaking out but i swear if your on accutane you will clear up..also no need for any crazy facial stuff either...our acne is interior..you could even wash your face once a day with water and it wont matter when your on tane..i only wash my face once a day on tane i found it was less irritating

Thanks so much for your comforting words! I know I just need to chill and I'm sure everything will clear up. I just get so nervous bc my derm keeps saying my acne is hormonal but everything I keep reading says its not as effective against hormonal acne. I guess it truly depends on people's dose and length of therapy. I mean I think it's stupid to call some acne hormonal. I believe all acne has a hormonal component. Well anywho ill keep praying for both of us!! Have a great day!! :)

Thanks! I know its so easy to get inside your own head when you have acne and just believe it wont get better..but even hormonal acne should get taken care of with accutane. i no a girl personally who took it she was 21 shes 31 now and shes still clear and healthy and she had really bad hormonal acne..took her 6 months for it start clearing...it changes the size of your pours and the sticky oil becomes way less sticky causing less clogs so it will at least help alot...any week you could stop breaking out! Your experiencing the hardest part of accutane right now, you could be on week 1 but your on week 8/9! YOU WILL GET CLEAR!! keep updating, also you should create a 'new entry for each time you blog, that way people will actually see your posts..cuz right now your just commenting on your one post from march title 'accutane month 2'..w.e floats your boat tho..if u need help figuring out how to add a new entry message me w.e
