So Far...

Entry posted

So... I'm 26 (27 next month) and I have suffered with acne rosacea on and off for the last 10 years.[/font][/color][color=rgb(40,40,40)][font='Open Sans']

After my last breakout which left my confidence in shatters I decided that enough was enough and to seek help from a dermatologist instead of my local GP. After an 11 week wait to see the dermatologist, my acne had cleared up due to the course of antibiotics I had taken and I walked into the consulting room and was met with what can only be described as confusion as my skin did not show any sign of the terrible outbreaks I had experienced, luckily I had photos to show him exactly what I meant. My Doctor prescribed roaccutane and I am now on the road to clear skin, hopefully [img][/img][/font][/color][color=rgb(40,40,40)][font='Open Sans']

Day 1:[/font][/color][color=rgb(40,40,40)][font='Open Sans']
Took my first 2 pills after my evening meal, didn't feel any different until I got into bed that evening and could not stop scratching. My back, my arms, my face, my hair, everything felt so itchy.[/font][/color][color=rgb(40,40,40)][font='Open Sans']

Day 2:[/font][/color][color=rgb(40,40,40)][font='Open Sans']
Woke up feeling on top of the world and had a great morning until it reached 3pm and I was shattered, I couldn't keep my eyes open, which is unlike me, unless I have had a big night out, but as you know, I was in bed scratching the night before!![/font][/color][color=rgb(40,40,40)][font='Open Sans']
After I woke up I felt OK, headed out with some friends and completely forgot to put any sunscreen on so I came home with slightly burnt cheeks which is unusual for me as I have olive skin and I can use SPF 8 and not burn. Lesson learned...[/font][/color][color=rgb(40,40,40)][font='Open Sans']
In bed by 10pm and asleep almost immediately as I felt exhausted.[/font][/color][color=rgb(40,40,40)][font='Open Sans']

Day 3:[/font][/color][color=rgb(40,40,40)][font='Open Sans']
Woke up feeling like the world had ended and could not stop crying.[/font][/color][color=rgb(40,40,40)][font='Open Sans']
Kept myself busy all day with shopping ans cooking but felt like I had an extremely short fuse for the entire day.[/font][/color][color=rgb(40,40,40)][font='Open Sans']
Again, felt shattered but am slowly getting used to this now although I did not expect to feel any side effects this early.[/font][/color][color=rgb(40,40,40)][font='Open Sans']
pustules have begun to appear along my jawline, quite painful and I can feel my lips getting more and more dry as the hours go by.[/font][/color][color=rgb(40,40,40)][font='Open Sans']
 [/font][/color][color=rgb(40,40,40)][font='Open Sans']
Day 4:[/font][/color][color=rgb(40,40,40)][font='Open Sans']
I was supposed to go to the gym at 6:30am but had no energy and getting up for work at 7:30 was a struggle.[/font][/color][color=rgb(40,40,40)][font='Open Sans']
Have sat a my desk in a bit of a haze all day and cannot wait to get home. Pustules that appeared yesterday are sore and I want top squeeze them but cannot face the pain or any more scars. Itchiness has returned but only my head/hair.[/font][/color][color=rgb(40,40,40)][font='Open Sans']
 [/font][/color][color=rgb(40,40,40)][font='Open Sans']
Fingers crossed this is as bad as it gets![/font][/color][color=rgb(40,40,40)][font='Open Sans']
