Day 16

Hey what's up? Here I'm with quick update before going to sleep!

I've got a question about the hair/hairloss, I don't get really any,maybe 1-3 when I run my hand through the hair which is normal and around 10 ni the shower really but what is making me wondering is that since 2 days ago when I thought that I'm losing hair my hair's texture become different, it is like silky and smoothy and not so thick now.

Has anyone have this happened? Could it be that it becomes less oily? because I've noticed my skin has become less oily aswell in the last 3-4 days. It feels like I don't have to wash it anymore, well that's a pro:) But my hair has lost quite a bit of volume, and thickness, doesn't really bother me though if I don't actually lose hair.

Here's the pics anyway as I promised with one extra with great lightning that hides some of the red marks.Can't see any improvement yet in the pics.

Yep, accutane dries your face and scalp out, meaning our hair texture will feel a bit less dense too and more thin.

good luck on tane, you seem like a cool guy

Day 18

What's up! I'm here again with a late night update:)

Was with my friend(s) mostly today and just surfed the internet, chilled.

There isn't that much going on the face department, I don't have that many huge zits now thought, the bumps are getting smaller slowly - redness is same as earlier


Yep, accutane dries your face and scalp out, meaning our hair texture will feel a bit less dense too and more thin.

good luck on tane, you seem like a cool guy


Oh this is good news, maybe I was just freakin out for nothing. It could definitely be this because there is no way the hair could have thinned so much in just a day or 2 that I would feel it - it got to be the oil production reduction, and thanks:)

Hey man. I agree 10mg is kinda low to start with, however there are some people that can't handle more than for example 20mg a day and still heal fine, maybe most famour is this guy from youtube:



He took 20mg pretty much the whole course, tried higher but couldn't handle and healed very good! Though if your skin isn't improving I'm sure your derm will bump the dosage up. You should also really get a lip balm, I have it always with me, Good luck to you Posted Image





Here's a song for yall, good night!

Day 20

Almost three weeks down already, wow

I'll post some pics tomorrow most likely :)

Today was pretty much the first day in 2-3 years that I've gone to the school and then with friends without having a shower first. Also didn't cleanse/moisture in the morning cause the skin felt good. I got a few pimples coming to a head during the day but it isn't insanely dry right now(haven't been to evening shower yet).

I have a lot of skin peeling, or not sure if it's peeling but I have LOTS of dead skin on my skin and it comes off in small bits/pieces if I slide my fingers over the skin with a bit of pressure. What can I do with it? Is it just a matter of bad cleanser? It hasn't come completely from the accutane because I had it before accutane.
If anyone got solutions let me know.

Day 22

Hey! In the last two or so days I have been having a new side effect,

My scalp has become dry and I have been having bits of it dropping off, I think it's called dandruff in english? Has anyone got a solution for this? I bought some Head&shoulders shampoo for dry scalp, hopefully it would help it a bit. The scalp has also been itchy which isn't the most pleasant thing, to say the least.

I'm in a bit of a hurry even now so I can post the pics today but they'll be up tomorrow :)

The skin's not that much different, a few new pimples up(breakouts)

I've been eating 30mg 1st day and now 45mg zinc for 5 or so days, haven't seen big improvements but it hasn't made the skin worse at least.

Here's today's song :) Have a good evening yall!

Using a dandruff shampoo is a great start! I have heard of a certain type of oil people rub on their scalp as well to help with the flakiness. Personally the head and shoulders shampoo alone has tamed my really itchy scalp :)

Day 23

Heyy! I don't got much to type down but I think the dandruff shampoo has helped slightly, I used it in the evening and in morning, gonna use it from now on every 2 or 3 days.

Today I've been having some pressure/slight pain in the area under where the ribs and sternum meet...I don't want to blame everything on accutane though, hope it goes away with a good night of sleep.

As far as the skin goes, the redness has in my opinion slightly just got more apparent, I don't have that many pimples now though, 2 in forehead, and maybe 4-5 on boths cheeks and 3-4 in the mouth/chin area, which is a lot less than what I had a month ago. The red marks look pretty much like pimples for ignorant people though so that doesn't help much :<

Anyway here's my pictures, I got a the two extra ones from yesterday when I waited my sister in the car and got bored!

Day 25

I'm halfway through my first pack of the isotretinoin - they come in 100 pills packets here in Finland

I've been breaking out again in the last 2 days, which is not nice to say the least...Don't know if it's like another IB or whatever but I'm not liking it!
Had this relatively small pimple that I think came out in the shower yesterday, now today it was full of groce pus and I popped and now it is so damn red and painful and has a big crater like in it Posted Image

Anyway not much else going on in my life at the moment, all my friends went to the club yesterday and I had my lonely moment alone because I just didn't want to go there looking like this. Doh, I'll hit it again when the skin is healed :)

Good night now all!

Day 28 (should've been 26th in my earlier post, got wrong by a day there >.<)

So, I almost thought that the breakouts would be over but today I got 2 new ones on the sides of my mouth, one in forehead which actually had NO pimples for around 4 days, and one on the left side of my face. Hope they're going away soon...

Apart from that not much different, I think a bump to 60mg on my next dermatologist meet would be appropriate, it is quite a far ahead though as here in Finland the isotretinoin comes in a packet of 100pills, so 50 days at a time






same situation as you dude i had to stay alone im too afraid to be seen by people so i zeroed all my contacts with friends i miss the days without acne


Yes...Still keep contact with your friends even though you wouldn't go for the girls...we'll have plenty of time for them but it ain't easy to get the friends back.

I can see some improvement in your pictures! Good Luck with your course Posted Image


thanks! Posted Image

Day 29


Hey,

I'm breaking again and what is my concern is that I have been getting close to the spots I had the bumps under my skin some new ones.
They are not that bad - yet - and hopefully won't become, either.

Small rashes in both hands that some hydrocortisone ,glycerol helps, they aren't that bad.

I still have lower back pains, I reckon exercise/getting back to the gym would help it. But I have a slight problems, how are you other accutane bros / girls dealing who exercise? After gym I'm sweating a lot so I obviously got to take a shower but the problem is I don't want to cause any extra irritation for the skin. How are you dealing with this? Just not cleansing and moisturising after the shower? I'm already having shower when I wake up and before I go to sleep, so I think a third could be too much and irritate the skin? Please share your experience.


What is your dosage? I just picked up my accutane today Posted Image I'm starting on 80 mgs ... Though this is my 2nd course.


I'm on 40 mgs a day, 20 morning and evening!
