no, i ask because it looks like you picked at it. Some of my body pimples look similar to what that pimple is like.

What is the reason why your derm injected your cysts? Is it to prevent scarring, or because they werent healing?

Also, how many cysts did you get injected?

The reason I owuld assume is so the inflamation on my cysts would go down, and also to prevent scarring I hope. I haven't really asked why I just assume it's good for me because he keeps doing it, otherwise I would have huge red lumps coming out of my neck. I have had probably twenty cysts injected on my neck alone because sometimes they will keep coming back in different places. I also get cysts underneath my hair in the back of head that I get injected :/

How long do the cysts last before having them injected?

They go go from pimple looking to cysts almost overnight. They can go from me hardly noticing they are there to inflamed big and red in just a couple hours from me touching it, sleeping on it, whatever. After they turn into cysts I go and make a dermatologist appt. ASAP. Sometimes it takes me a few days to get in there so I walk around with big cyst or two on my neck. Talk about a psychological nightmare.

really? Did you get all those cysts injected too, or did you let them heal by themselves?

Some injected, some just let heal. I used to be very scared of needles when I had cysts on my chest and back and I could only handle injections in some spots. I can't tell what spots I had injected or what spots I didn't, it was so long ago for my chest and back. I'll get a cyst from time to time on my chest and get it injected but that's about it.

Problem I'm having: One day I get very dry skin and extremely chapped lips and the next day my lips are fine and my skin doesn't look dry. Is there something wrong? Has anyone else noticed this before? Something I'm going to ask my dermatologist next time I'm there. :/

AZ is awesome and ready for you!! My face is getting better... I feel like. Still an uphill battle right now but I'm regaining more and more confidence each day so that's good. For some reason I don't really get dry skin or lips on accutane and my dermatologoist said that the medicine is still working I am just one of the lucky ones that don't really get peeling skin and extremely dry lips, I thought that was really cool. About to start month three! I think you and I are at about the same point on our courses so once you move out here we should just about be done on accutane Posted Image Can't wait to finish

Posting the videos became too much of a hassle, and I don't think many people watched them. I will try and post one at the end of my course. I will post pictures from now on. Here are pictures from a month before accutane, week 1 of accutane, and now week 8 of accutane. Big improvement? Posted Image I just got another 30 day supply of accutane, and I won't post another picture until I finish week 12! Hopefully things continue to improve.
