Day 33

I never had any breakouts other than my face and today i have a big whitehead on my neck. The rest is pretty calm and Im off of Azythromycine for 3 days. Now 40mg tane only. Chin and forehead didnt have any new for almost 10 days. Two giants on my left cheek arent going away. Though they aren't painful and irritating but they pop up and go down every other day. Hope they will go down completely this week. I do breakout on my cheekbones both sides but overall i feel much comfortable. No serious dryness except a little bit of peeling. Lips and eyes are absolutely fine. Lower back pain is still there (only in morning).

Thats all to report. Posted Image

DAY 38

Still calm. I only have one new tiny zit on my right cheek and on left only 1 active which is now 3 weeks old and not going down. You can see on the picture below. The forehead and chin is completely cleared and the red marks are fading out. Other than these freaking red marks, I'm pretty much happy with the results so far. I'm loving my skin. No dryness whatsoever, lips and eyes are absolutely fine. Only in morning i feel lower back pain. The rest is absolutely fine.

Mate glad to hear that your skin is starting to improve. Hopefully your skin will keep improving at the same rate.

Thanks jamie. It really is working for me. It has been a long time since i had a new spot/breakout on my face. I'm all clear now but left with tons of red marks. But the good thing is, they are fading out, not so quick but gradually healing up :). As for the side effects, I'm so glad to report that I'm not experiencing any serious dryness on my face, lips and eyes. Everything is going perfectly fine except a very slight lower back pain when i bend down and pick up something heavy. So far so good, loving my smooth skin, everyone noticing and making me remember those terrible days when i had tons of whiteheads n zits on my cheeks (see pictures). Hope this will keep on going the same way.

thats all to report for now.

DAY 61

WOAH!!!! 2 months gone and I'm doing great. Time is running fast now. I'm loving everything. My skin is still clear. I had a very tiny little breakout twice during these 20 days but that was absolutely ok, nothing to worry about. I'm just having lower back pain which is somewhat bearable. Other than that, everything else is just perfect, no dryness no chapped lips.

I will upload my latest pictures later today. The red marks are still there but fading out.

Wow you're doing so great! Are your red marks from before accutane fading too? I'm afraid my red marks are going to stick around forever!

I had a very few marks before accutane and yes they are fading too. You can see the results, I have improved big time in the last 20 days. Just hang in there and stay positive, I hope you aren't breaking out as bad as i did (see pictures of my IB). I thought it is going to leave scars n pits on my face but how it went down so quick is incredible and I'm looking forward to seeing the improvements in the same way. Goodluck with your course.

Tane is indeed a life saver and it is currently my best friend :) I'm so excited to go out again with my friends and family without hiding my face. I hated those days when i didnt look at them while talking so they'd notice the shit on my face and suggest all those useless home remedies n diet changes etc. I'm waiting for the day when I'm all clear from marks n scars and i know thats not too far, only one day closer to clearer spotless skin :) -fingers crossed-

Woah!!!!!! I'm half way through. 3rd Month ended. Ahhh... Its been a month that I didnt post here. Probably the reason for not posting here was nothing new happened. But for past couple of days, my lower back pain is gone worse and intense. I cant bend down :(. Its painfull. But I'm still positive and lots of improvements in this month. My right cheek is clearing up so fast, the red marks and scars are fading. Left cheek has couple of embossed spots left from my IB. Chin and forehead is completely clear, no marks/scars on forehead and chin whatsoever, yayyyy!!! I get a very tiny little zit on my left cheek once in a week and it goes down in just 1 day. One more thing that I haven't told you guys that I have a big cyst in a very odd place that i cant tell you. And its been there for a long long time, probably for 2 months. It pops up and goes down every know and then. Though its not painful. The rest is pretty fine and calm, I'm feeling a lot better and confident. Everyone noticing the improvements and making me remember those horrible IB days. Cant go back to my IB, that was the worst time of my life.

New photographs will be up in a day or two. :)

DAY 109

The Lower back pain has gone calm. Nothing new on face. No breakouts for a month or so. This is so great feeling. I have never ever had a whole month this much calmer for past 10 years. I'm eating everything i want, not so junk but everything that i avoided and didnt want to eat which caused breakouts. Only two and a half months remaining, wow thats gone so fast. Feels like i started tane yesterday.

Thats all to report for now. -fingers crossed-

Wow, absolutely incredible...

The difference is amazing, but what's more amazing is that you can almost see your confidence building in every photograph.

I am always so happy when I see results like this, and it does help knowing that there will be an end to it all some day!

Keep going and good luck, truly amazing!
4 weeks until I go on Accutane!
