Post-accutane 2.5 months
Sigh.... you guys, my little breakout is not improving. My skin is getting more oily, except for my cheeks. I've got a dermatologist appointment on Tuesday... not really looking forward to that. I'm just a little disappointed and down right now. Right now, I'm getting like a couple of new whitehead/borderline cysts every day. It seems to be getting worse, although I really can't tell at this point. Admittedly, it's nowhere as bad as it was before... yet. I just really thought accutane would be the magic bullet, even if it was for 6 months to a year. Now, my skin can't even stay clear for more than 2 months since coming off.
At first, I really thought it was just my body getting readjusted to getting off the drug, but it's been for like ~3 weeks now and no improvement. I think most people who had this post-accutane breakout cleared up way before.... so right now I'm not too hopeful.
Also, I'm dealing with the fact that I may be switching jobs soon, so the insurance thing is going to be tricky/impossible. I'm fully prepared that my dermatologist is going to recommend another course of accutane. I may have to pay out of pocket for this course if worst comes to worst. I guess I'm feeling pretty miserable right now. I'll keep you guys update.
