I'm thinking my IB might be over. I'm still getting new zits, but no new ones today! All my cysts are healing or gone. Just lots of red marks. I don't know how to tell if they're red marks or scars, but I guess time will tell. I'll post new pictures on day 30.
Hum12, I would give your derm a call and let them know about it and tell them you're worried. I was kind of the opposite. I'm very irregular and hadn't had mine in almost two months, but about three days after I started Accutane my period started. Sorry I'm not more help. :/

Day 20!! Slowly moving along with this...
My skin hasn't been too dry yet, but the weather has been very warm up until today (80s). Today it has been cold and my skin is dry, but I am always dry when it's cold. My lips are fine, but I apply chapstick religiously and always have. I do have a patch on each cheek that is scaly and no matter how much moisturizer I use it won't change. I even tried Aquaphor on it because I use it on my hands when they get really bad, but it didn't help. Any suggestions?
My hair is starting to dry out, which is nice. I was experiencing a really dry, flaky, itchy scalp fr a few days so I decided to invest in coconut oil which supposedly works wonders. I left it in over night and woke up at 5 am scratching. By 5:45 I decided to wash my hair because I was so miserable, went back to sleep, and woke up to a sore scalp. I need to try again because now I have a lot of oil to use up. Anyways, after that I was shedding a lot but I think it was because I used oil, shampooed twice, and conditioned all in one morning.
As for my acne, no improvement yet. I am still getting new zits every day, which seem to pop up in an hour but won't leave.
I have had a back ache every day since starting. It's my lower back, and I mainly notice when I first lay down... not fun, but not unbearable either. I also get a mild headache if I don't drink enough water throughout the day.
I had headaches starting on around Day 2 and it lasted until about Day 5.
I just started getting lower back pains when I go to lay down at night. It will only last for a few seconds though. Also, it's fine when I'm up and moving around but if I bend over and get up, I can feel it. It's a 2 when bending over and like a 3 or a 4 when laying down at night.

I also found this article about Salma Hayek and it says she took Accutane. I realize the pictures of her are air brushed, but she is gorgeous.
