Day 73. Not much change... I did just realize I didn't actually have cystic acne, although that's what I'd been claiming. I'm not sure how it's supposed to be classified. I just know every dumb pimple left a red mark. I have noticed it takes longer for my skin to heal though. A week and a half ago I cut a cut on my finger (very minor, more of a pinch), and the mark is still there. It's almost gone now. Normally it would be gone in about 3 days. Andddddd my hand rash is coming back again. It seems like whenever it gets cold it comes back.
I get scratches and cuts so easily and they take forever to heal tooo!

Hey bmarie, I am very happy about your treatment and how it is working for you.
P.S., do you happen to have any body acne as well?
Regarding the dry/flaky skin on your cheeks, do you rub it off with anything, or just leave it be?

B Marie, glad that everything is continuing to improve for you. Accutane is a tough drug but if you stick with it, good things will result. Can't wait to see your progress pictures
It's a rocky road but like everything else in life, there is always a beginning and an end. Here's to finding my end.
God is good to me..........more than I deserve.

Thanks! I'm supposed to be on it 6 months, but I wonder if they'll shorten it to 5, especially because I'm on a high dose. I was on 40 mg daily for a month, and now 80 for the rest of it.
yeah that would be nice to get off the accutane a month early huh? i am suppossed to start it in march but i dont know what dose i will be on. how do they determine the dosing? some of it has to do with weight right?
did accutane make your face more red at all? i have heard it does that to some people.

Wow girl you have made a lot of progress and my derm said to me when they start you kind of high you get that IB and redness but it def will fade, I'm sure the redness will fade soon. Looks like the IB is done. Yayy! I'm starting my Tane tomorrow just picked up my pack she is starting me low on 10mg. I will make a log. I am the side effects queen so this should be interesting.. LOL
