Day 18 - Going out with a few friends tonight and having a few beers, going to miss a pill. Slighty discouraged right now. Didn't think I would have to be on this for more than 3 months but it looks like things are starting to get worse. I still have ways to go! and on a better note, only thing I've experienced as far as side effects go; chapped lips(not to bad) and flaky skin(moderate)

Day 19 - Oh man not a very good last few days. Getting a TON of these weird pimples on my back and neck area, there very very smally but very bumpy, they're like in my skin and they aren't red it's really hard to explain but very annoying. Skins really dry, lips are chapped. Feeling really shitty overall. Blackheads appearing. Sides are my face are pretty good, forehead is pretty good(some blackheads on it not many like 5-6 small ones) Hoping this doesn't last long not very happy compared to around day 11

Day 20- Today things seem to be getting slighty better, hopefully not jinxing it. I am getting these small bumps in very weird places, on my ear lobes and behind my ear, very annoying. my face itself actually doesn't look to bad. Posting pictures later today. Chest looks alright, back however it a mess in my opinion :(. no side effects expect for chapped lips and and dry skin.

I had those weird little bumps in places i never had them and if they're acne, they will eventually fade away. You have to gear yourself up for the IB as it will get worse. i just started month 3 and at the end of month 2 to the present is when my acne has started to get worse.

Keep your head up as in most to all accutane cases, acne is put in remission or at the least, improved.

Good Luck

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.

Day 25 - Nothing new to report; went to the city saw the tree was really nice. was really cold feel like I'm getting sick. skin feels good though : )

Day 26 - I am sick, this sucks, day before X-mas eve have pretty nice looking skin and I have to be sick : ( same old chapped lips and dry skin.

Day 27 - Christmas eve and I am sick, this sucks. Skin looks nice tomorrow will probably do a little update. Shaved today and for the first time I felt cofident(shaving usually brakes me out) I have a great feeling it will be a clean shave. Tomorrow is suppose to be 1 month but I drank a few times and missed a few pills so I am about day and a half beind. wow 1 month already!

Day 30 - Wow it's been a month already I feel like my skin has improved significanlty. So here's the break down of month 1. Started off pretty good, exsisting pimples started to get really flaky and just started to like peel off of my skin. My skin started getting really red around my cheeks(lasted for about 5 days) after it went away I started to experience moderator flaky skin which was taken care of with nivea. I didn't experience to much of chapped lips although it is exsisting it's fairly mild. I experienced a little Ib really wasn't bad at all and only lasted about 7 days. The only thing I am concered with was around day 20ish I started getting small bumps behind my ears and all over my back they're pretty itchy at times. the ones behind my ears and some off my neck basically went away with the exception of a few. Though my skin is looking better I still have a lot of work to do. well 1 month down. 30 MG twice a day. posting pics soon.

Day 35 - Well well, I feel really good today skin feels amazing ! still dry and still mild chapped lips. still got these small bumps on my back and on my chest. The ones behind my ear are almost gone. I am not sick anymore =). Goung out for new years and it's going to great. Though unforunately I will be drinking so that means I will be missing a pill :\. I will not be updating this everday. I will be updating every other day or every 5 days as more happens in between. Thanks! Pictures posted.

Yeah this thing has done wonders for my face, chest still needs working on and my back. I probably will be on it for 3 months max. which is 2 more months, rather than the 5 months my derm said to be estimated time.

Going on Tuesday.

Not exactly sure what day I am on but here's the update. Well hasn't been a good last few days. Got huge 1 big ingrown zit on my chin which hurt so bad !! Going away now though. I got 3 pimples on my head and 1 on each side of my face. Whatever that's not the bad part. The bad part is that these little bumps have been coming back. I have them pretty much all over my back, some of my chest and now for some reason they are starting to cover my right arm. They are not inflammed, they're red, and they're not pus filled. You can barely see them but when you touch them they're bumpy. thet get ithcy at times. anyone have any advice :s

Figured these little bumps look like an allergic reaction to something. They're all over my right arm, some on my left and a ton on my back. They are pretty itchy. I took a benedryll last night and it seemed to help about 35% of it. I only took one because It was late at night and it puts me into a deep sleep. I took 2 just now I'll let you know how that goes. As far as my skin, chest is def clearing up that's the good news.Face is about 90% clear, which is also the good news. It's just these damn bumps. Mild chapped lips and still moderator dry skin.

~new pics soon.

HEY. Good news saw my derm today. Blood test came out 100%! I was actually really surprised because I get my blood test on January 3, and I was drinking Decemeber 31(New Years Eve). Well here's what happened. She came in and was amazed how good my skin looked, she than proceeded to tell me that my blood work was fine and that she is probably going to take me off of this in 1 MONTH :). So that will mean I am on it for a total for 90 days, 45 days left. Skin hasn't been as dry, chapped lips still mild, however I got a lot of bumps on my arms and they aren't acne. My derm said that I should use aquaphor on it she said ecezma bumps do occur while on accutane. No other side effects to report :)

pics tomorrow.
