Please Work Accutane!


Best Answer blabla05, 18 June 2013 - 11:37 PM

OMG i read this post and i soooo can relate to to u!!! My acne looks just like yours ! And its also mostly on my right side ! And guess what! Mines started right after i got stupid depo shot!! :/ and im also was gunna start accutane they pescribed me 20mg / day. Yet still havent taken it im scared of side effects lol but i
So tired of this acne! I swear that depo shot is the worst birth control method ever!! I was even thinkin i was allergic to it or sumthin cus in a matter of months it kept gettin worse and worse . And i only got one shot! So let me know how it s going for u ! Since like i said i can sooooo relate to ur story!


omg wow thats nuts.. mine depo shot would have expired in december so im hoping majority of it is out of my system i have no acne anymorr just redness that will hopefully fade out after i stop accutane... i probably will break out again but wont be as severe....... i wont ever take bc ever again in any kind!!

I get itchy skin too, worst right after a shower. I just load up on the moisturizer any time I was my hands or take a shower (like 3 times a week now, I'm just too dry)

Secretsky - there are antibiotics you can take along with accutane, like erythromycin, maybe you could do both?

How long have you been on accutane for and have you seen much improvement?

34 days at 20mg - My derm sees improvement but I dont. I have many cysts and nodules though, my condition is severe. My surface acne is much improved
but I got more cysts with my IB so I feel like I'm not improved yet.

Day 13: Well, got more pimples. So no improvement at all really. Except I'm loving the fact my face doesn't go greasy throught the day. Lips are dry as hell and sore! No more itchy eyebrows but scalp is. So much to go.. cannot wait for the overall result.

Just finished first packet! My face isn't as itchy and Ive noticed my face is general is a lot less red? Unless thats just me imagining things. Not too much improvement still getting pimples everyday. They heal a lot quicker and better though!

I made the same mistake getting my eyebrows waxed while on Accutane. I used a scar gel and that helped them heal (if she removed skin).

You'll notice a lot of a breaking out and clearing up about the first 2 months. I didn't have a single break out after that. I liked to think of it as the more pimples I got the more it was pushing out and I wouldn't have to deal with later on in the course.

As for your nose bleeds, as gross as it is, I used vaseline or aquaphor on a q-tip inside my nose during the night to combat the dryness. Also a humidifier in your room/where you sleep may help in these winter months.

Yeah my skin ripped off looked horrible!! I used corrisone cream worked pretty well! Healed quite well, turned me off waxing for life!

Thanks for your tips!!

Hey blabla05 ....
Sorry for responding SO late. Holidays and all had me pretty much occupied.
So how has it been so far?
I keep getting breakouts that just don't want to stop ;-( This time around on accutane is SO much different than my first shot at it. It's kind of weird but I'm still hanging on.
I stuck with accutane honestly and found another doc that I will make an apnt with asap. He's kinda far away so I have to make time to go.
How was your Christmas and new years day? Hope you had a good time.

I saw your recent pic! I think it looks pretty good!
So you did get your IB eh? yup its a sucker. BUT hang in there!

Hope all is well, and sorry for being so late again.
Take care

Hey blabla05! Hang in there! I'm on day 33 (or 35 if you count the days I went without pills after the first month) and I am still getting new spots... Its not as bad as my initial IB, which got bad quickly then took forever to fade somewhat... It looks like you are much further along than I was when mine started (day 8). I just kept telling myself during the worst of it, this is a good thing and now my skin is starting to calm down and change. It still looks bad but in a more manageable way if that makes sense. I have acne that scabs over really bad and the scabs are 95% gone now, but the active spots and larger cysts are still there. I've had cortisone shots, but they don't help much, only with small ones.

Myresults_xnow's comment seems to be pretty accurate cause this is the beginning of my second month and I'm still going through the cycles of break out then get better than break out again, but each new breakout is not as bad as the earlier ones, so that gives me some hope!

Good luck! I'm sure the journey will be well worth the wait in the end. ;)
