Hi guys. I'm a 20 year old guy from Sydney, Australia and this is my Roaccutane journal. The purpose of this journal is for me to keep track of my progress, share thoughts, ask questions and generally mingle with other people who have this problem.
Today is my first day of Accutane. The course will apparently be 6 months long. Along with the accutane i'm on EES for a few weeks (also known as Erythromycin i believe) as recommended by my derm to reduce the effects of the initial breakout. I started the EES about 5 days ago.
I'm on 10mg of Accutane a day for two weeks, then 20mg for two weeks, then finally 30mg until my next checkup with the derm in 2 months time (April 14 i think).
I start my Uni semester in less than two weeks but I'm not worried about the initial breakout cause, lets face it, i'm a baws. Anyway, I'm more interested in getting this solved for the long term.
I've bought a cleanser by Cetaphil, not really sure how to use it in conjuction with the accutane treatment. Should i cleanse while i shower in the evening? In the morning when i wakeup ? Once or twice a day? Etc. If anyone could help me with that i'd appreciate it.
That's all i can think of to say in my first post, lets hope for the best! Oh, and i'll upload pics later today or tomorrow.
