I feel your pain foxtrotter! I'm on day 17 and my IB is awful! Starting to question whether the spots i had before accutane were so bad :/ But we started this process for a reason so we may as well finish it!! Try to stay positive and not lose hope I just tell myself that however i feel today is short term and come summer i'm going to be going out with no make-up on and full of confidence!! WE WILL HAVE CLEAR SKIN Stay strong
Thanks Charlotte. Yeah, I know I need to stay strong.. and I'm trying to! I try to believe that come summer time I won't have to put on any makeup too haha.
Month 2 Day 10: So there was a bump that had a flake on it, so i scratched the flake off and then saw a head to a pimple, I applied a teeny bit of pressure and BAM ooze of pus/blood. then more blood. then BAM it looked like a damn ice pick scar. I freaked out and washed it with some dial soap then put some vaseline on it so it would heal up really fast.. So scared I fucked up. GRRRRRR! HATE THESE DAMN PIMPLES!
I have came across some good products to use though:
Neosporin Cream- I apply a dot on the pimples I popped right after. Heals them up pretty well so they don't scab n what not.
Petroleum jelly/vaseline- I get a qtip and swirl some around my nose to prevent waking up with crusty ass boogers some of which are bloody.
Cerave Moisturizing Cream- still using. Love this stuff. Slowly clearing the rash on my right hand with it
Still praying for improvement
