Aww, hi I am new here. One thing I noticed right away: everyone is suffering a lot, everyone seems to respond differently to a degree but there are definitely similarities and obvious no-nos and positive experiences. I feel for you, the past two weeks I have barely been able to make myself leave the house, but I also have had to go and teach classes of beautiful fresh-faced young college kids while my own face was peeling, pussing, generally gross. It has been painful. Scary.... 

 

lillyholic yes exactly! Well I am one of those college kids except that I am not the traditional age for college and so I'm a bit older than most of my classmates (by about 4-8 yrs). And yet my skin looks like I'm about 16 right now! So frustrating and embarrassing. I am determined to not let it affect my school work though so I force myself to go to class, but most days I just wish we could have a virtual classroom or something. =/

40yrs old female here. On week 9 of Accutane. So far it's the only thing that has worked. I am clear since week 6. Hoping it will be a permanent solution. No side effects except really bad back ache.

Glad to hear that yours is clear. I just found out my derm misunderstood the whole iPledge 30 day wait. So she is just registering me today and I have to wait 30 days from today before I can even start now (she thought they based it on my pregnancy tests). =( I'm pretty upset. I mean I know it's just a delay, but still I was thinking that I was going to start sometime next week. *sigh*

If your derm doesn't understand how ipledge works, I would find a new derm. She obviously doesn't prescribe accutane and you should have someone with knowledge about it.

Actually she does and has been practicing for over 30 years and has put many people on accutane but hasn't had a female patient on it in a while for whatever reason.

You may want to try Jason's Naturals Dandruff Shampoo - it has salicylic acid, sulphur, rosemary, olive and jojoba oils. I'm using it on my skin, and it's clearing me right up.
