in my early 20's i have super clear skin with occasional pimples during menstrual time and that changes when im hitting 30, well from mild to moderate acne, from menstrual to no reason 2-3 pimples and cyst will come and decided to say hello!...
tired & sick of looking at my acne everyday plus other people keep asking me what happen to my face i decided to see derm and he said that i have severe acne thus prescribing me accutane 20mg a day probably the same dosage until the end of my journey. by the way im 5'3" and 123lb, living in hot and humid weather around 32 degree everyday. And now im documenting it...or should i say , i just need some support and pour all of my frustration, up and down while on accutane with writing.. Been reading that accutane is not fun...lol
What my derm prescribe me
20mg accutane daily
neostrata skincare - facial cleanser, oily skin solution (glycolic acid),daytime protection cream with spf 15, duac as spot treatment(benzoyl peroxide+clindamycin),
Well actually im on my Day 11.... , anyway i just write it down...
Day 1 -4
No side effect, no improvement
Skin starts to feel sting ,burn, itchy, light chapped lips
Skin feels burn like hell, sting and itchy like crazy and my dead skin falling apart , i feel like snake changing his skin....so i call my derm , he's not in and his assistant told me to stop duac...refuse to follow her advise , i stop using neostrata, duac immediately for a while. No Initial breakout. face becomes red. My derm didn't give me any moisturizer...** i hate him for that** so i went to pharmacy and get physiogel AI cream
skin still burning like hell, not using neostrata and duac today, my dead skin thinks that it is fall season.... i have dead skin all over my place... . No IB, light manageable chapped lips. somehow i feel hot i mean im sweating. weird ??
skin stop to feel burning, itchy and sting .... from manageable chapped lips to severe chapped....i feel my mouth is falling out.....apply ego qv lip balm like crazy....IB starts... i think so... new 3-4 nodule at same place forming cyst... on my left cheek, and 3 big whithead ready to be pop... at the most weirdest place ...eyebrow..... not one but 3....perfectly in line with my eyebrow...haha funny ......still sweating hot.
Day 9 - 11
