Third Month, Day 1
First 2 months are DONE. Triglycerides came down, and hepatic panel looks great. I'm on 80mg and have a followup with my derm tomorrow afternoon.
My skin is dry. My legs and the tops of my feet are itchy, so I smeared on a bunch of hydrocortisone. My face is really red. I went out of my way Sunday to wear sun block, but I think I burned anyway. Patients keep pointing out how much sun I got lately, so I have to keep telling them I've been outside at the beach, or whatever
I can't tell if I'm more tired than I usually am since I haven't been NOT taking accutane since 2 months ago... just sort of accepting it for what it is, only a few months left.
So, my red, inflamed face looks terrible. I covered it in Desonide, and even put Denoside on my lips (topical corticosteroid). I'm hoping that calms down things. Letting that sink in, then will moisturize my face and stay inside until morning.
I hope I don't have to lower my dose, I'm thinking it was the sun that did me in, even though I wore sunblock (I think it was SPF 30 or 40). And, it's hard to stay inside because it's summer.
Also, I have this large cyst on the back of my neck. I'll have to remember to ask my derm if he can I&D it tomorrow at my appointment.
