Oh, that's good then! BP makes me super flaky. I have to exfoliate to get rid of the flakes. So, I hope accutane isn't as drying. Though, I guess it depends mostly on the individual.:P

 

I hope you keep seeing improvement. It's awesome your nodular acne has cleared up, those are the worst!

Week 5

 

Dosage: 20mg - daily

 

Acne: Mildly Moderate - So a nodule came up where your jaw meats your ear. -_-" Just as I was free! It isn't noticeable anyway, haha. A few smaller breakouts on my upper cheeks, which isn't a problemo.

 

Side effects: - Still the same old dry skin, lips, casual back pain in the morning - after sport. No new effects.

 

Experience Rating: Still amazed! A+ Should be seeing my derm in a few weeks to see how it's going for him.

Week 6 and a 1/2 (late by 2 days)

 

Dosage: 20mg - daily

 

Acne: Mild - That nodule has disappeared, a true testament to the power of accutane. Nothing noteworthy, my skin is oh so smooth and now I can class my acne as mild. I still have a few teeny tiny bumps but yeah, good enough!

 

Side effects: - Still the same old dry skin, lips, casual back pain in the morning - after sport. No new effects.

Although I've noticed when I feel really hot/in a stuffy or warm area, my nose does bleed. It happened at a Korean BBQ restaurant where there was so much heat, air-conditioned car on a rainy day and in a stuffy classroom. It's more prevalent with Accutane that's for sure and it's winter here in Australia!

 

Experience Rating: My amazement has toned down lol. It's like, "Oh, it's been a week already?" There is not much to improve on now!

Hi Jikstah

 

Just wondering where you had SGA performed? I am concerned that you were expecting your breakout to clear after 3 treatments, was this the advise you received from the Clinic or was this your expectation? SGA is very effective but people usually need 6 to 10 treatments to see a significant result.
