8 posts in this topic

Hi my name is Brady, Im 15 years old and tomorrow I start accutane or roaccutane as they call it here in AUS, I'll be keeping you updated probably from day to day, but 1st I'll just share my journey, so i have had very mild acne like 1-3 pimples since I was 13, but this year I started to get really bad acne, like i have/had two huge cystic acne pimples on my cheeks for a month now and they are disgusting, they have been less inflamed lately because of this table called SONE but as far as I'm aware that's all SONE does, so right now I have been on the Regimen for nearly 3 weeks now and I was going to wait a bit to see if that did it but my mum thinks i should go on accutane and so does the derrm, with the regimen I have been going through the stages of results page, the itchiness etc.., so I think my skin has improved a bit it basically feels flat, but has so many red marks all over, if you want photos i can pm them to you, if anyone has any tips,comments anything please feel free to comment below or pm me, any help would be much appreciated thanks

Hi Brady,

Can you pm me some photos? My 14 yr old son is on day 46 of Accutane. For your dry lips I highly recommend Bag Balm. I don't know if it's available in Australia though. At first my son tried Aquaphor but it was horrible, it made his lips worse and he had a bad reaction to it. Bag Balm is also good if you get a really dry or raw patch of skin that you want to heal faster. Leave it on overnight and in the morning it will be much improved.

Hi i havent started yet, my skin is basically flat now and feels nice just really red marks in most places, does everyone still recommend going on accutane?

well its up to you, accutane will only really stop pimples, so if you aren't getting pimples any more, then don't take it, because having dry lips is pretty annoying. otherwise if you still break out badly, take it!
