Okay so I'm starting this log to keep track of my 2nd course of accutane which starts today 5/23/2013.
My first round was in Nov 07- April 08 and it worked great, almost no acne for almost 2 years, after that only an occasional minor breakout once in a while that was no big deal.
I did have a pretty bad breakout a few years ago which I was able to control with proactiv, bentonite clay and SA peels. I was maintaining with proactiv for a while until Nov of last year when I wanted to get away from BP. About a month later I stared breaking out pretty bad, I tried a bunch of more natural products like burts bees, tea tree oil, better diet, green smoothies and no dairy with no results.
So I gave in and tried the new proactiv plus for six weeks. I liked it but it had no effect on my acne so I went back to regular proactiv for four weeks with no results.
So now I'm back where I started with the more natural approach and I'm only using Lerosett topically. It's been a week and I've been breaking out pretty bad which I hope is just an IB but who knows.
I also started a second round of accutane today as well. It's only 20mg a day to start so I don't expect to see any results in the first month one way or another but at least I'm on the right track. I don't remember the dosage I had the first time around but this time I'm going to push for the 80mg as soon as I can get it because I only had some dryness the last time.
I plan on posting progress picks every week. If anyone has any questions don't hesitate to ask.
Btw I'm 26/m/~170lbs and 99% of my acne is on my face.
