DAY 50 WUHUUUUU

Overall my face has started to improve I guess! Im not getting as much pimplets as before! Chin is staying the same, no new pimplets, and red marks are fading slowly!! Cheeks have improved a lot, cause I'm not getting so much pimplets anymore, which is great! Aaaand red marks are still fading! Forehead is still the same, getting pimplets sometimes, but not worse... Now I'm getting pimplets places where I haven't got before, anyone who has experienced this?? I have recently got 4-5 around my right temple (Is this the word??),,,, Appointment with my derm at January 30, which is getting close!! :)

I wish everyone a happy new year! :)

DAY 54

Bad news.. As i thought my face just was going to improve, my thoughts were wrong. I have got a IB, and I'm breaking out a lot, it's so terrible. I hate looking at myself in the mirror, and I really want to look at myself and be happy, but it's so hard with this acne.. Im trying to hold my head up, probably gonna stay at home from school tomorrow.. Here are some pictures of me taken 5 mins ago, literally.. Looks so horrible :(

I'm trying to hold my head up as much as possible even though it's very hard.. Thank you for your support :) I'm almost at my 2nd month too, still at 40 mg per day, but having a derm appointment on january 30, so maybe he's upping my dosage..

I stayed home from school today, unfortunately..

Oh no I am sorry :( I just started my 3rd month yesterday and boy was the end of month 2 hard for me!! Maybe we just got our IB's later in treatment? Here I was all happy thinking I was one of the lucky few who didn't get an IB, WRONG. Went to the derm yesterday tho and he went thru and popped a lot of my under the skin ones so my skin looks so how kinda better? Idk! I was horrible the last week tho! Luckily we are getting far enough in treatment that it's closer to the end! Keep your head up, it will be worth it! I hope eusa_pray.gif

Thanks so much for your reply, kenzie.. Hehe, I did also thought that I wouldn't get an IB, but yeah.. I was wrong, just like you.. My IB is though clearing up at the moment.. Still looks bads, because of the red marks and stuff, but it's a lot better than before. Ohh... My reg doctor actually told me to ALWAYS leave the pimplets alone.. Dunno if my derm will pop some of them though.. Having an appointment on January 30, looking forward to it! We are almost halfway there!! I really hope that accutane will clear both of us up!

Hugs! :)

Day 62 (Month 2!)

Weehhh 2 months have passed! I have not got any pimplets recently after my IB, my face is improving but still bad after the IB! I guess my red marks have faded on my cheeks, cause I'm not really getting as much pimplets as earlier.. It's so great!!! :) I'm so happy at the moment, and I do really hope for that my face only is going to improve from now on! Would be so awesome for me, really.. Everything is just great at the moment, and I can hardly even think about my skin (which is great), cause I'm so busy with school, my girlfriend, work etc.. Aaaaannnd it has just started snowing today!! weeehhh snowballs :D

Hope that everyone is having a good time, hugs :)

I am 17 too. I am on day 42 of Claravis 40 mg daily. My skin looks worse than ever. My lips are dry, but not horrible. Have a dance on Friday, so I hope that it looks a little better by then. My skin has never looked better while on this, only worse. I hope that it's working and I am not going to be a case where it doesn't work.

Trust me.. At that time my face was also very bad-looking, and it was definetely the worst part going through... Ohh.. I hope that your acne will improve and heal, but don't let it affect you from having a nice day anyway, please :)

DAY 79 (2½ months)

So today I was at my regular doc for a blood test, and afterwards I was at my derm. He has upped my dosage, so I'm now supposed to take 80 mg per day, until the start of April (2 months). I really hope that I wont get an IB, as my dosage has been upped, I cross my fingers! I haven't got any annoying pimplets recently, but my face is still healing from my IB, and I have got spots just beside where my big pimplets were. I really just hope to be clear of acne, red marks and scars at the end of the accutane journey. I was at the pharmacy and have got pills for 1 month so far :) On sunday and monday I was very sad and felt really depressed. But since that time it has only got better, and I'm trying to be as happy as possible even though having acne.

Hope that everyone have a nice day :)

It's hard to stay positive. My cheeks are a red, pimply, inflamed mess. My face is much worse than it ever was pre-acutane. But, hopefully, my skin will be

clear by prom in mid May. I just feel like everyone is staring at me and wondering why I don't do something about my skin.

I know exactly how you feel, I feel in the same way bro.. But hey.. Go take a look at some other logs, and you will see how bad they felt etc. etc. and now they're great without any acne! I know it's hard to think positive while having acne, but try as much as u can. In the end you will probably just think "Why didn't I just feel happy all the time?.. Clear skin in a matter of time! :)

DAY 85

Feeling happy. Improvements and only like 1 pimplet under my skin left. Life is great, enjoying waking up every morning to see new positive results. Skin has become more dry upping my dosage, as well as my lips have. It's ok - if just I remember to mousturize. Hugs everyone and GL to everyone on accutane :)

I am about half way through my treatment- taking 40 mg 2X a day and now the pharmacy tells me Claravis in on backorder. I have been trying to get it for 2 weeks, and they just told me that today. I have 2 pills left. I am ticket that I am going to have to go without for who knows how long. My skin isn't really breakout, but it is covered with red marks and looks like crap. This is my 2nd month on 80mg total a day and I other than dry lips, I don't really have side effects.
