You look so great! I LOVE seeing progress shots and knowing I'm right around the corner from that!

Hey all!!! Ok so I need some support from those that have finished their course. I took my last pill 2 days ago and literally the day after I got a pimple...big enough to hurt when I touched it and it's small but still not gone. Today I noticed another 2 teeny tiny spots one on my forehead and one on my nose. I'm freaking out!!!! Is there such a thing as a post accutane breakout?? What is happening? I thought I was supposed to be clear and STAY clear after finishing.

Oh no! I'm still in treatment so I have no advice, but I wouldn't like that either. I would call the derm to see what they say about it.

Ok so things have calmed down and I am clear!!! Yay!! It is day 5 since my last pill and my lips are soooooooo much better. I still use aquaphor but now it's every few hours instead of every 20 minutes and my lips aren't peely at all. My nose is pretty much back to normal and my eyes don't burn in the morning when I wake up anymore. Still have a little muscle soreness but that is feeling much better. Looking forward to enjoying my new skin without the side effects!

Yay so happy for ya! I woke up today with very red eyes :( I should be thankful I've been able to wear my contacts up to this point. Hopefully a slight break of wearing my glasses will get them back into tip top shape!

Hey Erin,

How are things going for you? I just started my accutane journey and taking the same Absorica 60mg a day. I'm on day 5 and kind of freaked out. This morning after my pill my face got very red and felt almost warm/flush. Was this the same redness that you experienced? I started reading others reviews online that took accutane and reported the redness didn't go away. Sounds like your redness faded over time? I know this is an old post but hope you respond. Thanks

Dave

Not sure if you still visit this page but I would really like to hear about your experience post Accutane!

 

Love all the positivity in your log BTW.
