Hi everyone! Sorry for the lack of updates. Today is day 200!
I haven't had any big pimples. A few occasional small ones here and there, but that's about it. I still have those two blackheads, that like I said, will not go away until I get them removed.
Other than that, I'm having some flushing in my face. Like when I'm embarassed/angry/frustrated.. my face turns SOOO RED! Also, I've noticed that if I take my pills too close to bedtime, I sweat during the night. I would suggest taking them either in the morning or in the middle of the day.
I'm so happy to be on Accutane. I fall more and more in love with it everyday. I honestly feel better on Accutane than I did on antibiotics. Yes, there are times when the Accutane hurts my stomach, but on antibiotics I felt naseous all the time. I was also tired ALL the time when I was on antibiotics and had that sweating thing every night. Plus Accutane WORKS!
Now thinking about it, there was nothing else that would have worked on my acne and I wish I had gone on it sooner. My acne was caused by severe oil production. Using antibiotics to kill off bacteria in this case is basically pointless. Topicals on the other hand, only dried out the top layer of my skin while my body still produced oil and acne.
My skin right now isn't nearly as dry and flaky as it was on topicals. My skin on topicals looked horrendous.
Hope everyone else is doin great as well and thank you guys for your support and encouragement
