#3463428 Pityrosporum/ Malassezia Folliculitis

Posted by CWR24 on 10 December 2014 - 08:10 PM

Accutane will work because malassezia lives off of the oil on your skin and Accutane will dry your skin out. Pretty common to use Accutane to treat it.

#3460815 Accutane And Eyes, Advice Needed

Posted by CWR24 on 20 November 2014 - 02:52 PM

My eyes get blood shot sometimes too on Accutane. I believe its just do to the dryness. I also notice it gets worse in the winter. You can always ask your doctor if youre concerned

I know for a fact that in a few months you'll look back at this and be so glad you continued on with your course because youll be clear. Its not a fast acting medication but it work extremely well if you hold out for the whole course. 


We're are own worst critic. Acne sucks but dont be hard on yourself. You look great with or without it!

Itll get better! Remember you just increased your dosage and that usually causes more breakouts to occur.

Day 15 Update



So its been a little over two weeks and I cannot wait to be done already lol. I got two more medium sized papsules since my last update and I have two that are drying up still. It seems my actives are taking twice as long to dry up and disappear than before Accutane. My lips are increasingly dry, to the point where the chapstick I thought was working is not anymore. I tried another yesterday and it was worse! Ugh... this lips dryness is the absolute worst part personally. I bought another chapstick from Burtsbees this evening and I hope it will actually work this time. My hair grease is also nonexistent which is the nicest part of Accutane!


Otherwise I am feeling good. No other complaints here.

Go buy some Aquaphor for your lips. Its definitely the best to use while on Accutane. Itll be a life saver!

#3451429 Birth Control = Clear

Posted by CWR24 on 10 September 2014 - 09:23 AM

Birth control cleared up youre skin because it changes your hormones. Usually decreasing male hormones which is the cause of acne for most people.

#3449775 Accutane On Closed Comedones- Regretting It

Posted by CWR24 on 30 August 2014 - 04:09 PM

I would stick with it. Accutane causes everyones acne to become worse the 2-3 months then you usually see significant improvement. It also depends on your dosage as well.

Sadly, I think I'll have to go back on Epiduo because I can't take the hit on my self esteem!

I have the exact same kind of acne as well...

Ive been on Bactim before and its probably the best antibiotic for acne. I would request that like you said but Im not so sure Id start Differin again. It'll just cause you to breakout more, making your situation worse, especially if you only use it for a month. Me personally I would use Bactrim and some sort of BP until you get on Accutane. Most topicals are going to take 3 months to start seeing results so less is probably best in your case. Give your skin a little break before you start Accutane.

#3442596 How Long To Clear Up?

Posted by CWR24 on 21 July 2014 - 12:47 PM

Thats a good dose. As far as when youll start clearing up everyone is different. Some people clear by 2 months some it takes 5. I wouldnt get discouraged though just keep at it and youll see results.

Im not really sure why he would put you on a low dose especially 10mg. Honestly I think if you were on 10mg its going to take a very long time for you to clear up if you do. I would try to be on a minimum of 30mg the whole time. I only say this because you only want to have to go through this once if all possible. Thats just from my experience though..

#3437354 Claravis Vs Absorica Vs Lots Of Others....confused!

Posted by CWR24 on 22 June 2014 - 05:44 PM

All of them are the same except for Absorica which like you said the only difference is its absorbed better because it doesnt need to be taken with a fatty meal. I would prefer Absorica for that reason but they all do the same thing.
