Sooooo, basically, it's nearing the end of Week 7:

I went to the dermatologist today, and as soon as she saw me, she started talking to me about Accutane! :) I just kind of acted like I didn't know what she was talking about (but I have probably watched every accutane diary on Youtube). Sooo basically, my mom is picking up the prescription today, and I cannot actually start taking the pills until I go get my blood work done at the lab on Monday, so yeah! This log lasted long... haha ;)

So according to my Dermatologist, this regimen of Tazorac and Minocycline has not worked for me. I would have given it some more time. But she is the one who went to school for skin so--

Catch ya on the Accutane section!! :) Thanks for reading...

Sooo, Week 6 was really nasty. I had about 7 or 9 huge lumps on my forehead, some with white heads, some just really red. I also had quite a few lumps around my cheeks and chin. Last night, I had to break my promise about not picking... I just couldn't walk around anymore with these angry pimples on my face. I mean one would've been manageable but I had more than 15 in total... I am kind of happy that I extracted all of that stuff from my face though. The bigger ones still have some oil in them, but thankfully that will form into a smaller pimple. I am not worried about scarring because I have never scarred in the past and I have pretty tough skin (on my face). I read a post that said that the person had a couple of small breakouts (like me), but then week 6 was the worst (like me), and then she said it gets better from there... I am really hoping me and her are following the same path.

I go to see my Dermatologist on Thursday, so hopefully she tells me SOMETHING good...

I have a few questions:
What happens if my skin clears up? Do I keep using Tazorac?
What happens if my skin clears up and then it goes back to normal (on tazorac)?

Thanks for reading :)
