Well the pimple lasted all of one day....at the end of the day yesterday I took a shower after being at the pool and it was pretty much almost popping on its own. Today its a tiny pink scab, so I think in another few days the mark will be gone. That was pretty fast. I am hoping not to see anymore anytime soon. I still get occasional clogged pores, like maybe 1-2 a week, but they are really small. I suppose even Accutane can't prevent every single clogged pore. Moisturizers and sunscreen and other dust and sweat and crap probably just do that as part of normal skin functioning. My husband gets quite a few clogged pores all the time, but could care less about them. He also only washes his face in his morning shower and rarely ever gets a pimple. I've never even seen him use any kind of acne treatment/cream.
I am looking at a 8 month course because of my low dose, so around the 21st of this month I will be looking at 5 months left. I know, that sounds like a ton of time, but my only side effect is chapped lips. I am happy it will be that much longer. I would like my skin to get a little more drier and to be sure my sebaceous glands have had plenty of time to shrink as I slowly get to the cumulative dose. Also...I am a little nervous to stop for fear of the oil etc. coming back.
By digital prescription do you mean they send it to the pharmacy electronically? Do you normally take a paper yourself? I haven't had a paper prescription in a long time and the electronic is super fast. I literally walk out of the office and the pharmacy texts me to tell me they received my prescription. Last time I answered my ipledge questions on my phone in the car and then picked up my prescription 15 mins after my apt.
