Sorry I haven't posted, nothing has been happening lol! So far, only side effects are dry lips. The acne on my forehead has cleared up a bit :)

yeah, it's completely normal. I just started but usually for the first month or two it's terrible and than close to month three it starts to improve. You have to stay patient.

thanks!

You're doing fine! Everyone reacts to the medication differently, you can get the dreaded "IB" earlier or later, only once, twice, three times, or not at all.

 

I got mine early too, it goes away in about 1-3 weeks. Just keep your skin clean, all this means is that the oil is being pushed up to the surface as a result of the treatment.

 

I won't lie, I've gotten a few scars since I started my treatment in late January. I'm hopeful they will minimze more by the time I'm done. Just drink a lot of water, keep moisterized and hope for the best. Don't let red marks bum you out either, they go away.

 

For lips I use burt's bees chapstick. It's been great to me for the last three months.

thanks :D x
