#3468956 Permanent Redness. What Is It? Looking For Advice.

Posted by Harry1993 on 21 January 2015 - 08:40 PM

Thanks so much for the feedback I'm visiting a dermatologist soon but I prefer to know something about my condition when going. @Robertitoo does the Vbeam perfecta treatment go by the same name worldwide?


Looks very similar to my skin, post-accutane. I'll upload a picture but it looks different in the lighting I took the photo in. I'm thinking it could be slight hyper pigmentation, rather than rosacea. Mine in pretty much constantly red too, which isn't from the accutane medication because I finished taking it over 2 months ago. I also have hyper pigmentation marks on my back, do you have it anywhere else or is it just on your face? I'm seeing my dermatologist on the 2nd of February though so I'll be sure to ask about it and get back to you. Also, I noticed under your eye you have some white dots, which could be Milia. (Like I have, as you can see in the picture). 


I also plan to ask about if a chemical peel would do the trick.

Some people don't clear up completely till their 4th/5th month. Just give it time, I'm on week 15 and I'm really starting to notice a huge difference with 2 months left on the drug to go.

What kind of meal do you normally take your accutane with? :)

#3441537 Is Eating Eggs With Accutane Okay?

Posted by Harry1993 on 15 July 2014 - 03:41 PM

I've read a lot of stuff that really contradicts itself about eating eggs while on accutane. I have 3 eggs a day in the morning (scrambled) which is when I take my accutane. (40mg). 


Do you think It'll be fine? I'm currently on day 6. People say something about it rises cholesterol levels but I read that this guy ate 22 eggs a day and his cholesterol was fine. Should I just continue as I am and see what happens when I have my blood test in about 5 weeks? (I eat them because they're tasty, good for protein and natural fat which I read was good to take accutane with).






#3440577 Accutime! 20/m - Accutane Log

Posted by Harry1993 on 10 July 2014 - 08:48 AM

I'm SOOOOOOO excited to finally be making this accutane log, after snooping the forum for many months and reading dozens of progress threads, the time has finally came to start my own journey. I went to see my dermatologist for the 1st time yesterday and I told him I wanted to try accutane after numerous other drugs have failed, he thought it was the best option and took a blood test the same day. Earlier I got my blood results so I can officially start it! (He prescribed it yesterday but told me to wait till today). I heard some people have to wait like a month before starting, talk about awesome dermatologist or what. 


So my starting dosage is 40mg a day for the first 6 weeks, and then he wants to double it. I'll provide pictures throughout the process once my phone is unlocked to really see the transformation. (Hopefully). I've stocked up on moisturisers so here goes, let's hope the odds are in my favour!


If anyone wishes to ask me anything, please feel free.

#3433246 3 Months Into Accutane, Starting To Get Worried

Posted by Harry1993 on 25 May 2014 - 07:12 PM

From what I've read on here, some people say they see dramatic improvements as late as month 4-5. So it might just be a case of having to wait it out.

  • Avoiding having your picture taken like it's the plague...I swear the camera adds 20 zits!


I hate when some people are adamant on taking a picture.. It's like.. DO YOU NOT GET IT?
