#3395439 Letting Go And Living With It

Posted by mbbento on 17 November 2013 - 10:51 PM

I'm never giving up.  In a way, I can respect what you're saying, but I'm not giving up on treating my scars until I'm in the grave.

I'm on day 10 of 10mg/day and think I'm starting to see a minor decrease in the oil (thank god!).  My lips started to get dry a couple of days ago.

Make sure he regularly swabs the inside of his nose with petroleum jelly or some other moisturizer.  Accutane can potentially give you crazy nose bleeds.  Overall though, it's a wonder drug.

Actually, extremely low-dose accutane is a very effective way to control excessively oily skin.  In fact, in countries that aren't infested with trial lawyers like the U.S., variations of this treatment are pretty common.  

 

You can diet and wash with whatever all you want, but that's going to slow down sebaceous glands that are out of control.

I went "doctor shopping" till I found one that would prescribe it to me.
