My accutane journey > Nearly 4 Months

Posted 26 March 2014

Still get one or two spots here and there... Cyst from end of feb still apparent..albeit a lot smaller... Will take another month to completely go but will leave a permanent scar... Have a minor few spots at back of neck..otherwise completely clear.. My complexion still not great..not sure what's causing this, probably just lack of sunshine and bad diet!...

My accutane journey > Skin A Little Worse

Posted 11 March 2014

Big cyst on cheek taking ages to go... 2 and half weeks and counting
Got another large spot and 2 minors on jaw
Rest completely clear..
Hoping I won't be getting any spots when this treatment is done
Lips really dry and becoming annoying now as mouth gets really dry too..
Hair is thinning quite a bit - don't know if this is just a coincidence

My accutane journey > First Real Spot In 3 Months

Posted 27 February 2014

I had a lot of stress, alcohol and cheap food over the weekend and this produced a large cyst, the largest I have had on my face in a year... I thought accutane would stop spots like this completely but it seems not. On the other hand the rest of my body is clear. The back of my neck is free, so are my shoulders and only one other minor spot on forehead....

My accutane journey > The Good And The Bad

Posted 24 January 2014

Minuscule breakouts. Virtually clear. Cyst on necks taking ages to go away, don't understand why...
Complexion not great, think my skin is just dehydrated and my diet has been really really bad for the past 2 months. Lips a few shades lighter than they should be and I find myself applying Chapstick 10 times a day.
Overall just so pleased at how easy this...

My accutane journey > Nearly 2 Months

Posted 18 January 2014

I thought stopping using the topical would break me out, but it hasn't. I have only one very minor spot in the past 2 weeks. Skin has been clearing up nicely.
Only one cyst left on neck and few on shoulders...
Still only on 30mg per day. Just unbelievable how well this is working, I really don't expect it to last.
Pushing it to the test now, started back...
