Day 4

Hey! I know I should have started this ages ago, but I've decided to blog about my isotretinoin journey and help others learn more about the medication. I'm 18 years old, and I've had acne for about 5 years, but its become really severe over the last 2 years, due to VCE stress, starting university, travelling and more. Before starting isotretinoin, I was on doxycycline and Differin for about 3-4 months, but it didn't really do anything. I went to the dermatologist about a week ago and she prescribed 20mg of isotretinoin every day for 6 months. Today is my 4th day on isotretinoin and so far I've had quite a few new pimples but not much else. I'm super pumped and can't wait to have clear, acne-free skin so I guess that'll keep me motivated throughout! Feel free to comment and ask any questions!
