Starting to have a little breakout- glad something seems to be happening and hope to have an "initial breakout' now and get it over with!
-1 big and 2 small red ones on my chin, unpoppable, swolen and painful.
-3 small red on cheeks where I seemed to have other ones in the past reemerging.
-Old big one on forehead- hard head came out and now it has dried up super fast.
-pores on chest seem becoming visible, not in blackhead form but just darker spots and noticeable (for me up close!)
Lips getting dryer, eyes starting to get dry at night, dryness around nose and a little on forehead.
Small headaches now and then.
Hi, My name is Lola and I started Accutane 2 weeks ago. I am 24 years old and have had mild acne for 10 years that has not responded to anything else. It has gotten particularly worse in the last few years. My main problem is hundreds of white bumpy small cysts on my chin that never come to a head and never disappear. My doctor said this with dry up under the skin and therefore not come out as a breakout which I hope to be true.
So update of the last two weeks:
Acne: Several small red cysts on forehead and cheeks. Several blackheads around hairline/ears. Hundreds of white cysts on chin.
Dosage: 30 mg
Acne: Red cysts on forehead/cheeks no longer red and starting to disappear. Blackheads no longer popable, Chin still the same.
Symptoms: Lips starting to dry, Start to feel texture on nose from blackheads....start to see texture on forehead like it will start getting dry but not quite yet...headaches, more tired, dry scalp. Starting to have tired eyes at night but not blurry or dry.
So I'm just starting to use my face moisturizer. Its a tiny tiny bottle for really expensive prescribed by my doctor so I didn't want to start using it til it was needed.
Notice that the little zits that come are gone by the next morning.
