Well, for the first time in about 3 years i can finally say, im CLEAR<33 it feels so good! my skin is smooth and the scars are starting to diminish. im almost done on 50 mg and when i finish my dermo is putting me on retin a to keep peeling away my scars. im only going to be doing it every other day so i shouldnt get red or anything but im hoping that it will keep the acne away! thats my biggest fear right now..that it all comes back. but lets hope not! i dont have much else to say exce

not bad, not good either (day 67)

Hey acne.org! Well, like the title everythings sorta so-so. When my dermo popped some a couple weeks ago, that really was the beginning of clearing my forehead. It has gotten much better, its just scars now! I think the worst is over ( thank you Lord) and i'll start seeing more improvement. My cheeks have been the same breakouts since day one! Honestly nothings changed since. :/ Im going to camp soon and i wont be back for a month so i should have HUGE improvements! i cant wait to see

whats going on..? (day 57)

Sorry, i haven't written an entry in like 20 days! Well, theres a lot thats happened. First of all, after my cortisone pill (that didnt work) she started to question what was going on. So, she asked if i was using anything abrasive or harsh. Well, i said i was using a clarisonic. HOLY COW..that didn't make her happy! Apparently that just spreads bacteria and makes it so much worse! Thats why at day 57 im still not even clearing up mildly. :/ Anywho, she said it was a bacterial problem, (that

hangin in there (day 38)

things aren't good..at all. i went in to my dermatologist about a week and a half ago for my monthly checkup and she was not happy. it had gotten worse and she didnt like that so i was prescribed some cortisone pill and aczone topical gel ON TOP OF accutane..uh! i dont get it:( so i was a little bummed, but within a couple of days it started getting better. then, as usual, it stopped working and its right back to the bad stage it was in. i atleast dont have a dry skin beard like i did

I hardly have words to say. i am so discouraged! my acne is just absolutely disgusting and to make things better, i have like a dry skin beard! its flaky and nasty all over.. my friend wanted me to go to the movies tonight and i said no because i just can't go out like this. i could hardly make it through school, i just wanna cry. i get new pimples every day, new blackheads, new pustules, and that gross stuff..NEW EVERY DAY! i dont get it! i guess thats why im discouraged, because

well, accutane is drying me out (6th day)

Hey:) So, i just took my 6th pill! Yesterday, my skin started drying out around my mouth and nose. Today, it only got worse. I apply lotion and it just absorbs it and gets dry again.. Tonight i'm putting aquaphor around my nose to alleviate the itching and pain. I had more whiteheads today, hopefully accutanes pushing them all out. Nothing else besides that. Well, thanks for reading! ♥ Lu

..starting to react to accutane (4th day)

Hello! Well..my lips are dry. and they hurt. and the crazy thing is, yesterday was only my 3rd pill! Whatever, aquaphor is freaking amazing! I applied it in the morning and was good till last class! My face is...well, running the world's oil supply. No help in that yet, but i don't expect it to, its only the 4th day today! I don't know if i'm out of shape (i can't admit it) or if accutane is really making me feel 40 years older. My workout in track today felt 10x worse...yay me.

I have hope! (3rd day)

Hello! I am OFFICIALLY on accutane! Just about 35 days ago I got the best news ever. . .I can start accutane Today is actually my 3rd day and I'm already getting impatient. I have had acne for over 2 years and i can honestly say its ruined my life. It's taken away so much of my confidence and has made me the photographer instead of being in pictures. I have no desire to show my huge red face to all of facebook. I hate acne so much! it's like frikken targets on your face! it sucks, sucks
