Christ!!!!! I woke up twice last night choking and drowning in my own blood!!!!!!!!!!! Okay, I'm being extremely dramatic . I felt the nosebleeds begin, and I was able to get up before I made a mess I've been slacking on swishing Vaseline in my nostrils before bed. I guess I'll have to start again. My face is doing pretty good. I have 2 maybe 3 in the healing process. I just have a lot of hyperpimentation to get rid of. Lips are still really dry. Sometimes I wake up and I have these tiny
So, I'm going to try and update more frequently.... So, I'm down to 2 monsters on my face. They are side by side. as if their keeping each other company. Jerks. Well, over all, my skin seems to be smoothing out a bit. I feel like my nose is beginning to do that peeling thing again since I've been taking the 40mg twice a day. My lips are still dry. To be expected. And I still haven't had any nosebleeds since week one. I'm starting to have pains in my knees. Not sure if it's the Ac
My 62nd day. I haven't posted in a while. I'm just so scared to post. everytime I think I'm doing well, I feel another pimple come up. I must admit right now, i only have 4 healing pimples on my face. I haven't had a cyst in forever My skin is smooth, besides those 4 monsters. I still have a lot of scaring from before and after Accutane. I try to cover it the best I can with make up. Lips are still dry. But I always have chapstick on me, so that's cool. I haven't had a nosebleed since my v
Hey everybody.... I posted some more pics. So, I went to my derm appointment today. He kept me on my 60mg dose. He says that I should start to see some results soon. Since my IB, I haven't had any more huge red cystic monsters till about 2 days ago. It's just one. I blame it on my monthly. My face has healed a bit since the IB, though you can still see where they are trying to go down. Let's see....the dryness is still the same. I'm ultra dry. Cetaphil moisturizer is a God sent.
Okay, so I posted my awful pictures. Quite embarrasing. So, as of this morning, i give up. I'm cursed with bad skin. I'll keep taking this shitty medicine, and try to update you guys in a month or so. I feel worse after I posted my pics. But no sense in taking them down. At least everyone on here with a zit or two can see what real acne looks like.
What can I say....... I'm not sure if I'm seeing quite a difference. The 4 uglies that are on the left side of my face just won't go away. One of them seems to be trying to come alive again. Can a cyst come back after healing? Ugh!! So, this is weird. When I touch my nose I feel like i have a million tiny pimples on it. It's not noticable at all, (I don't think it is). Same when I strectch the skin on my chin. Is that weird? Has anyone experienced that? My face is still really itchy...
Hello everyone......Not too sure about my progress. Sounds funny, but I'm enjoying the right side of my face much better than the left The right side of my face seems to be a bit smoother, the acne is getting so much smaller! Hopefully it'll disappear. I can't say that for the left side. I still have the cysts from the initial breakout. They are huge. about 4 of them. They don't hurt anymore, and they are no longer red. But they are still visable and quite annoying. I'm an african america
Quick update..... I'm at work right now. I just noticed that I didn't have to blot the oil off my face not one time today. I was kinda excited about this. Seems like my make up is holding on also.... The right side of my face seems to be healing quicker than the left. The acne on the right side is still noticeable, but they are considerably smaller. My left side still has these gigantic, what used to be cysts type bumps. They don't hurt anymore, but are still very noticable and annoyin
Hello everyone. All this rain is killing us. The basement has flooded!!!!! Ugh!!!! Anyway, my face doesn't hurt anymore (still looks awful, though). When I woke up this morning I had the illusion that the dark spots on my face seemed to be getting lighter. But as I look at it now, I don't think so. My horrible break out from Friday seems to be healing up. My lips are not bothering me as much. I guess it's become a habit now to keep applying Blistex. I am very itchy today though My face is
Good Morning. Today I feel horrible. It was very hard to sleep last night. My face hurt so bad that I couldn't lay it on my pillow. I have so many cysts that just came out of no where. As of this morning, they still hurt. It hurts to wash my face! As for the side effects, my lips are still constantly dry. Not unbearable. My skin tends to be extremely dry right after I wash it. I use a little bit of Cetaphil Daily Advance Ultra Hydrating Lotion. I've struggled with extremely oily skin for years.
Well, I started Accutane on Feb 28th. Today is March 12th. By the end of week one, I had a major flare up. A lot of cysts. My face hurts horribly. (Oh, btw, I'm 28, female, african american, lots of active pimples, and lots of blackheads and scaring) Along with the flare ups, I got the expected very dry lips and skin. Last night I had my first nose bleed. Luckily it happened in the shower After the nose bleed last night, I took a cotton swab, swished it in some vaseline and rubbed it in my nost
