Week 2 accutane

I am a 28 year old female with persisent mild to moderate acne. I started breaking out when I was 12, and I am still waiting to "grow out" of it. The severity has decreased over the years, but acne has maintained its hold on me even as I approach my 30s. I have taken every persciption, over-the-counter (and even some home-made concoctions) medication there is. I have been on accutane for 12 days and I am on 20mg twice a day. My acne was never severe enough to warrant accutane, but the persistence and long-term effects have convinced my derm to percribe it to me.....FINALLY! So far, all I have to show is a red face, dry eyes and dry skin. My acne is the same....still waiting for the IB. I feel like my face/ears are flushed/burning. Has anyone else experienced this? Any advice would be much appreciated! Will try to update my accutane experiences regularly. ~Jaine
