Claravis 2 month

April 2,2010 So its my second month on Claravas and im seeing alot of changes in my face. I went back to my doctor for the second month and he put me on 2 30mg take two pills once a day he warned me Im gonna be a little more dryer and yes he wasnt lying Its April 10,2010 so Ive been on my 60 mg for ten days I do feel dryer so I bought some coco butter for my body and Dove moisturizer as a new body wash cause its not my face thats dry its my body my lips dont feel as dry cause Im using the same regimen for them and they are not chapped at all I also use my tooth brush to brush my lips gently to smooth out any dry spots( if any) and it works fine... Im so missing waxing my eyebrows knowing i cant do that cause my skin will rip off LOL!!! but plucking will have to do for now... OH and im not drinking too which is not bad at all i still can have fun!!! but its hard to actually tell friends why u are not drinking but i actually told most of them why im not and they are cool with it:) my joints hurt sometimes and my neck feels like i have a sunburn i think cause its dry so im gonna try the coco butter see if it works...mmm what else??? Oh I dont break out as much if i do its very tiny they last for about 1-2 days then gone!! i still put on make-up cause i can see my small scars which are still kinda red but they are fading .. If you have experienced the "sunburn feel " please let me know if you have any remedies or ideas for me... THANKS OH forgot and im gettin more thirsty Im craving water now mmmm water

Claravis 3-4 weeks

So Im on Claravis 3-4 weeks now... and Im starting to see results I was like wow soo soon.. My skin is getting dry sometimes (shedding a little) I am using Cetephl Hydrating lotion at night after i was my face and in the morning with Aveeno 70 spf for the face and it was less dry which was good. I can see how my cystic acne is (shrinking) on some parts of my face. I have it really bad on my cheeks and my chin area my right side is showing good results so far!!! my left side is my stubborn side which is showing results but Im still breaking out on that side BUT my acne is smaller when they develope and they only stay for about 2-3 days then shrink:) My lips are pretty dry so I use the Lypsol balm in the day and at night i leave on the Dr Dans Corti Balm so my lips would'nt be so cracked in the morning... and I love it so much it works but please make sure if you have a significant other please warn them not to kiss you cause the balm taste is not so good... Oh and my joints hurt a little not to much my nose is dry in the inside but it doesnt bother me. Regimen: Cetaphil Gentle face wash Cetaphil Ultra hydrating Lotion Aveeno 70 spf sunblock for the face Lypsol Lip balm ( I love it) it really works for me in the day Dr Dans Corti Balm ( this is an awsome balm) I use over night so I wont get chapped lips waking up:) dont lick your lips whatever u do it taste gross but an awsome product!!!

Claravis 1-2 weeks

I went to my dermatologist on March 2010 So I started the Ipledge on March 2,2010 after all the testing everything comming out fine My doctor has prescribed my first batch of Claravis 30mg As I looked at the book I thought WOW!! they really mean business with this!! answering questions taking pregnancy tests and answering questions before you get your prescriptions just to get a clear face.... the first 2 1/2 weeks I was breaking out like crazy hiding myself in hoodies at work like as if I had a contagious virus... not going out at all trying to avoid meeting up with friends just so no one would see how my face was reacting to the medication. I did research on the first 2-3 weeks and I saw that other people had the same reaction.. So I didnt feel so bad I knew it only gets worse before it gets better Regimen: Cetaphil Gentle face wash Cetaphil Ultra hydrating Lotion Aveeno 70 spf sunblock for the face Lypsol Lip balm ( I love it) it really works for me in the day Dr Dans Corti Balm ( this is an awsome balm) I use over night so I wont get chapped lips waking up:) dont lick your lips whatever u do it taste gross but an awsome product!!!

Claravis

Hello everyone:) mmm what can i say first?? Im 29 years old female and ive been living with acne since I was 21. at first when i started getting I though that i might have it for a while and itll go away soon BOY WAS I WRONG!!!! the more years went by it got worse! I developed Cystic Acne I tried everything from the store bought products to infomercial products to herbal remedies. Nothing worked I thought i was just gonna have to get used to living like this and just try to cover it up as best as I can. As time went by Ipretty much was getting very self conscious always looking in the mirror trying to cover up something i knew i couldnt... I would go places with friends with them taking pictures and me just saying no even though i so wanted to. there were times i didnt even wan to go out because my face looked so bad and i wanted to hide under my sheets and sleep... I had to make a decision and now cause i was wasting my life hiding from this and sure tired of having to wear make-up all the time even just to go outside to throw the trash!! the worst thing is my new boyfriend is a photographer and he's been wanting to take pictures of us and me declining because of my cystic acne was so horrible!!!finally i started coming to this website ACNE.ORG doing research and getting ideas! I did my research and decided to get on Accutane (Claravis) I was so nervous cause the side effects but I needed to take that chance...
