3 weeks and counting

Well I have to say this is the best decision I have EVER made! My skin has improved soooo mich all the cysts and redness has gone and I only have a couple of pimples left. Seriously when I went through the intial breakout I felt so upset because it was hideous and like many of you I just wanted to stay in bed and hide from the world! Anyway thigs are so much better now and I am starting to feel confident again! No real other side affects apart from really dry lips and slightly dry skin o

Day 12

Well still loads of spots and still loads of flaking............... Actually saw the Derm today and got put on Predsinone (cant spell it) thank god the pain and inflamation was getting too much! I have been sitting with ice on my chin for days now and the pain was incredible. Anyway just really glad he actually prescribed me something rather than sent me hope telling me what did I expect! No change really just more and more spots. Funny thing is although I am dry I am also oily again on

Day 35

Sorry guys I have been a bit quiet I work for Nike in Football and well of course we are so busy with World Cup mania!!!!! Anyway - how are things..........they are good. Went to my follow up Derm appointment and had my bloods done which were all good and because he was happy with the results so far on 40mg he decided to keep me on that dose which I am happy about as the only really bad side affects are my lips and some dry skin on my arms - nothing else. All the nasty cysts have gone but

Day 1

Well here we go, Day 1 of the Roaccutane! Little bit of history so far.......... I am 35 and have suffered with Acne for around the last 10 years but mine got worse when I got divorced when I was 30 I think the stress triggered it all off. Have taken everything: Differin Cream Minocycline Tablets Doxycycline Tablets Oxytetracycline Tablets Acid Peels N Lite Therapy IPL Laser Therapy Various creams/lotions and potions. Anyway I am a Brit living in Amsterdam with

Day 4

OMG have the worst IB ever - didn't realise this would happen so quickly. I have really big lumps around my jaw line and chin - they are really bad and hurt like you wouldn't believe! Have some flaking but not a lot this is particularly happening around the older spots. Head is starting to itch a bit and become sore but have the T Gel at the ready for when it gets worse. My face is really sore and swollen and god knows how I am going to get my foundation on for work but I guess will just

Day 6

Well the flaking is here and my face is dry and tight! So the dilemma was what to do with my face for work....so decided to brave it and just use some bare minerals powder conceler and blush. I must admit I felt a bit naked but it took some of the redness down on the spots and now my skin has started to flake it looked better than using a heavy liquid foundation. My skin is quite sore as I have a lot of cysts from the breakout but am determined to leave them alone and not touch my fac

Day 15

Whooo the cysts are almost gone and the redness has gone way down thanks to the Predsione (or whatever its called). Anyway still some flakiness but nothing too scary and lips are still dry as hell. Had to buy some special PH balancing intimate wash for down there ridiculous the amount of lotions and potions I now have for this. I really have to say that Aloe Vera Gel 100% that someone recommended for me to use at night is fab - really takes down the redness and is meant to be good for scars!

Day 3

Well nothing much hapening to be honest, just a slight tingly itchy feeling on lips and face and some warmth but nothing else. Have major spots at the moment aswell and they are really angry and sore. Am waiting for something to happen it's hillarious as I am dreaming about flaky skin aswell My parents are over at the moment visiting and we all went out for dinner last night and I feel like an animal in the zoo with everyone asking 'anything happening yet?' like they expect me to suddenl

Day 5

Well the IB was so bad last night I ended up taking pain killers, the throbbing and hotness was unbearable - anyway I ended up sleeping with a wet flannel around my chin to ease the pain. Anyway woke up this morning to find it not so sore and decided that BOLLOCKS to it and am not going to wear make up and just sun screen and go for a bike ride as it was nice and warm. Feel better without wearing that hideous mask as it's quite dry around the spots and therefore, ends up looking worse with

Day 9

Well after having kinda a rubbish day yesterday I am feeling happier today! Went to bed last night feeling miserable and had a really bad headache! Thank god it's Friday and I have a relaxing non-eventful weekend so I can just rest my face and relax! Things are definately druing up it is amazing how quickly things change. I am drier and a lot of the horrid spots that came up are going down and drying out. I am desperately trying to leave my skin alone and not pick so as we speak b
