8 Months After My Last Update (The End Of My Journey!)

Oh dear! I am so, so glad I have come to this point with a 100% clear skin!!! I am officially DONE guys!!! I'm sorry I haven't updated my blog since February this year. I went through a lot of stuff in my new job and school, guess so far so good I really don't know what to say, it's been such a positive change to have my skin all cleared up that I no longer think about it anymore, I feel good! and people actually don't beleive I had such a severe acne, only those who met me las

5 Months Already...

Geez, I just forgot about the days I used to think about my skin 90% of the time... o.o I really don't think this med can make you feel depressed...I may have been depressed during the first month but I'm sure it wasn't cause of accutane but because of my serious IB... damn I felt like a piece of sh**tt during that time... However, I believe that going through all that gave me an opportunity to better know myself and get to know there were people around who actually didnt care about

Week 17, day 117! omg!!

.... That's pretty much how I feel about my skin now!! ... I'm sorry I havent posted any updates about my course for over a month, I guess I wasnt experiencing any big changes on my skin until now. Skin condition: I've realised that the feared IB is a relatively serious side effect because it can last from 2 weeks up to the very last day of the whole course depending on each case. in my case, I'm still having some few breakouts even after taking this medicine for 4 months, yet my fac

Week 10, day 67

Hello again! I just got back from my first anti-inflammatory facial...it was ok, didn't hurt too much, my face just got a little too red afterwards... Skin condition: Im still getting pimples everywhere, specially on my forehead and the red spots from previous zits don't seem to fade it kinda sucks cause it's hard to tell whether I still have active acne or not. My cheeks, humm...still the same, pimple, pimple, pimple... My derm said I should get another facial in two weeks to accel

Week 8, day 54. Getting sick of my IB >.<

Hello there! This is me again... I'm officially done with my first set of pills: 20mg every other day. Yeah I know it's a very low dose for my severe case of acne but I guess I kinda understand why I am taking such a low dose... Yesterday I got to visit my derm for the second time and she noticed I havent stopped breaking out ever since I started taking isotretinoin. My cheeks, which used to be clear before Isoface, are full of pimples and red spots and my forehead, which was the af

Week 6, day 40

I'm almost done with my first set of pills! Lots of things have happened during these two weeks... My skin has actually cleared up in certain areas of my face, specially around my temples where I constantly had painful horrible cysts... Inflammation has also reduced around my forehead...Im still getting some big pimples here and there and it's kinda weird because they look very small in the morning but they grow bigger throughout the whole day until I accidentally scratch them and boom

First month! o.o

Hey there again! Wow, 1st month on this drug and I remember like yesterday I was so eager to start this treatment... Skin condition: fortunately my skin doesn't look as red as it did last week (my worst week so far)...there are some small areas which are clear by now and it's easy to see the scars left behind Also, my face has dried up a lot, it looks flaky specially around the cysts area...it looks so gross that I feel in need of covering them with micropore tape x.x I think I

Second week on isotretinoin 20mg

Hey there again! So today is my second week on isotretinoin...and yeah! I've taken 6 pills so far... I havent had any dramatic changes on my skin, Ive had some breakouts, nothing serious, so it's hard to tell if it's due to the drug...some pimples around my face, my forehead has cleared up a bit, which is good and my skin is still a bit oily (not the usual oily though)... Side effects?...actually nothing out of the ordinary...however Ive noticed my lips have started to look a bit dr

1St Week On Isotretinoin!

Hello everyone!! I'm glad I found a place where I can share my own experience on isotretinoin... first for all, my name's Juan and Im a 23 year-old guy with severe acne x.x I've suffered from acne since my adolescence and, as many people out there, I have also tried lots of things (diets, topical medications, even homeopathic stuff) but ended up not having any decent results.... My acne has gotten worse for the last 3 months...I started to break out around my temples and it e
