Here's What I Look Like About A Year After Accutane :)

Things are great! I get maybe 2 or 3 zits every now and then, but nothing as bad as it used to be. I can handle 2 or 3 with the RetinA the dermatologist gave me My face does have acne craters, but that's OK with me...maybe some day I'll save enough money to get that taken care of, I'm just glad to be pain and pimple free. I have a boyfriend! He's amazing we've been together for 6 months now...he told me I should really get back to this forum and post after pics...so that's what I am do

Day 38-Smooth skin!

As I have been washing my face the past couple of days I noticed how much smoother my face has gotten!! How much less painful it is to wash it!! Wow! I love it! I mean I still have very noticable acne, but it's not painful!!!! When I work out it doesn't hurt to wipe the sweat off!! Ahh, such a nice feeling. Most of the painful bumps are pretty much gone I have like 3 actives and some that are just going away...I haven't bleed on my pillow cases in days which is gross to say, but also real

Month 2-Begin

Saw my derm today and picked up my 2nd month of Accutane...they gave my Claravis this time instead of the Amnesteem I had last month. It's fine. The derm told me to use the Cetaphil cream all over my body. He prescribed me Prednisone because I have like 3 really tender ones and are very irritating and he said th Prednisone woud help to bring those down so I will take 5mg/day of Prednisone and still 40mg/day of Claravis. My whole body is so dry! Everytime i take off a jacket or my clothes you

I have finished 4 weeks of Accutane!! I will see my dermatologist on monday to get another 30 days...not sure if he'll change my dosage, but we'll see.

Yesterday I went to the doctor to get xray results on my knee, but I also went back to tell him about a painful little problem my butt was having He chekced me in and out and told me that I probably have a hemroid because he felt some internal abnormality He is sending me to a colonoscop

Two weeks conquered!!

I've made it through two weeks of Accutane I felt really good the other day when I had finished my first Pak of capsules!!! I'm pretty sure I'm in the IB stage of Accutane A really anoying cyst has grown on my left cheek and some on my temples argh!!! It's ok...I'll get over it soon. I just uploaded some photos of my current skin condition, but you probably wont be able to see them until late tomorrow or the weekend because they take a while to get approved. I'll make sure to make a notif

Day9-itchy scalp

So my scalp was extremely itchy today! It was a little itchy the day before yesterday, but today was so itchy!! And I was scratching it...bad idea Gotta stop scratching. I bought Head&Shoulders Dry scalp formula today...I dunno if that'll help, but it's worth a try. Did anyone else have this side-effect? Lips are still very chapped and sticky haha..so weird. Face is looking the same...I honestly wouldn't be able to tell if I had an IB or not because my face looks so bad already -.-!

Nothing much to report except my lips are still very chapped, the inside of my nose is very dry and my lips have developed some sort of sticky film -.-! I don't know what it is, but I have to be constantly wiping my lips haha. I haven't had an IB, yet...my acne is still in the same condition maybe little less redness i've noticed so that's a good thing More info to come as I continue taking Accutane Than

Day 5-Amnesteem(accutane)

Ok so I'm actually taking Amnesteem and NOT Accutane, but it's still Isotretinoin and I'm sure it works just as well So I'm on day five right now. No major side-effects to report except for chapped lips and this morning I woke up at 3am dying of thirst!! Oh man I felt like I has been in the desert or something! I drank a lot of water and I was fine. Yesterday I felt really dizzy and couldn't keep my balance, but I don't know if it was due to the Amnesteem or my nerves because I was perfor

Ladies and Gentelmen...

Today, I took my first dose of Accutane! Let the fight against acne begin ( seriously this time) I hope this works I also went to get my eyebrows waxed one last time today...I was waiting for the cysts on the sides of my forehead to diminish so it wouldn't hurt so much. When I was getting them done of course the asian lady had to say something about my acne Gah! I am so sick of that and honestly am getting really offended. They're not doctors!! They dont' know my history of skin ca

Tminus 1 day!

Starting Accutane in one day! Just washed my face and about ready to sleep. Going back to my apartment tomorrow afternoon...back to the stress. In the 6 days that I have been here at home with my family I've noticed my skin get clearer...i don't know it is due to the lack of stress or the benzaclin or maybe both. I don't know, but I like it. I'll probably update pictures tomorrow because my skin has cleared up from the pictures in my gallery (at least I think so ) Although I have to new cys

Hello everyone Thanksgiving is over, I did the midnight black friday shopping and I still feel full from mom's food! What a great holiday though. I hope everyone has enjoyed it I will be starting Accutane Tuesday I'm so ready for it although mom is still a bit worried. My skin is still in the same condition as in my pictures and the Benzaclin doesn't seem to be working, but I'm still using it I felt more paranoid than ever today for some odd reason...I just felt like the whole worl

Pictures =.=!

Just realized my pictures were approved and are up in my gallery...whoa. Almost wanted to take them down, but I wont. It was quite disheartening. Oh well...patience. I'm finally home for the holidays and so tired, but glad I get time to relax because none of my professors assigned anything over the break Acne is still the same today probably gonna get worse as the week progresses because it is that time of the month for me I've decided to stop using product in my hair before and after s

Pictures o.O

I thought I had uploaded pictures to my gallery and it have been more than 24hours, but I don't see them -.-! Maybe I didn't do it right? Or maybe I need to wait longer for them to get approved...they should get approved...they weren't inappropriate Oh well...I'll keep an eye on it. Good news!!! Called my mom this morning and talked to her for a bit and she was telling me that she was talking to one of my aunts yesterday and apparently one of my counsins is using Accutane!!! He's been o

Minor set back Tminus 7days...

Went to see the dermatologist and came out teary eyed and a bit confused. Apparently I got my pregnancy test too early and I wont be able to start Accutane for another week. Still a bit confused as to why the derm told me after our last visit to get a pregnancy test before today so that I could start Accutane tomorrow...I guess he was a bit confused too. Oh well...ugh! I really wanted to cry when he told me the bad news T_T I guess I'm glad that he's following the iPledge program and that h

Not so itchy

Not so itchy anymore!! Starting Accutane in T minus 2 days!!! Nothing really new to report except that my skin is extra oily today and the red zit in the middle of my forehead seems to have gotten bigger and more red. I can't wait to have a clear face. I can't wait to go out more often and not be so afraid. I'm giving my senior clarinet recital next semester and I'm really hoping that the Accutane will clear up my face at least a little so that I can feel more confident on the stage. I'

Itchy face

My face is extremly itchy!! Due to the Benzaclin more that likely. I'm sitting here trying to stretch my face to relieve the itching (if you can imagine that) -.-! Starting Accutane in T-minus 3 days!!!! It's finally the weekend, I though it'd never come. All that's left is for me to go see the dermatologist Monday morning, go to class Tuesday morning and turn in a paper and get on the road to go home and take that first dose of Accutane! I think I will post pics of my progress on Acc

I can't believe she said that to me.

Hi again, Watching Conan...I don't know why because I don't really think he's that funny, but I think the commercials he was doing to advertise his show were pretty funny so I though I'd tune in. Oh well...I shouldn't be up this late anyway xD So I pretty much had like the worst experience ever (OK, maybe it wasn't that bad...the world is still turning) I was at the store buying my groceries when I passed a little girl and her mother and as I passed the little girl said "Mommy, that gir

Hello everyone I've passed this site a couple of times, but never really spent a lot of time on it. I decided to register and make a blog...I've never had a blog either, but this seems like a good place for ME to have a blog seeing as how I have been a long sufferer of acne. I'm a 22 year old female and in college(I have to leave for class in like 2min hopefully I can finish) I just got done taking a major test that will determine if I can register for my proper ED block courses...stress
