im off accutane 5 months now and im still happy with the result of the medication.. my lips are back to normal, my face is not flaky anymore.. not as hell dry as it was.. but my scars are really noticeable mostly on direct sunlight.. i have lots of it, but i think its just fine.. as long as there's no humongous stuff coming out of my face--im fine.. im not sure whats with the small pimples or zits coming out recently.. i sometimes have 2, now i have 5.. im not sure why im still having the
its my 7th month and i have 19 more pills remaining.. im still.. DRY! but its ok.. i think i have gone used to it.. my doctor and i decided to extend one more month of treatment just to make sure that the bad stuff dont stay... (hoping it really wont come back anymore.. ) my face is clear... i havent had a single zit for almost 2 months.. i just have persistent blushing (which is really annoying) i dont know where the blushing is coming from. routine: i wash my face twice daily with
its 5 months already, and i have not suffered an explosion of acne since my first IB... im just scared that once im done with the treatment, they'll all go back and start ruining my face again.. im still on 20mg/day.. dry lips, no nosebleeds..and my period is still normal.. im just plain dry. im using neutrogena oil free wash.. and cetaphil moisturizer.. id usually get 2 dots of pimples during my cycle and thats it.. i couldnt complain more.. what else??? ah yes.. i have mar
i know its been a while since i last updated my blog... but here i am.. just back on track.. ok so now im getting better.. people around me are complimenting on noticeable changes.. like, my face is not really painful anymore.. no puss, no zits, no bumps.. nothing.. the only thing left are scars.. and i still have 3 more months on accutane still on 20mg dose.. and i think its working just fine.. im still dry.. my lips are still chappy.. my doctor is still positive with the result...
this winter season is giving my skin a hard time to heal.. i have to put on moisturizer from time to time... and it pays a lot of help.. the persistent itch has gone and im feeling so much better now.. im off antibiotics 2 weeks ago.. and the infection has subsided already... though sometimes ill be seeing bumps filled with pus and all i have to do is scratch it with gauze then put betadine on it and tomorrow it will gone.. now, im left with scars and just a few bumps.. i wouldnt have to hide my
i should be drying up by now.. unfortunately, my right cheek is a fresh meat! red and shiny and yeah, huge!!! ok,,, so im gonna be mentioning some things not normal for an accutane experience... 1. my progress is really slow.. and- is there a term much worse than breaking out? thats what im experiencing right now.. and yes im still positive about it.. still taking 20mg/day (a very low dose) and my face is really freaking out.. 2. i was on doxy last week, (because of an infection) i di
why would my derm prescribe doxycycline 10mg 2x a day for 5 days during my course if it says in the label that its not recommended? ok i get that antibiotics will kill the infection.. i already took 2 pills... now im scared if the doxycycline interaction with accutane is safe or that im putting myself in great danger..
this is just an update.. i thought that i can resist from updating my progress every other day but here i am writing today's events regarding my accutane battle.. my day started worrying why my face cant handle the itch.. its been like this for a month.. and im so worried... before heading to work, i decided to have my blood tested and just maybe pay a visit to my doctor hoping that shed think of a miracle plan about my condition.. i was thinking that, this is just my break
i dont know but my doctor seemed helpless with my condition.. its not worst though (but still red and breaking out) i noticed that accutane is working in portions... like first it was my forehead, then my left cheek (which hasnt healed yet) now its my right cheek which is so itchy.. yesterday was smooth flowing... i woke up feeling better..seeing my face progressing is just the best news youll ever get. im taking fish oil together with my 20mg and in the morning i take zinc+vit c. ho
i think, im making a habit of updating my progress every other day, that makes me look like im an impatient person.. if youre suffering from acne, and taking accutane, then tell me about PATIENCE.. so, im still itchy but not as itchy as i was 2 days ago.. but im not sure if my face is in the state of progress.. maybe its progressing, but in a very SLOOOOOOOW way. the redness is really frustrating.. its like a gradient of black and red that looks like i have huge patches on my skin.. and la
im so red and still itchy! HEEELP! when will breaking out end??? this is so HORRIBLE! my face is so sore, i dont know know what to do... the doctors dropped me to 20mg/day and my face is still so inflamed.. breakouts are full of puss and its so sore... in one area there seems to have 3 huge pimples and its turning black but still active. most of them appear on my jawline, cheeks and forehead.. or should i say all over my face?? this morning theres this one guy staring at m
hey yey yey! my name is JEI, female, 28 years old, asian and depressed because of acne.. haha! so today is my 38th day on accutane, i used roaccutane,sotret and curacne...all these meds are prescribed by 3 different dermatologists.. first, im on 20mg/day, then after a week they told me to take 40mg/day... then thats when i started breaking out.. after 3weeks on 40mg/day i started noticing my face's getting red.. (or should i say dark red) coz sometimes my skin is turning to black... i wonde
