Hey guys. It has been alittle while. My mom had a rough week and work is crazy right now. I missed this site! I am having some new actives errupting right now. I'm down right now. I am on DAY 28. Going to get bloodwork in the morning and then from there to my mom's chemo. Another busy day. I get so nervous about the blood work. I'm so scared of needles and also makes me nervous they'll find something that will make me stop taking the accutane. I feel like I'm thru this initial scary side effects
Hey Girls, I'm back and so glad to say I'm 3weeks down today!!!!!!! Yeah! So pretty much feeling normal excluding super DRY LIPS & FACE! My black heads are so noticeable. I would never do it but I wonder what a Biore' nose strip would do. I just want to see them fall out and go away forever. They actually look like dirty nasty dots all over. There's more and more everyday, yuck! I'm getting eraser size cyst right now. I have 3 painful ones. But thats pretty much it. IB hasn't been that bad.
DAY 16- Felt pretty good. My lips are getting this weird waxy feeling to them. When I'm eating I almost feel like the food is sticking to my lips. I always have the napkin over my mouth just in case, haha!
I'm so excited to say I will be taking my 14th pill! Half way done with my first month already! This process is definitely been alittle gueling but I think I'm getting use to the drug. Yesterday was the first time I didn't feel like I was on SOMETHING. Does that make since. I'm hyper sensitive to every change. It's because we expect it and are waiting for it to happen to us. Yesterday my ears started peeling...gross, lol. My scalp has really been ok so far. I still get little redness and splotch
So it's early here and I'm getting ready to leave for work. Trying to decide if I'm gonna try to put makeup on or not. It has to last about 13hrs, lol. I think I can manage to get in on ok but the problem is all the flakes reappearing in an hour. I use the cetaphil cream and then a primer... I don't know what else to do. Woke up with 3 nasty swollen whiteheads. I think I'm starting the IB and I hope it goes by fast. I started with a cyst on my cheek. It has started flaking but hasn't changed muc
Day 8: Just took my 8th pill and wondering if the side effect kinda taper off as you get use to the medicine or once you have side effects do you keep them throughout your course? Some people sound like the initial dryness gets easier and tapers off alittle. Were others develope escema and other rashes. Right now I just mosturize with cetaphil cream all over in the morning. Would it help me to just rinse my face with water in the morning and apply more moisturizer? I'm still having the waxy oily
http://static.acne.org/ipb_uploads/emoticons/default_redface.gif' alt=':redface:'> So today is day 7! I'm one week down already! My face still looks like I've been bitch slapped about 10 times lol. My face was peeling on forehead and chin pretty good. The skin is really thin. You can almost rub it off. I still look really oily though. Weird to be oily and dry at the same time. Worked out hard and it went good. No joint pain. Just red faced. Hope it subsides alittle http://static.acne.org/ip
So today I wake up and before I even role out of bed I feel my skin is different. Felt so dry but so dang oily. I know that doesn't make since. It's the only way I know how to describe it. I looked in the mirror and I looked greasy! I was so red. Like I was wearing a mask. I expected I would get the hyper pigmented skin but not this soon. I gotta be honest, I'm really nervous about this. If I'm only 6days in and I look like this than what's it gonna be like in 2weeks. I actually feel like I can
Okay, so I can tell something is a happening. I'm kinda red and blotchy all over my face today. I did the crazy Black Friday shopping with my bestie and had alot of fun today. I think the combination of the cold and the accutane is starting to cause some cracking around my nose. I have been using the cetaphil lotion all over and cream around my nose. I think I'm gonna switch to cream for now on. I wore makeup today because I was out and about and the redness makes me alittle self-concious. I thi
Okay, so I'm happy to report I didn't grow a 3rd arm and so far it's been alright. My face is really oily. Getting some whiteheads but nothing to major. I know everyone says this (AND MEANS IT!) but I really hope I am one of the lucky ones who doesn't get a bad Initial Breakout. I know it's so unlikely but man that would be a nice break. I could use some good luck. So as far as side effects I don't have much. My lips are always dry and my face is still super shiney. Scalp has been slightly itchy
Here goes...I work for the beauty industry, no pressure right I've always had the occassional breakouts. Was able to keep it under control most of the time. Until the last year or so. I found my dad, my mom has been diagnosed w/ advanced Breat Cancer, and my hormones have went crazy. Maybe it's stress. Not sure. Started off getting cyst on my face that would stay forever. I have one now that has been there for 3months! Then back started to breakout even worse. Started getting acne all over my
