6 Months Post Accutane

My skins still clear! Accutane is still working for me. I was really worried that I would break out after my accutane treatment but my skin has, if anything, gotten better. I'm really happy with it. Anyone taking accutane, KEEP WITH IT. There is a light at the end of the tunnel. I know it sucks having acne, my acne was terrible and totally screwed my life for 5 years, but it seems that accutane has cleared it, and I'm sure it will for you.

9 days post accutane

I've been don for over a week, and unfortunately, I can see my skin breaking out again. Im only getting small zits, and they really dont look that bad, hardly noticable but still it sucks breaking out so early after getting off. A week ago I had my last accutane dermatologist appointment and he said a second course ould definately be an option if I felt I needed it, so hopefully I can get on it again laer this summer. All in all, I'm really happy I did it. I dont think my skin will ever be

day 146

I think today is 126? I only have 7 pills left. My skin is looking good, the red marks have healed almost completely. I still get small zits, but they usually disappear after an hour or two. Haven't gotten a cyst since february. This feels awesome. I really can't describe the way I've changed. My confidence is so much higher. If your thinking of taking accutane, go for it. Everyone is different but here are some things I've learned. If your a guy, I wouldn't shave right before you hav

day 108

Im not even sure if people are reading this haha but if you are then I'm sorry i havent posted in a while. My skins been looking good, i've barely been breaking out at all and my post acne finally looks pretty much gone. I'm really loving accutane right now. Side effects arent too bad. my lips are still dry, but its not to bad. The only thing that really bothers me is how easily my face flushes. It gets red easily and looks bad, so I'm trying to stay out of the sun. Overall, things are

day 83

My skins looking pretty good. Still not great but im felling good about it for the first time in months. I still break out a little but not to bad, and the post acne red marks are finally healing and look so much better. My side effects are the same, dry lips, kind of dry skin. my hands get really dry and crack, which sucks. But overall not to bad. The only real problem I have right now is shaving. My beard grows fast, I have to shave every two or three days. But my skisn really sensit

day 68

Ok so I think this is day 68 on accutane. Last friday I went to get my monthly check up. The doctor didnt really say anything just said that hes going to keep me at only 30 mgs, which is fine I guess. My skin is actually looking pretty good. The post acne redmarks are really fading quickly now and I havent broken out in 2 weeks. I have one small white head on my chin, and thats it. I'm really feeling good about my appearance for the first time in over 5 months. I saw a picture of myself fro

day 57

Day 57. It was a little foolish for me to claim my skin was looking so much better because of the proactiv. Initially, my post acne redness did look a lot better, but its kind of reversed itself? Idk. But it does look a little better and I can tell its healing. My skin is looking ok. Still have the redmarks, and I'm still breaking out on about a weekly basis, but the breakouts are really mild. On a positive note, the blackheads on my face are nearly gone. Its amazing seeing my nose nto infe

day 45

I cant believe this is day 45. Anyways my skin is looking alot better. A week ago I was so fed up with my post acne marks that I put a ton of proactiv repairing lotion on my spots. I did this for a few days, and at first it made my skin look so much worse, but i had school off and just stayed in the house. As i was saying it made my post acne look a lot worse, but after a few days my skin dried up and started peeling, revealing fresh skin under these spots. My skins still kind of bad but its ten

day 34

Things are going about the same. I got one new zit this week. It was pretty big but it came to a head and drained in two days. Now its just another red mark. My blackheads are decreasing, and I'm looking forwared to seeing more progress. My face looks pretty bad right now. I don't have any actives now though, which is encouraging. Its just these red marks. They're everywhere and they don't seem to be fading. And it sucks because I know that it will realisticly be a few more months before th

day 31

I don't want to jinx myself, but i feel like i've turned the corner on this. I haven't gotten a new zit in over a week. I dont think ive been able to say that for 6 years lol. My nose has always been absolutely infested with blackheads, but there starting to disappear. My back is 100% clear, too. I had my one month checkup the other day. My doc says to up the dosage to 40 mgs a day, which is fine with me. My side effects are getting a little worse. I just had a bad nose bleed earlier.

Day 25

I think its day 25. Anyways that bad breakout I had earlier in the week is pretty much gone now and my skin looks pretty decent. My post acne marks are definately still noticeable but have improved a lot. My face is covered in tons of tiny black heads. They don't really bother me, its kind of cool seeing the accutane pushing everything out. Side effects are pretty much the same. Dry lips, kind of dry skin. My lower back hurts sometimes but its not really a big deal. My one month chec

week 3

So today marks week three. Symptoms are pretty minor, my skin is kind of dry and my lips are pretty chapped but its all under control. My skin is breaking out right now, I have three smaller pimples on my left temple and a massive cyst just sprung up on my right cheek. Thats pretty much it. On the positive side my red marks are pretty much gone now. For anyone who is using dans bp on their face, I think that using that stuff actually prolongs red marks because ever since I've stopped using

day 12

Skins been breaking out, I have a big zit on my right cheek, a few smaller ones on my left. I got really impatient earlier and popped some of them, then I tried exfoliating to help reduce red marks. That was really stupid of me. The zits I popped look worse, and the exfoliating only made my post acne marks look worse as well. Needless to say I'm looking pretty bad right now lol. School should be fun tomorrow.. Symptoms are minimal. Lips and skin are sort of dry. Not bad though. Thats about

Day 8

My face is looking a little better today. Not so inflamed. Red marks are fading pretty fast. It looks like the blackheads which have infested my nose for years are going/gone. I had a nosebleed today, idk if its accutane related or not but either way it wasn't a big deal. My skins clearly less oily than it was even yesterday. And my lips are so chapped and dry. Kind of sucks but aquaphor has really helped. Overall, I'm feeling pretty good. Mentally, I'm not the best but I don't blame

1 week

1 week down! My face is still incredibly oily. It sucks I'd rather be dealing with dry akin but I guess thats still to come. My face is looking bad. I don't have that many actives but I still have those damn red marks from old breakouts. But it's all good theyre healing up. My back has been breaking out much worse than t ever was. My derm gave me a short prescription of prednisone, some antibiotic (can't remember name) and told me to take only 30 MG a day for the next two weeks. Im not happ

Day 5

My skin is a lot less oily today. I've probably gotten 15 new pimples in the last few days, but they're gone over night. Right now I have like 4 small actives and one dying cyst. Not to bad. But honestly I must be going through an ib right, I've had so many zits popping up and leaving as fast as they came. If this is an ib tho it's really not to bad. I've had worse. Yesterday I was outside for like 2 hours and my skin got so red and irritated. I guess it was wind burn. I washed with cetaph

day 2

Hi everyone. I'm a 17 yr old highschool junior taking 60 mg of amnesteem(accutane) a day. I decided to make this blog because reading other users blogs really has given me confidence to get started. A quick history of my war with acne..i've had moderate acne since i was 12.. It ws never awful but always pretty bad and really bothered me. I didn't go to a dermatologist untill i was 16 because i was embarresed to tell my parents. I've been on retin a, epiduo, duac, glycolic acid, amoxicillian, min
