Week 8

Hi all...so this week I have been breaking out more so than usual...not to impressed becuase I thought it would only be getting better, not worse I am on a high dosage (80mg) a day so I dont know why I would be breaking out still (unless its just not working for me ) That and I am still having problems with this dang rash on my hands...my friends joke I have leprosy ...not cute. I have tried everything and it won't go away I tried jojoba oil mixed in with vasaline and still it continue

Week 7

Hey guys, just thought I'd up date on my progress! Aside from the extreem dryness on my arms and back of my hands everything is going great! Skin is clear, might get one zit every now and then but the black heads apear to be almost all gone!! Very happy about that!! No other symptoms that I can recall other than the dryness. Has anyone else experience a rash on the backs of their hands?? Its almost like a cluster of red spots...even with lotion it still seems to be present. If anyone has any sug

Week 6

Hey all!! So its the begining of week 6 and things are going great !!!! skin is all clear and I feel awesome!! Side effect wise nothing really new, just dry lips (but roc lip repair really helps with that) and that rash is still on the back of my hands (which comes and goes but is treatable with lotion, I prefer shea butter). Oooo and I bought this stuff called Jojoba oil and it is great!!! It is great in baths and I have been mixing a couple drops into my mosurizer at nights and it seems to r

Week 3

Day 19 Hi guys, I decided to switch blogging sites because I wasn't feeling like anyone was reading my blogs ...hoping that there are some people to relate with on this site! Anywho its the middle of week 2...all I can say is so much for the smooth saling...looks like I am experiencing one of thoses dreaded initial breakouts I have been warned about. My skin was soooo beautiful (I even got compliments on how radient it was) but not anymore. I am so tempted to go squeeze but I know if I do it

Week #1

Day 7 So it is the end of week 1! So far so good!!! My skin is almost totally clear! Looking the best it has in a long time!!!! Hoping it will only get better from here on out! I am not super dry yet but I have noticed a little bit of peeling on my forehead when ever I wash my face. Other than that my lips are staying well hydrated with lip chap and I am trying my best to drink as much water as I can. So far so good! Stay tuned! Day 3 Hi all...pretty sure no one is following my journ

Intro -

Hi everyone, I have decided to log my experience on Accutane not only for myself but for others considering taking it in the future. I have read many things about Accutane (both good and bad) but have decided to give it a try because nothing, and i mean nothing has worked for me in the past. I have tried anything from gels to creams to antibiotics and nothing has made a difference. At this point I am 24 and tired of dealing with the constant embarrassment of pimples, I want it gone for good and

End of Week 4

So its the end of week 4 now. Test results were good. Skin looks alright...got a few cysts but other than that it is looking better thats for sure. Have to admit I have been feeling down alot lately...not sure if it has to do with taking Accutane or if its just the weather / time of the month. I am also really really irritable...again I can't be sure it is due to the pills but it is one of the possible side effects. Anyways will keep u updated...if anyones reading..

End of week 3

Hey guys, so its the end of week 3 and it looks like my IB has calmed down now. There are no huge mountains growing on my face anymore (I had to squeeze becuase i couldnt take it) but now I am left with red marks. I have also noticed ALOT of black heads all over....I have been bad and have been squeezing those too, bad I know but i can't help it. Since my IB was so horrifying I decided to go back on my trimethoprim for a little while to try and prevent any more breakouts. My derm said it was oka

Day 23 - week 4

EEEAAAAKKK...random rash on my right hand...consisting of a whole bunch red dots. NOT CUTE! Hoping that goes away asap. Becides that I had a bad nose bleed last night when I was washing my face before bed. Blood was gushing out . I made sure to load my nostrils up with vasilne after it stopped so I hope that doesnt happen often. Not fun. Skin is looking better....terrified its going to break out again but hoping for the best. I have my first appointment with my derm on thursday, getting bloo

Day 20

UGH I am so discouraged. I just spent like 2 hours googling and reading about people's experiences with initial breakouts and how long they last for. Mine is so bad I don't even want to leave the house . I have to work tomorrow and I am debating whether or not to call in sick becuase I am so self conscious. I spent 1 hour applying foundation to try and cover my zits but I still thought about it all day. If anyone is reading and was in the same boat as I am how long did yours last? I'm reading a
