My name is MoLizzie and I am so excited to finally be on the verge of starting Accutane. I am 23 years old and have suffered from intermittent cystic/nodular and pustule acne for the last 8 years. I have tried an endless array of antibiotic oral and topical medications, oral retinoids and corticosteroids. There have been 'dry spells' where my skin was not that bad, but as of recently it has gotten a lot worse. I have nodular acne on my scalp, neck, jawline, and cheeks. I am seeing my dermatologist to go on accutane this next Friday. Needless to say, I am PUMPED. I know there are side effects, but honestly, having this acne is worse than any dry skin or bloody nose. Once I am done with accutane, I am done with acne (fingers crossed).
If anyone has any advice as I am about to start IPledge this week, and will have another month until I start the medication, please feel free
