day 22

I forgot to add that vaseline is my bestfriend for my lips. They get dry very quickly and I put it on as often as possible. Its a lot cheaper than aquaphor and works just as good if not better.Also day 14 is when I really notice that my oil was pretty much non-existent.

day 22

Since the last time I blogged a couple of things have changed. I started to get a rash on my right arm about 2 days ago. The other thing that has changed is that my pores are starting to purge where they haven't in a very long time. On my cheeks right under my eyes I have always had large clogged pores, but even if I tried to manually unclog that area, it was way too sensitive to even try because of the inflammation from all the oil. It hasn't even been a month and I ABSOLUTELY LOVE LOVE LOVE AC

Day 9

So it's been a week since my last post and some things have changed. I can tell that my lips have dried a little. After about day 3 my face felt really oily but nastier than usual. I guess my face was starting to purge and push oil to the surface. My face is still oily, maybe a slight decrease but not really. I am starting to have the initial breakout. On my left cheek I have 4 cysts. One HUGE one on my chin with 2 other small ones, and on my right cheek I have 2 on my cheekbone. I can

Day 3

I can tell that my face is starting to dry out a little, not much. My makeup just isn't going on as good. I'm still really oily though. Really hoping to see the oil decrease soon.

Day 1 and 2

Today is my 2nd day on Accutane. I'm 5'3" and weigh 100 lbs. I will be taking accutane for 6 months with 40 mg per day. I take one pill with milk in the morning. So far no side effects or changes so time will only tell. For those of you who do not have insurance I can provide you a little information on the monthly costs. It costs about $95 per doctor visit, $264/month for accutane, $9 for birth control and $85 for monthly lab fees. Roughly I'm paying $450 out of pocket per month!!! I hope one c

Introduction to myself

Let me introduce myself. My name is Amanda and I live in central Texas. I have been dealing with acne since the 5th grade(10yrs old). I began getting little bumps on my nose and redness around my nostril area. This continued into the 6th grade and in the 7th grade is when I really began getting pimples. This is also when the oiliness arrived. Since then I have never truly had a clear face. In the 10th grade I began seeing a dermatologist after begging my mom to let me. I was prescribed numerous
