3-4 Months Post Accutane. I Got Worse!

Haven't been here since September. Well in September after finishing those last couple of pills I had, I was debating whether to stop the course. Reasons being: My hair was falling, making me more bald The dermatologist was a quack, I'd be in there for 5 mins max and that was it. Accutane and a visit to dermatologist is pretty costly. My mum said she really didn't notice any difference in my skin. ​Well from here it may get pretty long. I really need a place to vent because

I shrank!!! :S

I haven't updated in a while huh? Last week i kept forgetting to take accutane. I haven't noticed any changes besides having a few tiny buttons here and there but you can't really see them. My hair still looks like it's thinning out though. So Saturday when I had went out with friends that I haven't seen in 3 months, they told me that I got shorter!!! This is a bit depressing since I'm already short; just a tiny bit under 5 ft. I already don't like my height so getting shorter and lo

day 78

I don't really see any difference in my skin now....so haven't really felt the need to post anything. The only thing is the skin on my upper back and neck feels irritated for some unknown reason and my face looks all flushed and sunburnt :S

Thinking about quitting accutane

So I've been considering to quit taking accutane because I'm concerned about my thin hair thinning out even more. I've been searching online to see if there's anything I can do about it but there's really not much I can do. I can't really do much of a come over because the parts are getting thinner. I really don't want my hair to become like my mother's in the next couple of months. While trying to find solutions and reading stories from other people who suffer from hair loss I can't help but th

Day 66? :(

So I've noticed that my hair has thinned out even more and my scalp seems to be more visible than it already is. The ends of my hair needs to be trimmed but I'm afraid of going to the hairdresser because no matter which hairdresser I go to they always tend to cut my hair really badly. I'm afraid they'll make it extra short and make my baldness show even more. It's really depressing. I can't really do anything about my hair growing back full because my dermatologist said most of my hair loss was

Day 56 - 57

So I spent about half an hour staring down my face a while ago. *sighs* What do I see? My face seems to look more red at the cheeks, I've got this tiny white head just right under my eye and I don't know if it's just me but my pitted scars seems to look worse. Were they ever that bad? It's pretty depressing. Just wondering...has anyone gotten more depressed or pitted scars while on accutane? (However you choose to call them) The red marks that I thought had lightened up seems to have gotten

Day 49

How are you guys doing? I haven't updated in a while. Well my 'backne' has totally cleared up I've got some tiny bumps on my forehead and temples now. blehh Whoever said what you eat doesn't affect acne is totally wrong. Some of my red spots have faded a bit nothing drastic, others are taking extremely long. That Danchris Fade Lotion is taking forever to work. It doesn't work too well on old marks The spots that have faded and turn brown looks like freckles and liver spots now but atlea

Day 39

I couldn't sleep so i decided to do a new entry. Well bad news is that I forgot to go get a refill on accutane today since I took the last pill last night. So no accutane for 3 days because the stupid pharmaceutical company doesn't open on Saturdays. *sighs* I've been getting alot of these tiny, stubborn little zits. You can barely see them so I'm not complaining because hey that's better than those big read cysts that leave you with a lovely red mark. When I wash my face I feel a couple o

Day 37

Hello to whoever is reading this What shall I report today? Most of the blackheads from my nose seem to have disappeared. Yay My backne has being doing pretty good except for those two huge zits that appeared. Blehh. But that was partly my fault for not eating healthy last week. Now when I wash my face with the Cetaphil gentle cleanser I can feel a whole lot of these grainy, tiny, bulb like things falling off but it still has that sticky and shiny feel to it after I've finished washed

Day 33

Hello there, I don't know who has been reading my entries but to those of you that do, thank you very much. Hmm..what's there to report? Well I got 5 cysts in total now. 3 of which I believe are from me taking a chance with a slice of pizza and a small portion of fries a couple of days ago. Yes I know, very bad decision. I regret it because those red marks from the cysts stick out alot. Face is still dry, it's not as shiny as before but still a bit shiny. Lips are still dry and I've been d

Day 29 w/pics

Sorry this might be long today. Nothing much to report today besides lips cracking really badly. I've got to stop resting my face on my hand. Grrr Well since being on accutane, I've been staring at my face really closely and have come to the conclusion: "Ok this is what my skin's going to be like, don't take it on too much and keep your head up. These scars and marks will take time to heal." But then you start back questioning yourself "How long again do I have to wait? I've been suffering

1 month. WOOHOO :)

YAYYY 1 month down!!! Hmm...what's there to say about my skin today? ♬ These blackheads keep sticking out even more. Oh no! oh no! ♬ Lol Well I'm not really sure if my backne has cleared yet since I can't see my back clearly and haven't asked my mum to check. A few days ago by back felt smooth when I washed it. Then the next day, I felt these fine tiny buttons (I suppose) or are they blackheads? Yesterday my mum looked at me and said "Your face looks like it has gotten a bi

Day 25

Face is still dry, sticky like the back of a post it and shining like there's a layer of oil covering my face. I've been feeling pretty sleepy lately especially after lunch till around 6 pm. Since my skin is dry and feeling really thin, no elasticity at all, I think I'll start washing my face with cleanser only at night and washing with only water when I wake up. I really don't like how moisturisers leave a thin shiny film on your face though. I can feel the blackheads on my nose raising and som

Day 24

All I can say is dry. My hair and scalp has gotten dry; and my scalp is sometimes itchy. Eyes, nostrils, skin and lips are dry too. My skin still has that dry, sticky, shiny look/feel. Weird thing is my skin has some areas where it burns and certain times during the day and night, it itches. Moisturiser only helps a bit but it burns in some areas when I apply the moisturiser . I've got to remember to stop touching my face and eating dairy products. *sighs* My lips are drying and cracking

Accutane Day 23

My skins seems to not be producing oil any more. It feels a bit dry but it hasn't flaked out as yet. However, I don't know the reason why my skin looks shiny as though I've been sweating which I've not been. My skin feels itchy now and especially that red zit with the white head. What is the initial breakout suppose to look like? I haven't broken out seriously as yet. I just have about 5 - 10 pimples; some of which are in places never or hardly get pimples...Like near the hair line by my

ACCUTANE HELP!

Not sure how this thing actually works but here I go. Well I've been suffering from acne since I was about 11-12 years old. I've tried countless topical treatments, some of them worked at only treating them temporarily. I had also tried Proactive but that left me with lots of scars and did not help at clearing my skin at all. I'm now 18 years old (female) and have acne on my back and mainly cheeks. So I finally got an appointment with a dermatologist. Apparently he said that I have sev
