Accutane 8Th Month

Hi, I just started my 8th month on accutane, I was suppose to go till my 7th month but since i'm not 100% clear my derm decided to extend it for another month or two. I am about 80% clear, I thought my breakouts were done, but I just got a big cyst on my cheeck. I'm not sure what I am doing wrong, or what I could be doing better to clear me up once and for all!! Does anyone have any advice for me ?? I don't drink a lot of water, should I be?? Any advice is welcome, thanks

Day 15! Retin A & Clindamycin

hey guys, sorry its been a while, so today is my 15th day on retin a and clindamycin. I honestly feel disgusting I have more acne than I've had in a really long time & my face is constantly oily and greasy looking. I wish i didn't have to go to school and work but that's life. I believe this stuff should start kicking in soon and I don't want to loose hope. However, as of today I am completely, step by step changing my diet. a.) Drink 16 oz. (2 full cups of my water bottle) of water b.) Eat 2 fruits and one vegetable a day c.) Change my pillowcases more frequently (I know this has nothing to do with my diet) lol I really pray that this product allows me the luxury of having clear skin so I can fully start living my life! p.s. sick of acne

Intro, My Journey With Acne Brief & Short (Kind Of... :)

Hi everyone, Where do I begin, I've had acne almost nine years now. Right now I'm almost to a point where acne is ruling my life and I have to get rid of it! I would consider myself to have moderate to moderately-severe acne, although obviously my dermatologist doesn't think so. About two weeks ago, I went to visit him and he wouldn't prescribe me accutane and that just brought my hopes of obtaining it crashing down. He thought my acne wasn't severe enough and that the medication wouldn't affect my face at all. In a way now looking back I'm kind of relieved not to be using accutane, cause I was scared of the side effects, if I want to be honest, but obtaining clear skin is so important to me that I'd risk almost anything for it. I've had my hopes up and been disappointed so many times with over the counter products and antibiotics that I'm going to expect nothing and hopefully be proven wrong. With having no expectations I don't leave myself vulnerable to disappointment (at least that's how I look at it). Although, not gonna lie when i use a product it usually initially makes my face worse and in that stage i'll quit or not use it regularly like I'm supposed to. This time, reading all the reviews about retin a and clindamycin i hear its gonna take a while to see results, that you'll initially have worse breakouts and that once your body gets use to the antibiotic that your acne will come back. Not the greatest of news, but I'm hoping and praying everyday that something will work for me, because being surrounded by people with clear skin just makes me yearn for it. OK, lets jump in to how the products are working for me: ~leaves me skin oily (have to consistently dry my face) ~It's my 3rd day on the products ~haven't seen any noticeable results with my acne p.s. i'll report back soon ttyl
