Question For Accutane Users

Hello everyone! I'm on my month 4 of accutane and everything has been going well up until a week ago. My face is back to being really oily.. and I mean even oilier than I remember before going onto acctuane. I also broke out a bit. I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this and could let me know if it goes away. My acne isn't severe, but it's persistent so I am scared that I am building up an immunity to it. Pleaseplease respond. Thank you!

Day 38 I Believe.

Sorry for not updating, I've been working a lot before I go back home for Christmas. I work at a breakfast diner and usually it does work on my face but I havet had any new pimples. The one guy on my chin is just a red patch now. My oil production is definitely lower. The only difference is that the red spots take forever to go away. But If that's the worst thing I have right now them I'm content for sure. I want to wake up Christmas morning and just have no red dots and no pimples. Hope everything is going well for everyone. Xx

Day 33

I have a big ugly guy on my chin. It's closer to the bottom so it's not bothering me too much. I have one in between my upper lip an nose is an awkward spot so it's swollen. Those are the only 2 I had. The rest of my skin is smooth and soft. Last exam tomorrow so I'm excited to just get rest and not stress about anything. Christmas here I come.

Day 25

Updating on phoe again so forgive any mistakes. Skin: it's okay. My cheek pimple appeared over night so naturally I picked the heck out of it and now it is probably going to heal, but scab and leave another red mark. Ahhhh well. I globed on moisturizer last night so some of my red spots are less. My chins so much better (knock on wood). Side effects: dry face and lips. Back pain. Arms are so dry. I put gold bond on last night and it's a bit better. Positive: not many pimples Xo

Day 24

allllo, taking a study break to add a post. skin: I actually have no pimples right now. maybe one little guy on my cheek, but no big ones!! hurrrrrrray. I do however have a lot of red spots that I can't get rid of.. Does ANYONE have any advice on how to get rid of them quicker/what I can put on them overnight to decrease them or anything? side effects: just the back pain and dryness of the face and lips still. I put hydro cortisone cream on to try and get rid of the red marks and ended up just getting rad face... fail. positives: no big ugly pimples I'm going soon to get my blood work done then I get my new pack. time flies.

Day 22

hey! I am a fail on the posting situation. skin: chin still has little guys on it. I think it's just more red spots and they are just healing. I went out drinking on Thursday and got a mini pimple on my cheek.. serves me right, haha. side effects: I get the worst back pain. in my lower back. It happens a lot at night and when I do things at work for a while. Sore. As. Eff. positives: my face isn't as dry anymore. My lips are still really dry, but I just keep lip chap on hand. Also, my oil production is almost non existent. Yay! Going for blood tests soon. I hope nothing is wrong with it so I can renew my script. xo

Day 19

Updating on my phone! Skin: not much different. I got a new pimple on my chin, but they go away pretty quickly so it's not that bad. Other than that the dryness is going away so that's good too! Can't believe I'm almost done my second pack. Time flies. Excited to wake up tomorrow and see more improvements. Fingers crossed. Good night!

Day 16, 17, 18

Hiiiiii Sorry I haven't been updating! I'm in University and barely have time for homework let alone updating skin:a lot better actually. still really dry around my chin, but that is where my pimples are forming so there's definitely some kind of correlation there. My forehead and cheeks are pretty clear, it's just my chin. side effects: my lips are still chapped. my skin is dry on my chin so badly. I load up the moisturizer before bed and during the day, so hopefully once all the pimples go it will stop being so dry. My back hurts at night sometimes, like it feels like I can't stretch it out all the way or something. positives: my boyfriend said my face is so much clearer, and I agree. I'm glad that he noticed! He was hesitant about me going on it to begin with. I feel better today! yayyyy!

Day 14 - Recap Of 2 Weeks

Hello my fellow acne friends, I've read a lot of blogs on people's journey through accutane, so I thought I would share mine because it may help someone else. I have mild-moderate persistent acne. I by no means have severe acne and I never get cysts. I have tried numerous topical creams and oral pills. I was on Diane-35 for a year and a half and it worked well up until a couple months ago when my skin broke out and hasn't been the same since. Acne: So I'm on day 14 today and I'm definitely in the middle of by IB.Kinda sucks. A girl in my class commented that my skin was a lot worse than when I started accutane. Hopefully this is the worst of it and it will just get better from here on out! Symptoms: As for symptoms, my face was soooooooooo dry the other day. Soo dry. It's better now. I glob on the moisturizer before bed though. Lips are chapped, but not splitting or anything like that. Positives: my oil production seems to be a lot less! That's all though! I'll prob update every so often.. maybe even tomorrow. xo Abby
