6 Month Accutane Journey Complete

Hey Everyone, So its been some time since I posted last, been too busy sorry. Lots has happened. Not sure where to begin but here it goes.

I was worried when I saw her because it was the middle of month 5 and I was still breaking out with a few pimples and also my menstrual cycle was all crazy. She told me I should be on birth control as treatment for the po

Day 91 - Week 13

So it's been quite some time since I last posted and thats because not alot has happened for me to be updating. I'll fill you in anyway. Same old buldging cysts, and when I feel like my face is semi decent and they're starting to disappear, another comes along. I can most definately say I have come along way from where I was before I started accutane. There was not a single spot on my face that was not covered with acne/cyst and how red it was. I've noticed that the pimples are limited to my fac

Day 59 - Week 8 Accutane

hello to all those reading, i cannot believe that 2 months on accutane have already come and gone. As far as my acne goes, it too has come and gone. My face has a few actives mostly on the left side along the jaw line, and few pimple like on my forehead. Which to me is much less than what it used to be. I am noticing it is a LITTLE less red, generally where it used to be my whole face was like a tomatoe when i have major cysts everywhere possible on my face. Now it is mearly becoming less v

Accutane Day 28 & 2Nd Derm Appt

Hello to those reading, its been a while since my last blog and only a few things have changed or happened since then. 1. last week, I had to take a car ride for an hour and it was quite sunny outside and well i tried to cover myself from the sun by keeping my hood over my face. the next day I had a little bit of redness on my hands and then became a little bumpy and dry. so I constantly kept applying hand cream to help. from that hour drive in the sun - with no sunscreen (because I fo

Day 13

Hey, so this is my very first blog. I thought I would share my experience with everyone and hope it helps to those unsure about using accutane and struggling with cysitc acne. My name is Katarina, im 22 from Canada and have been struggling with acne since puberty. During my preteen and teen years it was fairly normal acne here and there a pimple. As I got older it would just occur before my menstrual cycle and then go away. I have a really bad habit of popping them. Just last year I moved
