Hello again everyone. I'm back for another round of accutane!
If you guys check my earlier posts you'll see that last April I started taking 40 mg a day of Accutane for my severe acne, around August my face was conpletely clear and I stopped taking the medication at the end of September. I was acne free for 4-5 months and my scars were healing slowly. Sadly 3 weeks ago I noticed some small pimples on my skin, I also noticed that my face had started to flare up, it was an exam week full of st
Hey guys once again! It's been a really long time since I updated this blog so I'm sorry.
2 weeks ago my dermatologist told me I had to take Accutane for 1 more month, then I'd be done. Now I have almost 3 weeks left and I can now tell you guys that Accutane is a miracle.
My face has been 100% clear for 2 months! I haven't been like this since I was 12! 4 years of torture is now gone and my red marks are 85% gone, sometimes they're not even visible and I don't really care about them tbh, t
Hey guys! I'm really happy right now, my acne is still 100% clear and my red marks are fading faster than I thought! Again, I still don't have any side effects other than dry lips and lightly dry skin.
Back in April when my doctor told me I have no choice except Accutane, I really was depressed. I would hide during breaks at school and only let a hand full of friends see my face entirely. No matter how much I tried not to think about it, EVERYONE would ask me what was wrong with my face. Some
Hello once again! I'm pretty happy right now and I haven't had a pimple for weeks! All I can say is my only complaint is easily being cut/hurt by little things and cuts healing VERY slowly... Usually I heal really fast because I'm young but now I understand how it is to never heal for older people, very annoying!
If you guys have questions please don't hesitate, ask me! See you guys later
Hello! I actually don't have a lot to say but I just thought it would be helpful for other people on Accutane who are curious about what happens after day 100. I was pretty pissed when I couldn't find any blogs about what happens after day 100.
I just had one HUGE pimple on my forehead, it was really red and had no head, it completely went away in a week (no scar or red mark left usually in my forehead anyways) but I'm glad that's over. Other than that my red marks are fading and I can actual
Hey guys! I can't believe it's week 16! WOW! Ok whatever. I went to my dermatologist last week and he was happy with the results, so he gave me a 2 month supply of Accutane (40mg like always) because I will go on a 1 month vacation to LA. He said he will probably give me another month of the drug after our appointment in September which will be 7 months in total. No problem with that.
I'm not gonna lie, I broke out 2 times last week and I was pretty shocked to see pimples on week 15 but a day
Hey guys! I've been a bit lazy and firgot to post fir a couple of weeks so first of all, sorry. But I have great news!
I'm completely clear! I haven't had a pimple for a week and before that, I was clear for a week too! I'm really happy that the breakouts are over and my face can finally start healing, my next goal is to get rid of my horrid red marks. It's so crazy, 1 month ago I used to wake up with whiteheads all over my face trying not to pop them and hoping nobody would comment about my
Hey guys, it's been about 2 weeks since I last posted a blog, I really didn't need to make one because everything was the same.
Ok, like I said in my last post I've started using Aloe Vera to try to get rid of all the stubborn red marks, I don't know if it's working yet but there's no harm in using it, right? Other than that I'm still breaking out. Not as bad as 1 month ago, (those days were horrible), but I'm about to end my 3rd month and I kind of expected my acne to go away by now...
Hi again! I forgot to update my blog yesterday so here we go!
My acne is WAY better. Right now I've only had 4 active pimples for the past few days. But the real provlem is the red marks... They fade away very slowly especially when you still have acne + Accutane makes your skin sensitive. My mom told me to use Aloe Vera for the scars, she said they will go away much faster, and from what I read here I'm pretty sure it will work. I'll update you guys on that.
The corner of my lips are abou
Hey guys! Sorry for not posting last week and yesterday. I really didn't have a lot to report, but now I do.
Ok first of all yesterday I went to my dermatologist, he said my face was getting better and that I would be 100% clear by next month. He prescribed me 40 mg again. I asked him about the red marks and he said they would completely fade away 1-2 months after my Accutane journey. He also said that I didn't need to do a blood test because my last results were great, and my next appointmen
Hey guys! Today is my 6th week on Roaccutane. So I'll start by side effects:
-Never had joint pains and still don't even after going to the gym, so I guess I'm lucky!
-I don't have the dry nose feeling I had in week 3-4, it is dry but not like before.
-Dry lips but still no cracking.
-MOST IMPORTANTLY! Weird red marks on my left arm, dryness. I guess it's from Accutane so I put on some Nivea cream.
Ok, I'm just gonna say it this way: Accutane ruins your face, social life and confidenc
Hey guys! It's week 5/ day 35 of my Accutane treatment, I don't have a lot of updates except my breakout. So last week I said I thought my IB was slowly going away, I was totally wrong... 1 day later I woke up with the biggest bump I've ever had in the middle of my forehead, Accutane likes to fuck with you sometimes... The bump became way smaller and now it's a small whitehead, no problem now. But I've had huge whiteheads constantly under my eyes/ next to my nose for a couple of months and I alw
Today was my first month on Accutane and I went to my dermatologist. Surprizingly, my face looks really good today! It's still severe but I haven't had new cysts for a week or 2, I didn't have whiteheads today and I only have old cysts ready to come out! (i never touch them). He said I was going good and kept me on 40mg which he's been doing to every Accutane patient he's had for the last 20 years, I trust him.
I also showed him my chest where I have had this redness for about a year, it loo
Ok so today I noticed some minor differences. I used to get new bumps under my skin every day the first 3 weeks but now I don't get as much, I just can't wait to get rid of the IB... I also have some big closed pores (i think closed comedones?) where I always have whiteheads which is between my eyes and nose. I don't know how those are gonna go away but I have a feeling whenever I get a whitehead there, one pore becomes flat later on. If it is like that, then I got a long way a head of me cuz I
Hi, I'm a 16 years old and I've had acne since I was 11
Ok I don't know how this blog stuff works but let's hope I'm doing it right!
For years I've had acne only on my forehead but last fall, it spreaded to my cheeks and chin. To prevent it to get severe I went to get facials every week around the beggining of 2012, but I couldn't take the pain and I quit. Now I'm left with hyper pigmentation on my whole face.
I went to the dermatologist in February and the minute he saw my face, he sa
