I went to my four month roaccutane check up and told him I wasn't happy at all.
So another doctor at the same clinic had a look and told me those little bumps were Milia, and that I needed them extracted out.
So I was pretty pissed I went through roaccutane for pretty much nothing. My back acne has cleared up a lot but still am having to use benzoyl peroxide to maintain it being clear.
Anyway, so I got the milia extracted around October 2012 - I took about a week off work as there was scab
My eczema is slowly going, its not itchy anymore just a little red on one arm, woohoo!
i used Hope's Relief cream and had regular Alpha Keri Oil baths - seriously recommend it.
On a bad note...Sunday night I was frustrated/sad and took it out on my skin, if i could go back I would.
Anyway, definitely noticed the difference of squeezing on roaccutane. DONT DO IT. listen to your doctor, unlike me.
I feel so stupid
I have a deep red mark on my cheek, its not really open skin its
I am into my third month of roaccutane
i really dont feel like my skin has changed, i feel depressed, i have eczeme type rash on my arms (I did have on legs but it has gone now), I am always itchy.
I feel like no one really understands what I am going through and everyone is telling me to get off it (mainly because my skin still looks like shit)
I really have no idea if these whiteheads are ever going to go away. I am so over having bumps all over my face
Last check up my blood test
my skin feels bumpier - the little bumps and blackheads were my main concern and I don't know whether they are coming to the surface more or what but they are definitely more obvious. i hope this means its working!!
my skin isn't dry really - I am on very low dose so might be why (even though its week 3 I have only taken 10 pills)
the process of pimples seem to be sped up - get a head faster, dry up faster etc
itchiness on my face and head though is driving me insane!
Today I got first prescription of Roaccutane.
Visiting dermatologist cost $150
and prescription was $106 because it was a private dermatologist..could have been $34 so pretty off it about that!
First week I will start on 3 pills a day.
So will take one tonight, saturday and sunday
then week two monday, wednesday, friday, sunday
and so on until I take one a day
its is 20mg
I have had acne since 14, nothing like big break outs everywhere, but have always had these little white bu
