After Roaccutane

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


Update 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

Month 3

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

Day 3

Day 3 Update pimples are drying up quicker than usual no break out yet but only day 3 probably best my skin has been in a month not dry yet

Day 1

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!
