Day 58..... Worst Breakout Ever Experienced!

So for the past 12 or so days I have really been hiding from everyone as my skin is definitely the worst it has ever been in the 30 years on the planet! It was so bad that I couldn't sleep on my left side of my face as it was so lumpy and sore. Its bad as I have to go to work and try to look pretty (half of a stewardess job) and I'm so paranoid about passengers looking at my face. I have also been so fatigued and have been sick twice. Once with a bad cold and once bout of gastro. Im guessin

Day 39 Dry Nose To The Extreme!

So day 39 has come along very quickly and the side affects I have read about are now happening to me more and more.... my nose is the worst side affect so far with it being terribly sore, crusty (gross) and bloody all the time. I'm having short nose bleeds ( 1 minute ) during the night every night. Also the backs of my hands are both covered in a red spot rash thats very dry but not itchy. I went to the chemist to refill my script and I was given some nasal spay oil to help with the dryness s

Day 28 - 4 Weeks Down, 16 To Go!

So after a sizeable breakout on one side of my face only on day 19/20 (with no whiteheads either) that has cleared up after 3 days . Skin has been pretty good for the past few days, no new pimples but I have been having 1 nosebleed pretty much everynight when im asleep. Not good for the white bedding! Thank god I normally wake up when they start. As I'm a long haul flight attendant I do 15 hour flights regularly and I'm finding the dryness of the plane is a really hard thing to manage. I th

Day 17.....dry Nose And Eyes Are Killing Me!

So day 17 into the isotretonin..... skin looks the same ( normal amount of pimples) but i'm very dry around the edge of my nose and bottom of my chin. The thing that is annoying me the most is how dry my nose is inside. I wake up in the middle of the night and its quite sore - same with my eyes. Another side affect is that im feeling like its making my hair grow much quicker than normal - I have heard of hair falling out but I swear as soon as I shave my legs or underarms the hair is right b

End Of Week 1..... Starting To Feel It!

Im on day 6 today and haven't had too much to report back, lips starting to get dry and I'm applying Aquaphor quite often..... Skin does feel pretty oily only halfway through the day - i do apply a little more bare minerals and it seems to soak it up! Hair is also much more oily than normal. Skin hasn't really gotten any worse or better this week but it feels like the texture is starting to get thicker for some reason. I also had a few glasses of wine with dinner and had no side effects so thats

Oratane Week 1!

So after 17 years of struggling with acne and trying everything ever made I have finally taken the plunge and been prescribed 60mg a day of Oratane. On day 2 so far and after taking 3 20mg per day tablets i haven't really seen much difference..... just a few more pimples and my hair felt a bit more greasy than normal this afternoon. I have decided to really try to stop drinking alcohol after reading what affects it has on your liver..... does anyone have any more feedback on their own Oratane
