DAY 54: holy crap, i cant believe im almost finished with my second month. i haven't updated because i have been hella busy with finals and work. well just to follow up from my last post. those two cysts that were under my eye weren't going away any time soon, but i did notice they were flaky in the morning. by the fifth day i was able to insert a needle into them and drain them. the one closest to my eye went away completely and the other one which was the biggest of the two took awhile to comp
DAY 39: the cyst under my eye came back and he brought a friend! two cysts under my right eye and they're just there for all the world to see. one of them came to a head, but doesn't seem to be going down. theres about five zit things on my forehead. i guess im not done with the IB. wahhhhhh!!! i haven't washed my hair in almost two weeks! gross? its so dry and my hair isnt even oily!! surprisingly enough, it doesn't smell bad. TMI? anyway, here is what i have been experiencing: chapped li
DAY 31: Last week I was going to call my derm to get something for my IB and the awful cysts on my face, but it turned out that I had my appt anyway. Lucky me! When I went in, my derm said that my face was looking a lot better and that she could shoot up my cysts with some cortisone to help with the inflammation. Obviously, I obliged without any hesitation. Two to three days later all the bumps went down and that cyst under my eye was completely gone. Thank the universe for cortisone. Anyway, my
DAY 22: yesterday was really hard guys. i had an emotional break down and freaked the f out on my boyfriend (bless his heart) my skin looks terrible.. its really putting me into an emotional state that is really distracting. the appearance of my face just looks unhealthy.. all my pores are the size of hubcaps filled with either white nastiness or black nastiness. i have that stupid cyst by my eye still that is so angry.. its literally so big, that its obstructing my right eyes vision! the cysts
DAY 19: HOLY BLACK HEADS!!!! thats all i can really say right now! they are all over my cheeks and my face all of a sudden got super super dry and flaky today. the cyst below my eye is ginormous and painful. all the other cysts on my chin and cheeks exploded this morning, so now they are dry, scabby bumps. blah! also, time to get some new makeup that's more moisturizing. any suggestions? any suggestions on face moisturizers?
WEEK 2: i think the initial breakout has begun. my left cheek, which is usually the good side, has about 4 active cysts with some brewing under the surface. a honker just appeared on my chin and theres a bunch of zits/tiny pimples all along the right side of my temple, eyebrow, and hairline. there is also a super painful cyst forming under my right eye and when i say right under my eye, i mean, literally right under my eye. it hurts so bad!!!! any suggestions?! has anyone experienced cysts
DAY 11: new pimples (NOOOOOO!) around my temples and a few baby cysts on my cheeks (NOOOOOOO!) i doubt this is my IB, but it would be so awesome if this were it!! ive had these two zits that wont go away between my eyebrows. do you think i could get away with popping them? theyre like these hard white heads that kind of feel like scabs. theyre super obnoxious, especially since my bangs arent long enough to hide them. my experiences so far have been tolerable. i was expecting them to be a lo
Hi everybody! It's been a week today since I popped my first Claravis pill. I'm taking 40 mg a day with my first meal of the day. I'm wondering if I should take it at night?! Any thoughts on that anyone? Anyway, I have experienced some minor side effects, such as: Headaches Grogginess Lower back pain Minor chapped lips Dry eyes Minor dry face.. Mainly around my nose, chin, and pre existing pimples Super dry throat Always thirsty!!! It seems like my face is clearing u
yesterday was AWFUL!! after i posted, i continued my day by going to class, then going to work. i had dizzy spells and was kind of groggy the entire time i was at work and i work at a coffee shop!! i'm never groggy or lethargic. my eyes were so dry, they were blood shot. my lower back pain was almost unbearable and i somehow managed to get bruises on my hands and knuckes (probably from kickboxing) i usually never bruise that easily. anyway, i came home and was sooo exhausted!!! i passed out
so, today is the 5th day and im not experiencing too many side effects. my face, especially my eyes, specifically my lash lines, are super itchy. my whole body seems to be itchy. i have some lower back pain, but i think it might be from kickboxing. most of the active pimples that i had before starting 5 days ago have dried up and are flaky. i currently have maybe 5 active spots, but are super tiny with white heads. i have a huge honker in my eye brow that hurts like a mother. my lips are not as
Hey everyone! Just popped my first pill yesterday and I haven't experienced any side effects yet. Although my lower back was hurting, but I think that was because I was cleaning my apartment all day. I woke up this morning and my face seemed to be less oily. I usually wake up super greasy. Maybe its just me. I'm about to pop my second pill!! yay!
Hey guys, I just posted two pictures in my gallery!! Ahhhhh! Hopefully they don't scar-e you. Anyway, the Aczone and Cetaphil that my derm gave me while i wait has been helping with my acne, well it seems. The cystic lesions on my forehead went away. Thank god!!! Those are the worst. 16 more days until I go on Accutane and I can not wait!!!
Hi there, I just turned 26 yesterday and my face is out of control with acne STILL! I have decided that it doesn't matter whether or not I go out with or without makeup, except for work just because I am required to wear makeup. Anyway, I am about two weeks away to my dermatologist appointment, where I will be prescribed Accutane if my blood works shows that I am not pregnant. It sucks that girls have to wait an entire month to get the process going! My derm. gave me a bunch of samples of Aczone
