Over 2 Months On Accutane

I'm on week 9 and my skin is clearing. I am just going to do a few paragraphs on key information that has been relevant to my course. My derm has said twice that my reaction has been one of the best she has seen, especially considering how inflamed it was so bare this in mind - that I was lucky. First, I would like to say that I broke out EVERY TIME my medication was altered at all. When i stopped antibiotics, when i stopped prednisolone and both times i upped my dose by 5mg. Im on 40mg rig

Week 3 Accutane

I am now on week 3 of 30mg/day roaccutane + 2 prednisolone pills (cba to check spelling, think its right tho). I suffered a 'second' IB around the end of week 2, when my antibiotics but since then its been great. I have one active lesion on my face, which I didn't expect. Before that, after IB settled, I didn't even think about my skin, only occasionally in some lighting. Once this lesion goes it will be much the same. To go from literally constantly looking at my skin, to not caring due to its

Day 17 Accutane

My face has definitely become less oily, in fact, it is quite dry. All my normally active areas (everywhere on cheeks) are inactive bar one lesion. This is quite impressive. Only new lesions after antibiotics are 3 in the middle of my forehead which I find quite unsightly but what can you do...My face is just full of red marks / early scars...whatever you want to call them, so I know its a long road to recovery. I am getting very few lesions so at least there is steady improvement rather than st

Day 14 On Accutane (Last Day Of Antibiotics)

I saved my last antibiotic pill for the morning to slowly ween myself off it in the hope that it will curb a breakout. All my inflammatory lesions have calmed a lot, that said all the smaller, unnoticable bumps are more whitehead-esque on my jawline, making it hard for me to shave. I'm only getting lesions around my eyebrows and they arent that bad positionally. I have to say I am happy with the overall improvement in my skin, it is more or less just red marks right now. I just want to write thi

Day 10 On Accutane + Intro

I am an 18 year old male. Suffered form acne severely for around a year. Tried all topicals and a long course of doxycycline but it came back so my derm prescribed accutane immediately because it is the severe inflammatory type that causes scarring. When I started accutane most of my active lesions had a week to calm down or so and had only got 1 or so that week but it was still very red around my face. I am on 30mg (roche) roaccutane per day (0.5mg/kg), 2 prednisolone (steroid) pills, and cla
