10 Wks ,4 Days On Accutane

I have slacked off on Posting. 4 week checkup I was doing better. Face was awesomely 100% clear with alot of peeling. Dr. increased my dosage from 40 mg to 60 mg(2 pills). I tried to take the 2 pills, 1 in am, 1 in pm, but tended to forget alot, so the majority of the time I was doing 30 mg/day. 1st week of December - about 5 weeks in : My chest was completely clear. I can finally wear low-cut tops. Which I really haven't done since it is cold and I don't own many due to my chest

Day 16 - Accutane

This stuff is working so quickly. I am ashy, dry. My skin is nice and smooth one minute and within a few minutes it is cracked and peeling off. It's crazy. I can't keep up with enough moisture. Everything else is ok. I can keep with the lips ok.

Day 10 - Accutane

Really today should be day 11, but I forgot to take it today. Very unfortunate. Got busy with work and forgot. I will wait for tomorrow morning's dose. I now feel like I have hair lice. I am so itcy on and around hairline. I am now very flaky. My hair requires very moisture-rich shampoo or it will strip my hair and overly dry it. Therefore, no head and shoulders for me, at least for now. I will do my best to make it through this without killing my hair. Yesterday when I washed it,

Day 9 - Accutane

The past couple of days, I've been waking up with dry face and dry lips. Upper lip is flaky white. After washing in the morning, I either put aquaphor or vaseline for relief. Today my scalp around hairline is very itchy and starting to flake. Yesterday, I had a big new pimple pop up right on my forehead and another tried on my nose, but I got it out before it could grow much more. ha.. Everything else seems to be drying on my face. Alot is drying on my back and chest but still needs a

Day 5 - Accutane

Yesterday, I left the house without applying sunblock. I live in Texas and the weather was warm. It was just an errand to go vote at the library which is about 1.5 miles from my house. As I'm driving, I feel the heat on my arms. As I walk the short distance to the library, I felt the sun burning the one arm that was in the sun. The other was fine in my shadow. I felt like I'd been sitting on the beach for an hour. Note to self: always apply sunblock when stepping outside. I played

Day2

Not much change yet. I did take some pics last night for day 1- so uploading. fyi- you might think oh, her face looks pretty clear. I just got two cyst ones on face last week and they went down. There are also remnants of a cyst one on the middle of my neck. The majority on face are little blkheads and white heads and tiny little red ones. And remember, I am 36! This is not right for my age. lol. Today I took the pill with a late breakfast and no gassiness. I think that was the prob

Day 1 - First Accutane Pill

I've been very nervous about starting this at the age of 36. I took my first course at around 22 or 23 when I had cystic acne on face, chest and back. Halfway through the course, I began receiving compliments from aquaintances. It was the only thing that worked for me after years of trying everything else. Acne stayed away for quite a few years until I had my son in 2004. A few years after that, they slowly started coming back and mostly on my chest and back. In 2009 at the height of
