Day 34

I started my second month a few days ago with a increase dose from 40mg to 60mg/day. I am still breaking out but my red marks are fading fast! I have two cysts on the right side of my face and about 4 nodules on the left side of my chin. My forehead is clear other than a healing blemish. Overall, my skin tone is improving but I am suppppppperrr dry. I apply moisturizer more than 3 times a day and I always have my carmex within reach. I've been using head and shoulders because my scalp is so i

Day 18

I just finished day 18 today. No big difference yet. I think I'm going through my IB, not sure tho..I've been dealing with constant breakouts so it's nothing new for me. The overall tone of my skin seems to be improving so that's a good sign! I've been able to put my contact back in with no major problems (knock on wood). My aren't watering like crazy anymore. My hands have been super dry and I have a few cuts that won't heal. Also, my shoulders have been super itchy..not sure what that's all

Week 1

Well, here are the week one results on Accutane. I actually just popped my 8th pill. The only side effects I have to complain about are extremely dry eyes and my joints are a little bit stiff. Also, my scalp has been feeling pretty itchy lately. I've been washing my face with cetaphil 1-2x a day, applying cetaphil moisturizer 2-4x a day, using my carmex and aquaphor about once every hour, moisturizing my body (not face) with baby oil and vaseline lotion 1-2x daily, and I also sleep with th

Ready, Set, Go! My Start Of Accutane

3 pregnancy test, 2 needle pricks, 2 visits to my therapist, multiple trips back and forth to my dermatologists office, 1 iPledge test, and about $50 spent on chapstick, lotion, and a humidifier..I am set for Accutane!!! It never felt so good to hold that box of pills in my very own hands. I have only been on it for 3 days now so there is nothing really to report! My skin is still retaining moisture, my lips aren't chapped (I've been using carmex hourly to prevent the chapping right in i

Calming Down

It's been almost a month since I've been on doxy, retin-a 1%, clindamycin, and benzol 5% and I already notice a HUGE difference. The cystic acne on my cheeks has gone down drastically, but there are still a lot of the under the surface bumps. My face is also still pretty red and there are left over red marks from the previous pimples. The improvement has made me second guess the whole accutane treatment, but I still plan on going through with it! I start on the 30th of this month with approval

Anxious For Accutane

Well..the new year has come around and I'm starting accutane in less than 30 days with approval of my psychologist (I have a history of depression/anxiety/OCD...yikes I sound crazy!!). I think a lot of my "mental issues" these past few months have been a result of acne..so let's hope I get the OK from my doctor. Even though I have not actually started to take accutane, I feel as though I'm already on it! I just finished my first month on microgestin (birth control) which has made me break out

Day 1

Today is my first day posting pictures. My history with acne is super extensive! I finally got the courage and OK by my doctor to start the course of Accutane, which I am both excited and nervous about. I have suffered from acne since age 13 when I started the Pro-Activ regimine. It worked wonders for 2 years, then I broke out with mild-moderate acne. It was at age 16 that I saw the dermatologist. He prescribed me with a benzol peroxide wash, clindamyacin lotion, duac cream, and solodyn pills. T
