Accutane Day 20

Hey guys! So I'm a little down... I've been breaking out recently. I have 5 huge pimples on my right cheek. Before accutane I never had that many at one time. These ones are big and they hurt. I have one pimple on my left cheek and a couple small ones on my forehead and chin. I look gross when I wear makeup to try to cover them. I'm hoping this is the initial break out and that it doesn't get much worse than this. I also have developed a ton of blackheads all across my nose

Accutane Day 16

Hey! My dark spots are beginning to fade. They are still very noticeable, but I do see the improvement. I have two new pimples on my right cheek. A couple that are beginning to go away on my forehead and no active ones on my left cheek. I still have the same side effects, in addition to some new ones. My face and lips are still dry and my scalp is still itchy and flakey (although I got Selsun blue for flakey scalp, so hopefully that helps.) One of my new side effects is that I ha

Accutane Day 10

Hey everyone! My acne does seem to be clearing up a bit. I hope this continues and that I don't experience an initial break out. The dark marks, which were my main problem to begin with have also begun fading a little bit. As for side effects, my lips are dry. My skin is also dry but not nearly as dry as I expected it to be. I use Cerave sunscreen in the morning and this is sufficient to clear up my dryness. I don't use any moisturizer at night. My scalp is still itchy and that is

Accutane Week 1

Hey guys! So I've taken my seventh pill of Claravis. For the most part I feel fine. I haven't noticed any improvement and my acne is only slightly worse than before I started accutane. My face is starting to get more dry. But it is definitely not too bad and I can still wear makeup, although by the end of the day my face looks cakey with makeup. My lips are starting to peel and it feels like I have a sunburn on them. However, this also is not very bad and is easily manageable with a

Accutane Day 4

Hey everyone! Well, like a lot of you I've been suffering from acne for a long time, since I was about 12 years old. There seemed to be some years where it wasn't so bad and others where it was. Three years ago I had a bad breakout but Retin-A really cleared it and all of my dark spots up very fast. My skin never looked better. This past June I started breaking out again and I haven't stopped since. It's been much worse than it was three years ago and nothing has cleared it up this time. On J
