Went to the derm again last Monday, going to pick up my third prescription today. I'm happy with my results so far, it's been a long road to where I'm at now, but through all of my side effects it's been worth it. My hair is thinning out I think, but it's not noticeable, the dryness of course, bouts of mild eczema on my hands, back and joint pain, vision trouble (after an eight hour shift of looking at a computer screen I become extremely near sighted.) headaches, not being able to concentrate..
I'm trying to be patient, but geeze it's hard some days. It's just a constant type deal and it is disheartening some days. Today is a "good" day, but I'm not going to think for a second that tomorrow won't be bad again. I've been feeling pretty down, and I think it's definetly the accutane. My mind has just been foggy. I can't consent rate at all, and I get upset by small things. It could also be the weather here too though. It's been a long cold winter. Either way, I am going to push throug
Wow this really is a roller coaster ride! Had a huge sucker pop up the night I posted my last entry. And another big cyst on my chin. But, all in all I can't complain. It's still NOTHING compared to how it was but again, the scarring!!! Should I try miderma? I'm using bio oil but idk if I'm seeing results. I've almost bike down and done a chemical peel (5%) but went with my better judgement on that. Should I be seeing more improvement by now? My face really is smooth and that I am grateful for.
Ok, I think I really see improvement now. The angry red scarring is calming down and I don't have ANY new pimples ))) only two teeny tiny stubborn cysts. About 1/3 the size of a pea. My face feels so smooth when I run the back of my hand across my cheek. A month ago it was like a gravel road and so painful. I hope I'm not jinxing myself, and I PRAY it stays clear so that the marks can fade. So happy about this. Also, I don't have to use the heavy makeup anymore. I was using color stay 24 hr by r
Just got back from my one month follow up. I asked if he could bump me up to 60 mg, but he said no .... I guess my maximum dose is 55. I've never heard of this, but i am pretty small. 97lbs 4'11. But anyway, he did say he sees improvement. Which, I can't help but take with a grain of salt because he has so many patients how's he going to remember my face? Lol. I guess it does look better, I just wish my scarring would improve. Here's pictures. Opinions please!
I've been kind of waiting to post a new entry. Mainly to avoid redundancy, and actually show some progress. I still don't really feel like I've seen many changes. My cheeks are still flakey and I still have the same stubborn spots. I picked again and that was not a good decision. My skin just heals so weird now! Scabs just slough off like a sheet and underneath is just a patch of raw skin. That process just repeats itself. Idk how else to explain it. I think I'm starting to get a little disap
I think *hope* this is my ib. I so desparately want clear skin. With makeup on I feel 'ok'. Without it, I feel hard to look at. I just want to know what it feels like to "feel pretty." Acne has such a major impact on my life. I just want clear skin :/. L this is what I look like without the makeup, anything but beautiful.
Hmmmm I pick too much. My jawline has a couple of decent sized bumps. But my cheeks are still healing. Maybe if I could keep my hands off of my face it would already be healed. My skin is so dry. My eyes burn, and I just feel very blah today. Like emotionless. But I highly doubt it's the accutane. I'm just sleepy, I did take two sleep aids last night. Maybe I just never woke up. Also noticed that where I cut the palm of my hand last night, there is no scab it's still an open slice. Maybe slowin
I think my skin is finally turning a corner. What's it take to get some comments here? Lol. Last night my boyfriend was gone to drill, so I didn't wear makeup all day which felt nice. I didn't moisturize either, just to see if that would help it heal quicker. And I think it did, wierd I know but my face didnt have a single new pimple this morning and seems to be on the mend. I home it stays like this. I'm going to attach some photos please give me some feedback!
Ok, I should have started this a long time ago. This entry will kind of be a quick backlog of everything. I am 25, I have two kids aged 3 and one. I used to have an ok completion in highschool. Ok enough not to have a panic attack if someone saw me without makeup. I'm not really even sure when it started, but I am so self conscious about my skin now that it really does have a huge impact on my life. I would get so much more joy out of simple things that people with clear skin don't even think
