Day 18: Update

It's been about a week since my last post, and there have been lots of changes since then. My skin has broken out around my mouth (extremely annoying and slightly painful with the really dry lips), and my forehead. They tend to be the ones that build up from underneath the surface of my skin, and get red/swollen. The ones around my mouth are whiteheads... Since my last post, my lips have gotten really dry.

Day 1: The Journey Begins

First day ever taking Oratane (Accutane). I took Accutane when I lived at home in Canada, but had to come off of it because I couldn't meet the blood test dates due to moving to Australia. Now, I'm back on their version of Accutane, so we'll see where this goes! While on Accutane, I had some progress. I wasn't on it for very long, and I did have the side effects of severe dry lips and flaky, dry facial skin. My hands were moderately dry, but I didn't notice any other side effects besides
