Day 32

Officially in the second month. What can I say? The first month was hell. Still not sure if my initial breakout is over. I didn't wipe my face with a rag in the shower last night so there's a bunch of dry skin on my face and I wear makeup so when I ate lunch all the makeup on my chin cracked. Embarrasing. Anyways I literally probably have about 20-25 spots on my face. Only one of them is big though but most of them are on my chin so yeah. I'm just trying to stay out of anything social altogether

Day 17

Ugh when will it end? Still breaking out. I have the same ones that I started with on my chin that feel like they're taking centuries to heal and go away, I got 3 on the side of my cheek, and 3 that were small bumps become big on my forehead, and then there's one under my freaking left eye that is ridiculous. It has so much pressure and just feels like a big lump of water. I can see it! It's like obsuring my vision hahaha it looks like I got punched in my eye to be honest. I'm sure it doesn't ac

Day 13

So I have about 20 pimples and they're all on my chin. They've been there for a week (well I started out with about 10 but I get 1 or 2 new ones a day so now there's like 20). Each day goes by and my skin is getting less oil so it's getting dryer and I think it's making my pimples look worse. They itch and there's a lot of pressure and I can't wait for them to be gone. I hope my face calms down because they're taking forever to heal too. If I quit getting pimples at least my skin would look bett

Day 11

Day 11 whoo! Okay so if you read my day 8 you know that I had an initial breakout that day and messed with them (shame on me). If you didn't read it well...that's what happened. That caused my breakouts to become very red and finally they are starting to look less irritated. They're also drying up still. I'm hoping none of these Accutane pimples scar. Nothing too significant but bumps on my face looking smaller everyday is nothing to complain about. I can't say I've had any more breakouts but ju

Day 8?

Okay so I had a little bit of what I think is an IB. What happened was I got a bunch of little pimples all around my mouth area. And then I still had some of the bigger ones I had before taking Accutane. So all in all I probably had a total of 15 pimples all along my chin/jawline and like I said most of them were little but anyways my chin mouth looks like a minefield on my face so of course I had to mess with them. :/ Yes, I tried popping them ALL. they look red now and some of them didn't even

13th Pill

So took my 13th pill a bit ago. I guess there's nothing really new. My bumps I had before starting are still there but they're drying up. I had a bunch of underground ones so I feel it may take a bit for them to go away. The only pimple I've gotten since starting I couldn't help but try to pop and I suppose it did a bit but there's still a bump even though it was a whitehead. It was red before and it's still red now. I hope since I'm still early on in the treatment it will heal okay. I went like

8th Pill

Okay so I'm on day 4 so here's an update. I have no new pimples and have only gotten one little one so far since I've started. My other ones I've had before are still drying up. I am sooo itchy already though. My face is especially itchy and it's so irritating! My legs and shoulders are a bit itchy too but my face is really bothering me. Does anyone have any suggestions for that? Other than that my face is still a bit red and lips are chapped. Those are managable.

6th Pill

Okay so I've taken 6 pills which means...day 3. I gotta say I'm happy with the results so far and I may be jumping the bullet saying that since it's so early on but that that's okay! I'm honestly shaking in my boots waiting for an initial breakout and crossing my fingers that I don't get one. Side effects aren't bad yet and I'm sure they'll get worse. All I'm really having is a bit of redness around my nose area, a liiiitle but of flaking (barely anything though), and chapped lips that aren't th

2nd Pill

Okay so I've taken my second pill of Accutane this morning. I can say that I think it's already affecting my acne. I have a bunch of big spots on my chin under the skin and I can actually feel them shrinking. They kind of itch because of it as well. I looked in the mirror and they look smaller as well. Hopefully I can skip the initial breakout because I was on what my derm told me was the topical version of Accutane for about a month waiting for my Accutane to process and THAT gave me a ridiculo


Hi everyone. Not sure if anyone will read my blog/journey but I'm making it in hopes that some will and that I'll get some responses! I've done a lot of research on here as well and retained a lot of information from others on here so maybe some will get that from mine as well? No telling what will happen! Okay so some background... I'm 22 years old and I've had acne since middle school. So about 8/9 years. I've tried many things and although my acne isn't too terrible it's just enough to annoy
