A year and a half post accutane

Making this post just because I was thinking about how much this account helped me when I was struggling so bad. I now get a pimple once in a while, I get less anxiety about them and don't freak out about pimples like I used to. I could not thank accutane or this blog enough for getting me through a tough time. I also and still using the acne.org moisturizer and I love it. I won't put anything else on my skin.Heres some updated pictures.

Done accutane after 8 months

I went back to the dermatologist today and she told me that my red bumps on my face was my skins reaction to the super dry skin, bumpy eczema. So we stop my accutane at the lower end of my final dosage, with the fear the the eczema on my face would get worse and do more damage to my skin. I've been off the medicine since Tuesday but still super dry ! The photo attached in from Tuesday , the day I stopped the medicine.

Month 7 and half ? Of accutane

I am on my 7 month towards the middle of the 7th month I Beilve, I had a terrible experience at the blood test... last month. The lady who toke my blood hit a nerve in my arm and it was instant pain and I could feel that she did something wrong. For the next week and still even now weeks later I feel the right pain in my arm. The first week I had to wear I sling the pain was so bad. But back to my skin, it broke out more then it has in a while last week I was alittle shocked, and then on Friday night I felt a cystic pimple forming on my cheek and of course when I woke up Saturday it was nice as big. I did lots of hot Compress and it seemed to have done wonders, in  very short time. I have an urge to pop every pimple I feel but with accutane my skin takes so long to heal the red marks from popping take so long to go away and I found waiting it out I really worth it despite my urge to squeeze it. I thought  was done with the cystic acne so I'm very surprised I see this but who knows! Keep on pushing if u just started, it will work

About 5 months of accutane

About my 5 month mark on Thursday, and Just had some very bad sunburn for the past 4 days, with blisters and everything !!! I love the sun but don't plan on messsing with he sun anymore until I'm off this medicine. I'm currently on 40 mg a day and have only been on that for 1 month. Next month will be my second month of 40 mg and will be on the medicine at least 8 months maybe longer. Since I had some problems with white blood cell counts in the beginning. But still never thought I'd come this far! If I didn't pick my skin as much I'm sure it would be looking a lot better at this time! Can't wait till the day when I will have absolutely nothing to pick at.

90 days of accutane , 3 months

Hi , this is my 3 month update. I've been on accutane for 90 days now. I was on 20 mg per day for first 2 months and past month I was on 30 mg per month. The improvement my skin has made sometimes blows me away. But I'm so paranoid about my skin. And I don't think that will ever stop. I can't remember a day where I didn't wake up with a big huge painful red pimple on my cheek. Until recent days , and it's never felt so good. I can't wait to have more and more results. Anyone on there first or second month , keep pushing through it gets better much fast then you can ever except.

Accutane 30 mg month 3

Hello everyone, today is my 66th day , I recently went up to 30 mg from the previous 20mg a day, I think there was a fluke in my last blood test , so I'm very happy this one worked out in my favor, the doctor said I might be on it for a year , unless they can keep using my dosage. So we'll see! But my back still kills but nothing else really , expect dry lips

57 days of accutane almost on month 3

This is my 57 day update and I have a tendency to pop the black heads on my checks so it looks like I'm breaking out but really I just cause the spots my self. The black heads are just so large and look pop able but it always looks worse after. Oh well. I have about 5 active pimples and my face just feels a lot cleaner , not really less greasy yet but healthier and happier. I can tell it's going somewhere, which makes me very happy. Starting month 3 soon and hoping my blood tests come out better this time so they can finally up my dosage from 20mg to 30 mg which I was unable to do last month because of blood test results. Everyday is journey but we're all in this together , I try to remind my self of that.

Day 50 of accutane

Hello, today is day 50 of my accutane treatment. I can't tell if it is clearly up or just keep going though phases were it looks better for a couple days or so. We'll see, but hardly any side effects face isn't even really dry although the rest of my body is. And lots and lots of lower back pain, to the point where I can't even lay a certain way on my back. Here's also my day 50 photos.

Accutane

Hi! I started accutane about a week ago, nothing extremely bad yet , just some dry skin which is nothing unexpected, and a few pretty bad headaches. Also felt very nauseous one day but it didn't last very long thank goodness. Here's some pictures. They larger collage is photos of my acne from time to time on some of my worst days, before accutane.

Acne has ruined my life

Hi, recently the pass 6 -7 months I have been struggling with moderate to serve acne and some days are better then others. But no day is perfect. Before these 7 months I would get maybe one or two pimples a week and they were easy to deal with and NEVER once did they ever scare. Now I find every pimple I get scares for a week at the shortest and some have been here for months although have slightly faded are still there and red.
Acne has ruined my social life, I can't remember the last time I went out at night on the weekends. I'm no longer close with all my friends because I shut them out on weekends as well as in school I try to talk the least amount of people I can. And Thoose I do talk to I try not to look up so they see my acne. Many people tell me "it's not that bad" and " it could be much worse" but it is affecting me greatly and I am starting to give up.  I am starting accutane in about 2 weeks. Although all the bad things that can happen and evrything, I've never been more excited to start a medication. I just don't get how it got this bad and I can't wait for it to be over. I'm thinking accutane will be successful for me because my acne comes and goes and is much worse at times but I can only hope. Wish me luck.
