Post 1 Month Update (2016-10-02)

So I've been taking accutane for around a month now. I'm roughly 120 lbs and am taking a dosage of 40mg every other day. The first month had been fantastic, my forehead had cleared up in the second or third week and I usually only had 1-2 pimples at a time. However I'm starting on my second week and I can definitely see the cycle is starting. I woke up on Friday with a bunch of small, slightly red bumps on my right cheek. This was very strange for me since I usually only get acne around my foreh

I'm In! (2016-08-22)

Continuing from the last post, after going to see the dermatologist, he immediately agreed that I should go on accutane. He gave me a prescription of 40mg of isotretinoin to take every other day. However, I just got my blood test done today and will be taking my first pill later this evening. The reason being that I was on a 2 week vacation and my parents thought taking the medicine on vacation might not be the smartest idea, since your skin is more sensitive to sunlight. So, from now on, I will

Dermatologist Adventures (2016-07-20)

Wow! Its been a while! In the past few months, I mainly stopped uploading because there wasn't a lot of change to my skin. There are still breakouts every day, on both my forehead, hairline, neck, and back. There has been slight improvement after using the topical gel and medicine -- I usually only have 4-5 pimples at a time on my face. But I'm still anxious to get rid of my acne. On Friday, I will FINALLY be going to the dermatologist! I'm hoping that I can finally get on Accutane. If all goes

Improvement? (2016-05-11)

Skin Update: My skin seems to be okay today, the dry patches are getting somewhat better and a lot of redness is gone. Tried not to pick a lot today, but it was pretty hard resisting the bad habit. The area I'm most concerned about is my eyebrow area. I often get a lot of white heads between the brows and the redness really bothers me because it affects my appearance more than usual. People are drawn to the eyes and therefore drawn to my acne. I usually cover it up with some concealer, and you c

Accutane? (2015-05-10)

Right now I'm using a topical gel and antibiotics my doctor prescribed to me. He told me if my skin got worse or didn't change after a trial month (even though I've used both products before) he might consider putting me on accutane. I did some research on it and it seems like it works fairly well. I'm particularly love that if it works for you, it my change your skin permanently! My mom is against it though, she thinks the side effects have too high of a risk and wants me to try other things in

Background Info

So a little about my skin: I started getting acne around 7th grade. It sucked, but it was manageable for the most part. A couple of pimples here and there were nothing to fret over. But I think it really started getting bad when I discovered a new bad habit: picking. Yes, I am guilty of being a picker. In my free time, I would scan my face for any small bumps and as soon as I had one targeted, I had to have it off no matter what. Eventually, this became uncontrollable and I'm still trying to
