Day 42

My skin is breaking out on my face while on accutane! Not a lot, but it is still breaking out and clearing up less. It is also less dry and more oily. I'm worried the accutane is not working anymore. I went through quite a stressful time so that could be why I am breaking out, but I am still very unimpressed with how it is looking. Really praying.

Day 40

SO today is day 40. I don't actually know how long I have left but my back is only JUST beginning to clear and it turns out my face is actually breaking out a bit. Weird. I am also about to go on vacation in a week, which may make my skin way worse:( I really hope the breakouts on my chin disappear because they're psyching me out SO much. I just want to see constant improvement.

Day 39

So today is day 39, I have not posted here because I've been keeping my own journal. On this day, my skin has improved immensely, though I do have two rather large pimples on my chin and one on my back, the rest is mainly scarring. I skipped my dose yesterday because I drank a lot of alcohol on Sunday, which made me extremely ill. I won't be drinking on alcohol again because I actually fear that I have done liver damage. Yikes. I am on 60 mg.

DAY 15!

Today is day 15, and i have seen a bit of improvement in my face. I have dry eyes, lips, and a dry face. My face is getting less oily during the day and overnight. My back sadly has not improved and my face is still breaking out a little bit. I'll be patient.

DAY 11!

Haven't written in a couple days, but I am having a lot of dryness, in lips and face. Things are clearing but clogging at the same time. I think it'll take a while to completely work.

Day 5!

Today is day 5. I was very tired while lifeguarding today which isn't as normal for me, and my lips did get dry. Also, I got a headache but it may have been from the heat. Not too many side effects and the acne is definitely still coming. I also picked some of my pimples today which was really dumb. Tomorrow is a new day though, and I won't have to guard.

DAY 4!

So today will be day 4... and I still am obviously breaking out, trying not to pick but I must say its hard and I did give in, which made things worse. Im telling myself now that picking will only prolong this process, so future me: DONT PICK IT! totally not worth it, at all! I just need to wait for things to fall into place. My side effects have actually begun to come out a tad, my lips are slightly drier and I have itchy eyes. AND its only day 4! Hopefully everything fast tracks!  Ill stay up

DAY 3!

So today is day 3! I don't feel any side effects, once again  But I would like to start feeling them soon so that I at least know this is working... my skin does not look good at all but I think I'm beginning to learn to cope with it looking bad. I think the key would just be not to pick at it. Sorry this is short haha...

Day 1!

Hello all!  So today I am making my first entry. As of today I have started Accutane and am on 40mg a day, going up to 60mg eventually. I am 130 pounds, female, and 17. I'm really hoping to cure or at least improve my acne. I will post pictures once my skin begins to adjust but right now it really looks quite mild and I don't know if anyone reading would even believe a doctor would put me on the drug. But here I am, after trying doxycycline, tactupump, benzagel, proactive, and much more. I am d
