Day 8 of Accutane

Wow I can't believe it's been a week and a day since I've started accutane! Today my face peeling dead skin and just overall dry. Lips dry too, but not the nose....... Yet.  Although, I did get a big pimple underneath my skin on the nose and it hurts!!!!!!!! I also got a kind of an initial breakout. I've got lots more pimples than I did. Some of them hurt too. I've also noticed that I've got joint pain. I feel like an old grandma hobbling around because her back hurts. When I stand up or sit dow
 

Day 5 of Accutane

Well looks like I got a chance to write today! Today I didn't have any headaches so I didn't have to take Ibprofen! I did have to moisturize A LOT! A bit of joint pain. That's about all. Skin looks about the same. A few new deep pimple popped up my my nose and my mouth. That's all! 
 

Day 4 of Accutane

Just a quick update on day 4. Today I woke up with a headache, and it was awful:( I tried to tough it out but eventually I had to take Ibuprofen. If that's how you spell it. It helped almost right away, and I haven't had a headache since noon. Which is nice since I had one for Tuesday, Wednesday and a bit today. I might have to take another one tomorrow. We'll see. I was a bit worried at first because I didn't know if it was dangerous to have a headache for that amount of time on accutane... Unt
 

Day 3 of Accutane

Well, this is day three of Accutane. Not a lot has happened. My skin looks about the same. My lips were a little bit dry. My dermatologist said that my lips would probably be the first thing to go dry, and they were. Not too dry yet though. I also had a headache today. All day. I drank lots of water, so I don't know if it was from just not getting enough sleep or maybe light sensitivity or me just having a plain old hormonal headache! Who knows.......? Anyways, other than that mostly normal. 
 

Day 2 of Accutane

Today is day two of Accutane! I'm taking 40 milligrams of the Accutane Roche 40 every night after dinner. Or something like that. I'm eating a dinner with very fatty foods so that it can absorb better. I haven't noticed anything out of the ordinary yet, I didn't expect to anyways. I'm moisturizing a lot though, just to make sure my skin isn't dry before it gets even dryer! I'm using a glob of the CeraVe moisturizer after my showers, and the CeraVe face moisturizer that has 30spf in it for the da
 

Day 1 of accutane

This is my first day on accutane! I'm 13 years old and have had acne since grade 6. I've done a lot of research and read a lot of blogs, and finally decided to do it! Before I decided to start Accutane I had gone on a diet for my acne that included not eating gluten, dairy, corn, refined sugars, rice and some other odd foods. I was expecting it to be all clear after 4 months of doing this. A silly expectation I guess because it wasn't clear, the only thing that had happened was the redness on my
