Month2 Recap with pics

So, as the tag says it all, the redness and tiny bumps were developed.Everyone started asking me if i had put any blush on my cheeks. I kept coconut oil to my hair.So, I noticed that the coconut oil also falls on the face and this activates the glands on face, thereby inducing more acne. Tip: Donot oil your hair excessively while on the Isotroin dosage

week7

I am on the same Isotroin 30mg dosage twice a day.I feel like some scars have become light and some bumps have also disappeared. Lesson learnt:Don't put oil to hair while on Isotroin dosage.Because the scalp tries to absorb the hair oil and this even spreads to the glands on face and they tend to increase the acne.

week6

The same old story went on even in the week6.My lips were chapped and the whole area around my mouth started scaling and pimples were shrinked but not eliminated completely.My face is shining(my friends started asking me why I am sweating so much)...:D

#1 month Recap(20th July-20th Aug '2017) with pics

In short, you can check the before and after pics of my face.At first my face had whiteheads and many newly emerging pimples.I started using Isotretnoin 40mg and azithromycin 250mg per day for 15 days and then increased the dosage to 60mg per day.I have also been using cetaphil cleanser to cleanse my face and benzoyl peroxide 5% topical treatment on my face.At the end of the first month,my whiteheads have gone,skin has turned from itchy->less itchy->itchy when I stopped putting benzoyl per

week5

I had to put makeup on my face due to some reasons,this week.Fortunately, nothing has happened(I feel). I then stopped using BP5% as I felt that it prevented acne from flaring up and bursting out(Because BP5% kept on shrinking the bumps without eliminating them).However, I still use cetaphil cleanser as facewash.After stopping BP5%, I felt like my bumps have flared up a bit, and they have now changed to wild red color.And my skin is now hardly scaling.I am now in a dilemma of whether the bumps w

week4

I still had the same chapped lips,and the same red bumps(which hesitated to come up).I am still using the Cetaphil and BP5%.My face looked as if someone has painted a primer on it,it is shining.

Week 3(Dosage increased to 30mg twice a day)

Well, yesterday was the end of my week3.My lips were chapped right from the beginning of the dosage(week1).My face felt tight which often restricted me from giving any expression(I felt difficult to even smile)From week3 my dosage of Isotroin was increased from 20mg twice a day to 30mg twice a day.I started feeling better.But, there were some symptoms of new zits developing on my face and old bumps which had developed last week were still the same size(they were just stable  )My cheek area and c

week2 on Isotretnoin

Though my whiteheads have disappeared,some zits have developed on my face,say some 5 .And the rest of the zits are the same(getting neither better nor worse).My skin is red with shrinked pimples which haven't disappeared,but have gone small in size which seem to grow back again in future :'(

Week 1 of Isotroin

So, it is my week 1 on Isotroin.My derm recommended me to be on 20mg(twice a day) for the first 15days.I was also given Azithromycin 250mg along with this.Azithromycin and Isotroin are good supplements when taken together.I was told to take Azithromycin 4times per week for 4weeks.And it was my first day on medication.Being,aware of the side effects, I am taking this drug.I hope my acne ,which has been daunting since 7years gets cured .I am sick of hiding from friends, relatives, abstaining from

1 week before Isotroin

I started using Cetaphil gentle face cleanser and then applied benzoyl peroxide 5% gel in the morning and evening .Though my pimples were the same,but I could see that few bumps were disappearing.I felt refreshed because of the cleanser and also felt less itchy because of BP 5%.My face started scaling.I was taking this in a positive way, that my acne affected skin is falling down giving rise to new skin.I noticed that my skin was becoming a bit smooth.This is how my face looked like at the end o

how my face was before

Generally Derms claim that diet doesn't cause any acne.But, in my case, I don't know, I felt that my diet caused my acne.Whenever, I eat oil/fatty foods like Pizza,manchurian,chicken,the very next day hundreds of zits from nowhere accumulate on my face and daunt me like hell.It looks like as if someone has glued a cardboard full of zits on my cheek and forehead area.Right now, my whole face is red with full of lessions and white heads on the zits.I feel like running away from the world.Im hiding
