5/21 - cream follow up

it's been about 2 months since i last updated my progress. it has been hard to use this cream in a consistant manner. there were a few weeks i completely forgot to use it. Now, i'm trying to get into the habit of using it every day instead of every other day like when i first started. my skin has gotten so much better. i'm not red like i use to be with accutane and my scar redness has gone down. i still have scars but they're not so prominent now. very pleased with my results!

accutane process 12/17

i've hit my 4th month mark and im on my 5th month now. same symptoms; dry skin, dry lips. i do get some joint pain but it's not something serious. I've been blessed that I haven't gotten any side effects. i'm still on 80 mg a day. sometimes i get small dots that want to become pimples but they dont. they're small dots that go away fast. i just have redness and scarring. the dermatologist said the redness will go away after im off the medication. which if by the end of this month im still doin go

accutane process 11/17

i've hit the 3 month mark and now im on my 4th month, close to finishing it. I haven't gotten any pimples under my skin that hurt so much. it's super rare if i get a whitehead and if i do, its a super small dot that goes away in a day, but i've only had like 3 of those in the last 2 months. when i started the 4th month period, they increased my dose to 80 mg a day. For about 2 weeks, my mucus was really dry so my nose felt like it had rocks inside and i would get nose bleeds from it. that's the

accutane process 10/17

it's been officially 2 months now. the left side of my face has gotten better. my right side is still pretty bad. i am happy to say that now it's just scarring that i have. I haven't gotten big whiteheads in weeks. my dose has increased from 40 to 60 mg and the brand im on right now is called absorica. side effects are still the same, dry skin and lips.

accutane process 9/17

okay so i officially reached 1 month on september 07. So far, i still have the same side effects as i did when i started (dry skin and lips).  I honestly think my acne has gotten worse. Since the beginning of september i've noticed that my skin around my worst area (my cheeks)  started getting like scaly skin? im not sure how to explain it but it's like scabs? anyways, it's going away now but my acne is still pretty bad. I know i'm not going to see much change till my 3rd month but it still suck

First Day

Hi! Iveth here. I decided to make this blog about my accutane process in case there's people out there who need to see some experiences to help them make their decision to go on the medication. A little background information, I have cystic acne. I get big bumps that are underneath my skin that hurt A LOT and i also get whiteheads that are really red and hurt as well. I get them on my foreahead, cheeks, and chin. I've struggled with acne for about 5 years but I've always managed to handle it wit
