Day 93

Just for the updates.. so over the last few days my acne did improve..I also started using retina A...however in last 1 week my skin has taken a sudden turn and all of a sudden I am breaking out again..I finally thought I am making some progress and then this happens.. anyways I will try to keep the blog updated.. it's just that my heart breaks everytime I write  the same negative update.. still waiting for that one positive update that I can give to everyone.. if hell is real then it's here  

Day 50

Skin still bad.. I think I am going to do next update only if I see some positive improvement..thr is no point is updating the blog with the negative effects.. let's hope I make some positive update soon.

Day 49

4 active spots on face and increase in hair loss.. I am losing around 20 strands of hair in a day

Day 48

Still getting small little red bumps on my face which make the overall texture of my skin pretty bad.. so I am completing 7 weeks tomorrow and 2.5 weeks on dapsone.. I am emotionally and mentally more stable now.. I don't think my face has changed at all in past 7 weeks.. if I compare it has got a little worse.. let's hope for some good results in upcoming weeks..

Day 46

Got few more tiny pimples..they are slight red..I feel my skin is more dry and my red marks are more prominent today..I have like 15 of them so it's pretty hard looking at them like this.. I am feeling a lot tired since yesterday.. honestly I give up.. I don't think it's working.. I don't care what happens..I think I should just accept it as my fate... 

Day 45

It's been 1.5 months!! Phew... I feel like it took forever for me to get here.. i really need to work on my emotional issues .. anyways I tried a little experiment.. I tried to take 20 mg and 10 mg on alternate days.. I noticed that everytime I take 20 mg my skin gets a little worse.. so I have decided to stick to 10 mg.. I am still getting breakouts.. I feel a little better emotionally.. although I do panic randomly sometimes.. it's like all I need a small random stupid reason and it triggers m

Day 43

My face hurts all the time.. :(.. it's like I can feel my face...my stupid skin is so sensitive to sun..I go out for like 15 min and I get PLE lesions.. I have got so many tiny red bumps on my face..I had the same issue last month and my derm had prescribed me some hydrocrotisone cream for 3 days which had helped a lot.. I want to use that again but I read online that it should not be used for more than 7 days.. I think I need to go back to Doctor..this is so fucking hard..  . I frequently upda

Day 41

My face is getting just worst and worst..I hate this..I don't think I can handle the IB part..I don't want to get out of my bed..I don't want to stop accutane because that is my only way out but it sure isn't easy..I hate what acne is doing to my life.. it's ruining me and my self confidence...

Accutane week 5

So I have completed my week 5 on accutane.. I feel as if time has freezed.. and low dose accutane is like slow poison :P..you don't know if it going to work or not and you just hope for things to start getting better.. anyways I have got few more little pimples pop on my face.. I am on my period so that could be one of the reason.. but my face does look messed up... Although the new pimples are less inflamed and small...there may be a slight improvement in my marks.. I am not sure..I might be ju

Just blabbering

I am so messed up.. I am not sure if it's the accutane or if I was already depressed .. but I am definitely not in a good state of mind.. it feels weird writing personal stuff on this site but it gives an outlet to my feelings.. I was having a discussion with a guy today and he mentioned how looks are important in relationships and the thing is I have stopped feeling beautiful after I had the bad breakout and I was left with all the red marks on my face. It made me wonder if I will be alone for

4 week update

So I officially completed 1 month mark yesterday.  I visited my derm and he decided to keep me on 10mg dose.. my face is more red and I was seeing some improvement in my marks before but they seem to be more red now.. I have got dry Patches on my face..I am not sure if it is eczema or not..my derm said it is due to sun sensitivity and he had prescribed me a topical steroid cream for 3 days.. he has also changed my night cream to dapsone.. overall I had lot of small pimples on my face past week..

3 week update - Am I going crazy? @[email protected]

So I am back from my 2 week vacation and I have returned with no new spots . So that's a win win for me :).. I had a Terrible lifestyle in last two weeks.. anyways no major change in my pimple or spots.. I have had few small pimples but they are either gone or visible only when you get really close to my face..I am following the same skin care routine I followed last week When I started accutane I wasn't even sure it will show any results since I had less active breakouts but huge number of

2 week update

Quick update on my skin - not much has changed in last 15 days although I am getting few tiny whiteheads and bumps on my face. My lips are a little dry. I am on a 2 week vacation and I am eating out a lot and putting a lot of makeup on my face..my sister is in hospital so I stayed with her for few days. My lifestyle is pretty bad these days and I am hoping I don't get more breakouts when I am through this..I still have 7 more days to go.. the thing that sucks the most is red marks that are lef

Day 9 on accutane

I am basically on Day 9 of my Accutane journey. I haven't really noticed any changes in my acne marks. They are still dark red. i haven't got any new pimple as such but i already had few tiny pimples on my face which have now gone red and overall the texture of my face has deteriorated.

I have been drinking atleast 2 ltrs of water daily since i started Accutane and
