Well, it has been over 2 months and 24 days, so almost 3 months on Accutane. Surprisingly, my skin is not as great as I thought it would be by this point. I have a cluster of acne of my right cheek and still many deep ones along my jaw line, and a couple of my forehead. On my left cheek there is no acne, and it's the first time that I can actually swipe my hand across by cheek and feel semi-smoothness with no acne, just many scars. My skin has for sure improved, but there is so much scaring, I have tiny ice-pick scars all over my face, so I still don't feel pretty because my makeup doesn't cover up grooves in my cheeks, I think I'm going to need post-accutane scar treatment for sure. the bills just never end with acne...
Well, I am confident going into month 4, I really think this will be the month that makes the most difference like people say.
I am not wanting to get off accutane, I love having dry hair, it's awesome. I don't have to shower everyday because greasy hair doesn't exist. I hate the dry nose though, it's worse than lips. It's so dry in my nose that it's painful at times and no matter what, if I blow my nose some blood comes out..which, I know, is totally nasty, but there is no way around it. I think Vaseline has helped a little.
I noticed these past 2 weeks my face has gotten dry. Before it was just not greasy, but not really DRY. Now I need to put more lotion on than normal..ehh...oh and my back pain has still been going off and on, sometimes my low back is just in SO much pain, I walk around like an old person and then the next day it's all fine and dandy. well, yeah. that's all for now. peace.
