well mygosh i haven't been here in a while... i did end up getting my prescription from my last post 4 days late. but its ok..

things are going great :(

i am really happy, i am not breaking out like i used to..sometimes i still get a pimple, but then it goes away... so for i would say my skin is 75 percent clearer..the 25 percent is just that my skin is dry looking and tired without lotion , and i have marks..which i hope fade away..i have this cream for marks my doctor gave me before i was on accutane, idk if i should use it..i'll ask on my next derm appt. which is on the 14th.. time flys.

oh yah, the rest of my body has gotten very dry.. i dont really like putting lotion on all the time, i usually do it after i shower..but i really need to start doing it like 3x a day.

i haven't experienced much side effects besides dry skin, my lips aren't horrific..

i really love how my skin isn't oily like it used to be. today i was sitting and just thinking about how my skin used to look, and all the things i tried.. i'm so thankful for accutane. it has really helped alot, and i hope my skin turns out totally clear by the time i'm done.

i hope everyone else is doing well too, and or does start to.

and i want to let everone know who has struggled with acne that there is a light at the end of the tunnel and it is just the patience and faith that will get you the light. with or without acne, we are all beautiful, in ways we do not know.

thats all for now.

Hey!! I'm glad things are working out for you! You;'re almost done!!:)Just a little Q: I also have like 4 to 5 pimples on my face but i've had red marks since the initial breakout in month 1. they don't seem 2 be fading away and i know that once i stop breaking out they'll probably heal by themselves. But Im a very a impatient person and once i'm done with accutane i'm gonna do something about it like chempical peels, laser treatment, IPL or whatever. Which one would u suggest? and r u gonna do that too or just wait and see..??

thankssss =)i know how you feel, some of my marks are still on my face...but i think they will eventually go away, i know that you are not allowed to do laser treatments,chemical peels,etc., during accutane and at least 6 months after because the skin is still really sensitive..but i suggest you ask your derm for a cream first, i'm sure they'll know better than me hehe, because some marks may stay permanently. the cream my doctor gave me a while ago before i went to a derm for accutane is calledHydroquinone USP, and it is 4%It really did help and it made the marks i used to have go away, but i stopped using everything when my acne went really bad.On my next appointment I'm going to take this cream with me to ask my derm if it is ok to use..i hope that helped a bit, and your marks clear up =)
