16th day on Accutane

Karen L.


Hi everyone,

I have been reading blogs and messages posted on Acne.org for more than a month, and seriously been addicted to this site since I started my Accutane journey 16 days ago.

Every day I try to find hopefull stories that cheer me up during bad breakout days, which is working! It's quite hard to imagine myself without acne, I can't even remember when I had perfect skin.

Some facts;

- Acne sufferer since 12 years old, I am now 22 years of age.

- Due to monitoring my diet (eating healthy and drinking loads of water and purrifying thee) my acne became very mild.

- Used the antibiotic minocycline; which cleared my skin completely during the course, however worsened my acne after. It left me with terrible cysts acne.

- 20 mg of Accutane (Isotretinoin Actavis) for 5 months.

I'm currently on my 16th day now and I'm not quite sure if my initial breakout is near it's end, I'm trying not to get my hopes up too high. I haven't felt this ugly as in ever with my IB.

Well I hope everyone has a great weekend! And I'll keep my fingers crossed for everyone on accutane.

X Karen
