- Accutane day 17th on 20 mg
- Still having my IB; 4 cysts and 3 whiteheads
- Red, burning, itchy areas (possibly due to the differin gel)
It's my 17th day today, I'm actually counting down the days until my massive breakout might stop. I went to visit my parents this weekend and planning to stay here until Wednesday, when I have exams for school. I am not going outside at all!!! I just left my boyfriend all alone in our house; don't want him to see me like this I feel so sad for him, he might as well be thinking what the * am I doing with this ugly girl (me).
I have read a lot of blogs here on acne.org and the weird thing I have encountered is that most of the IB is around the mouth and the chin area, as mine! I've got 4 cysts there, very painful ones, and some around my nose.
One thing I really need some advice about is Differin gel. I was prescribed Differin gel along my Accutane. My skin really hurts so badly that I've talked it over with my mother. She thinks I should stop the Differin gel, which I'm going to do for at least one week to see if my skin feels better. She stated that my skin is already quite thin and I might make it worse by using Differin gel.
My skin is flaking, it feels itchy and on some places soooo red and burning; especially where I have put the differin gel. Today I put a lot of moisturizing crÃ¨me on my red and burning patches (oh oh my derm is going to kill me, she can't see me though!!)
My breakout is still ongoing while on my Isotretinoin instructions say that the IB might last 7 to 10 days. So I'm afraid my massive breakout is due to the Differin gel? Does anyone have had the same experience and possibly some advice?
Take care everyone.
