- Accutane day 19 on 20 mg.
- No new acne, 3 cysts from a couple of days ago. .
- No real side effects apart from dry lips.
Every morning when I wake up, I lay in bed hoping that when I take a look in the mirror my face miraculously is acne free. It takes me ages to get out of bed and actually wash my face in the morning, because I'm too frightful of what I might see .
This morning when washing my face I noticed that my skin is very very smooth on my cheeks and forehead, these are places where I never break out. My chin and nose are still quite bumpy apart from the three cysts but I guess from clogged pores. The three cysts from a few days ago don't hurt anymore and shrunk to half their sizes overnight.
Well, a few days ago I posted in my blog about the differin gel which was concerning me, it made my skin dry out even more, causing red burning patches on my face. I stopped on my 17th day and I'm feeling a lot better now. Still have a very red looking neck where I put the differin so I called my derm's office today just to let her know I stopped taking it and I wanted to speak to her as my next appointment won't be due until the 3rd of march, Iâ€™m frightened the redness wonâ€™t heal. I got her assistant, what an annoying person!! I forgot how bad customer service is here in the Netherlands. It's absolutely horrifying how people treat you even though you are the customer and you are in need of some advice.
Last December I was in New York, and I was absolutely blown away by how great the customer service is. Everybody is so friendly and taking the time to assist you properly! Here when you have an issue, they say it's your problem and just deal with it. Anyway my derm's assistant was talking to me as if I was wasting her precious time with my unimportant question and how dare I even ask to talk to my derm (who is a md she said which doesnâ€™t have time to talk to me). After complaining to her and asking her for advice she finally gave in and told me I would be called back on Thursday by an INTERN, great can't wait
Ps used the vichy foundation today, and no irritation whatsoever.
