Hello to anyone reading (if anyone is!).
Today is would be Day 3, but I'm having second thoughts. The first two go arounds I didn't suffer any side effects that I know of except for the dry skin I mentioned, but I suffer from numerous things, such as depression, anxiety, and fibromyalgia. I have terrible joint pain and stiffness, and I'm 23!
After reading more and more about Accutane, I have to wonder if it's a delayed side effect??
While Accutane is pretty cheap (yay socialized health insurance!), especially compared to buying my own skin care products, I'm extremely hesitant and don't feel I have exhausted all other possible options. My boyfriend, The Handsome, is concerned now after reading all of the side effects and asked me to try other OTC options to get my skin under control before I continue with the Accutane.
So I guess that means I need to change the name of this blog!
I have been perusing the forums and came across Laura's Regimen for non-inflamed acne and blackheads. I have a coupla big nasty red ones right now, but other than that I'm pretty "non-inflamed." I'm going to be going to the pharmacy later with The Handsome to buy some products. Going to upload some pics to see if anyone recommends going with the Acne.org Regimen or trying Laura's (a girl's got only so much money to blow on these products at a time!).
I read about some comedogenic ingredients listed on zerozits.com, so I hope to arm myself with a list of forbidden ingredients when I go tonight - here's hoping I find something that works!
