EEEEKKK! Okay I took the plunge and posted some of my pictures... I am nervous about doing this cause what if someone I knows sees them?! But if they are looking through a website for acne, obviously they prolly have it too, so who really cares right!! I was still too shy to post the pictures of my body acne though, those ones I will keep to myself thanks... I think you can see the pictures in the accutane gallery or from my member info page...

My skin: the two new guys on my chin have come to the surface one had a head. So yes I popped it, but was super gentle hopefully it won't do too much damage. The cyst on my cheek never surfaced fully but there is still a mark and it is still pretty tender. I also have some new little zits on my neck... AND I have itch marks on the side of my face by my ear : I must be scratching my face in my sleep!!! So I am gonna try to remember to put lotion on there before bed see if I stop scratching. ( I don't know what else it could be from)

Side effects: The skin around my nose is really dry, my lips are super chapped but nothing that aquaphor and my aveda lip saver can't handle... I have been trying to drink a lot of water since this stuff is sooo drying but lately the water at my house has smelly super fishy, and I can't drink it without wanting to gag!!! If this keeps up I am going to have to buy bottled water: something I try to not do ever...

weird stuff: the rash from my watch is still there, but does seem better.

ah i feel the same way- i didn't want to post pics at first, but you have a good idea saying that if they're on this website then they must be having problems too. um i like the blog, the personal problems are kind of similar to mine (wanting to hibernate for 6 months until skin is clear, then returning to school) <-- that would be awesome. anyways keep posting about accutane. p.s. have you tried using birth control?[right now im doing an edited version of dans regimen, but if it doesnt work im trying birth control and last resort - accutane.]

Yes, I have tried birth control> I have been on it since I was 13 -- for my acne. I take ortho tri cyclen which is supposed to be for severe acne, so I don't even want to know what my skin would look like if I did not use it!

I tried ortho tri cyclen to control my acne also, it made it 10139752307624670 times worse! My dr couldn't belive how much worse it got when I was on it. She switched me to Yasmin and it helped tons!!!! Also Neutrogena Acne System (when I'm not on Accutane) is AWESOME!
