day 42

I have to say...I feel like I'm looking pretty damn good. No bumps, no redness, I can almost say my skin as soft as a baby's ass. I don't know that I've ever really said that. The texture of my face is just so soft and smooth.

Still experiencing a tiny bit of dryness on my chin, but I throw a little polysporin on in the morning, and I'm good all day.

It is taking quite a while for the couple that I had on my neck to go away. I think that the skin on the neck is just a bit more sensitive and harder to heal, again I've been using polysporin to get them to go away faster.

Other than a little bit of dryness on my chin, I'm not having any other side effects.

OH! I also got my period this week, and no breakout leading up to it! That used to be my biggest issue. I would always break out before my period, by the time everything went away the cycle began again.

I am extremely happy with my progress and the process. My little bitchy, whiney moaney shit in the first month or so was me being a baby. I would totally do it all over again to get these kind of results, and I'm not even finished with month two.

I really hope this will be the last of my fight with acne....I'm too old for this shit!

Day 42 and you've got nothing active, I am jealous!! I am gonna as my derm to up my dose! I am on day 52 and I have 3 BIG ACTIVE guys. You are totally spot on about not picking, I am so over it as well! SO how are your side effects on 80mg? I am rocking the 40mg and notice some, but nothing terrible. What are yours like??

Yeah, picking is a horrible thing to do. Makes them soooo much worse!I have to admit, I was terrified of starting off at 80mg. I though my side effects and initial breakout would be terrible on 80mg, but so far it hasn't been anything I can't handle.The first couple of weeks I had pretty bad headaches, but they went away, until now. I've had a headache the last 3 days, but I'm not sure if it's accutane related or allergy/sinus related.I had a rash on my hands/arms for about a week, but as soon as I started lotioning up right out of the shower, it went away.I rode my bike 20 miles Saturday and feel absolutely fine, no joint pain.I can honestly say my only real side effect now is a touch of dry skin on my chin, but I put polysporin on it in the morning and it's fine throught the day.I used to have to blot my face every hour or so to maintain the oily complexion, I can go all day without doing it now! Anyhoot....what kind of makeup are you using...because it looks great!!! One of these days I have to figure out how to get pictures up to show my progress.
