4 weeks on Accutane



Tomorrow marks my 4th week on Accutane. I had a blood test taken and a prego test yesterday and have an appointment with the Derm tomorrow. Since the 2nd week of Tane I haven't had any other side effects except dry skin and lips. I have been using 3-4 different chap-sticks and have found that the Aquaphor seems to work best and lasts the longest. My face still has pimples but the blackheads on my chin and nose seem to have vanished. I also recommend NO PICKING! Every time i pop or pick anything on my face it seems to last soo much longer and has a harder time healing, not like my skin used to. I also have some red marks of my face from previous pimples but i am sure over time those will also fade.

Claravis 40mg 1x a day.

Hey there sparklebright! I just wanted to give you one of my tips for dry lips: go to shoppers drug mart, or any drug store near you and ask the clerk to point you in the direction of Vitamin E oil. This stuff works like a charm and is soo very good for your lips! I use it religously while being on tane and it's help so much!
