Starting Accutane on Monday

phsoltis

529 views

On Monday I'm starting Low-dose accutane for my severe seb derm on my face. I also have mild rosacea that seems to flare when the seb derm goes crazy on me. I have tried every topical product :| and finally a dermatologist (I went to Johns Hopkins, I live in the Baltimore Area) offered me the option of 10 mg per day of accutane. Of course it was a pain to get with the i-pledge program.

Mainly, I'm just going to keep a diary of my progress.

Currently, I'm taking an oral anti-fungal(Itra 100mg) twice daily which has cleared my face to almost normal. However, because it can cause liver problems I chose to try accutane out. I don't use too may topicals on my face because it just gets irritated and worse. I find that minimal is best for me.

Morning Routine

Cereve Wash

Afternoon

Cereve Wash or Ovace Face wash as needed (tends to bother my skin if used too much)

Medications

Itraconazole 100 mg twice daily

Ortho Tricyclen-Lo
