OK so today is my 5th day on the stuff. still not much to report yet.
My lips have been a little bit more dryer then usual and underneath my nose has been a lil raw like how it would feel after blowing your nose a lot after a cold. My face gets a little dry after i run in the morning along with my lips but through out the day while i am working and have my makeup on my face it is still pretty greasy. I have also noticed that my mouth has been a bit dryer then usual, so i am drinking more water then I usually do though i already drink a good amount everyday. But i have not needed to pull out the face moisturizer yet. Starting this week 4 new cyst have developed on my face ugh i hate them they hurt!!! AND they are gross feeling!!!!! I just cant wait till accutane starts doing its job!
I have also made a point to tell pretty much everyone i know that i am on this stuff so A) they know i am aware of my acne and i am taking the most extreme measure to get rid of it and B) so everyone is aware that i am going to be going through some changes physically like flaky face cracking lips and such and so people can watch out for mental changes as well. I dont really like keeping stuff a secret nothing in my life is to personal not to tell everyone I know.
My sister when she was a adolescent had way worse acne then me. I got mine pretty late i started getting cystic acne when i was 17 and now i am 19 and still have it. i was on antibiotics for 2 yr and that cleared me up good but i had to eventually get off it plus i was getting yeast infections from it and that was when i started to break out again beginning of fall 2009. So here i am on the strong stuff! My sister was on accutane when she was 16 and her face cleared up real well her face is so clear and she is 21 now and still has not had a bad break out since i just hope it works as well for me!
