Today is day 10 and I finished a pack. Well so far this is how it is going. I have noticed a significant improvement in my rosacea symptoms. I am not burning or tingling anymore. My skin is a little on the dry side and pink.
The initial flare that I had of the seb derm is actually peeling away and is no longer inflamed. I think it may be too soon to say I'm defeating this, but I am having high hopes. I was so overjoyed when I threw my first box away. This means that I have been on for ten days, and no side effects have been too bad. Only time will tell if I can adapt to this.
My derm wants me to go up to 20 mg a day if I wish. I'm getting dry on 10 a day so I feel that may be too strong for my condition. I would hate to mess something up that is starting to go well. My face has looked the clearest it has been in about 6 months. The residual pinkness and flushing from my prior breakouts bother me, but they aren't nearly as bad. I was originally worried that the accutane would cause my rosacea to go out of control, it still could happen but knock on wood.
