Ok so i kinda wanted to make a progress diary of my experience with accutane. to help others/myself i suppose so that what i go through others and myself dont feel so isolated.
well i should start at the beginning lol.
- im 15 years old had acne since year 5 (around 10) because of damn puberty (thanks puberty your real nice) but it wasnt "acne" as such it was more a few pimple here and there but of course to me being the innocent little 5th grader it was awkward being the only one.
-acne got bad around year 6-start or year 7 and we bought Cetaphil (which i still use and is very good ) but needed something stronger. started to get acne on my back and chest so went to dermatologist who perscribed minocycline with a combo of differin and benzac as well as a few different creams
-was on and off that for three years in year 10 i finally decided to take accutane.
- on 20mg to start with
-it took so long to decide to take the medication because of course as other people would know- loooong daunting list of sideeffects that kinda scared m + i get really bad ezcema sometimes so i didnt wanna be covered in it.
well im currently on my 3rd day of accutane and my face inst too bad because i was on mincycline so im hoping the IB wont be too bad. the medication is mainly to help with my back acne which has left a few scars so hopefully it will be ok. Anyway not really any side effects so far just a few pimples on my forehead and one near my nose. i dont know about my back as i cant see it properly lol.
anyway when did you guys start experiencing side effects? i know its only day three so i didnt expect much but i just want to know
i shall try enter stuff once a week hopefully :3 i would add pictures but i dont have access to a camera at the moment that doesnt totaly glare out my skin making me look pale :/
ah well lets see how i go.
oh by the wayy my name is emily. minor detailll
