It has been 2 months since I took 1st pill of ROA. Today opened the third package of 10 mg ROA. I could say I am clearing, but at an expense. My hair got thinner. Even my mom noticed, she does my haircut (been years since I have been at barber/hairdresser, altho I wouldnt call them that- just women that cut your hair ). And my hair was super thick, like viking`s, you could port Titanic if you`d make a rope. My skin got super thin too. On forehead, cheeks. As I said previously, on these cold days my face goes numb. And it will only get colder, winter is ahead.
Brought blood results to derm. It was a short meet-up with her, she said we`ll go 4 months probably (not surprised, cause everyone here is 4, 5, 6 months and on higher dosages). She said I shouldnt moisturize at all. AT ALL. "No fattening of the skin." She noticed the flaky lips, but I assured her it could be much worse, cause I did and do use lip balm. I have it under control.
The white pimpes I was usually seeing when waking up are gone now. The area around mouth has calmed down, but my cheeks are still oily. Getting less cysts at jaw line, but there is still a lot of non-inflammed whiteheads, which pile up, or sebaceous filaments as they call them. I just scratched my neck as I was typing here, they do itch! I get some blackheads come off cheeks sometimes too, mainly when washing my face, or just discovering them via itching. My scalp / forehead sometimes itches too, and voila! What was the reason? A hardened blackhead! Sometimes I am glad I dont have to pick them, they come off like that. Many people are worried here, but I had tons of them leave my skin and they dont leave icepick scars. They appear for some other reasons, not sure now which.
I could be doing much better in terms of skin condition if not the unpredictable, severe weather and some other daily stresses I have.
