DAY 25!!!!

SSMIKE

157 views

Hey all who visit!!! ( But may not comment)

DAY 25 of my accutane treatment,

In 5 days I am going to be upping my dose to 20mg!!!!!

I know it is still low but I am still a little scared. I would just love for all of this to be over and not to have to worry or think about it anymore.

I would say that my acne has definetly gotten better my skin is still really dry and red in the t-zone though and there is still acne on my cheeks but not really anywhere else.

Does anyone have any suggestions to bring down redness on the face? that is my biggest issue at the moment that my skin is red and flaky. I just bought some aveeno but not sure if anyone else has any suggestions

Also I take fish oil capsules daily and heard vit e is also good to take on accutane wondering the thought process behind this.

TOO EVERY OUT THERE TAKING ACCUTANE< KEEP ER GOIN BY SPRING WE"LL ALL SMILING AND FEELING GREAT!

Hi. I'm on day 15 of accutane, 40 mg (and I weigh 125 lbs). It seems like each doctor has their own preferred method of prescribing this stuff. As long as we see results! My face is really red too. I don't know if it has to do with increased blood flow to the area or what? If it's really red and burning, I've read about some people icing their face. I haven't tried this myself. A cool cloth might help too. The redness does go away, eventually, so I've been told. I started taking Fish Oil too. It's suppose to help with making the sebum less sticky, as well as many hormonal benefits. Vitamin E helps with skin healing. I've also read good things about zinc, msm, vit c, and your b vitamins. There has been some good discussion on this website about these supplements. Keep on, keeping on!
