I haven't posted in several days, mainly because not much is happening. I'm learning how to deal with the peeling and dryness (much like I learned to deal with acne and oily skin). If I pile on a bunch of olay moisturizer at night, two layers in the morning, use eye drops every couple hours, and never go anywhere without aquafor, I find I can handle accutane pretty well. It seems the worst of the side effects have calmed down significantly-no more burning or itching skin.
On my nose and forehead, all of the blackheads are gone and my pores have shrunk so much they're pretty much invisible. It's pretty incredible considering how large my pores were before.
My chin and jawline are still trying to clear and I have a lot of red spots left over. Other than that, I'm very happy!
