Dosage: 30 mg Claravis
Acne: More cysts on my back, a few on my chin and jawline, one big cyst on my right cheek
Side Effects: Dry lips
All my optimism from last week has turned into discouragement. I don't think lowering my dose to 30 mg was a good thing... I've gone from moisturizing 4-5 times a day to not at all, and I'm back to using Tretinoin cream every night just as I would have before Accutane. I also switched back to an acne scrub from regular face wash. My skin is gradually becoming less dry (and more oily) and the I feel like I have a new break out every time I look in the mirror. Maybe my skin is just taking some time to adjust to the change, but I really, really hope that this doesn't make me backtrack a whole month.
I sure hope next week is better.
