Dentist + Accutane = NOT fun!



Day 22

Hi guys! Just a quick update. Not much has changed since my last post. I've gotten a few new smallish zits here and there. The weird thing is, they're in places I usually wouldn't break out. One of them, for example, is about an inch under my left eye. I don't think I've ever gotten a zit under my eye in my life, but yet, my chin (which is my typical breakout zone) is doing quite a bit better than usual. Hmm.

So, I went to the dentist today. Let's just say that between my dry, chapped lips, flaking skin and remaining acne around my mouth, it was not a pleasant experience. My dentist is super nice, but my mouth and lips hurt so badly I wanted to cry. And worst of all, one of the stubborn cysts on my chin that has been trying to heal forever and a day started bleeding because of my dentist bumping it with her hand. Ugh. Talk about embarrassing :redface:

I have to go back on January 18 for a filling, and I hope and pray that things will be better by then! I was also happy to hear that my dentist's office is having a bridal event in April with free teeth whitening and facials for all spring and summer 2011 brides! Please, please, please God let me have clear skin by then :D I would love to be able to go enjoy a free facial right before my April 30 wedding!

Have a good evening, everyone!

I was laughing while reading this--one of my worse accutane fears has been that I would have to go to the dentist for some reason. I kept thinking that would be one of the worst things to happen while on accutane!My advice, put vaseline on the corners of your lips and ask the dentist to reapply it for you-he'll understand :)Good luck!
