Day 7 - 1 Week Down, 19 to go!



Hello everyone! My first milestone! Week 1 was no big deal and I hope it stays this way! However, upon reading all of the blogs, I have a feeling it won't stay this way! Whatever happens, I am determined to remain positive and to face these challenges gracefully.

Skin status - peeling, flaky nose, a few big cysts which have popped, but remain red and swollen. All still easily covered by makeup. My overall skin texture looks better and I look more vibrant. I have dry lips, but certainly manageable with moisturizing lip balm. I do not discern a difference in my body skin, except for being a tiny bit itchy on my scalp. My eyes are still a bit dry, but I just use drops.

Other side effects - none that I can quantify.

We were asked to go to St. Maarten with friends today in April and I am afraid we will have to say no because of our sun sensitivity while on Accutane. That stinks, but it is what it is.

Husband update - Day 2
