Well not quite a week, but almost, I'm going to post on Sundays to make my life easier. I have still been taking a 20 mg pill every night after dinner. I have had no stomach issues or any serious side effects yet and hopefully never will. I would not say my acne has gotten worse, but it is different. A few days after taking accutane I broke out in very very tiny bumps on my cheeks. They aren't red and are so tiny that I can only see them in some lighting and at certain angles. I still have them but hopefully they will go away soon. Other than that my acne has been a little better or about the same. I have gotten a couple of new pimples since treatment, but some pimples have come and gone already, which is very quick for me since most of my pimples last for almost a month sometimes. My skin has become a little bit dry, but is still pretty oily. My lips are very dry but I just keep aquaphor on them and they are fine. I'm still washing and moisturizing with cetaphil products and spot treating with Neutogena 2% Salicylic acid gel. I find Salicylic acid to much more gentle than benzoyl peroxide and it works better for me.
Another thing I do that I'm not sure helps much, but definitely doesn't hurt is that every night I put a clean towel over my pillow. I have been doing this for months now and it obviously didn't cure my acne, but maybe if I didn't do it my acne would be worse, who knows. Also since being on accutane I have stopped drinking diet soda or any soda. I've only been drinking water and coffee and trying to drink lots of water.
