Day 58. Beginning of month three!

Derm appointment was this morning! A few notes:

1. My blood work came back "perfect," lucky me.

2. I told her my skin was getting very very flaky, especially on my upper lip/under my nose, and on my eyelids. "Yeah, I can see that" she said. "We're sucking all of the oil out of you. It's only going to get worse. Much worse!" And then I swear she cackled. -_________-

3. So basically, there is no hope for me in the foundation department since just keeping my skin moisturized is going to be my new 24/7 mission. She gave me a bunch of free CeraVe samples: cleanser, moisturizer, and a heavier night time moisturizer. I'm going to try the day moisturizer before I go to work tonight. I don't like having flaky skin. It just looks so unprofessional.

4. Those dry patches on my arms and hands? Yeah, it's full-blown eczema, she said. I didn't even realize it was that bad. She wrote me a script for a cortisone cream to stop the itch. I almost didn't even fill it, since I'm scared of how much it's going to cost. And I'm broke. :/ Oh well, it's going on credit for now (I know, bad bad bad habit to start. Don't follow my example).

5. I'm staying on 40 mg/day of Amnesteem. One pill with my biggest meal of the day.

That's about it. On to month three... shit's about to get serious.

Is funny how different each experince is from person to person with accutane. I have been tracking your blog since we have been in treatment about the same time.....and I have no dry patches and my face is not even that dry. I moisterize twice a day and I still have to blot the oil in the morning. I'm on 80 mg a day....I'm not sure why I won't dry...My derm is super surprise and reading your blog makes me think if there's something wrong with my skin lol Or are my oil glands that HUGE that they won't shrink.... :- The only thing that is dry is my lips...WARNING TIM (also down there.....) :doubt: I wish you the best....Good Luck! Have you tried cetaphil moisterizer? That's what I use....
