I have been on Accutane for two weeks now and the second week was not as pleasant as the first.
My lips are incredibly dry, that started about mid week. My skin on my chin is starting to dry out and peel a little bit, and any spots with current blemishes are drying out around the edges and peeling. Makeup of course is almost making it worse because the peeling is much more evident. If anyone knows of any makeup tricks PLEASE fill me in!!
You would think that with all the drying out of my skin that my new pimple free week last week would follow into this week...exact opposite!! I don't think I've ever broken out this bad this fast!! My chin is the worst followed by my cheeks. The white and black heads are out of control and there is nothing I can do about it!!
Of course I just can't help but pick and squeeze...I know it's the worst thing I can do but seriously...if you saw these things you would understand (as I'm sure most of you do!!).
This week has been very trying and I've been somewhat depressed and quite upset. But, I knew that this would happen (although I heard that it's usually later in treatment that you break out) and I have to suck it up and deal with it for the greater good!!
Four months is gonna be a long time...2 weeks down, 10 to go.
