Day 14

Hey guys, i'm new to all this, I thought i'd start an accutane blog from the start of week 2, seeing as my derm told me that the effects would not kick in until about week 2/3. Anyway, side effects so far have been slightly dry skin and lips but nothing I can't deal with. I'm using cetaphil gentle cleanser and moistursing lotion after that which i strongly recommend for dry skin. I work out in the gym at least 4 times per week and play a lot of football, so I was worried about the joint pains and muscle pains. However, i've been to the gym 4/5 times a week since taking accutane and have only noticed a slight pain in my lower back. This is nothing I can't handle and certainly won't stop me working out :(

Acne-wise...i've not really seen much of a difference. I never had severe acne, i'm probably moderate just now, no big cysts, a few whiteheads and a few big red pimples and blackheads etc. Anyway, I have just woke up this morning with 3 big whiteheads after shaving yesterday (i'm sure i get whiteheads from shaving) I popped them all, i know i shouldn't be popping them but I can;t help it lol. Anyway, i'm really hoping for some positive results, i've tried everything, nothing works. don't mean to sound like a sob story but acne really does ruin your life, normal people don't understand. I've been held back from going to social events, going on dates etc ahhh :doubt:

ANyways, sorry to put you all on a downer :( , i'm gonna update daily so check out my blog dudes!

Peace x

Moderate like yours. I have no active ones now though because of accutane I'm sooo thankful!
yeah i still get spots fairly regularly, but ones that i do get are kind of bumps under the skin that just go red then go away again or little whiteheads which can be dealt with easy enough
