Arghhhh. No more cysts, but these tiny bumps are so stubborn! I don't understand!

Side effects: NONE. Well, almost. My skin is "dry" but to me it just looks normal compared to the oil slick I was before starting Accutane. Other than that, nothing. No nose bleeds, joint pain, eczema, depression, or even chapped lips. Chapstick does the job fine; I haven't used Aquaphor since the beginning of my second month.

My Florida vacation was great! Wore lots of sunblock and my hat and had loads of fun. I got a bit burnt on my tummy but it's since turned into a tan without flaking/peeling, so that's good. I can't wait til I can finally get WAXED though!!! Ughhhh that's one thing I really miss!

Getting blood taken tomorrow (crossing my fingers that they're open on Memorial day); derm appointment is on Tuesday. I've developed a cold over the past few days and today I was (and still am) so sick and constantly dizzy that I had to leave work early... and I've never once called out or left early or even been late to work since starting this job in August. I wonder if that'll affect my blood work, but I'm not *too* worried about it.

I'll update again after I see my derm :cool:
