Introduction-- starting accutane!



Hi! I am a fifteen year old female who has been dealing with acne since I was nine years old. I have pretty oily skin, red marks on my cheeks, blackheads on my nose, a couple of pimples on my forehead, a couple of pimples on my chin, lots of pimples on my cheeks and jawline, and a couple of under the skin cysts on my left jawline. My right cheek is definitely worse than my left cheek, but they are both pretty bad. I have tried almost every over the counter product, and other prescription pills and creams. My derm put me on 40 mg 3X a week. Based on what i've been reading here, it seems like a pretty low dosage. I took my first pill last night and of course I haven't seen any side affects yet! Here is my regimen:


Wash with Aveeno Clear Complexion

Moisturize with cetaphil cream

Moisturize with Aveeno tinted moisturizer

Neutrogena clear complexion makeup

Neutrogena clear complexion mineral powder


Wash with Aveeno Clear Complexion

Moisturize with cetaphil cream

I use Vaseline on my lips & tresemè shampoo and conditioner

I am 5'7 and 120 lbs

Here we go!!:cool:
