Week 2, Day 8 - Dermatologist Visit



So I went to the dermatologist yesterday I had three deep pimples - two I had extracted before and needed to be extracted again and one growing underneath which couldn’t be dealt with yet.

Its painful to get your pimples popped and drained and then injected with cortisone but I think of the fact it will go down much faster and there is reduction in scarring and I just grin and bear the pain. I also thank God that I live right beside my doctor and I can take my swollen face home immediately without a lot of human interaction in the way.

My doctor mentioned that he is going to up the dosage of my Accutane - I was surprised because I am soooooo dry already. But I thought of my weight 60kg which means 60mg of Accutane a day. I am currently on 40mg (Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday) and 80 mg (Monday, Wednesday, Friday) which totals 400mg a week - 60mg a day would be 420mg a week so not that much more.

My skin is peeling and my lips are sooooo dry. So I bought some Ceralip from La Roche-Posay today.

I used it the last two times I was on Accutane and it worked well to provide some relief to my dry lips. But for those who are on Accutane you know that nothing really provides long lasting relief to the dryness one experiences :wacko:
