Day 11... up & down



Just wanted to write a quick update... Even if no one is reading this, it helps me feel like the time is passing! I'm on Day 11. Lots of side effects... I didn't expect them to kick in so quickly. The crazy itching is much, much better, don't know if that's due to the steroid cream from the doctor, or the fish oil I've been taking, or if my skin just needed to acclimate. My stomach's been pretty upset, but I have no idea if that's from the accutane. Also I have been super tired and haven't felt nearly as social as usual, but again, it's too soon to know if that's from accutane or not.

My skin is doing okay - not as clear as the first week, but still clearer than usual. Redness is a little better too. I wonder when I'm "out of the woods" for the initial breakout? From reading other posts on this site, it seems like some people break out all the way through. My dermatologist told me I would probably clear up in the third month. She said she looks for people to be clear for at least two months before ending their course. So, fingers crossed for that!
