Day 5 accutane.



July 17 - Day 5

For someone who's been dealing with acne since the 3rd grade (I didn't even think it was possible), getting made fun of all the time, even by her own friends-I think I'm ready to be done.

I'm 14, and I know it's young to be starting a harsh medication like accutane, but this really was my last resort.

So, anyway, this morning, I took my 7th? pill.

Up until yesterday, my face was slowly starting to clear up and a few of my scars have actually slightly faded (Haha, my sister asked me if I was wearing makeup last night, and when I said no, she was shocked! BEST feeling ever!), but this morning I woke up with a few new cysts on my chin and around my nose. BOOOOO. :wacko:

Oh, my lips aren't too dry yet (Always have aquaphor handy! haha), but my face is starting to feel a bit stiff. And the sides around my nose are a LOT more sensitive than usual...

What I'm really afraid of is the initial breakout. I really hope mine isn't too terrible, as I was taking antibiotics for a month for my acne up until the morning of day one, so we'll just have to wait and see.(:
