I don't have anything to report about my Accutane experience so far, but one thing I realized I never mentioned in my previous posts was a report about the current state of my skin in the months leading up to Accutane. In the past two months I have had 10-15 cysts on my face, all on my chin with the exception of one small one on my forehead which is very random for me. I get most of these injected with cortisone shots to try to prevent scarring. I've also had strange breakouts on my right cheek, not cystic, but somewhat unusual for me. I very rarely have pimples on my back or chest (like a few tiny one's in a year), so in the past they haven't been an area of concern for me. My skin has been unusually bad for the last few months, but perhaps there's a silver lining in that it pushed me to finally try accutane!
I'll report back in a few days when I start to feel some of the Accutane effects.
