Well, It's finally the day I get started.
A little history-
My name is Allie, I am 24 years old and I have been dealing with hormone related cystic-acne for about 10 years. When I was 14 I got on accutane for the first time and I was on it for 5 months. It worked for a couple of years but in my late teens and early 20's my cysts came back with a vengeance. They only occur on my chin or right about my top lip. I have never in my life had a blemish on my face about my mouth. It's very strange. My reason for getting on accutane is that my cysts are not small and they are extremely painful and they are constantly around. The scarring is even worse then the actual bumps.
I work as a professional cheerleader and having a messed up face really hinders me from feeling as confident as I would like. SO, here I am...1 pill deep.
I'm thinking I will start increasing my water intake and start using the Carmex or Aquaphor on my lips tomorrow. Can anyone make some suggestions on if I should be moisturizing my face during this process? Is it best to let it dry out?
I don't even remember my first round of accutane so I would love people telling me what to expect.
