So, I survived my first week on Accutane! So far, nothing has really changed. No side effects, yet, and hopefully ever. I'm assuming it's because I am only taking 20mg of dosage this month. Actually, my lips have been quite chapped and dry lately, but I'm unsure if it's because of the cold weather here in Canada and my "lip-biting" habit--more like ripping/peeling the first layer of the skin subconsciously. Gross, I know.
I definitely noticed that my forehead cleared up a bit. Just a few spots left here and there. However, I broke out around my jaw and chin area. (My acne is not "hormonal"). So no comment on that; it's not too bad anyway. Oh, and I'm not sure why, but the blackheads around my nose area are more prominent that ever! They look like large disgusting pores. Although, I do think that the Accutane is actually protruding them out of my skin. The blackheads look a bit like it is more above the surface of my skin. I will update after at the end of November for my "Month One" results. Unfortunately, I've misplaced the SD card that contained pictures of my skin at the moment, so I can't post them. EH. Overall, everything is going swell! One question. Does Accutane help fade scars (red/dark spots)?
