First Post.. 2Nd Month



I got a late start to creating an accutane blog. Mostly because I wasn't sure if I wanted post and create one while I went through this journey. But after realizing I spend a lot of my free time trolling other blogs, I decided it was probably worthwhile to post as well. Hopefully it'll help someone! A little about me...

I'm a 26 year old woman from New York, and have been struggling with moderate, persistent as all hell acne on and off for six years. I tried self medicating and self treating for the first few years and have been through a few derms before finally "committing" to my current one. I tried all the standard bp washes, multiple antibiotics, ziana, and even a clinical trial before practically begging my derm for accutane. She finally consented and I started it in the beginning of November. I realize it's a late start, but it's probably best I started now because after experiencing the "accutane burn" and exceedingly dry lips, my skin has broken out worse than it ever has before. I plant to post photos soon. I feel itchy and dry and worried about putting so much moisturizer on my already broken out skin. I weigh around 150lbs and this is my second month of 40mg. I'm wondering if I'm still breaking out this bad my derm will up my dose next month.

Anyone else experience a massive break out in the second month? I feel like my skin is 100% worse this month. Very discouraging.
