Home stretch! I've got about a month and a half left of my five month course at 60 mg/ day and things are going well. The cyst on my chin that has REFUSED to go away for almost four months despite four cortisone injections came to a head today! I have never been so excited to see pus before (gross, sorry!) but it is such a relief to have gotten everything out with only a tiny bit of squeezing and no pain. I think it's finally going to go away! The rest of my face is clear and this is pretty amazing to me because my diet has been so poor. I've got a little bit of redness and a little dryness, but it's mild.
I've been working out and my joints are definitely hurting a lot, but I'm alright with that. I'm seeing my derm this week for the final appointment of my course and am not expecting any changes to my dosage. I'm definitely ready to be off this medication and am getting really tired of the dry lips and eyes, but I am very pleased with the progress my skin has made on Accutane.
