Starting week 5... Oh man.
WELL.. good news: Those cheek pimples aren't pimples anymore, just red spots. Woohoo!
bad news: I have some sort of reaction on my lips to something and they are now inflamed and peeling and bubbly. That sounds disgusting.. but it is. I mean, it's not as extremely noticeable as I FEEL like it is (I think because the lips are so sensitive I feel like there are bumps and bubbles all over), but it is soooo uncomfortable. I thought for a bit it could be herpes and went to the derm today and he looked at it and immediately said it was an eczematous allergic reaction and asked me what I use on my lips. I use aquaphor and vaseline... which I've been using for months. But he gave me a prescription for pure vaseline and for fucibet cream and hopefully, ugh, HOPEFULLY this goes away quickly. I believe that he knows what he's talking about, but it's bizarre to think it's an allergic reaction. I'm not usually allergic to anything. But maybe this isotretinoin is just messing with me. I googled pictures of cheillitis and this seems like an extreme version of that, but it came literally in a day. Yesterday I noticed it and today it just got way worse. BUMMER!!!!
Any similar stories with awful lip experiences??? I'm going to go search some blogs for info/lifter-uppers...
