I feel like I'm getting all my side-effects under control!!
I celebrated my birthday about a week ago, my boyfriend took me to disneyland so I was off accutane for about 3 days (I knew I couldn't be in the sun/dry air while on active accutane) and I really didnt have a problem at all!
I use aquaphor like no other. At nighttime I spread it on my face and it stops allll peeling from happening. I also use it on my lips. If I ever get cracks(I haven't gotten one for a bit now) I use this stuff called Bag Balm. Its in a green container and I got it at Walgreens. Seriously AMAZING!
Acne wise, I still have dots and my face is SUPER red. I cant really distinguish which is acne and which is red marks at this point because my whole face is also more flushed.
I developed a rash, but my doctor gave me a really strong cream to use against it and it cured it all! My dermatologist also suggested I move my dosage up to 60 from 40, but I said no to this month because it is finals week(hell week) and i have a lot of stress from all that. I am thinking about doing that next month, but I am terrified about the side effects flaring up!!
I really don't have bad acne right now, its just lots of red and some pimples. (making my coverup not match as well -__- )
I hope everyone is doing well!!!
p.s. girls! do you have a foundation that works well for you???? Right now I use Clinique but it really isnt matching due to the redness
