4 And A Half Months On Accutane... Progress But Nothing Perfect



Unfortunately my process with Accutane has been far from butterflies and happy thoughts... I have now been on 60 ml and I am still not seeing clear skin. I have Accutane for 6 months and thats it, so I thought by now my skin would be relatively clear with no breakouts. Its still generating new pimples and red spots, my face is a lovely shade of red and I keep getting small rash breakouts!!

I have been able to not have my lips peel/crack by being OCD over how much Aquaphor I apply. I guess everyone at my work and school now think I have a thing for lip shine;)

Other than that, I have already kinda given up on Accutane. My dermatologist even seemed a bit worried that it wasnt working and brought up the possibility of trying for a second course once I get done with this one. Ugh... so frustrating because I've had Acne since sixth grade.

I am really really hoping things get better in the next month, I have put some fragile hope on it.

I hope everyone else is experiencing good things with their Accutane
