Week 2 And A Few Days Of Accutane!



hello again everyone!

well, i must apologize to those who might actually care about me not putting up an entry last week but it's because i didnt notice any difference in my skin. maybe just the slightest bit of dryness in the lips and thats it! my face was just as acned up and oily as usual.

though, i have been noticing a difference in something for the past few days now. the back of my hands are soooo dry and scaley! which you'd think id be mad or freaked about but im actually super excited since im not actually getting accutane through my doctor but through canada and canada gets it from india and i was a little bit worried at first that my pills were duds but now that i have such dry hands, im praying that its from these pills that im taking and not just because. ive also been getting dry eyes lately though i dont know if thats from the pills or from recent lack of sleep eusa_think.gif

and i must ask for anybody reading whose been on accutane or is on it right now: when did you start noticing the first signs of dryness on yourself?

Hey, I am on day 19 now. And as for the dryness I didnt notice it until day 7. My lips became easily chapped but I think the weather was also a factor and my face became dry and flakey. athe current acne started to become dry and healing faster i think. I didnt notice too much of a difference in my acne, but others have said it certainly has gone down. I looked at pictures just today and I do see less redness then before but there are still quite a few active cysts.
