Tomorrow morning I go in for my blood tests; hopefully it won't be too long before I get my accutane prescription.
I'm experiencing continued irritation/itching on my skin, although I've stopped using the atralin (tretinoin) gel.
I'm currently washing with Neutrogena face wash, treating with a 2% sal acid gel and a little AHA+, using a Neutrogena sunscreen that is somewhat irritating (I'm getting a better one soon), and using hydrocortizone cream to manage the itching, which is worst at the center of my chin.
I think the irritation I'm experiencing may be razor burn, so I'll stop shaving this area for a couple weeks and see if that helps.
In other matters, I found a great deal on Amazon for two-packs of 20oz bottles of Cetaphil face wash and moisturizer - huzzah! I should be set for most of my five-month accutane course now. I'd love to keep using acne.org products, but the moisturizer is too pricey for the amounts I'll be needing.
I'm also considering doing an accutane vlog on youtube; the good ones have been a great resource of info and comfort for me.
