Day 17



So am now half way through week 2. Headaches and body aches are gone :-)

I have been drinking about 2lts of water a day, compared to my normal of none and am feeling good about that. In regards to my skin, one side has been looking better and smoother, the other side has a large pimple that is slowly drying out and have had 2 more little pimples pop up. I notice that new pimples go away a lot faster than they used to though.

I am on a low dose of only 20mg, will be going up to 30 or 40 next month. My lips are dry and my skin is starting to dry up some more, specially on my body.

Last night I tried coconut oil on my skin, have read so many good things about it and was really excited. This morning when I woke up I had two large dry, itchy sore red patches on my cheeks. This is a reoccurring issue and it poped up in my 2nd day of accutane but with lots of moisturiser and hydrocortison cream it went away. I am wondering if it needs to come out before it gets better? My skin is currently very painful, red and ugly. Plan on staying home all day and studying!

Im currently on my 13th day, with 60mg a day(30mg in the morning and 30mg in the evening) and i do agree that pimples go away much faster. Also, you said that one cheek is looking better, well same story goes for me, my left cheek is been clearing up faster, while my right has somewhat become worst.

well good luck with, your process ill try to keep up with you and see if things

go the same way for us.

Well side effects are not so bad, just normal back pain but i can cope with it. The dryness can get a little irritating mainly my lips! But today though i did experience something different; when i woke up my nose got a little runny, so i decided to tap it, and as i did blood started to come up, in total this happen three times today so right now if i were to tap my nose it would most definitely bleed.

Thanks, i hope the same for you!

Yeah I had back pain in my first week but it went away. Dry lips do suck (I can't enjoy chocolate as much anymore). The nose bleed is weird, I haven't had any issues like that, but think I have read something about it on here at some point.

Well lucky you, i guess since i do soccer my back hurts everyday. And haha yeah i understand, i mean it gets kind of bad for me though; since I'm a guy I'm constantly losing my chapstick and my lips are always peeling. Yeah i didn't believe it when i read it, but that morning i found out it was true.
