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!
