Day 14 On Accutane (Last Day Of Antibiotics)

I saved my last antibiotic pill for the morning to slowly ween myself off it in the hope that it will curb a breakout. All my inflammatory lesions have calmed a lot, that said all the smaller, unnoticable bumps are more whitehead-esque on my jawline, making it hard for me to shave. I'm only getting lesions around my eyebrows and they arent that bad positionally. I have to say I am happy with the overall improvement in my skin, it is more or less just red marks right now. I just want to write this as a control so when I'm off the antibiotics (which i started at the same time) I can see the relationship. My derm told me to expect a breakout after stopping antibiotics, as most experience this. However, I think this may just coincidentally be around other user's IBs (14 days).

Side effects have seemed less severe the last few days, I'm not sure if this is a good thing. I am moisturising more often. Fish oil and plenty of water has helped possibly, and I have been less active.

I am anticipating this coming week, as if I continue on this track I will be happy.
