Day 31



Quick update: I went to the seem this morning and he changed my prescription from 40 mg of accutane once a day, to a 30 mg dose in the morning and in the evening.

My side effects are as follows:

-EXTREMELY chapped lips

-Dry/peeling face (mostly around the corners of my mouth and nose)

-Breaking out in rashes on my hands and arms

-Mild back pain

-And mild mood swings (but doesn't every girl already)

Acne update:

-Clear chest (except for dry patches of skin) but no blemishes

-Right side of my back is pure scarring, the left side has 4 big blemishes and some other scarring

-My forehead has two blemishes, one is a scab that should be gone tomorrow

-my blackheads are clearing SO nicely! My nose is soooo much softer as is my chin, there are now about 30 noticeable blackheads, compared to the 120 I tried counting before treatment

-my chin is breaking out, I have about 4-5 blemishes that I hate, there is a lot of scarring too

All in all I am very pleased with the results I'm getting from accutane and I can only imagine what the next few months will bring me, good luck to everyone and Merry Christmas!
