So I've decided to come on here and chat about my accutane progress, I am driving my family
crazy so thought I'd chat to you guys instead.
So I began the treatment a little over 4 weeks ago, the derm recommended it when I failed to respond to
Doxy, Antibiotics and the usual other treatments. I had never had acne in my life up until about 6 months ago.
I am 25 and this flare up came out of no where, just one side of my face red raw, lumpy, pussy and horrible, my nose
was all distorted and lumpy too.
The doctors didn't actually know what it was it was that bad. I went on a course of Cortisone and Flucloxacillin for about
month which fixed me right up, but the derm said it would probably come back- I was like noooooo, and yeah he was right,
a few weeks late i started getting lumps on the other side of my face so bit the bullet and got the script for accutane.
No change, didn't seem to get better or worse. Stocked up on lip balm!
Lips starting to get a tiny but dry, but kept them moisturised so no big deal. No change in acne apart from a whopping lump
coming up on my chin (clear before)
More breakouts of both sides of face. Way more lumps and increased redness. Chin lump massive. Hurts to put on make up but don't really want to leave the house without it.
Still more breakouts, hoping they will stop soon as I do not want my whole face taken over. Has probably doubled since before treatment. Lips ok still.
Finding the cetaphil face wash does little to remove makeup. Any suggestions for a facewash that does this?
Heres hoping that it gets better from here! Suppose to improve in the second month?
