It's Day 8



So it's day 8 on accutane, which means it's less than one week until I can up my dosage to 40mg and speed things up! This is a little exciting.

Still experiencing dry lips, but I go to bed with plenty of lucas pawpaw ointment on and wake up to soft lips. Again, I woke up in the early hours of the morning with an extreme urge to itch my face, I made a couple of spots bleed again but it was so itchy I didn't know what to do.

I definitely noticed my scalp is drying out and flaking now, so I'm going to invest in dandruff shampoo today.

I have a huge cyst on my neck which is not going down so I dabbed a little panoxyl acne cream on it which helped a little, but not much. My skin looks very much the same as yesterday with a few more spots coming to the surface. I used to be terrible with my skin and would squeeze every spot that came out but have stopped since being on accutane.

I did notice a few of the spots starting to dry out now. I'm not sure if I've experienced the initial breakout yet or if it's still coming? I have a feeling it may arrive when I up my dosage.

Not too much to report other than that. By the looks of it I don't need to wash my hair today, yay! I had days where I would wash it twice a day because it got so oily. Once in the morning for work and if I was going out that night, I would have to come home and wash it again.

I will be posting photos once a week or every few days so stay tuned :)
