February 10 (Day 61 On Claravis)



I'm hardly getting any breakouts. I decided to post in longer increments since there isn't a lot of changes at this point. I get a breakout once a while especially on my back. Since I've been taking 40mg twice daily I have noticed red, itchy, scabby sores on the back of my hands and in my upper arms. I'm using CereVe cream but it only eases it a little. I've tried using every type of lip balm I can think of and nothing works to relieve my dry lips. I go for my blood work and check up tomorrow and I can't wait for the dermatologist to see how I'm coming along. I no longer see a psychologist because I'm no longer having any emotional issues which is fantastic. If everything continues to go good then I should only have 3 more months to go. Keeping my fingers crossed because this medicine continues to amaze me. Even though I still have scarring and pitting on my cheeks I never thought I would even have this kind of results.

A lot of people say they like Cetaphil mosturizing cream better than the CeraVe because its thicker and works better. I also agree and I like using the CeraVe one during the day and Cetaphil one during the night. Also I think he cetaphil one is a few dollars cheaper. On my lips I use aquaphor (the regular kind not he one for lips) and it seems to work pretty well but I still have dry lips too no matter what product I use. Good luck with the rest of your time on Accutane! I hope I get the same results your having!

I used Aquaphor and had no luck for my lips. I'm now using Carmex which works the best for me. Hoping you have good results. I'm finding it to be so worth it.

Just the plain. I had a checkup yesterday with the dermatologist and she had me but Cortibalm and it works amazingly!!! It was $7 but so worth the price.
