Day 7 Of Claravis.

katiesko

1038 views

So it's Day 7 of my journey on Claravis (Accutane) and my acne is getting substantially red. It's starting to get dry but it's also smoothing down. My lips are really dry despite using Nivea hydrating lip care chapstick. I wash my face with Cetaphil Foaming Face Wash and moisturize with the Cetaphil Lotion. (You could find all Cetaphil products at CVS or a local pharmacy.) For make up, I use neutrogena & almay products because they're non-comedogenic, which means it won't clog your pores. It's only day 7, and I have a long journey awaiting me.

WISH ME LUCK!!

Good luck girl! I'm on day 8 th. my skin is starting to get dry and so are my lips. Today my skin feels quite sensitive.

I've had some strange pains, like behind my neck, arms, right hand , they are very mild and only last a few seconds, they come and go,

I'm only on 20 mgs, so I made an appointment with my derm next week to see if this is normal.

How do you feel so far??

well, i haven't been experiencing strange pains although i have been having more frequent headaches.

I feel somewhat normal. I mean, It's hard not to focus on whether something is working or not on your skin. In the past after getting an oral medication, I'd spend at least 30 minutes staring at my skin to make sure the drug was working. I pray that it will! I've been struggling with acne for over 2 years now and good luck to you too! I started on 20 mgs too. Well, I hope everything's okay with you!!! Good Luck!!
