Day 97 Of Accutane.



So I just wanted to update you guys on how my skins doing since my dose has been increased. So far it's not too bad. I have two cysts. One above my eyebrow and one on the side of my forehead. Although they are small and not too noticeable. I also have two pimples on my cheek that are now scabs. One that was right above my eyebrow that is now a scab and one or two very small ones on my hair line that are now scabs. So no really active ones besides the cysts and I also have a few of those really tiny pimples. Also I have a lot under my jawline on my neck but those aren't really noticeable.

I have notices some more dryness but I'm managing well.

I wash my face every night with Cetaphil gentle cleanser for all skin types. Then I moisturize with the CeraVe lotion, then the Cetaphil Creme, the the Cetaphil lotion. I know that's a lot of lotions but I find it moisturized bet when I use all three and I layer them before bed.

Then in the morning when I wake up I just rinse my face with warm water and mosturize with the CeraVe lotion and I use the Revlon photo ready BB Creme SPF 30. And then I use a very little but of pressed powder so my face doesn't look oily.

Then for my lips I use medicated blistex during the day and aquaphor at night.

The other side effect I have is dry patches on my upper arm but that first really bother me!


that's great! looks like finally things are looking up for you:-)

what happens to your existing pimples/cysts? do they go away on their own? if so, how long do they take to go away?

I'm on day 37 and I have been breaking out worse than ever! and ......I picked them, yeah I know....now I have huge scabs on my face, the pimples were so painful and itchy I just couldn't take it anymore!
