Day 40



So I had my one month check in with my derm back on the 30th and It went really well:) Dr. Desilva was very happy with my progress, he commented that I went from 36 large cystic spots to 16 small/medium cystic spots. I have also started on my full dose of Accutane. I was taking one 40mg pill a day and now I'm on two 40mg pills a day. I have already seen the difference in side effects almost immediately. My dry lips become even more dry I'm talking like they looked like raisins. I have like 5-6 tubes of Aquaphor either on me or around me at all times. I've noticed my skin is starting to get irritated from the sun, I feel itchy and slightly sun burned. The first couple of days starting on the new dose, I was moodier and really tired. I feel like I've bounced back pretty well after the initial few days. My weight baring joint i.e. my hips, knees and ankles are feeling a bit sore. I do regularly workout so I have to be careful not to over strain myself, but the soreness isn't bad just more annoying than anything.

That’s it for now, hope you found this information helpful. If you have any other questions feel free to leave a comment and I'll try my best to answer them. Until next time...
