Okay so I had Acne as a teenager and it sort of disappeared on its own without doing anything ... Which was really really great !
But now a month back after almost a year of no acne at all it returned with a vengeance:/
Pimples all over my face not even forehead spared. ..
So I decided to take isotretinoin ( accutane)
Today is day 4
My derm put me on 40 mg a day
My pimples have pretty much dried out.. and some are on the process of drying.. no new pimples for sure!
Side effects : I got a bad cold after the days I'm not sure if it's because of the accutane or what... cuz it does dry out the nose .. so I dunno. ..
Apart from that the dry skin
I also use adapalene gel to be applied at night as it makes your skin sensitive to light in talking seriously sensitive. .. like red patches even if u check ur phone after applying the gel ... When the gel is off its fine!
