Hello all! Lots of changes since the last post. I'm just finishing up month 3. I have about 4 more days until I start on month 4. In my last entry, I talked about how I had broken out terribly after starting my new dosage. Well, technically the breakout has healed. However, it has left these strange red spots on my face where the pimples were. Definitely got scolded by my doc for picking Sometimes you just can't help it!) So I've been moisturizing the red spots like crazy to avoid itchiness and to promote healing. If I didn't have all the red spots, I believe my face would look great! I do have one active pimple right now but that is nothing compared to what it used to be! The spots are taking forever to heal. Not only the spots on my face, but any time I get a scratch anywhere it takes forever to heal since I've started Accutane!
Some other things that have changed would be that I am no longer working out and I have had to start wearing my glasses again. I haven't been able to work out with this terrible joint pain I've been experiencing. Luckily, doc said I should only have to be on Accutane for another month and a half or so. Hopefully once I'm done I can get back to it. As far as the glasses, well my eye have become so dry that I cannot tolerate contacts any longer. Hoping that side effect goes away quickly after finishing Accutane!
I'm still experiencing dry lips, hair and skin. Still using Blistex Moisture Melt which still works wonders. I still use Cetaphil for my face which I absolutely love. And still using Head and Shoulders for hair and scalp along with letting conditioner sit in my hair for about 5 minutes before rinsing.
I'm not experiencing anything too major so that's a plus. I'm ready to be done though!
