Isotretinoin (Accutane)

Sign in to Follow  


I know it is pretty late to be starting on my Accutane log, but it hadn't occurred to me earlier that I should have one. Now that I do, I hope to be able to closely monitor how my acne is doing. I've had acne for about six years now, since I was 9 years old (I'm 15 now) I've tried doxycycline, differin, another capsule I can't recall the name of and many over-the-counter cleansers, all to no avail. And now, my dermatologist over at the National Skin Centre prescribed me 20mg of isotretinoin for a month. Today marks my tenth day, but I'm having terribly painful breakouts on my face. Mostly around the jaw and cheek area on my right side and some on my nose. The breakouts are really painful but I keep telling myself it will eventually be worth it when my acne had cleared out.

Well, till next time,
