Saw Derm today (early due to the holidays). Will be increasing my dose to 60 mg for the third month. Now I'm scared about another flare! At least I'm nearing the 3rd month so hopefully things are calm.
I'm continuing to break out. Have about 2-4 actives at any given time. Still getting about a cyst/week. Today I also noticed that my chest is breaking out! I haven't had acne there ever. Is this normal?
Tried to get some makeup but unfortunately too dry & flaky. Ended up getting talked into a hydrating serum & a redness reducing moisturizer. We'll see if it helps...
Side effects more noticeable: very dry skin & peeling lips. Could be due to the cold, snowy weather. Oh and my face has been flushing a lot. The Derm says she knows I'm taking the accutane because I am red. Still no joint pain, eczema, etc. Cholesterol is slightly high but all other labs are ok. Cannot wait to be finished this course!!!!!!
