Day 1



Well here I am. I'm not going to go through my whole life back story but what I will tell you is that I am a 16 year old girl, struggling through mild acne and I would like to share with all of you my journey to getting perfect skin.

So its finally the first day of the start of my course of Roccautane or as others like to call it Isotretinoin. To be honest I don't think that I have bad skin myself; all I have is a few spots on my forehead and both cheeks, one cheek is quite a bit worse than the other. This was my second time going to a Derm and the first one was not much help, although i think that Cyclimycin (the antibiotic I was prescribed) can help prevent my initial breakout. And believe me I'm no doctor but believe me I've done my research and I think that this may be possible.

Yes I have searched through the internet and looked at side effects and peoples blogs to see what I can expect. I have been prescribed 2 x 40mg a day, yes its quite a lot, even i thought that.
