Day 24- Almost A Month.



I'm 17 years old and have just started accutane for my moderate face acne almost a month ago. I figured I would write about it since its what helped me decide whether or not I wanted to start my treatment smile.png. I'm currently on 30mg a day, although my dermatologist has told me he will continue to up my dose throughout the next few months.

So far I haven't had an awful breakout as a lot of people have described, I've had a few new spots come up on my face that are red and quite sore, and a few on my back, but that's all. As far as side effects go so far all I've experienced is the obvious dry lips; they have cracked and bled and look disgusting, but its quite manageable with lots of lip balm, also had pretty horrible back and joint pain. Nothing majorly noticeable apart from that!

I will carry on writing updates whenever something new happens, and if you have any questions feel free to ask! smile.png
