Yesterday was the end of my first month on Accutane.
No new pustules this week. Nose, forehead, and cheeks are still pushing out blackhead type sebum. Nose was really full of them but again nothing too noticeable unless you were up close. I feel like there is one coming under my bottom lip and above my chin but I can't feel it by pressing around it, we'll see what happens. The blackheads seem to be going away slowly. The scar from week one on my nose is finally gone.
So the big change this week was the eczema type dry skin. Started on the back of the arms, my shoulders, front of my ears and the back of my neck. It would get dry and then crack leaving hard dry skin. I've been putting on Cortizone 10 and Nivea Extended Moisture body lotion on my arms and back of neck. Face is still dry, using Cetaphil Daily Facial Moisturizer.
Lips are still dry and peeling. No matter how much Aquaphor I use, they dry and chap. Still able to live with it though.
No back pain, no bloody noses, no depression or anger issues. Just dry skin and dry lip. Tomorrow I go to my Dermatologist for my bllod test and questions I have. I wonder if he is going to up the dose.
