Start Of Day 3.



Is it physically possible for an IB to start this quickly?

As I've mentioned before, my biggest area of concern right now are the clogged pores around my mouth. I don't even have any actives right now; rather, the area around my mouth has bumpiness from both healing pimples and clogged pores. Well...I've been terrified of getting an IB considering the congestion I'm dealing with, and I think it just might be happening. The weird thing is...the pores aren't becoming inflamed, but some seem to be swelling while others seem to be coming up in the form of plugs (but I refuse to touch this--I know I'll only make it worse). It looks so horrible in natural lighting/certain bathroom lighting (you know what I'm talking about). I am seriously considering getting a facial with extractions to improve the texture of my skin. Of course, I would tell my esthetician that I'm on Accutane; I trust that she'll tell me whether or not she would actually do a facial while I'm on such an intense medication.

UGH. This SUCKS. Royally. PLEEEEAAASE if anyone has words of advice/comfort, I'd love to hear them.

I'm on day 7 of 20mg and this is my 3rd go round on Accutane. Believe it or not, I had my IB on day 2-3. I was started on a lower dose bc my acne was considered mild. Im hoping that everything will calm down in the next week or so.
