Day 127...month 5.



I haven't posted for a while because not much has changed. I switched to Absorica a little over a month ago and noticed a little bit more joint discomfort and some dryer skin/lips. I continue to break out pretty consistently. They are still spots under the skin that turn into inflammed, painful whiteheads. Pretty rare that I get a cyst. I do get some smaller whiteheads that go away pretty fast. The hyperpigmentation is just awful. My derm still thinks i'm having too much activity for this late in the course. I'm debating starting spironolactone as well. Definitely thought things would be better...anyone else still having breakouts this late in the course?

Can't fully answer your question since I have never taken accutane but I am on spironolactone and I feel like it is doing some good. My dose is low right now, only 25mg a day. Next month my dose goes up if my labs are normal for blood potassium levels. Anyhow, Peace!
