Month 2: Accutane



So I am now on day 3 of Month 2 dosage and feel like I'm getting better symptom wise every day. Everything that I told my dermatologist is normal -- so I am hoping it stays that way.

I wanted to write today because I was wondering if any of you are experiencing these symptoms that are certainly tolerable, but I know there could be other products out there I can use to heal!

1) Cracked corner of my mouth

-I've been using vaseline every morning & night and as needed

-Using shea butter stick and other medicated chapsticks

2) Bloody noses (I used to get them all the time when I was younger so they're not a huge deal to me, but they are so chapped!)

-I use saline spray every morning and night

Anyone else experiencing these?! No matter what I do with the cracked corner of my lip, I feel like it won't heal since I'm not going to keep my mouth shut! haha

Oh & last but not least -- headaches bother me sometimes too. This was the first thing my dermatologist asked me about so that makes me a little nervous. They're pretty tolerable though, but definitely prominent.

Thanks & Happy healing! :)

Hey. So far I'm experiencing dry skin on my face and dry lips. Nothing too crazy yet though. No bleeding from cracked skin thus far either. But, I'm only on day 12..I'm sure I will dry out a lot more.
