Today is day 12 and I am feeling much better than I have been. I woke up this morning with only one white head! Weeee! Most "normal" people would not be thrilled by this, but when you have been waking up each morning with about 8 white heads surrounding your mouth, one is something to celebrate.
My lips are still super dry. No cracking or bleeding, just extremely uncomfortable and tight. Also, my back/shoulders are super sore.
Before going on accutane I read others strategies and experiences. I have found that only washing my face at night and rinsing it in the morning with warm water helps to keep it from getting further irritated. I know this sounds gross, but hey, it helps.
I still find myself embarrassed and looking to the floor when others are talking to me. Very rude of me, I know, but I can't help it. I wish I could cover my chin at all times. Everything above my upper lip is clear.
That is all for today. Feel free to ask any questions!
