Week 1



So I've had acne since I was 12 and it didn't get bad until I was 15, recently I made some health changes and taking better care of myself and 40% of my Acne on my face went away with just the changes but my problem is my back, I get really painful acne on my back to the point I have to sleep on my stomach or I cant sit with my back against a chair.

I started Acutane (40MG Epuris) and I'm on day 5, I had a large cysts on my left cheek that cleared up pretty fast but taking forever to heal up, I'm mostly only getting little zits and white heads on my face and my back is still pretty bad but the size of the acne on my back has gone down a little.

I've so far only experienced a few side effects, I had a headache the first few days but that stopped, small dryness of my lips, and a pain in my cheeks almost like a cramp from smiling too much or when you laugh for to long the pain was keeping me up so I decided to take Aleeve which I have for my wrist (broke it 2 years ago) and the pain was manageable.

Can't wait till my next check in on the 31!
