I saw my dermatologist yesterday and went with no makeup on at all because I wanted him to see just how bad my face looked. It was hard for me to do because I never leave home without makeup on. I don't even let my roommates see me with no makeup.
Anyway, my derm injected some of the big cysts I had with cortisone and upped my dosage. I was taking 40mg 2x daily, but now I'll be taking 60 2x a day. He warned me that I was going to get extremely dry and need to use a good moisturizer regularly. I hope that upping the dosage really helps me get clear this time and I hope the side effects aren't too bothersome. I tend to get cold sores fairly often while on Accutane, unfortunately. I hate those so much!
Here are some pics a two days after cortisone injections. Most of the cysts have flattened out, so the hyperpigmentation is what is most visible now. Thank goodness for makeup!
