Mid Week 2 Update...



Well, I seem to have a flurry of new spots come up, mostly on my right cheek. Not totally out of the ordinary for me but normally I wouldn't get this many in one go. That being said, they come up fast, whitehead fast, and then leave pretty fast...

One thing I can't determine is whether it's the roaccutane or my moisturiser that's causing the havoc. I switched to a La Roche Posay Effaclar H, after my derm recommended the range. However, the cream has shea butter in it, and that since it's oil based, it could also be causing the breakout. I didn't use any over the weekend and I was fine, then applied on Monday and look whats happened!!

So i'm switching back to my 'simple' moisturiser which I was using pre-treatment to see if that makes a difference. Just a little worries that it won't combat the crying effects of the drug too well...

Will keep you updated - upping my dosage to 40mg on Friday!!!
