1st month: 60mg/day
In a cold weather now and my face has dried out, so much so that i have stopped using Benzoyl Peroxide and have started using regular face wash, mainly because it started to leave these residual white spots of flakiness. I currently have a painful pimple on my nose where i haven't gotten in a while, and two other active pimples on my face, not bad for day 18. Could i have bypassed Initial breakout this time too?
I think it's a bit too early but my hand has these little red bumps from the dryness, i don't believe this happened the last time i took accutane until month 2 or 3. My scalp itches A LOT too. i gotta stop sratching it cause it's causing hair loss. I believe it's itching cause the oil is pushed out, i can see the little white flakes that's not dandruff but akin to face flakes.
Anyway, this is frustrating. When the doctor ups my dose to 80mg/day things are just gonna get worse: like nose so dry that i can't blow too hard for fear of bleeding, drier lips that i have to moisturize after every sip or drink, joint pain, eczema, hair loss, fatigue, and god knows what else.
