So I couldn't remember my password for a long time so I'm finally back on here. I have just completed my 3rd month of accutane and it has done wonders. My derm said I'll be done after my 5th month.
My chest acne is for the most part gone and for the first time in years I can wear dresses and v necks and whatever the hell I want without worrying about my chest. That has been the greatest part of it, I no longer have to buy clothes that will cover my chest. So happy!!
For the first time in like 2 months I got a pimple on my face last night, it's already clearing up though. I left the house without wearing foundation yesterday which is something I wouldn't dare do 6 months ago.
The only complaint I have is my lips are so incredibly dry, if I forget chap stick then I might as well hide my mouth because it's gonna get flaky and red. right now I am just waiting for my acne scars to start clearing up. Ones of my cheeks have started to lighten but I still have some pretty red ones near my chin and on my chest.
I'm not sure if anyone will see this but I've been wanting to get some piercings soon and when I asked my dermoltogist about it she said there's nothing in the literature that says no piercings (I already know you can't get tattoos) but she said she's not sure how much accutane would affect a piercing. Anyone who has gotten a piercing on tane and nothing's happened?? I'd love to know because I'm tired of waiting !
