Week 6



So its my 6th week of the treatment. I do not often write here since im uploading pictures in my gallery to share my progress.

I just went to my derm for my monthly check up and im good to go on with my prescription since my bloodtest is pretty good.

I also undergo extraction today as my derm suggested to lessen the inflamation.

So its kinda gross now to take pictures.

My face is pretty much okay compare to 2nd to 4th week. Lots of pimples are flattening. And im happy to see that accutane is working. My derm said those redmarks will dissapear with time.

In terms of side effects i do have chapped lips, dry hair, mild joint pain and sometimes headache.my derm said we can lower my dose from 30mg to 20mg. But i refused 30 mg is okay with me and the side effects i am experiencing right now are bearable.

Im also learning not to feel so sad and stress my self about what i am going through. Those who are battling with acne like me chin up! You should not let acne define who you are. We are all beautiful thats what i learned from my friends who are with me in this journey.

Sorry if im not fluently speak english.TY
