110 Days Accutane

Okay so Im on day 110 coming up to the end of my fourth month of Accutane and things are finally starting to have a noticeable difference. I have 0 active cysts. The cream that my derm prescribed me has seen to the remaining few that were there. I have one large pimple on my back but its not a cyst and I know its not going to leave a huge red mark like a cyst would so I'm happy.

There are patches of skin on my back that have become clear from blackheads and clogged pores which haven't been clear in years. Most of the blackheads are more prominent and I have been told that they are all starting to rise like little bumps so I'm hoping that this is them getting pushed out of my skin. 

In a week or so I was going to start some light exfoliation on my back, mainly to help speed up my PIH recovery a bit, alongside my vitamins. I know this isn't recommended while on tane but I thought it would also help bring my clogged pores out also.

HELLO!
THE REASON WHY THEY SAY YOU SHOULDN'T EXFOLIATE IS BECAUSE OF HOW DAMAGED YOUR SKIN COULD BECOME SINCE ITS TOO FRAGILE AND THIN.
ANYTHING THAT IS TOO AGGRESSIVE IN ANY PART OF YOUR SKIN COULD LEAVE SCARS.
MAYBE YOU SHOULD LET THIS VERY POWERFUL DRUG DO ITS JOB AND CLEAN U UP ALL BY ITS SELF :)
I AM STARTING MONTH 2 AND I HAVE NOT GOTTEN EXTRA DRY YET, MY LIPS YES, BUT I KEEP THEM CALM WITH VITAMIN E OIL (STRONGLY RECOMMEND)
I HAVE FELT TEMPTED TO PICK ON THOSE BLACK HEADS THAT ARE TURNING INTO LITTLE BALLS... BUT THEY LEAVE MY SKIN RED AFTER AND I JUST RATHER LEAVE THEM THAN ADD MORE ATTENTION TO MY ALREADY SEVERE ACNE.
GOOD LUCK!

Yay! I'm happy your skin is clearing up. I'm only on my second week... I can't wait to be where you are!
