So turns out that the injections from Sunday are actually helping out. I guess that the acne sometimes gets worse before it gets better. I currently have scattered white heads around my chin and one in that area in between my upper lips and nose. So as of right now, it has been a month and 2 days since starting accutane, I have not seen any serious improvements in my skin. Although, when I first started taking it I was breaking out around (and even ON) my lips. That may or may not have been because of the moisturizer I was using on my lips (Waxelene) - I noticed that since I started using Burt's Bees Chapstick - WHICH I HIGHLY RECOMMEND - I stopped breaking out in that area. Still, the acne that exists right now is painful.
In addition, the Vanicream Moisturizer has been working in terms of hydrating my skin although not as well as the Waxelene; I have to apply the Vanicream like 2-3 times more per day. Anyway, thanks for reading and like always feel free to ask me any questions you'd like.
