Day 3 of Accutane-Just starting out



Today is my third day on claravis (accutane) and obviously nothing much has happened yet, my skin nor lips have started to become dry, really they're just as oily as ever but I hear it takes about 2 weeks to start experiencing dry skin. I feel like my acne is getting worse because recently I have started to get minimal amounts of acne on my neck (it's severe on my face and very minor on my back and shoulders), so I've been using an acne face wash while in the shower and 5% benzoyl peroxide even though my dermatologist said I shouldn't use other creams, but I'm only doing this right now because my derm said it might make your face really dry so once accutane actually starts drying out my face I'll stop use of the salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide. For now though all I can do is wait. Oh and by the way in case anyone cares I'm currently taking one capsule a day with 30 mg isotretinoin but the dosage will likely go up the longer I'm on accutane.
