start of week 2 - isotrex

Nightmare. Fucking nightmare. 

my face is very bad right now. I can't take the courage to actually upload photos of it, I'm that embarassed about it and feel extremely depressed. 

i have lots of 'baby' white heads in many area and like raised blackheads all round my forhead and chin/mouth area, tiny ones! Also my red marks are worse. I'm totally purging and it's killing me. 

Is it normal to purge so soon? Like a had two large white heads crop up on my chin after my first night using this. 

I'm just a little disheartened I guess and because there isn't much info on this isotrex I don't have much to go by except maybe relate it to accutane breakouts? Since it has isotretinoin in it?

Dude this is soooo normal. Your skin does not look bad at all from what I can see! 2 weeks is pretty much the textbook time to start purging for isotretenoin or any retinol, based on my [hours] or research. I know it's disheartening but you are getting it out of the way and I bet your skin will be feeling baby soft in a little more time!

Thank you. Trust me it looks worse than those pics when you look at me up close.. especially my forhead.

I just haven't had a breakout like this in such a long time so it's hard to face people that haven't seen me like this before.

Oh I have def been there before. It is probably the hardest part about any acne treatment is it gets worse before it gets better, and I'm a picker sometimes so for me it gets wayyyy worse. ERGH. But I think this website is a good place to vent, so I'm glad you're here!!
