Yet again...

OK so I know I wasn't going to update for a while but I really wanted to log that today I have woke up to ANOTHER huge breakout on both cheeks and neck. So PISSED OFF. It is just getting worse and worse and I have come to the conclusion now that I am just one of those rare few who it does naff all for. I just hope it doesn't stay this bad forever now.

Hey hun - I can relate to how you are feeling all too well.  I am 32 and i've been dealing with acne that doesn't seem to go away since I was 15.  Three courses of accutane, spiro and topicals have done zilch in the long run.  I have also done the diet and lifestyle changes to no avail.  My advice to you is to get and go, live each day as if it were your last and give accutane a chance.  It can take up to the end of treatment to see progress.  In the meantime, treat your body like a temple, be happy, play up the things about yourself that you do like and keep on keeping on.

Hugs from a fellow struggler in NJ

Thank you for your fab advice! It's great that you are so positive, I wish I could be too. I know I shouldn't let it get to me, it's so hard.

You can do it hun! Staying positive is quite challenging, we'll just have to make it a habit. 

Sending all my hugs all the way from PHL. ♥♥♥

Thank you, I think now I am getting to the 'if I don't give a damn it might just go away' stage!

Hi! I am at the beginning of my journey with accutane/ claravis.  I was wondering when you first got your IB?  I know it is different for everyone, but I am just curious.   I feel like anyday now I will wake up to something terrible.  I am on day 13.  When I went to get my initial blookwork the tech at the lab told me to be patient and not give up on it.  She said it takes 3 months sometimes but she has seen that it works.  That is my best advice to you ;) Hopefully from here on out it will be clear skin coming your way
Thanks!

Thank you for your comment. I can't remember exactly when it started but it is on this blog. I know it's been going on for a couple of months though and just increasing in severity. I am on week 11 now and still breaking out. Good luck, I hope you don't suffer as bad as I have!!
