5 weeks! Up to 60mg a day



So after my first 4 weeks i got my new prescription, 60mg per day (was 40 before). 
My face is ok, I still get some zits on my chin and bumps on my forehead but definitely nothing compared to a month ago. 
I'm very dry, Aquaphore and the best Avene moisturizing cream I could find is working wonders though. I'm red very easily. 

Also I got a misadventure with tea tree oil that I applied as usual on a pimple forming on my jawline. I put a drop on a cotton and applied for maybe 1mn30. Result: I got myself a chemical burn, it was awful; the skin just went away under my finger when i washed my face the next morning. Accutane really really weakens the skin and it's the first time i've realized how much. So yeah no more tea tree oil. 

For the good news: my back is better. I can put sport tops that shows the shoulder blades again, as i only got a few marks left on them. The middle on my back is still bad though but gosh i'm already so relieved. 

Other side effects: nose bleed today, randomly at work. I'll try to drink more.
