Week 1 (Accutane)



I had an initial breakout within the first 3 days. Hard/inflamed bumps along my cheek bone/side neck, which I haven't had that badly since I was 16. I don't really get active/severe on my back but I got 3 random hard lumps. I also got whiteheads around my chin.

My face and lips started feeling dry after about 3 days. After 5 days much drier. The crack/bit where the nose meets the face felt sore/burnt when I wiped it, as did my skin near my upper eyelids when I rubbed them slightly. With moisturiser the dryness isn't too bad though. Putting Vaseline on my lips morning and night sufficient so far.

End of week 1 my lips and skin near chin around mouth started flaking. I started applying Vaseline to my lips every 6 hours now.
