#1 month Recap(20th July-20th Aug '2017) with pics

mony's blog


In short, you can check the before and after pics of my face.At first my face had whiteheads and many newly emerging pimples.I started using Isotretnoin 40mg and azithromycin 250mg per day for 15 days and then increased the dosage to 60mg per day.I have also been using cetaphil cleanser to cleanse my face and benzoyl peroxide 5% topical treatment on my face.At the end of the first month,my whiteheads have gone,skin has turned from itchy->less itchy->itchy when I stopped putting benzoyl peroxide.No new bumps have developed.But, the old bumps are still present and have grown more red when I stopped using Benzoyl peroxide in the last week of 1st month.

#Lesson learnt: Donot use benzoyl peroxide while on Isotretnoin.Benzoyl peroxide tends to shrink the pimple without eliminating it totally, whereas Isotretnoin generally tries to pump the pimples to its maximum size and then blow them out.So,if we use them together,they counter each other and donot show any considerable effect(I realized this in my last week on Month1)
