September 7 - Week 12 on Epuris



Off prednisone… Last week, I noticed a lot of improvements however this week it is back to normal. I am very red and inflamed again and I am breaking out on my chin with huge whiteheads. I think this is because I have finished my 10 day supply of prednisone so my body is going through withdrawal. I wish I can stay on that pill throughout my entire course but the dermatologist said it is a medication I can only take for a short period of time due to its side effects and risks.

Deep Cyst on cheek… I have had this constant deep cyst on my right cheek for the past month and it has come to the surface at least 3 times now. This past week I was scratching my face only to scratch off the skin and the white head popped to the surface. I decided that I was going to take the risk and get it all out be pushing down on my skin rather than squeezing. I think I got most of the infection out but now (like always) I am left with the black/brown mark until it heals. I have been moisturizing like crazy to help with the healing process.

Week 12… 3 Months… Today marks the beginning of the third month on Accutane. I am still on 40mg a day but my dermatologist eventually wants to get me at 60mg a day. I am hoping that within this month I will see the most changes as people say this is the month you start to see progress. I am also going away next week to the Carribean so I will make sure to lather myself in sunscreen (especially my face). I am hoping the salt water will also help with the inflammation. Stay tuned!

Ohhh my... I was just reading your blog and my heart goes out to you. I just joined this site because 3 weeks ago I found a miracle. I started drinking Diatomaceous Earth and its AMAZING..it cleans your entire system and somehow removes all the junk and balances many internal issues. I also use it as a mask and add it to my facial cleanser  (Sappho-charcoal bamboo soap is a wonder).  Anyway- it fights acne internally and externally. Research Diatomaceous Earth and you will be amazed at all the benifits it will bring to your health. Please let me know if you try this. I really think it will help you too. I can't wait to wake up each morning - just to look in my face mirror to see another day of clear skin and shrinking pores!
Best wishes
