6 and half weeks in - isotretinoin - over 40's



Hi guys, I am now 6 and half weeks into my journey. So far, my face is still clear and so much smoother. My rosacea is definitely so much better. I have breakouts on my body, mainly large cysts/boils, but the overall texture of my skin is a lot smoother than it was. there are still some under skin white bumps that need to come out, mainly on my chin

My face is not that dry anymore, I use Boots Time Delay moisturiser with spf 30 every morning and that seems to be all I need. Nothing at night. My lips are dry, but still not bad, and my eyes are usually feeling sore tired and picky, but I guess I can live with that.

I'm still on 40mgs a day, but I hope to up it when I see the derm next  (on 24th) as my side effects are ok. I would love the boils to go do one!!  

anyway that's all for now. If there are any changes I'll let you know!

Take care xx

I'd say it was around week 8 when I really started to notice the difference in my cysts / boils. I was on 40mg for the first four weeks then 70mg for the rest. Keep us posted!
