Low Dose Accutane / TCA Cross Update (Photo)



Day 28.

Basically the same, more dryness. All pimples from last update still on my face with new pimples but I noticed they are being dried a bit faster. They still take forever to get dried up though. Going to go get extracted AGAIN tomorrow. I got extracted last Friday.. yet there so much more to extract tomorrow yoohoo!

Few days ago, I woke up with extreme itchiness on both my hands (it literally woke me up at 12:30pm) and I could not sleep for a long time because of this extreme itchiness. 

This side effect is quite harsh.. so I decided to even lower my dose to 20mg/week. I am going to take 20mg/week for at least a year and going to start treating my pitted scar with TCA Cross treatment within few months when my face become completely stable with low dose Accutane.Hopefully, the side effects and initial breakout are less severe for 20mg/week..

- Not much difference on spots treated with TCA Cross. They still look pink/worse. 

I will probably update weekly/monthly from now.
