I hate to say I am back writing about another journey with my skin, but here I am. After a failed attempt at Spironolactone, attempts at diet changes and lifestyle changes, every cream, gel, antibiotic and basically every option at clearing my moderate yet persistent acne, I returned to my only hope: accutane. I was on accutane my sophomore year of high school when I had very bad acne and again nothing helped my skin. I never would have guessed i would have been part of the 15% of people who have to go on accutane round two but here I am. I dont remember any terrrrrible* side affects nor an initial breakout the first time around, and my skin was flawless after. Basically, my skin stayed relatively clear until last year, about 3 years after my first round of accutane. I went back to the derm begging for accutane again and she said no, to try sprionalactone again (im so mad about it thinking back at it because if it didnt work in high school why would it work now) but the spiro made my skin WAY WORSE (check out my other blog too that story) and so here I am, writing to you guys about another experience on accutane. Im excited, yet nervous because my mental state is already low from my current skin I dont know how im going to survive being in college while on accutane. I start my month waiting period tomorrow where i have to pass 2 pregnancy tests before i can start accutane in July. This waiting period is going to be a long one! Let alone the months of being on the drug itself before progress is made. sigh* Here are some current pictures of my skin. This is a good day for me for i have no cysts just inflammed skin and loads of white heads.
