End of month 2 (day 60)

After visiting my dermatologist she decided that she will keep me on 20 mg for another 2 months. I was kind of disappointed because I was really hoping she would put me on a least 30 mg because my blood work was fine both times. I mentioned to her that I keep getting this weird pimples (papules probably) that just don't go away. I have bumps under my skin from them and even though more than a month and half passed by..they are still present. She prescribed me Medrol and said that it will help with them. I truly hope it does. I don't know how I feel about Accutane..my skin looks worse than it did before I started..but yeah that happens..what I can't deal with are the bumps under my skin from inflamed pimples that I got on this drug. I'm so scared that they will stay on my face forever.. I hope month 3 treats me better..we'll see.
