New to Accutane

06/14/06 (Day 1)

After reading so many of these message boards, I have decided to jump in!!

Today is my first day using Accutane (Claravis) and I am sooooo excited!! My Derm has me on the 20 mg, just once a day. My acne isn't too bad, but it takes FOREVER for any kind of pimple to go away!! I get these bumps around my temples and forhead that just never go away but my primary breakout areas are my lower cheeks (by my mouth) and chin. I have some that are over 2 months old and show no sign of going away....EEK!! :shock:

I was wondering how people on Accutane manage going swimming in pools that have chemicals? Please let me know 'cause I live in Oklahoma where it is already in the high 90's......

Anyway, wish me luck.....I think I have to do this for 4-5 months.

first few weeks can't hurt, but afterwards when skin is gettin' dry it really hurts and dries even more!

Good luck!
