Recommended Posts

Well yet again missed a few days just with coursework from school ect had no time for this but anyways past few days not be going too bad stil have bigggg cyst on my chin which is nasty:( face is looking very red which im not too fused about. My girlfriend was at hers on friday night she said my face looks really red but my spots have gone alot which i was very happy about as we have only been together 1 month 2 weeks or something so it was quiet nice of her:)

Side effects - :( Well its sunday today and all i can say is i played football yesterday and football today i play for 2 teams. And my muscles are achinig lower back very sore when i bend down and my joints feel stiffer and im only on 20mg :(

Lips- Soooo dry only day 13/14 i didnt think that my lips would be this bad they are peeling and i apply e45 lip stuff on them 4 times aday and its not enough:(:( also around my mouth get soo dry and is peeling alot.

Try neutrogena lip balm, it stopped my lips from peeling !!

And yes we are lucky there is no sun, as my face burns easily anyway even without accutane !

Good luck mate, I see quite some improvement there man even tho its been a really short amount of time. I reckon you'll clear right up by the end of your course! Go hard :]. I aint too sure how good your lip balm is, but you should try a little vaseline.

When my best mates from england came to see me, one of em brought a little vaseline container, which he gave me.. He usually has dry lips. It's blue and white, and its labeled "Vaseline Lip Therapy" .. Its small so you can carry it around in your pocket, and whenever you want you can refill the container from a normal tub of vaseline. Try and get the stuff with vitamin e. It works well for me, but I gota apply it quite often.

Stay positive man, and good luck.. !

I cant believe how fast this tuff is working still only on 20mg!! :D When i go to the derm in 2 weeks or so do you think i should up my dose or stay the same at the very start he stated that aslong as your side affects are minimal we will put you on either a further 7 months @ 40mg or 5 months @ 60 mg.... or should i ask him to keep it at 20mg i have hardly any side affects that are annoying just dry skin and lip and aching.

Also my school m8s are saying how good my skin is looking :D im really happy when they tell me. As a confident person with or without acne i told most of them that im on Roaccutane and we have a laugh and a joke about the side affects and that also if im dry during the day around my mouth they tell me and i put some moisturiser on!! there legends:D x

Your skin has improved so much! I'm on day 20 and have also seen improvement already, and I didn't really have an IB, either.

It seems like from your build, you could probably go up to 40 mg at the least, maybe you should ask your doctor.

Good luck!

Eyyyy Steven.

Did you ever get cysts before you started accutane?

I'm thinking about going on it but i never get cysts just 1000000 pustules. Just wanted to know if I may get cysts with the IB.

Results are amazing, hope it keeps up!

:catdance:

Next time I go to my derm I might ask for accutane because this antibiotic (doxy) isn't working (been a month)

talk about jinxing myself... yesterday got my first cyst ever :)

Thanks for the reply

Hi Steven

I live in the uk and have discovered a few products that are good for dry lips and dry skin.

A really good one is Burts bee's beeswax lip balm, i got mine from john lewis's not sure where else you can get it from. Another one is Elizabeth Arden eight hour cream skin protectant - now this does actually smell minging! But is really good for lips, especially just before you go to bed. You can get this from boots if they have an elizabeth arden counter, debenhams etc or even ebay if you dont want to go and buy it!

For your actual skin i have been using e45 cream - you can get this in loads of places - supermarkets, boots, superdrug etc and its cheap. Just before bed i put loads on and by the morning it has all been absorbed.

Hope this helps!!
