good luck! Think about making a simple regimen whilst you're on accutane, your skin becomes more sensitive. It's probably a good idea to just wash twice a day with soap and no other products apart from a good plain moisturiser (a non-oi/non-grease one).

Keep us updated!(-:

This is DAY 7

=== Initial Breakout ===

I only had 2 pimples one of my nose (ugh) and the other on my forehead. So far so good they healed very fast like less than 2 days.

=== Initial Breakout ===

=== Status ===

Already a week! I am going to describe the side effects first:

- Face reddish

- Nose dry (No bleeding however)

- Lips getting dry (not chapped)

- Nose and forehead peeling a bit

I haven't experienced any other side effect so far. I am also working out and not having any problem.

- My face feels oily! My oil production has increased and I am not sure why. It is getting better now but at first it was not good. The feeling of an oily face is pretty bad, you feel like washing your face 10x a day.

Side effects for the first month

- Face reddish

- Nose dry (No bleeding however)

- Lips getting dry (not chapped)

- Nose and forehead peeling a bit

- Odd rashes on elbows and arms, itching a bit, nothing very important tho.

Skin FEELS GREAT! No more OIL! I feel normal, not like a damn greasy pizza.

Finally!

This is exactly one month after accutane.

I must say that accutane is the best thing that ever happened to me, it saved my life. It did.

If you tried everything and you are considering going on accutane, STOP THINKING AND CALL YOU DERM RIGHT NOW AS YOU ARE READY THIS

This is me after accutane, as you can see it's just a bit reddish, a few red marks but they are fading away quickly! And my face is a bit reddish because of the sun (still sensitive, and I play baseball outside 2-3 times a week)

Hi fred, congrats on the results!

I am just wondering where you had cysts at. the acne on your cheeks doesn't look cystic acne from here. smile.gif

Congratulations, dude.

Looks like my skin does not love Accutane that much like yours :-( I've been on Accutane for almost three weeks and Jesus Christ, my situation is still so bad that I have to hide myself at home like a depressed idiot :-(
