*Deploying The Nuke* -=[Crazian's Accutane Log]=-

Recommended Posts

Introduction

Hey~

My name's crazian (not in real life).

History Book

One horrid day in my freshman year of high school, I noticed a pimple on my back.

-Then through the weeks, the pimple spread into many big pimple cysts.

-It moved up my back, to my shoulders, to my chest, up my neck, and then to my face

-I took a combination of minocycline, doxycline, and different topicals through the period of 2 years

-It cleared up a little, but when I had to get off the antibiotics it exploded again

-Now, I'm taking accutane!!

Specifics

-I have a little cystic acne on my chest and back. I have moderate acne only on my forehead, and many clogged inflamed pores on my nose and cheeks.

-So this is a 5 to 6 month treatment.

-I will be taking 40 mg the first month, then 80 mg the rest of the months.

YAYAY!

Log Info

I will post pics of my face and back probably once a week.

I will post probably once a day, when I can :)

LET'S DO THIS!

Day 1 Saturday, March 23, 2008

I just took my second pill. This morning, I've felt dizzy and had a headache, and I'm pretty sure it's due to dehydration. No new pimples have sprouted :whistle:

You've deployed the nuke? I'd prefer to call it a cluster bomb.

Good luck, you'll love the end result. Just keep reminding yourself of that.

My pic came from me messing around on Paint, lol.

Your picture has that element where you just can't look away. It's kinda cool.

Day 2, Sunday, March 23rd, 8:26 pm

*pops 3rd pill*

Today I woke up and my headache was gone :dance:

I think my body has kind of grown accustomed to this drug.

Well when I look really close in the mirror, I can see gunk coming out of all my pores and the blackheads on my nose and cheeks, so I think it's all coming out :dance:

No new spots XD

Day 3, Monday, March 24th , 7:37 pm

*pops 4th pill*

I think I got my day numbering wrong, this should be day 4 I think.. oh well XD

Today I had a looming empty feeling, I don't know what it is :redface:

But when I got out of the shower, I could see my skin a little dry, I guess I should enjoy this moisture.

I got 3 new spots on my forehead, too lazy to count the spots on my back :boohoo:

Thanks Crazian!

You're on day four. Excellent. Wait, no, day five by today.

Is it amazing?

Did your skin get really oily the first couple of days? Today I had a fricken oil slick all over my face. That NEVER happens to me. I have dry skin, which is odd, because most people with accers do have an excessive amount of oilyness. Not I. I'm just the oddball.

YES. I was really oily on my forehead, and somewhat on my cheeks o.0!

But now its drying up :surprised:

Day 5, Wednesday, March 26th, 2008

The good news: All the blackheads on my nose got really small and are hard to see unless your up close and personal :surprised:

The bad news: I broke out around my ear, jaw, and neck with acne that hurts (>.<)

GOOOOODDD.

I knew it was the 'tane. My mom's like, "That stuff is supposed to DRY your skin out. It would never make it oily, yada, yada...".

Haha mother. I was right.

Remember to moisturize! Are your lips getting dry at all? Do they hurt real bad?

Yea since accutane is supposed to purge your skin, I guess it gets rid of all the excess oil you had under there XD

I moisturized! My lips are a little dry, but my face only hurts a little when I open my mouth really wide :ninja:

Son,

go buy some Aquaphor. Now. Lotion section at deparment stores. And put it on like now to prevent your lips from falling off.

You can thank me later.

Wow I finished a whole pack of this stuff!

Day 9

So I still have some IB. My back and chest freaked out, and I have an active takin' up real estate on my face right now :boohoo:

But it's all good, every pimple that's sprouted since I've been taking that has appeared on my face dries up the next day and is hardly noticeable :)

Day 15\

Wow it's already week 2! I can't believe it :angel:

Side effects so far:

So I've been having really dry lips and skin but I have aquaphor for that shit.

My vision has been kind of funny. It's like I always have to blink, and I can't focus my eyes as well as I used to.

So here's the down lo:

All my Acne is dying! :dance: :dance:

The 2 actives on my upper lip are all dried up and about to die (they are skin color now)

The many active cysts on my neck are mostly all gone, there's some dry, skin-colored

stragglers now!

The acne on my back and chest are still there, but they're slowly suffering. They're shrinking and decreasing in number.

But... The blackheads on my nose and cheeks look more apparent than usual, probably because my skin looks so white now.

I love Accutane so far :D

Day 18

I swear this stuff is making me bipolar.

my skin is drrryyy

Cetaphil lotion.

Wash your face and when it is still moist, put on Cetaphil lotion (the cream variety, not the normal lotion crap that doesn't work).

Now look in the mirror, wave, and say your good-byes to dryness.
