Starting Accutane tomarro!?

Recommended Posts

Like uaa i dont know how to put what im thinking....im kinda scared to go on accutane but i want it cause i know it will help me out (it should). :ninja:

Ummm sum questions.

How long does it take to get the "Chaped Lips" side affect? :think:

my acne isent "that bad" some active acne but mostly hella redmarks and some inflmation,

what will the Accutane do and how long does it ususaly take?

What i mean is since i dont have "Super bad acne (tons of cysts or stuff)" i just have some nodules and cysts and redmarks right now, if i start taking accutane what will happen will i break out in tons of cysts and noduels? or will my acne stay the same it is now for a while and just start going away? or what? :confused:

The Derm. just flew threw everything and i dont know much, all i kno is the side effects.... :snooty:

and my derm. said i will pry get dry skin everywhere....when they say everywhere..is that EVERYWHERE lol? :shifty:

ug i dont know what else im thinking im tired so im going to sleep, if anyone posts back thanks ahead of time :D ill be back

The side effect of dry lips ussually starts within two weeks or so, but some people dont get it well into their course, but this is rare.

Accutane will slowly lessen the appearance of those lessions. After a while you will notice your skin getting smoother, but be patient. And yes, that means everywhere!

So be prepared and good luck!

Whether or not you get pimples from the sun is your own personal experience. You were right about why you shouldn't be in the sun on Accutane without sunscreen, because you'll burn easier.

My face has been getting more oily too. A lot a lot alottt of people report this, then the oil just goes away all of a sudden! Give it a few weeks.

And haha, I take Claravis too, the packaging is out of control.

Uaa question, i woke up with a dry skin patch on my cheek and a dry noduel skin patch

i was dumb and pealed all the skin off them and when i pulled the dry skin off the noduel puss oozed out lol.

but i just threw some of my Vaseline Lip Therapy Advanced Formula skin proctant on the dry patches, is that ok? or should i put lotion on it??

and should i leave the dry skin patches alone or peal them lol?
