I started a post regarding itchy face while on Isotretinoin but I wasn't getting no hits.

Do you experience any itching your face? I have this terrible itchiness that I just want to scratch my whole face. But every time I scratch it a layer of skin starts to peel (I normally scratch while i'm sleeping)

I am on 40 mg/day of Clarus and I use Cetaphil moisturizer with spf 15 (which is very thick... any recommendations) and aloe vera gel to moisturize overnight. I still have some existing cystic acne and I am on day 7 today.

Also, I'm form Canada so can you recommend anything that I could probably buy locally. I also live 20 min across the border so any help from our American friends are appreciated.

I'm looking for:

A new moisturizer with SPF (something not too thick)

Anything to help with the itch without compensating the effect of the isotretinoin

Any comments, ideas and products that I might need to make this experience tolerable

Thanks,

Oliver

Day 15

Hey, so I dont really see a big diff on my face for now but at least i didnt get new pimples and stuff. Looks like all the pimples that I had from my IB were old blackheads. Is it possible? maybe to clean the skin dunno but i still have some of them on my nose =/ Really no side effects for now and thats pretty cool, well maybe just dry lips but i dont really care..

Oh and I had a bad cold so I was too tired to update and stuff.

Day 18

Soooo my skin looks like shit! lots of new zits around my mouth and cheek... I hope its the IB cuz if its not accutane isnt for me ..

Does anyone know if the IB can still be active at day 18? Because I thought it was only during the first week or something.

Oh and I have like no side effects yet. Maybe my lips are a lil bit dry but thats it I dun even moisturize them so ye im pretty sure I need a higher dosage.

cheers

Hmm is it a bug bite maybe? Just to be safe I would call my derm and ask them what is going on. They will probably suggest you stop taking the pill until you can actually go in and see them. If you can't speak to the derm then I would suggest you stop taking your meds until you go in and see them just to be safe. Good luck!

Day 33

Hola amigos, so for now im doing pretty good, I think my IB is over (about time) and my face looks a lot better everything is healing redmarks etc. And no side effects :) Accutane is the best drug ever. Im addicted! :wub:

So if you're thinking about taking accutane just do it its the only thing working!

Wow seriously the rest of the zits that I have left on my face, they just don't wanna heal! I had this big zit next to my nose for about 2 weeks now and it still looks the same. Big, Red and Disgusting. Accutane really works but the healing is like 10 times slower. Just thought you guys should know :)

Day 49

Well I guess im doing good since im not breaking out anymore, but my old zits and redmarks are taking forever to heal! But no big deal really cuz I know they will. Im still feeling really good also. Had my bloodwork done yesterday first time took 2 hours and this 10 min so I was really happy with that. Also im starting to exercise again like crazy that means at least 90 min of training a day + joging. I just hope its not gonna be too hard for my body since im on accutane. But ye ill train for like 6 months then ill probably start boxing if im clear cuz i dont want ppl to hit me on my face if its full of zits lol it would be nasty. So ye doing good doing good. cyaz

Alright Im gonna need some help now. Why? Because nothing is healing on my face! And if it is well let me tell you that its healing really slowly. So I'd love to know your tricks or w/e to heal faster while on accutane. I mean my face is not doing bad right now , I dont get new zits really but the older ones are not healing at all and it pisses me off! Id take vitamin e but i think its not really good when ur taking accutane so meh. Anywayz waiting for you guys, im ready to put some poo on my face if I have too :lol:

Stick with it man, the course is gonna suck, but just imagine the end result when you wont have to worry about new zits popping up. Would a clean and clear complexion feel as good if you just woke up one morning and voila? Once you are done with your course you are gonna look back and say damn, look what i went through and endured, and your are gonna look in the mirror and think it was all worth it. Keep your head up and stay positive! Attitude is everything!
