Smoyle127's Accutane Log

Recommended Posts

DAY 15

Lips are getting very dry, but face and back are clearing up greatly. Dry lips are very annoying because whenever I open my mouth, parts of my lips start bleeding. But my face is really clear...about 90%.

Smoyle man after I was my face and then try to open my mouth my lips just crack open and I get like paper cuts all on them. It hurts pretty bad even with stuff on em, but when you and like ketchup gets in there it hurts mega bad. Sounds like you are killing this mother, nice.

Yeah, the lips suck. But Accutane is doing it's job. I have like one pimple on the side of my nose, the rest are under the skin.

DAY 16

Again, dry lips. And like I said above, only one big pimple on the side of my nose, the rest are either very little or under the skin.

Yes, I'm from the USA - I was on OTC products like Clearisil, etc, then I went to Retin-A, then I went to Doxycycline/Retin-A, then finally I went to Accutane.

Face/back continuing to clear! biggrin.gif Lips aren't too bad, Vaseline does help a lot. Only very minor body aches. I have a one month checkup next Thursday I believe.

Now I'm really noticing the results. Face is clearing, only about 4 pimples on my face now, that are going away more every day. Back is really clearing as well. Lips are very dry, but like I always say, Vaseline helps! smile.gif

im doing the same dosage and probably only 2 weeks ahead of you..but i got a little tip for the chap lips(i use to use vaseline) they were all nasty and always peeled but i found the medicated blistex lip ointment which comes in a little box. it has made my lips practicaly normal just make sure to put it on before and after you get up/lay down to sleep.
