okay so im reece im 15 and have suffered from acne since i was 13 my dad also suffered from severe acne, it started off light and gradually got worse, ive tried clearasil/oxy/dove etc nothing worked and also prescription stuff aswell. my doc reffered me to a dermotoligist and today i take my first 30 mg tablet i will be taking this for a month then she will bump me up too 65 she says i have taken a load of pictures and will post them up as soon as i find the cable for my camera.

:surprised:

okay so week 1, not much seems to have changed still breaking out havent had the "initial breakout" hopefully i wont fingers crossed (YN) minor side effects dry skin and lips and hair but that means less washing my hair :D haha.

Hey reecee! Christmas will be 3ish(?) months for you and alot of people seem to start clearing then so I'm sure you'll be up for shopping and socializing. Hang in there :) And you haven't found your camera yet huh? haha

hey reece . i just started accutane yesterday , but the more i read about it it seems like everyone has that mini depression your feeling . but i guess thats what acne does to people . don't worry , by christmas you'll be at the hump and your breakouts will be less and your skin will clear up .

how many months did your derm put you on accutane for ? you're probably closer then you think .

good luck ! :dance:

week - 7

okay so i dont even know if anyone reads this anymore but it makes me feel better :D

so this week im still breaking out on the cheeks mostly whiteheads and its really Fxcking me off

people at school no me as the boy with spots now which is not good.

i cant bare to walk around in school with whiteheads on my face so i squeeze them and i dont know if accutane still clears it up when you do squeeze them? anyone know?

but hopefully i'll be clear soon just doesnt feel like its doing anything at the moment and im 7 weeks in apart from making me break out :@

week 9-10

so my left cheek has kinda stopped breaking out still red marks and about a whitehead once a week? right cheek had a massive breakout yesterday and yes i mean massive like 4 cysts right next to each other, it's kinda gone down now im trying to like dry it out my not putting moisturizer on it lol. i can barely lift things as my bones are aching so much skin remained dry but that can be controlled and lips the same. i only use vasleline on them at night and leave them during the day because i dont know if there's a balm that isnt glossy? if there is please suggest i will listen.

but yeah maybe an improovement on my left cheek? but im still not happy with what its like also im really really worried about marks from my poors from squeezing blackheads will this get better whilst on accutane or is there any lotions i can put on it that will help or any laser treatment please reply to that one and good luck with all of your accutane!
