Just started on accutane

Long story short, i had mild acne for a while but it was persistent. Would get a pretty big bump like on my chin or nose then id go to the derm and they would give me some cream and tell me it would work. Used to work for like a month then itd stop working. So last week went to the derm and she prescribed accutane for me and i was surprised and happy at the same time. So yesterday i got my prescription and took my first pill last night. :) Currently taking 20 mg Claravis. Seems kind of low to me but maybe due to my height/weight (like 5'4'' and 120ish lbs).

ATM i have like a huge bump on my nose and another medium one on the side, and 2 medium-large ones under my right eye, and 2 semi medium ones near my mouth. My face doesnt look that bad but its kinda painfull to touch.. hopefully accutane will clear this up soon.. Hopefully im on my way to clear skin!
