accutane log for mature man

Recommended Posts

I am a 40 year old male in Australia. I have suffered with spots and mild acne most of my life, but in my 30s I started getting more of the big lumps on my back. In the last 3 years I have been taking antibiotics which had a tempoorary effect, but about 2 months ago I had the worst flare up of my life with the entire right lower side of my back covered in red lumps and spots.

My dermatologist put me on 40mg per day ro-accutane 2 weeks ago. So far the only issues I have noticed have been dry lips which are easily managed with balm and slightly dry skin on my face which means more moisturiser.

My scalp has also been a bit itchy the last couple of days, which may or may not pass.

Mentally I feel totally normal, better than normal in fact due to the hope of finally killing off this problem.

The acne is starting to dry and it is already tstarting to show small signs of improvement.

Will keep you updated.
