Started my Accutane course today! I'm so excited!

Most of my marks are red marks so I'm hoping accutane really helps with prevention and the curing of my skin.

I'm starting on 20's and then working up to 40's.

I'm so excited!!

I think I may take a picture each day or week to show my progress.

Haven't decided.

Anyways! I just wanted to post a blog and keep smilin'

I'm so happy to finally start.

Hey!! GOod luck on your course. :)

I also started at 20, and am now at 40 (second month on 30.) I've had almost no side effects, and although progress may be a little slower, I think its a good way to go to minimize side effects.

As for red marks, I recommend: EMU OIL. its worked better than anything I've tried to fade them quicker. Also, it doesn't cause breakouts.

they say vitamin E oil is good, but the emu works great for me.

i'll read your log to follow your progress. :)

I will look into Emu Oil!

I didn't like Bio oil that much, and I don't think I can use ACV anymore.

Everyone else: Thank you! It means a lot.

I wish I could be on 40 mm already > .<

I took my second dose of 20 today.

I love it.

i love being able to eat whenever and drink milk again. With tetracycline dairy wasn't a good idea and I had the eat around taking the pill.

My skin is looking alright, same spots breaking out since the days of tetracycline, nothin' different.

Still using topical, and probably will until I feel my skin telling me not too.

I feel awful, though, these pills are so expensive. I'm going to look for a job.

Took another 20 today. I'm wanting to be on 40's already haha.

I really don't mind my acne now, knowing that it's just a waiting game now.

I have my prom coming up, and it's not making me nervous at all.

Stopped going 20's to taking nothing the next day.

Now I'm on straight 20's for awhile. Time to build up.

Can't wait until I start taking all 40's.

I haven't dried out yet, so I'm just waiting..

Rollin' with the 20's.

Took a lot of pictures last night at prom, knowing that I would not like seeing them later.

I had a lot of fun, didn't think of my acne at all.

Looking through the pictures, I really don't mind the acne face.

I've had it for so long, it's not like if people see the picture they'll be like. Omg, his face. It'll be yep, there's Cam!

I'm probably known for the acne, and I really don't mind that.

Because when I get cleared, people are gonna be all. Woahhhh.

Another Day, Another 20.

Anyone know when dryness kicks in?

Saw the pictures from prom, didn't really like them. Acne everywhere, but who cares. I had fun that night.

I'll be able to look back when I'm clear to say at least acne didn't keep me from prom.

Yeahh, I'm not sure. My derm is weening me onto the medicine and I don't really see myself being clear by the end of my six months because first he was gonna go up to 60's but then when I got home, he changed it to only 40's..

Another 20 today.

Breaking out in nodules. I hate these things. They always linger on my skin and usually I only have one at a time.

I have about four right now. It's kinda disheartening to know they'll be there for awhile..

Took another 20 today.

My active acne keeps being flat against my face, and then the next day they are elevated again. Why?

I keep getting clear puss when I accidentally press against them.

The redness is going away from my face. It's pretty cool.

Yet again, another 20.

I like my hair long because I can use it to cover some acne, but I'm getting it cut today.

I just don't care anymore, and It might clear me up a bit if I cut my hair.

I just wanna get rid of these two nodules.

Day 10!

Started my first 40!

So excited!

The color from my face seems to be fading.

I had an active spot coming up under my skin on my chin, and it's already gone down dramatically in size.

My neck really hurts, I know it's the accutane.
