im on my 32nd day of roaccutane 70mg, yes im counting the days haha

so far ive been experiencing the lot and my initial breakouts pretty bad. I once had this spot before accutane which was horrible until it finally popped, when it did pop this red ball thing came out, it was pretty small but it was a shock to see, after a day or two of popping it cleared up pretty fast. Since accutane ive had about 3 of these spots that leave black marks on my face like a cut with quite alot of blood, they're not a huge problem but i was just wondering what they are? because i cant decide what type of acne they are unless they are small cysts that have raised to the surface. I think im going to be one of those people who break out throughout the course, even before accutane i woke up everyday with fresh spots and my acne was constantly moving around.

Nose bleeds are a problem aswell, tonight i had one in the shower which was a mess haha. I dont mind so much if im at home but if i have one in college or in a driving lesson or an exam it could be a disaster! ive been putting vasaline up my nose, is that a stupid idea?

Also dry lips, vasaline doesnt seem to do anything, the only thing that does is moisturising lip balm but only for a short amount of time like 30 mins until theyre completely dry again. They're peeling aswell as the really dark bags under my eyes, i look like a zombie which is the hardest part. Does anybody know anything for bags under eyes?

Dry skin... my skin is dry all over, especially my face and scalp. If i get stressed or hot i start itching everywhere. I use simple intensive moisturiser which i recommend but its pretty thick, makes my face red and its shiny. I use it on my face and my body and last night i put it on my scalp because i couldnt sleep haha! it worked! I really want to find a moisturiser thats practically invisible, it doesnt need to be great, just to loosen up my skin before college, otherwise i go to college with a greasy, red face and that doesnt complement my acne at all. I feel like evrytime i mositurise, my spots get so much worse. One night i didnt shower because i had no time and aswell as not moisturising, the next day i woke up with a much more even skin tone, much less redness and improvement! that night i moisturised and i lost the progress i had made. I dont mind having slightly flaky skin, i just cant stand how tight it is. Ive found putting small blobs of sudocreme on red spots reduces inflammation, however i have to be careful not to put it on my face too much because it drys the skin.

On a positive note im still glad im on accutane and i know people have it much worse than me, i have a really long list of side effects aswell as the ones above but theyre bareable, i still recommend accutane, ive probably made it sound much worse than it is haha. Im going to my derm soon, any specific things i should ask about or request? any product suggestions for any side effects would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for reading!

I use Simple hydrating light moisturiser which is perfect for my skin - not too greasy and for me, lasts pretty much all day. I also use E45 around my eyes at night :) oh and vaseline intensive care - the yellow botttle is amazing for moisturising skin. For lips, you can't beat carmex. Literally i don't go anywhere without it :) If anything, buy yourself some carmex.. you won't regret it :) x
