17-Years Old Female

hi everyone

i had acne ever since i was 11 and it became severe when i was 15 years old

so i went to a dermatologist and she gave me accutane and it did the job and cleared my severe acne but i don't quite remember the dose she gave me, and all i was left was light quite deep scars.

and i was really happy ever since this fall, my acne came back lightly =( so i went to another dermatologist and he gave me antibiotics and it did the job but then at the end of the summer my acne came back quite stronger so i panicked and went to the dermatologist and he gave me accutane again for 6 months, i just sometimes think that i exaggerated a bit and i didn't need accutane and it was from stress and an unhealthy diet.

Anyway, i started on the 23rd of September, 20mg daily.

and i had a bad breakout and redness from week 1 and by now, 3rd week, it calmed down but more and more are coming out under my face :(

but i noticed that my scars look better or is it just the dried skin covering it up, i'm not quite sure. i hope its healing.

i didn't notice any dried skin the first 2 weeks other than my dried lips. but now i'm starting to notice dry skin around my nose and around my acne.

And i'm having lots and lots of black heads on my nose that i didn't have before.

i think thats the way it works, it start by opening your pores first and then tighten them up

that's all for now

bye :*
