Accutane Log - 26, M (Severe Acne)

Recommended Posts

I'm on my 5th day on acnetrex and my face is suddenly covered with pustules. I'm not sure if this is normal coz i never had this much pustules. It's so ugly. Please anyone who experience the same thing I'm going through right now. I scheduled an appointment with my doctor tomorrow which mean I'm going to miss work again. I can't go to work like this.

Day 6

I decided to write my log here instead of a blog. Some pustules dried up. Some pop out while I shower this morning. Still a bad day but I'm feeling positive today because I'm meeting my doctor again. Some pimples are ressurecting which sucks uhg! I'll try to get some sleep first to prevent myself from picking my pimples. I'm finally feeling a lot better now. Probably because I'm just home and missed work again. My boss is going to kill me. Or worse lose my job. I really hope things will get better soon! More good days to come please!

Day 7 (End of week 1)

End of Week 1, also post acne extraction with my derma. I went to the derma and she was like "Woah your pimples are all out" and I'm like "really?". Turned out thats exactly what she wanted so she can extract everything. You should have seen the horror in my face since. I was terrified since my face is really sensitive. I can't event touch it. Anyways, we went through with the procedure and I have to say, it was the worste feeling ever. I can feel every little pressure she puts on my sensitive face. It was horrible. I can also feel the blood flowing, thats how sensitive my face is lol, it can feel every little thing happening.

After the extraction I was like "Finally! I can now cry in peace" but guess what, there were more coming. She ask her assistant to get some glycolic acid. At first, i thought it was a solution and then I heard the assistant say that it was pure. She started spreading it all over my face and it stung like hell. God it was so painful. I endured the pain for a good 15 minutes until She wipe it off my face. The procedure continue with some more mask and more solition.

Finally the final touches. The assistant started to use a mist machine for the solution to penetrate deeper through my skin. It was not as bad compared to the extraxtion and glycolic mask. 

I'm face is all red after. I went home, ate and drunk my meds. I'm hoping for a great week ahead of me. Also, good luck to all of you who are fighting acne!
