Roaccutane log for Mild but persistent Acne 20mg with Pics

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

Not sure if people will read this but thought it would be a good idea to get my thoughts and feelings written down. And also some progress pictures.

I am 29 this month, and have been on roaccutane before, once in 2010 (I had cystic acne over my face, neck, chest and back) which kept me more or less clear until 2013. I went on another low dose course which kept me more clear with the odd breakout until August this year.

I'm hoping that this 3rd one will see me out for good as each time my acne is coming back less.

I started on the 11th October so today is my 7th day on 20mg. Only side effect is dry lips so far, but that's completely manageable. 

People will probably think its not bad at all but I've been dealing with this on and off for over 9years and I have tried so many different things and the only sure thing that works is roaccutane.

I am definitely having an initial breakout around my mouth and chin as you can see, it came out of nowhere and is so sore.

I will update each week with pics. Hopefully it'll help when I feel like it's not getting any better!

The left hand side is Day 1, and the right is Day 7.

See you all next week!
