Recommended Posts

Hi, i'm Tony 20 years old, i just started accutane RIGHT NOW !! My skin at the moment is extremely oily, uneven, some actives pimples on both my cheeks , and some on forehead, also some on my neck too and they hurt like hell. I used to have pimples all over my face and now they died out but they leave disgusting brown marks all over the place, plus the active ones = look like sh!t. I am aware the fact that i will get dry skin and lips, what would u guys recommend ?? thanks in advance

Hey lafasta thanks, im gonna be on accutane for 5 months , how about yourself ?

My face today is a lot less oily, having some more whiteheads coming and the ones that came yesterday, thanks god they didnt get bigger, i also had some cysts , the big red painful ones with no heads.

There is one that is forming at the corner of my bottom lip (gosh !! ) My face is also A LOT less red compare to yesterday and the headache is getting lighter, dont have any side effects yet, but im ordering the Aquaphor from drugstore.com so when my lips get too dry, it will help somewhat.

Well, i've been drinking a lot of water lately, about 5- 6 glasses/ day (thats a lot more than what i used to) and i guess water does help on the dry skin part, so drink more WATER !!

Day 5

I noticed a lot less oily skin, woke up this morning and there was hardly any oil on my face.

The breakout stopped, meaning no more active acnes coming except for those that already broke out on my face 2 days ago due to the 1st initial breakout.

My skin started peeling BAD, around my mouth and both my cheeks its like really soft. I think thats good so i can get rid of marks on my face but then its also VERY unattractive.

Also, i noticed that my skin(face) become very sensitive, its more tighten. Still have light headaches, nothing that can't be dealt with.

It sucks because im starting to break out on my back and chest too, which i didnt experience, but oh well, i always say that as long as they don't pop up on my face, they can move to my back ....
