RESULTS

DAY 1

NEAR END

IPB Image

Hey guys,

I started accutane yesterday, after trying everything possible, doxycycline/minomycin/proactiv/clearsil, and 100 other different products. Antibiotics worked for a while but not for long enough :(

So had the bloods done, everything is fine, i've been put on 60mg a day, I just popped the pills for day 2 and no new developments, just some big cystic ones on my chin now, the usual ones on my right cheek, and a few here and there in random spots.

DAY 3

Not much to report, just on 60mg, no dry lips, nothing.. my chin has been a killer the last few days, about 6 whiteheads and 4-5 cysts, I know I shouldn't have popped the whiteheads but my chin was an absoloute mess.. just bracing for the IB

DAY 5

Well accutane has taken a back seat atm, i used to look forward to taking it but pimples are the least of my concern, still taking them of course! Collar bone doesn't feel too bad atm, just hope it heals right.

Beggining to get sligghtly drier lips now, but nothing has really changed on the face, however i am noticing more whiteheads.

Hey! Sorry to hear about your collarbone :comfort: Hope it gets better soon! Maybe you will heal quicker on accutane cause you will be at home relaxing a lot!

Hope things are going well! Stick it out, the IB will be over soon!

DAY 11

Today I have extremely dry skin, I am flaking everywhere, I don't think anything new has popped up besides 2 red cysts on my left cheek from yesterday...I am really hoping now my chin will start to clear up. Since starting tane I have got a few pimples on my forehead, I used to get huge breakouts on my forehead then they suddenly stopped, hopefully it's not coming back.. My lips are also getting even drier, I kind of started picking at them today :naughty:

I also woke up with a bleeding nose, first blood nose in my life

Thanks! I'm using CARMEX, but it's shiny as, I used a non-shiny blistex one but it sucked ass, I agree about the pimples scabbing within a day it's great haha. I'll look out fot dr. dans

DAY 12

I'm back at school tomorrow after having a week off with my bone break, in a way it was good because my face has been terrible all week and ultra ultra extremely oily, I took a photo and the shine is like whoa!, anyway that's gone now.

ooo day 12, nearly at 2 weeks! Face is very dry I will start to moisturise, I haven't bothered as i've been at home all week, the odd whitey has popped up, some near the jawline, nothing new on the chin! it is still a complete abomination however :(
