I didn't have time to post these yesterday. Looks like things are getting worse. For the few days I was taking sotret I realized that although I was breaking out more, the cystic acne healed much quicker than normal. I stopped taking the sotret on Friday and have noticed that the cysts that were just coming up at that time are taking longer to resolve - hence the rather horrific landscape of the right side of my face. I'm still having the burning sensations in my abdomen. I'm a little concerned about that. It sort of comes and goes. I get it in the morning and sometimes after I eat or randomly between meals. Perhaps its just a little indigestion or acid reflux. Anyway, life goes on.
