This is day 4. Most of what you see is just scarring. I have about 3 or 4 actual active spots right now. The overall tone of my skin has improved since getting off of proactiv. But those scars are pretty hideous.

      I do think Proactiv had a lot to do with my breakout. It helped while I was on it, but the second I tried to get off of Proactiv...this is what happened. Slowly at first but within a month my skin was a full blown MESS. I'm about 2 1/2 weeks into Accutane and I can only speak for myself but so far it hasn't been that bad. The obvious side effects have started. Dry lips, skin, and scalp. But it's nothing I can't live with. I've been tired, had headaches, had a pretty bad breakouts. And i'm sure there's more where that came from. But honestly, for clear skin, it's all worth it. I'm sick of hiding out in my house, turning down invites, slathering on make-up. I'm so over it all. 5 months of a little hell will be worth it. I have a log started in the "accutane logs" section of the message boards. Check it out...
