Second appointment with the derm

I saw my derm this morning, and we agreed on continuing with the same dosage, that is, 60 mg/day. My side effects seem to have settled in nicely, but it's really not bad. My scalp, that was itchy in the beginning, isn't anymore, and my face isn't overly dry. Actually, it's nice to wake up and not have to wash my face because it's oily. My lips are dry, but I've been using Oriflame's Tender Care Protecting Balm, which is based on beeswax, and is light and smooth. For a while, the corners of my mouth were cracking up, which was kinda painful, since there's really no helping moving your lips, bit applying zinc helped, and now they're basically fine.

My IB came and went, but you can still see some red marks, and I'm hoping for those to improve. No active acne, though! Also, there's a red spot on my nose, which is from squeezing a blackhead, shame on me. So, let that be a warning. :lol:

I'm completely off alcohol, which is actually nice. In addition to that, I've also eliminated wheat from my diet. I've long suspected that I was lactose intolerant, but my stomach was being really weird about it, and now it turns out, as long as I'm of the wheat, I can have my beloved yogurt again!
