Alright, week 12Ã¢â‚¬Â¦ halfway done!
Definite improvement! I feel like the breakouts have almost stopped completely.. I have only had a few minor ones in the last week, really not bad at all. The cysts under the skin are getting smaller and are getting closer to the surface. Also, the ingrown hairs that have been under the skin for nearly a year have gotten close enough for me to finally extract them.. I know its probably not good to do that, but generally if IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m careful, it doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t result in scarring and only takes a week or so to healÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ just red marks for a little while. In the end its worth it to me though because otherwise those hairs just sit under the skin forever.
On another medical note, I had 4 wisdom teeth taken out on tuesday (which is why my mouth may look swollen in my pictures).. and yes, it was hell. I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t think the accutane affected the surgery at all, however, having my dry lips pried open for about 2 hours was probably worse than it usually is for other patients. In addition, I think it is taking my lips a lot longer to heal.. they still are cut up pretty bad. Anyways, it will be nice to have them out, so IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll deal.
I guess thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s all, not much more to report other than the fact that its going very well! Good luck to everyone else. For all those accutane users in the first couple of months, hang in there!! I know it can be rough, but it will get better!
