One month recap

So I checked in with my dermatologist today and he upped my dosage of Clavaris to 30mg twice a day. All in all this was a good month, I've definitely noticed my skin has been smoother and I'm getting a little less acne. Hopefully during this month I stop getting acne altogether but I know it's a 6 month process so I'm not sure when it's going to stop. My left cheek has no actives at all which is amazing but I do have scarring and two ugly scabs. My right cheek is still looking messy. I have a large mark on my face because two cystic zits basically combined into one large one and the scabdoesnt look like he's going anywhere and will definitely scar. I also have an insanely painful one under my lip but other than that all my actives are super small and go away fairly quickly. My chin has never been smoother in it's life and my forehead is getting there but again, all scarring is more prominent because the skin just doesn't heal as fast while on accutane. I asked my dermatologist about scarring and he said the best thing to do is use vitamin e capsules (break open the capsule and put the liquid on individual scars) he also recommended a silicone based cream or mederma but because those may be harsh I was told NOT to use it until I am off of accutane. So for now I'm only spot treating scars with vitamin e and actives with calamine lotion. I haven't noticed a difference with those two yet but again I'm sure it will come with time. Let's see how this month goes!

Why me?

Hello everyone. I am asking the question it seems we all want an answer to. I was living a very happy life. 3 wonderful kids and a good husband... until this summer. Slowly my face changed and day by day it became taken over by acne. It started as a demodex issue but when that became under some sort of control, my hormones went crazy. So now I have to not only fight daily against a terrible reinfestation, but I am now taking spironolactone to block my body from too much testosterone.  My jawline and cheeks are broken out and yet crazy dry from my endless fight. 2 weeks into taking spironolactone I am aware people say it takes 3 months,  but I am not so sure I can go through this extreme breakout and ugliness for another 3 months.  I feel alone, lost, and ugly. I guess I just felt like I had to tell someone.  Thanks everyone for listening.

¡Primer dia!.

Bueno, y este creo que será el inicio de mi viaje, comentaré suavemente, soy un chico de 19 años, sufrí problemas de acné desde hace 2 años, vivo en Colombia, controlo mi tiempo de vida con ayuda de "Retin-a" "Lo que no quiero usar y volveré a ser el acné, ni un poco más de 2 meses que volveré a utilizar, pero ya no me funciona como antes, la verdad lo único que cambiaré el limpiador". ¿Qué es esto? ¿Qué es lo que me gusta? ¿Qué es esto? : -Rutina en la mañana. -Lavarme la cara con un jabon para pieles sensibles. (Alergibon avena o leche), noto que es el único que no me saca el acné y es suave. -Aplicarme un hidratante. [Estanques clarinete b3, posee niamicina), compuesto beneficioso para la piel. -Aplicarme un bloqueador solar, me aplico el "Gel umbrella", que es un protector físico que no me saca el acné. UNA  -Rutina en la noche. -Lavarme la cara con el mismo jabon. -Esperar que seque por lo menos 30 minutos. -Aplicarme el Retin-a cuando sepáis que no me dara mas luz de ningun tipo, justo antes de acostarme. UNA  -Aparte de esto, me secare la cara todos los dias con una toalla diferente, ya diario cambiare las fundas de las almohadas. -No consumir nada que tengas productos lacteos, y tampoco consumir azucar en exceso en forma de dulces entre otros, y también de lado las carnes rojas igualmente, solo comere pollo y pescado. -Me tratare con mucha suavidad la cara en todo momento. UNA  Balance general. -Acne activo: 10. (Tengo muchas manchas y cicatrices iguales)   Tambien estoy tomando un suplemento de "Acido linoico", una vez al dia, el cual trae "Evening primrose oil", y "GLA".

6 months since last update

I haven't logged into this site for 6 months. That is an indication in itself that in the last 6 months my skin has been manageable. I will post an update pic, as I've had a lot of success taking zinc picolinate (22mg Solgar brand). One a day (for the last 8 months). The only place I still seem to get spots is around my lips. I've also been sticking to a much better diet. I have a checklist for each day and a really good day means I eat something raw at each meal, no sugary foods, and a raw green at some point. And no alcohol. If I do this, my skin gets about as close to perfect as it's ever been. By that I mean I still have small pimples. And before my period they seem to increase. But generally, life has been better because my skin has been better. Will post a pic as soon as the massive spot on my lips goes down. Edit: adding pic now cause I’ve got no reason to hide on here!

Consistent clear skin!

So my skin has been CONSISTENTLY CLEAR for MONTHS!!! I’m so glad. This is a new world for me. Getting 1 or 2 pimples is bad for me and it used to be like having 5 or 6 at a time was normal!! This is my regime now!!!   mornings: acne.org face wash cetaphil moisturizer  Occasionally the herbalism face scrub from lush (this makes my skin SO SMOOTH and bright!)   nights: wash off makeup with acne.org face wash  another cleanse with acne.org face wash  herbalism lush face scrub  occasional tea tree oil face mask from the body shop (I like throwing in a consistent face mask just bc it makes me feel like I’m taking care of my skin. And this one is supposed to be for acne!) BP ALL OVER FACE (I’m so afraid to stop using BP. I definitely use less than before, just enough to put a thin layer on my face but I feel this fights away all my major breakouts)   also, another ABSOLUTE KEY REASON my acne has gone away is that I have completely CUT OUT DAIRY from my diet!! I cannot stress this enough. I don’t know why, but I am just extremely sensitive to it! I’ve been cutting out dairy for the past 2 years and I ALWAYS give in from time to time bc I love ice cream/ sweets! And I have experimented with it enough that it’s 100% something that will make me break out. I’ve talked about this in my other posts. Another reason why my skin has stayed clear is bc I no longer have dairy, and when I do give into dairyy skin breaks out within a week or two. This isn’t for everyone!! But just try it if you are desperate. Go a solid month without dairy and see what happens!! (Don’t forget dairy Can sneak your way into food!!! Usually breaded chicken, pastries have dairy and don’t forget that powdered milk is in a lot of stuff! Butter is dairy! Those kinds of things sneak their way into food. So if you are trying it out don’t forget to always check ingredients!)   these are all current pics pics of my skin!! (With foundation but there are NO BUMPS)

Month 1- Thayers Witch Hazel Aloe Rose Petal

After beginning a new lifestyle of going natural, my skin has been broken out more than half of the month. As is was the holidays and i was eating greasy, chocolatey food, I still feel like something else is contributing to my acne as well. So being back at school for a new semester I decided to start new natural products and give them a try to see how it will effect my skin. I have very, very sensitive dry acne prone skin but Its time to try something that might potentially work for me. Im beginning to eat healthier as well. I use Cetaphil facewash, and loreal moisturizer. I heard using pure coconut oil helps as a moisturizer especially because I have such dry, patchy, flaky skin. Apparently Thayers toner doesn't dry out? I started two nights ago, using morning and night after washing my face. Everything looks the same... If you are debating going on a drug such as spironactalone, read my past year blog on it. But for now, Ill write back when I see any changes in my skin. Fingers crossed.

update...5 years later

hi everyone. i first want to apologize for having never kept up with this, i think i just forgot about it once things got rolling... then continued to forget until now. the only reason i remembered was because i read that my email was taken from this website when it had the data breach a few years back... anyway. i will update you all as to how things went and are now. i started accutane at 14 and ended right around my 15th birthday. i took it during winter (DO NOT RECOMMEND) and my entire body became dry. i think i ended up on accutane for a total of 6 months. i can't remember if my derm kept me on for an extra month. anyway, the breakouts didn't seem that bad in the first few months and then my face just got better and stayed that way. my lips were constantly chapped and so was a lot of my body (TMI: fissures EVERYWHERE are real and they hurt so keep yourself hydrated). i used waxalene and aquaphor and they were a pretty good combination from what i can remember. just do everything you can to put moisture into your body because that was by far my worst side effect. other than that, ipledge and monthly blood work was annoying but necessary. in the end, i ended up with a face completely clear of pimples and with only left over scarring and hyper-pigmentation from popping pimples and other trauma. my face is pretty combination-dry since i've taken accutane, and it was pretty combination before, so don't worry, the dry-ness won't stay forever most likely. in the course of the past 4-5 years, i've never had a huge pimple on my face just show up randomly. if i got any pimples, they were tiny and probably stress-induced. if they were larger, they were probably because i was touching them so much because i couldn't tell if it was a pimple or not (it had been so long since i had a major one, so yay!) and was getting oils and dirt all over my face. i constantly get compliments on the clearness of my skin and hardly ever wear foundation (only if it's the holidays or i'm going out or something). so, i'd consider myself an accutane success story! sorry again for never updating, i just forgot. i hope this brings hope to anyone about to take, in the process of, or just getting off accutane to know that there is hope and longevity in this hard regimen. you will be rewarded! all the pain and annoyance pays off, trust me! minor info, but the way i wash my face now is with cetaphil daily cleanser, biore pore-removing scrub 2-3/week, and cerave moisturizer. i'll do a face mask on occasion (aka sleepovers with friends or in other social situations, or just relaxing with my roommate in my dorm) and don't breakout. my nose has a lot of clogged pores and blackheads, which were fixed while on accutane, but have since come back, so i need to figure out how to fix that. beside the point, though... anyway, this will probably be my only update. i may come back and check this post in a bit to see if there are any questions or comments, but other than that, this is it! good luck!, former accutane user & success story, 5 years running (i will not be adding pictures for privacy sake, i'm sorry.)

Week three recap

I've almost finished my first month and it's pretty exciting actually. I feel like I'm handling the dryness well, I'm still dealing with the cold which absolutely sucks. My pink eye is gone but I have like a broken blood vessel which we do think is accutane related not pink eye related. Sadly I lost my Burt's bees chapstick so I've learned that all of my chapsticks I used to love downright suck. I love EOS and blistex but they do nothing for the dryness. Also because I've had such a bad cold and I'm constantly blowing my nose, my nose is always dry but I've found that a saline nose spray and excema cream or chapstick helps. Even though really chapstick does nothing for your lips it helps with a raw nose. AND! I haven't been getting acne around my nose as I usually would if I got stuff like that on that area. I'm still breaking out a little bit and the scabs are taking forever to heal. My scars are also not going away very well either. The pictures I attached show how red my skin is with both the scars and actives, but the darker/brighter red ones are the active zits while all the lighter pink is just scarring! Believe it or not my skin is getting very smooth! It's hard to cover all the redness with makeup because all my marks are kinda dark, but seeing how easily putting on foundation is makes me happy (doesn't stay on too well with all the flakiness though) the last picture is me with makeup, and to clarify- I don't wear actual foundation, I wear bb cream. I've always been scared of foundation because its always too heavy and breaks me out, so im not sure how well this would be covered with something heavier. You can also see the mark on my eye that hasn't gone away since my pink eye has cleared up, not quite sure what to do with that as it doesn't bother me and I don't want to make another trip to the doctors so I will just wait for my next dermatologist appointment.

Side effects!!!

So it hasn't been three weeks quite yet but I wanted to update. So accutane really does make your immune system absolutely suck. For the past few days I've felt kinda gross but yesterday it hit me like a truck. Honestly I've been pushing aside my cold thinking it was mostly accutane related. My red eyes I just thought it was my contacts and I shouldn't be wearing them so I wore them for a shorter amount of time. My sore throat I thought it was just dry because accutane dries you out like CRAZY. But I realized when I was getting all super congested it was most definitely a cold. But because my immune system is struggling so hard to fight it I feel straight up sick. I'm so mucusy and  drainy that I now have pink eye and an ear infection. Thankfully though I went to a doctor and they gave me some heavy antibiotics so it fights it ASAP because they know that my body probably won't be able to fight it by itself. So anybody on accutane as soon as you feel like something is wrong... Take care of it like you're really sick because it's going to be a lot worse on accutane. Hopefully everything clears up in a week or so but I'll continue with updates. You can also see in this pic how dry my lips are, it's gotten to a point where they just bleed. Everything is still dry and my scabs are falling off if I just run my fingers over it. Also  sometimes my current acne/scabs start bleeding without messing with it be it's so dry.

TCA Cross + Subcision + Low Dose Accutane

* Day 10 * ( Picture : Left (Before treatment), Right (Today) ) Almost all scabs fell off and honestly, I do not see any improvement at all. 3-4 months ago, my Dr have done test spot with TCA for 2 of my scars. This time, after the treatment, I have not moisturizing at all and the scab was hard and took longer to be fell off. After scab fell, these tested spots were very red and took about 10 weeks to be normal. This time, I moisturized soooooo much, like at least 5 times/day. I found out that when I moisturize too much, the scabs did not become hard but rather, stay on the skin like another jellish skin layer on top of my skin. I noticed that after these jellish scabs fell, the treated scars are not even red or anything, it is just basically the same as before the treatment, literally. The scar/scab condition after the treatment when I did not moisturize and when I moisturize a lot was totally different.  I know it is little too early to tell whether I am improved or not, but its been 10 days and there should be at least a little bit of improvement. Most of the treated scars are not even red, it is seriously the same as before  I am assuming that I moisturized too much that I did not allow the scabs to form completely (or to be hard), so the acid did not do much for the scars.. my skin reacting totally different than before when I did not moisturize much after the test-treatment.  Looking at these scars which are not even red, it seems like the healing is already done (and I heal very poorly and slowly).    Would this be okay...? I am so worried that the treatment did not go well.. Anyone has any ideas?   Thank you so much

Week 2 recap

So this is a pretty late week two recap mostly because I just have no clue what the days are anymore because I don't have classes over the holidays lol. Anyway my skin hasn't changed much since two days ago which would have marked end of week two. The dryness really isn't bothering me at all lately, I got a new moisturizer which is absolutely heavenly and the only dryness I've been dealing with is around my nose and lips. I've been using otc excema cream around my nose and regular Burt's bees chapstick. I only have to moisturize like twice a day but I have to reapply chapstick constantly so that's kind of a pain. New zits are still popping up but they really aren't alllll that bad, what bothers me most is that they are constantly scabbing up and falling off. Same with my acne scars, it's like they don't retain moisture and flake off multiple times a day which is so weird to me. My spots are also like bright bright red so it's pretty hard to cover. ALSO! Foundation and contacts are a pain in the ass so im just wearing glasses and avoiding skin makeup unless I need it.

Diet Changes....Again

Today in a moment of utter frustration, i took myself to barnes and noble and purchases a book on inflammation.  Due to other reasons beside my skin, I believe my body is definitely in an inflammatory state.  Things i notice include:   not going to the bathroom regularly dealing with a cold going on a month now (even though the weather has not been all that bad) feeling overall lethargy low energy levels massive moments of brain fog emotional highs and low   I haven't been eating right for my body for a while and i'm experiencing so much emotional stress that started off at work and snowballed when my friend passed away.  It's gotten work as my dad is now sick.  I can't afford to fall apart now.   I wanted to try this before illicitng help from a nutritionist (thankfully covered by insurance).  I will also follow up with my naturopath in February or March and hopefully i can get guidance moving forward. In the meantime, feeling so depressed with all the circumstances happening in my life to people that I love.

Subcision + TCA Cross + Low Dose Accutane (Photos)

* Day 7 * - I have been moisturizing many times to make sure all the spots moist. This made all the scabs to be jellish? and while I very softly applying cream on my face one of the scab fell off. This spot was very deep pitted ice pick scar and it seems to be wider  (but the depth is hard to tell whether it is improved or not- no visual improvement)  - 2 other scabs fell off for more swallow scars and they became wider (again, no visual improvement in depth wise, so far). It is certainly less red compared to the very deep pitted spot. I guess, redness after the treatment is proportional to the scar depth? and TCA concentration. - Since yesterday, I am not moisturizing often as I am afraid I might scrub the scabs while applying creams. I am going to apply creams to the spots w/o the scabs now.  - I felt very tingly itchiness on random part of my face. - I tried all my best to keep all the scabs as long as possible but within a week, 2 fell of naturally and 1 fell off by my mistake (pretty much no improvement for this scar) - Planning to start taking Accutane again, 20mg/week.   Its only been a week, so its hard to tell whether I am healing okay or not (I am very sensitive and my healing ability is not good at all) but so far, looking at the 3 spots with scabs fell off, there is pretty much no improvement. I see spots being wider for sure and no visual improvement in depth. Redness is there always. Hopefully, they will heal well over time My next treatment plan is ( Intracel RF + Duet RF  or maybe add TCA Cross for some deep scars)  - 3 months later.   Cheers,

Subcision + TCA Cross + Low Dose Accutane (Photos)

* Day 3 * - Seems like scabs are slowly forming  - Most of the treated spots became so much darker - Trying to keep spots moist all the time (3~5 times a day) with polysporin and Taro-Mupirocin  - Swelling slowly going down but still there - I had 4 subcision point and 3 of them are healing pretty well but one of them has a really big hole and does not seem to be healing well. - Had small bruises around the subcision points and I felt a little pain and discomfort but I feel better on 3rd day   It is  frustrating and depressing to look at the mirror every day and see all these scabs and dark treated spots on my face.. it is very mental draining.. I will try to stay strong and focus on something else.. all I can do now is to wait and hope I heal well, I guess  Have a great holiday everyone!

TCA Cross + Subcision + Low Dose Accutane

So after a very long purging period (almost 3 months) I finally did first session of TCA Cross + Subcision. Treatment did not go well but I think it was okay. One of the scar has excess TCA around it and it became quite dark.  My Doctor did not really do TCA paint but rather treated all the scars (ice pick and boxcars) the same way, TCA Cross. He treated my right cheek with 50% TCA and left cheek with 70% for some reason. Maybe because my left cheek is more severe? It could be good comparison, I guess.. Anyways, I have attached the pictures, first 2 are before the treatments, last 2 are right after the treatments.  I will post another pictures within few days after scars are formed.    My treatment plan (3 months apart): - TCA Cross + Subcision  x 3 - Intracel RF + Duet RF x 3 - Subcision + Scultra (maybe if needed depending on how I heal) - Erbium peel or TCA Peel or Laser resurfacing (after when all the treatments above is done, if needed) - Picosure for pigmentation    Cheers,

Month 3, Day 83

Hey everyone so my dermatologist kept me on 60mg and honestly I was really disappointed. Right after I saw her my skin broke out pretty bad and left me feeling pretty discouraged. I am going to ask her to up my dosage next month. Here are my progress pics for this month. Nothing new to report and probably wont have anything new to report anymore aside from the fact that I did break out bad this month. I have only two months left on accutane after this month and I am so scared to get off of it. My skin has never been better and I am really afraid that as soon as I get off it it will be like I never even went on Accutane. If anyone has tips on how to fade hyper pigmentation let me know!

Week 1 recap

Ok so it has been a week since I started and everything everyone has said about the first week is true. My skin isn't way too flaky, definitely my nose and a little of the insides of my cheeks but it's not drastic. My lips won't stop chapping but blistex has been so helpful for me. By the end of the day though my lips just feel covered in chapstick and still dry but it feels amazing to put on chapstick. Honestly I might need a new chapstick. My acne though, well anything that would have formed is forming right now and all I can say is that it HURTS. The pictures I'm adding is also in bad lighting so everything looks worse. I have gigantic painful one on my chin, my forehead, and each cheek, and they're all in akward placements so they hurt a lot no matter how I move my face. I have really bad self control so it's been really hard to not pick at them but I also learned that when they say absolutely don't pick at it. Don't pick at it. This nasty boi on my chin may not look like waaaaaay to bad but I haven't had this painful sit in a long time (also important to note that I don't usually get painful acne, I just get crazy clogged pores, whiteheads, and just red bumps constantly, but I don't typically get cystic acne. This really helps show that everything is being pushed out of my face in any form it can take) so anyway I decided to put maybe just a little pressure to get it to calm down and so much came out of it but it hurt my skin so badly my eyes watered up. I barely squeezed at all and there was no way I was willing to squeeze any harder to actually pop it. So when they say don't pick, just don't, because you're a million times more sensitive and you're really just going to make it look worse. even if you picked at a similar kind of zit before accutane, there's probably much more gunk in there and you aren't getting it out until it decides it's gone. All in all my first week hasn't been too bad, it's just the painful acne that I'm not used to is getting to me. I can deal with the dryness and constant water drinking (water is seriously the tastiest drink so I have no problem at all) so let's hope my skin starts to feel better soon!

Day 5

My skin has started to get pretty tight and my nose is getting flakier each day. My skin is still pretty oily but now that it's getting dry it feels weird to put on extra moisturizer. Also all my current acne is PAINFUL even if they were just little white heads, and everything in my skin that would have formed eventually is forming at the exact same time. So I'm dry oily and breaking out. I was told to expect an initial breakout so I wasn't surprised when these guys started to pop upon my face but I'm still sad it's happening. After this post I'll only post weekly updates with pictures, the daily updates were mostly to track how long side effects would take to kick in. It seems to have only taken five days, wish me luck and if anyone has recommendations let me know!

Day 2

Ok so technically day 2 is day 3 and day 1 was the morning after I took the first pill but whatever. I was not expecting it to affect me this fast. My skin hasn't started to change any which isn't a surprise but I am DRY. I heavily moisturerize normally anyway but after I showered today my nose was definitely a little flaky on one side but my eyes and the inside of my nose are super dry. I'm going without contacts today so my contacts don't fall out from being too dry. I'm taking 30mg of claravis and I'm 100 pounds so I guess because I'm lighter it's taking effect faster, my friend is 150 and he started out on 30 and didn't have any effects for a week or so. It might also be because it's 30 degrees outside. I will be moisturerizing like crazy from now on, will also be looking into nasal spray and eyedrops

Winter 2018 Update

I never set out to update by seasons but it seems to be happening that way.  Skin for the past few weeks had been slightly less inflamed and not as much clusters of acne.  Now that the weather is getting really cold and i am really sick, my skin is not happy.  I am having clusters of inflamed acne pop up on my left side by mouth and chin.  I also have a ton of non-inflamed acne on both outer cheeks.  My chin has been pretty decent since beginning the Elidel and Soolantra on there.  My forehead is doing well too.  I find that every time it gets to the point my skin is flaring up, i categorize it as the worst its ever been.  When it goes back to a decent state, i then end up feeling like an idiot.  Right now, in this moment, this inflammation is leading me to have those obsessive thoughts about my skin such as: it's getting worse everyone is looking at me it makes me look ugly i want to hide in a shell i am embarrassed But the fact of the matter is that I am simply NOT that important.  People don't care about my skin at all and even though my acne is very noticeable, it's a minuscule part of me and has NOTHING to do with who i am as a person.  It took me a long time to acknowledge the self hate and contempt that i have had for my skin due to embarrassment but you know what, it's something that i want to change and I can change.  It's one of the few things in this whole equation that i have control of.  I may not like my acne but i damn sure will NOT let it be the defining thing about me.   Merry Christmas to everyone.

I went to the dermatologist yesterday and after fighting insurance I was finally able to start accutane. The brand I'm using is Clara is, which seems to be a very common brand of isotretinoin.  Clearly nothing has changed yet but it's my first day so this is what my skin looks like before accutane. I've never had several acne, only moderate acne but because of its persistance for 7 years my dermatologist finally recommended this for me and I'm SO excitedI was told to stop using "harsh" acne products during the course of accutane so I stopped using my salicylic acid toner a few weeks prior to begining, which of course didn't make my skin happy and I have bumps all over my face. I already use a very gentle face wash and moisturizer, but I'm not sure if my moisturiser will be enough for me in the coming weeks, especially because it is prime cold weather season. I can't wait to start seeing results.

Low Dose Accutane (D109) / TCA Cross (D94)

Low Dose Accutane (10mg/day) - Day 109 It took me about 109 days until the initial break is finished.. holy... Face became extremely prone to scarring > most recent pimples left me one deep box car and one deep ice pick scars (Yellow circled);  Face so dry It is certain that the side effects is certainly less severe for low dose Overall, for past 109 days, my face got worse and worse everyday  -TCA Cross: test treated - Day 94  (Red circled) I thought they got improved about 15% in depth but this week they became very deep pitted ice pick scars. I was comparing them with my old pictures and I am certain they got worse maybe due to Accutane? One of the treated scar got conned with another scar. I made an appointment for my TCA + Subcision session on 21st but I am now so worried about my scars getting worse because of TCA.. my face is so damn prone to scarring now.. it is extremely sensitive and dry..  Maybe I should stop taking acctuane 1 week before the treatment and start again 1 week after the treatment.. I think my next post will be after the treatment of TCA Cross and subcision.
