Day 30

So i ran out of pills three days ago, but the doctor said i couldnt fill my persription untill the first? I dont know why. But this means i have been off the accutane for three days. I have two small pimples on my cheek, and Im not sure if it has anything to do with not being on the pills. My skin is very smooth, but there are still lots of red dots where I used to have acne. Ive also started to notice that i have these wierd bumps from dryness on the backs ofmy arms.

Day 26

I never thought that i would actually miss the grease on my face! The dryness is getting a little annoying, but I am still grateful. I have a terrible cold right now, and blowing my nose is painful. My nose is red and dry now.

Day 21

My skin is sooo much less greasy it is amazing. I have two more large pimples on the right side of my face, but they are easily covered. For some reason, maybe its the dryness, my skin is not smooth in places without the pimples. You cannot really tell, but it is sort of bumpy. It doesn't bother me much. Most of the little pimples I had before are much less red and are fading. My lips are still fine with aquaphor on them, but the insides of my nostrils have been feeling very dry. A little bit of aquaphor up there and they are fine. I think i may start to be expierencing some of the muscle pains, because my back has been hurting. It just feels like i lifted weights the day before, nothing to painful. Its just odd. My hair is still greasy unfortunately.

Day 19

Sorry its been a couple of days. My skin is sooo much less greasy, and that has made the accutane worth it in itself. My greasy skin was always a problem for me, and i was contantly usuing clean and clear oil blotting sheets. Today, I only used one all day. That is a HUGE deal for me because i have been using four or five a day since like seventh grade. My hair still gets greasy, but it has gotten better. I have about three active pimples right now. One large one on my cheek and two large ones on my forehead. The small ones i had are starting to fade. My lips are fine with aquaphor on them.

Day 14

Today was the first day in a verrryyy long time that i felt fairly confident about my skin! Its alot less red then it was a couple of days ago, and with a little makeup it looks good. I still have the bumps on my cheeks, but none of them are really all that active. They are just in the process of flattening themselves out. However, a teeny whitehead popped up right under my nose today, and it KILLED for some reason. I just put a hot wash cloth over it and popped out the pus. ew. My scalp has been very itchy, but my hair still gets very greasy, which sucks. I was hopping the accutane would dry it out a bit. However, i have only been on it for 14 days.

day 12

Today i am really starting to feel the dryness for the first time. My lips are sort of burning but are fine with the aquaphor. Its a little annoying because i am experiencing the initial breakout and the dryness at the same time. This gives me an obstacle because while applying my bare minerals foundation to cover all the new breakouts my skin is peeling. It is managable though. My skin has always been so so greasy, so this is a wierd not having to deal with nearly as much oil. I still use my oil blotting sheets ridiculously though, which may be contributing to the tightness in my face.

day 11

obviously nothing has changed since yesterday, but i also wanted to mention that i have been taking vitamin e pills as well as my accutane. It has seemed to keep me from getting too dry so far. I am usually a big drinker of water, but now instead of just drinking for my health I am actually getting thirsty.

day 10 of sotret

Hi all! So my doctor finally put me on accutane! finally! I have been on the medicine for ten days. I have noticed a little less oil on my face and in my hair. My lips haven't felt chapped until today. I have been washing my face with cetaphil twice a day a moisterizing with dml lotion. I have been using aquaphor on my lips, which works very well. As for the initial breakout, many of baby pimples have already flatened out, but i have gotten a few whiteheads on my cheeks. Ill keep you updated!
