So today I wake up and realize that I now have eczema... what the hell...I feel like a giant living, breathing, walking side-effect. On a positive note I will give props to Aquaphor for healing my lips. Believe me it works, I tried chapstick, burt's bees, carmex, aquafina lip oil, vaseline, starbust( oh year so desperate that I tried my daughters lip gloss) 36 hours and my lips are healing... they are not bleeding and it stays on and moisturizes for about 3 hours at a time. That's all I got today... O_O

Okay... so not much has changed since yesterday, actually nothing has changed!!! My makeup is not covering up my problems. It is hard to cover raw skin!!! UGGGHH.. Anyway, I do have a plan for today um let's call it an AH HA moment for me O_O I will not pick the flaking, dry, disgusting skin off my face today. Let me emphasize TODAY... I can only take this whole treatment one day at a time... If i look at the big picture and think about 4 more months of this sh*# I might just give up!!! I don't want to give up... I have dreamed for years of beautiful skin that I didn't have to cover with makeup. Skin that one day when I wake up in the morning I don't immediately goto the bathroom and try to cover my face... even from myself!!! I am hoping Accutane is my holy grail of acne treatments...

Day 33

First post... Okay... so I started accutane 33 days ago right before my 34th birthday!! People who are 34 should not have acne. Unfortunately, i have always had it. I am currently taking 40mg/day of Claravis and my skin looks worse than ever. My lips are peeling off, my skin is peeling off, my eyes are dry, i am tired all the time, my hip bones are hurting and my face looks worse than it ever has before!!! Is this the initial outbreak??? God I hope so and I hope it goes away soon. I don't know what to do...nothing seems to help...i have tried moisturizer of every kind and aloe to soothe my skin its not working. I am a picker...so that is not helping either. I sit in the mirror and peel the flaking skin off with tweezers...prob a bad idea...my derm would probably kill me!!! LOL but seriously... Is there anyone out there who can give me some advice? O_O
