day 57

some new cysts on my chin/lower cheek, on both sides. i have 3 cysts total on my left cheek, and many on my right cheek. ive been drinking alot lately, i dont know if thats making accutane ineffective, but my skin is getting a little more oilier than it was a few weeks ago. maybe i should cut back on the alcohol.

day 56?

its day 56, went to my derm today, gonna keep goin 60mg a day. I havent seen any major improvements since my last entry. Im hoping that ill be able to see some major improvements the third month, since right now, its pretty disappointing, i expected so much more. the red marks that are left behind arent helping either.

day 45

so ive been drinking a little too much lately. Im gonna cut back for a while. started to use a drop of jojoba oil in my moisturizer today. well see how well that works, i hear it reduces redness and gets rid of flaky peely skin. skin is the same as a few days ago, maybe a little worse, but i blame alcohol for that.

side note: i think i believe the rumor that masturbation can aggravate acne. im gonna hold back for a while. its not easy, since i no longer have a lady and im at home alot of the time and my hormones are going crazy right now, but im gonna do it. Day one starts Tomorrow! as of now, its Day 0.

day 44

ive been drinking and hangin with friends lately, and shit, time really does fly by when u live your life as if acne doesnt bother u that much. when i stayed at home bc the zits made me feel shitty, the days went by soo slow. some updates: my acne is getting better, i can tell the cysts are reduced in size compared to a while ago, and they arent hurting as much anymore. some of the huge dime sized ones are actually starting to dry out! theyve been there for months, so i hope they finally ran outa juice. right cheek is getting so much better, just dry areas and some cysts, but nothing compared to how it was a week or 2 ago. left cheek got a little worse last week, but its already getting better. just really red/purple and fucked up looking. wuutevs. got one small cyst on my right forehead. nothing big. but one thing thats been bothering me, i had this cyst on my eyebrow, its pretty much gone now, but it left a mole-like mark, scar? its brown. it looks like a frickn mole, and i didnt have that before. what do i do, i thought it was a scab, but today i discovered that its in my skiin, not raised.:cool: wtf. overall, i think the accutane is finally starting to kick in. they dryness isnt all that bad either, just usin some aquapphor, and some cerave cream on my face, and its not that dry. using babywash as a cleanser too. well shit, thats about it.

day36

week 5, did some drinking yesterday and the day before. but just a few drinks and shots, nothin hectic. cysts on my left cheek are going away, its still a little sore when i touch it, but its not too bad. theyre still redish purple tho. the ones on my right cheek are still pretty bad, they are all still pretty sore, and look pretty inflamed. but i can tell its getting a little better. the thing is, theres one huge on my right cheek, it doesnt even look like a cyst anymore, just a dime sized sore dry area. i think the cyst spread around the original area, and grew into a big one. anything i should do? or could do? other than wait it out. i have a feeling this ones gonna be there for months. it already has been throbbin on my cheek for a little over a month. other than the ones on my cheek, i have nothing. forehead is completely clear/smooth, none between my eyebrows,eyes, none on my chin, the ones on my jawline disappeared, none on my body,neck,etc. just my fucking cheeks. which i hear, are the most persistent, and hard to get rid of, since there is no bone to help aid in making the cyst come to a head and heal.

My hair has also been really dry lately, and the front is getting really soft and thin. i used to have really thick hair, but now, it just drops. it usually stood up on its own, and i could shape it w/o using anything. but now, it seems like my hair is dying. i dont really see any hairloss though, just getting softer. is this the initial symptom of hairloss due to accutane??! id much rather have a full head of hair and have acne than be clear and look 50, nam sayn

day 34

drank a couple brewskies tnight, hope it doesnt fuck everything up. im still so dry, my cheeks keep peeling, and i keep peeling the skin off, which kinda hurts/makes it kinda raw.i know its not a good idea, but shit, when u have a big chunk of skin hanging from your face, its hard to just let it hang. still the same old as yesterday acnewise, no improvement, but not worse. if only the pain went away, i would feel so much better. i hate the sore/burning feeling. i try not to let acne ruin my social life, but i cant help but feel unattractive/ self conscious/shy/nervous/uninterested in people bc i dont want them starin at my face.w/o acne, im an alright lookin guy. it feels like people will assume that youre still a fucking kid just bc u got some zits on yourface, im 22 for fucks sake. i created this blog to keep track of my progress on this med, and to let out some steam, so thats what im gonna do. fucking acne, i swear to god if you were a guy, id rip your balls off, put em in a blender along with a teaspoon of lime juice, a dash of salt, a handful of chimpanzee feces, a couple hamahama or pacific coast oysters, a tablespoon of sryracha hot sauce, and blend it all up into a smoothie, and spoon feed u EVERY last drop. then id wash my hands with some rubbing alcohol, or some 151, and id grab your intestines through your anus, and tie a DOUBLE knot, and id keep feeding you, and feeding you, and feeding you

day 33

On day 33, nearing the end of week 4, my cysts are slowly improving. i think. the bumps are starting to really show, which i am guessing, is a good thing, bc my face is pushing the jizzle out of my skin. the ones on my eyebrow/forehead i got about a week ago are pretty much gone, can barely feel the bump, doesnt hurt at all. and the 3 cysts on my left cheek is starting to dry up. I still have lots of cysts on my right cheek, they are still very painful to the touch, but i think a couple are starting to dry out. at least the skin around it is drying/peeling. i havent gotten any new cysts for a couple of days, but i think its bc ive been taking bactrim septra ds that i had saved up from a few months ago. i have enough to last me 3 more weeks, i pray to god that i dont fucking erupt after stopping bactrim. im just taking it to ease the initial breakout of accutane. thats pretty much it, my skin is fucking dry, but ive been using cerave cream twice a day, and i have started using baby soap instead of using purpose cleanser. lips arent too bad, just as long as i keep em all goopey with aquaphor. One more thing..The REDNESS is insane, even if the cysts go away, the redness/purplishness doesnt...its a flat red mark, is there anything that would help relieve my redness,scarring from the accutane initial breakout. theyre shiny too, sort of like a keloid scar, it has a shininess to it and makes it shimmer in the light, making it alot more noticeable. fuck acne. motherfuckers hurt. Oh, and is it likely to get more than 1 initial breakout? i dont think i can handle another one, i havent hung out with friends in a long time, and i miss goin to bars and such..and its fucking summer break. how fucked up is that shit. FUCKSKDLSJDNJNW DSM NMOTHERFUCKdsad. fuck.

30 days done...

jesus, its only been 30 days. my skin has just been getting worse and worse after taking accutane. Its depressing. the huge cysts on my cheeks keep getting bigger, and ontop of that, i continually get more and more of these cysts on my cheeks. its like theyre stacking ontp of eachother. they arent drying up either, just the skin around it, not the cyst itself. should i be putting lotion on? dont i want my cysts/pimples to dry up? i dont even know what to do anymore, i guess just keep takin them pills and hope for some kind of improvement. good night.

Day 28

WEnt to Docs today, im being bumped up to 60mg a day in 2 days. My acne is the worst its ever been in my 5 years of having acne. I used to take antibiotics, minocycline, doxycycline, and bactrim. I was taking bactrim til the day i started using accutane, when i started accutane, i stopped bactrim. Maybe Im experiencing such a fucked up breakout bc i stopped bactrim and my body was so used to having bactrim fight off the acne bacteria. I really hope the cysts on my cheeks go away soon, i hav at least 12cysts, big ones, just on my right cheek, and a couple of my left. the redness is horrible, and i cant even sleep with the side of my face resting on the pillow bc it hurts so much. well im just fucking depressed right now. how many more months of this?? 5, i dont know if i can wait 5 months. and i think my hair is thinning. which doesnt help. fuck it.

so im new here. i started accutane about a month ago, sotret, 40mg/day. I experienced what people here are calling an Initial Breakout. i have cystic acne, moderate/severe, and its mostly on my cheeks. But yesterday, i woke up with cystic acne on places where ive never gotten acne, like my forehead and eyebrows and my chin? is this the accutanes doing?? afer getting out of the shower, i couldnt stand the all these pusheads on my cheeks, so i decided to pop/squeeze them all. i know its not a good idea to pick, but i couldnt resist..When will these breakouts go away? The deep cystic acne seems to dry up, but the painful bump is still there. some of the cystic acne have been there for weeks, close to a month. and When will i start to see results? :cool: i feel so shitty.
