errr not so goooddd my oil has come back =[ !!!

and im starting to break out a bit near the nose.

i went to my derm 2 days ago and she said shes gona put me back on accutane

40 mg once a week or i can take it twice a week depending how oily iam.

its basically a maintenance. If it still doesnt seem to work out she said i might start a whole session agian..

Damn i wasnt even clear post accutane for at lest a month... lasted only 3 weeks or so... =[ i got the worst luck. I think it was due to my low dose. 60mg.

But yeah i got my accutane today 40mg. So today august 30 2010 will begin my "maintenance"

hope it helps my acne =[ wish me luck

DIE OILY SKIN !!!

post accutane day 18

Not so good guys =[. Woke up today with a bunch of oil on my face. The pimple on my left cheek is deflating, but i got a little small one near my nose. not really a pimple but its small and red. My face is pretty red iono.. is accutane not working anymore? hope it gets better soon. Maybe its cause ive ate pasta for a couples of days now. Ill see what happens if i stop eatting it. Be back with more updates

Post accutane day 13

my face has bee acting good. but today it was slightly redder. I also got my first pimple on my buttom left cheek. It isnt really noticable but wen i washed my face i felt it ><. I guess it came from the soda and cookies ive been eatting.

still so far so good :)

so yesterday august 7 2010. i was playing sports after a while my shin bone started to feel weak. i could barely hold my self up or move fast. Now today after a sleep it felt better but still i feel a pain on my shin. I dont think i hurt my self playing handball. Since its on both of my shin. There is no swelling, But when i push down on my right shin it would hurt. iono i hope this aint related to accutane.

But my still havent gotten any new pimples :). Still got some redness. The couple of pimples i had before turned to scabs and feel off yesterday night when i was washing my face hehe

:(. When i run my hand on my face there a little bit of bumps near the buttom of my cheeks. Its probably some whiteheads =/. I feel like extracting them but eh dont wanna make my face red ill jus leave them for now

mr.sadface

So right now im gonna take my last pill, thats 60mg a day (30x2).

About 3 days ago i looked at my face in the mirror looking for bumbs/whiteheads/lackheads/pimples..

and i was pleased to see i didnt really have anything ! All i saw was about 4 little blackheads around my temple and right cheek. i could even count them lols. it was about 4 at most. so i took one of those pimple extractor to take it out, and i did so. the next morning i wake up having 3 pimples on the spots i extracted T.T". I guess i shud of cleansed it better =/.

currently i still have 3 the pimples. My redness actually went down and its mostly just pink. The oiliness has gone down aswell. when i run my hand on my face its pretty smooth. But when i touch my nose i can feel the pores and a little bit clogged with dryness. My arm just broke out a bit with eczema about 2 days ago. It seems i get patches of dry red area around my arms every 2 weeks or so. But im not worried about it. The clinque redness solution kit, ive stopped using it. Used it for about 3 weeks but my skin was dry and flaking so putting the sunscreen was kindof messy didnt really mix well with dry skin lol.

So from a month from now i shud head back to the derm to let him/her see my improvements.I hope after being off accutane my redness would completely go down and pores shrink. And of course no acne/blackhead/whiteheads/oil/dryness and them bad skin conditions ><.

I'll be back for further updates in a week or so :) .. thanks for everyone that read my blog. I know the grammer is horrible, im always just rushing and not thinkin about what to type but just doing it, and never ever proof reading it.

PEACE N LOVE Everyone =D<3

I have 5 days left of 60 mg a day and i start my last month ! I went to the derm today and im going to be taking 60mg agian for the last month. So im be goin back to the derm 2 months from now to see if i improve while im off accutane aswell. I dont really have any pimples but still aint quite happy yet. my pores are pretty noticable, and still have sum bumps on my face.

The clinque redness solution kit(3 sets) helps the redness a bit :pray:. But it seems to clog my pores a little. Im not sure if it's the clinque or the sunburn i got about a week ago. but it does help so im keep using it. one bad thing about it is that when i sweat it kinds of runs off not alot but a little.

SO one more month AND IM DONEEEE 6 months!!! WOOOOSH went by pretty fast. Im scared after im off accutane. dont want everything to come back. And my pores gets clogged even worse ><

pill 129 down

went to dorney park yesterday so i got pretty dark and burnt a bit >.<.

my face is really red. I have one pimple on my right temple. The white heads seems to be goin away. its not really noticeable. My oil seem to decrease a bit. I Just got clinque Redness Solution, and today was the first time using it. My face seems less red and blotchy. But it might be cause of the 3rd step which is a spf 15 with a tint that makes the face whiter. So ill see how the 3 step redness solution helps with my redness. Hope it doesnt clog my pores ><.

mr.sadface

So today is month 5 and i just took a 30 mg pill with soy milk and water, at night i shall take another 30 mg pill. im hoping to see dramatic result with my higher dose this time around. Been on 40 MG a day for 4 month straight -.-"

currently i have one small pimple on my left cheek, blackhead/whiteheads a bit of oil and redness, no dry area and scars on my jawline mostly

mr.sadface

still taking 60 mg a day. my skin aint really dry but its reallly oily rite now ... ive gotten small white heads and black heads around my chin/ cheek area. they never really dry up and wash off. so yes i popped them again =/. I even feel the corner of my nose feeling itchy. thats a sign a white head is forming or wat not -.-" this is annoying. someone prey for me that my acne/ oil control gets better >.<.

PS i havent used lotion on my face for atleast 2 months or so

pill 129 down

my face is look a little better cant really tell the difference from 60mg and 40 mg. I only had one pimple near my ear and my face started to get a bit red agian. I guess when im off accutane my face would get less red, knock on wood. Well tomorrow im gonna get my blood work done. wish me luck

mr.sadface

Pill 120 down

My derm called me Saturday saying my blood work passed and i came in on monday to get the prescription. I AM FINALLY ON A HIGHER DOSE!! WOOSHHH. I got one new box called Sotret called sotret 1 tablet twice a day. So my dose now will be 60 MG :|. While i was off accutane for about a week my skin acted pretty good, my skin was less red and dry :). Now it might turn red agian ehh.

mr.sadface

so ive taken 119 pill so far and when i went to my derm yesrerday she said they cant prescribe me another month due to my blood work.. so today i did the blood work and now i have to wait for my dermto call.. it should take about a week =/. month 5 i might have a higher dosage instead of 40 MG agian. I came in the derm wanting to show them my minor breakout which i shouldnt be having im guessing so hopefully ill be having at least 60 MG a day next week.

My face is still red some pimples near my jaw line, have a couple of blackheads/white heads still. I stopped putting on lotion for about 3 days now my face isnt really dry and the oil has gone down too.

mr.sadface

pill 100 down

mr.sadface

DAY 90

my last pill of month 3 ! month 4 starts tomorrow and its a new accutane box. It aint claravis but Amnesteem 40 mg a day. My derm wont bump me up =/. I asked him about my redness and large pores. He said " accutane doesnt shrink your pores" ... As soon as he said that i was thinking in my head, does he know what hes talking about cause i did some research on it and such so iono. Anyways i think it was 2 days ago i had sum new pimples coming out agian and i formed a rash on my right arm and starting to feel it on my back neck. I think ive been breaking out more often because it's been windy lately and all the pollen and sand is hitting my face maybe.

pill 87 down

so yesterday i notice i had a little bumb around my chin area that was starting to form. Today i still have the little whiteheads or w/e it is near the chin and 1 pimple on my forehead,one on my temple and one my left jaw. My lips are gettin drier agian and i would have to apply charmex more often. my cheeks near my nose also starts to feel bumby with dryness. At night i would try to ex foliate it with warm water and a towel. I also been using jabba oil which i order from this site on my face and at time on the body. The eczema on the side of my stomach is gone now. I ex foliated in the shower with a towel then added lotion. Month 4 is around the corner. I will go see the derm on the 22. Am try to get a raise on my dose. Still using 40 mg per day from month 1-3.

even with out acne my face is still red and have large pores!! this makes my face look ehh. I still have some black and whiteheads in my skin if you look at it closely.

pill 82 down

No active pimples on my face that i really notice ^^ it also feels pretty smooth lala.

my face is a little red but its going down abit, and my oil went down as well. When i touch my face there a bit, but i can handle it. my sides on my stomach is very bumpy and rough also my left wrist and both of my elbows. Its like little bumps and some are red. I think its called Eczema. I use to have this when i was younger around my joints. I read some post that it will go away after im off accutane.

So yeah im not to worried about it. Month 4 is around the corner... this is scary almost done and i wanna see wayyyyy better improvement ><

66th pill

so im on my 3rd month of accutane with a 11 day off of it durin the 2nd month. still on 40 mg a day.

and my face is oily still ... the first month it was gone then came back then gone and back agian..

it's mostly around my nose and its shiny. i think my derm is gona leave me on 40mg too. Maybe its cuz i just started takin accutane again after the 11 days off. I dont no, but man i hope this works for me.. if this doesnt i dont know what to do anymore =/

i had a brake out around my right jawline and now its scarred up and my face is pretty red now

mr.sadface

so today i will take 61 pills. I still have an annoying pimple on my right jawline and my skin is starting to feel sensitive agian. I've been using aveeno lotion with SPF 15.

I also started P90X yesterday and im somewhat sore. It was a chest,back and ab work out. About an hour 15 mins long. The p90x workout is 90 days long so 3 month for accutane and p90x. hopefully in the summer ill be ripped and acne free :shhh:!!

mr.sadface

I've been off accutane for 10 days now. so i really dont know how i should name my titles now lols..

is it day 58? or 68? But today i popped my 58th pill of claravis :shhh:

Today when i went to the derm they said my blood work didnt come in yet "probably pending"

but they still gave me my 3rd month of tane so i was happy. It's still 40 mg a day.

I also asked if i can take whey protein while on accutane. She said sure it wont harm me.

so yup i'll be on accutane and working out. I order P90x about a week ago and waiting for it to be delivered.

Hopfully when im done with accutane and acne free I can be buffed up aswell :shhh:

wooot what a dayyy hehe

mr.sadface

so i havent had accutane for 6 days now. I also went to take a blood test this morning.

im hoping i can see the derm this sunday and get back on accutane but im not sure if the result would come in 4 days. Wish me luck guys =/

mr.sadface

DAY 57

Today my doctor called about my blood work. He said something about my liver being raised above normal i think. and i should not take accutane for 5 days then take another blood test and reschedule my dermatologist appointment. My derm appointment was suppose to be this saturday coming up. Man i always have bad luck.. After i get my blood work im going to ask when i can take accutane agian. I have 3 more tablet to complete the 2nd month. Hope it all goes well wish me luck ><

mr.sadface

DAY 50

Finished the 2nd package! went by pretty fast. One more package to finish, then ill start month 3 :D

I got about 3 pimples on my jaw line that's pretty annoying.

my shoulder some what hurts when i lift them up but its starting to go away. My oiliness went down also but its never completely gone :D

I still have a lot of white heads connecting to my chin and cheeks. I just want them to go away already! If they do then i will notice a big improvement on accutane.

So far it mostly took away my black heads on my cheek and nose ^^ and my skin texture got a bit softer but still bumpy.

mr.sadface

DAY 46

broke out around the jawline. My sister came to visit today and she said my face is actually clearing... omg! doesnt seem like it to me, but she haven't seen me for a while so i'll take her word for it =D!

I also have a blood test on tuesday hope it comes out good. did have a few drinks about 2 weeks ago? don't think it would affect it.
