Apologies for the lack of post, I spose I've been a bit lazy and just been enjoying my summer holidays
but anyway, roaccutane...
so, i have some more side effects since i last blogged including; dry lips, dry and delicate skin, back pain, decreased night vision, aching joints on some days- particularly as it comes to the end of a day, reaaally dry hair, feeling a little more tired than usual.
But none of these have been that bad at all, I carry my vaseline EVERYWHERE with me though.
I actually feel lost without it now, haha. But that hasn't caused me any pain, they just peel alot and crack but that still doesn't hurt
erm, the dry hair thing is the only thing out of the side effects which actually bothers me. However, it does mean that my hair never gets greasy, which is a big change to before cos I had to wash it every 2-3 days :L but i've seen my hairdresser since and she is absolutely positive that after treatment, everything will return to normal (: waheey, thank god.
umm, so my actual skin...
for about 90% of the time i've been on roaccutane, i have seen improvements almost daily and about 4 days ago i had no spots and just the red marking remained which accutane will also aapparently get rid of. However... seeing as it's my time of the month, i got 3 rather large whiteheads grow on my left cheek, these weren't a big deal... until i picked them :/
which okay, i know i shouldn't have done, but seriously they were like about to explode and i thought it would be helping my face?! turns out it didn't
So, where my skin is so delicate, after squeezing them away, i then woke up in the morning to 3 lovely patches of bright red broken skin. That's the frustrating thing!... they weren't even spots, just broken skin Â¬Â¬
Anyway, i left them alone and they have slowly calmed down 3 days later, but one is still quite bright red! I have the dermatologist tomorrow, it's a shame because she won't see it at it's best, and this is the only time it hasn't been as good! However, i am still happy with the improvment, as i know that when these three things have gone, my face will return to how it was before and improvement can continue
I'm also annoyed at myself because I was doing so well with not picking my face for so long!
I vow from this day forward to never pick my face again. Tbh i know my skin will be so much better if i don't!
Hope you're all getting on with you're treatment okay and are making slow improvements. After a few days, mine should be better and i hope from there on in it's a steady improvement to CLEAR SKIN ahh, i actually CAN'T wait
anyway, laters guys
