Day 12

The left side of my cheek is very very dry and scaly. I called my Derms office to see if there is a cream that she might reccomend and get this.. my derm actually called me back and talked to me (its hard to get docotors on the phone nowadays). She said to put Hydrocortisone 3x a day for up to 2 weeks. My chin is breaking out bad and I had one on my temple that has scaled over, but looks very bad. Anyhoo, I just want this to be over with. I think when I go in for my appt next month, I am going to ask for my doc to right DAW (dispense as written) so I can get the actual Accutane and my Insurance should cover it then (I hope).

Day 11

This will be my 3rd course on Accutane. My first was when I was 20. Then 1.5 years after that. and then now. I am 26. I was really clear for quite a while after the second time, but then I got pregnant, and boy my skin reacted to that. Well here I am again, It is so miserable to be a person trapped woth acne. It is suffocating and so frustrating. It is even harder for me with a son. My first. He is beautiful and I want to be the best mother I can be, but alas, I am miserable because of the state of my skin.

So far, I don't like Claravis. I want to switch to Accutane. I never experienced an initial breakout on Accutane, but I am on this Claravis stuff. UGHHH!!

Will post more later

Chow.
