About this blog

I'm a 17 year old girl with moderate/severe acne and ready to take the next step to clear skin ... Accutane!

Entries in this blog


Days 1-3

Day 1: Just popped my first pill! After a month of waiting and dealing with all the iPledge drama and bloodwork I am so pumped! I obviously have no side effects yet but have a tube of chapstick in my pocket ready to go.

Day 2: Is it possible to already feel some side effects? I've had a slight headache all day and my mouth feels dry ... l'm guzzling water like none other. But a giant cyst that I felt coming up didn't appear! Crisis averted. Probably because I've been taking both Accutane and Doxycycline the past 2 days as recommended by my derm. He hopes to help me avoid a giant breakout ... fingers crossed.

Day 3: Headache still persisitent, mouth still a bit dry and woke up this morning with my lips feeling slightly dry. ... Here we go.



Hey, lovely people!

My name is Alex and I decided that to keep up my spirits/track my progress/meet other people with acne I should start a blog! So ... here I go! For the past four years I have been following Accutane blogs on this site and trying to deal with my persistent moderate/severe acne by going on countless topicals/prespcription meds/antibiotics etc. Needless to say, they haven't worked and so when my skin began scarring I switched dermatologists. My new derm has prescribed me 40mg of Accutane per day and I could not be happier. I know it will be a rough journey but I am ready to do whatever it takes to regain my self esteem and get rid of all the physical and psychological pain that comes with suffering from acne.

Wishing you all the best. xx

My stats:

Age: 17, girl

Height: 5'5"

Weight: 120

Acne type: Persistent moderate/severe. Occasional cysts. (I'll add pictures soon.)

Regimine: Cetaphil cleanser morning and night, Olay moisturizer after washing face, 40 mg Accutane @ night, Aquaphor for lips at all times.
