DAY 23

FACE IS LOOKING BETTER EACH DAY. THANK GOD FOR ACCUTANE.......CAN'T WAIT TO SEE END RESULTS! JUST GETTING OVER FLU. WENT TO DOC TODAY SINCE I HAD LOST SO MANY FLUIDS WHILE I WAS SICK THOUGHT I BETTER SEEK SOME PRO ADVICE.

FYI: IF YOU GET THE FLU WHILE ON ACCUTANE WATCH FOR DEHYDRATION. I ENDED UP NEEDING EXTRA FLUIDS.

IM NOTICING MY SCALP IS GETTING DRY AND MY HAIR USED TO BE SO OILY THAT I HAD TO WASH IT EVERYDAY. NOW IM WASHING MY HAIR EVERY OTHER DAY. LIPS STILL DRY BUT NOT TO BAD. EARS ARE PEELING ON THE INSIDE. LOOKS A LITTLE FUNKY BUT IM NOT COMPLAINING. I WILL TAKE DRY, FLAKY SKIN ANY DAY OVER PIMPLES. FOR ONCE I FEEL LIKE A MEDICINE IS REALLY WORKING ON MY SKIN. I HAVE BEEN ON EVERY PRODUCT PERSCRIBED, OVER THE COUNTER, AND TV (PROACTIVE) I EVEN WAS SEEKING THE HELP OF A PLASTIC SURGEON WHO CHARGED TONS OF MONEY PROMISING HE COULD CLEAR MY FACE WITH HIS VERY EXPENSIVE PRODUCTS AND FACE SCAPING TREATMENTS. ALL THAT FOR NOTHING. NOTHING EVER WORKED ON MY FACE. I WAS REALLY ABOUT TO GIVE UP. NOTHING HAS EVERY DONE WHAT ACCUTANE IS DOING. MY FEARS OF THIS DRUG ARE STARTING TO SUBSIDE BECAUSE OF HOW GREAT I AM STARTING TO FEEL.

Day22 I started sotret 20mg on april 16, 2008. The only side effects I have had is dry lips. I am putting on aquaphor several times a day, and I coat my lips at night.

when I woke up this morning all my pimples were very dry and had little bits of skin peeling from each pimple. i also saw a big change in their color. I always had large red/purple pimples that were very sore. This morning everyone of my pimples (20 to 30) were smaller, dryer, and light pink. Not that ugly bright purple.

My derm. told me to expect to maybe see results around second month. I am so happy that I am just now approaching my first full month and I am seeing improvment. I will get some pics posted soon!
