Hello all, I'm Katy from Scotland and I have had acne since I was 12/13. It started off just a few pimples every so often but it grew into a depressing sight every morning at the mirror. I have been on and off antibiotics since I was 15, trying all my GP could throw at me. When I was nearly 18, I decided enough was enough and I wanted a result this time. My GP then referred me to a dermatologist, which took 3 months just for an appointment. After a fasting blood test, he told me I was suitable for Roaccutane, I was prescribed it on the 23rd of May. I have now been on it for a month, entering my second month now. Apart from the obvious dry lips, I have noticed mood swings and low points where I just want to cry. I went on holiday and wearing a high factor, I managed to burn after an hour, usually I don't burn at all, and I have very dry arms, shoulders, nose and cheeks. My skin has grown alot smoother although dry and the spots seem to be less fiery than before. I know the end result will be good so the side effects are just something to be tolerated. Anyway, thats it for now, I'll post pictures soon.
