  1. I just finished my course 1-2 weeks ago, was on it for 6 months. But now my neck has 1000 pimples all down it, he said once i finish i shouldnt get one pimple... i guess ill wait 1 month or so and see how it all goes.
  2. Im about 3 or most months into taking roaccutane, overall i cant complain dry lips, blood noises. nothing i cant handle. But i have noticed above my eyebrows, on either side my forehead looks swollen no its probably not a big deal and it wont hurt me. but i was wanting to know if anyone else has experience this too? when i frown it feels like i have botox... not that i have- or even no what it feels like but you get my drift.... FEEDBACK PLEASE

  6. so about this stage my face looks better but worse. Everyone says its getting better but today i got about seriously 50+ new pimples. My cheeks were red as today at school and still are now... this is going to be one bumpy ride and a very slow progressing journey.... but all for the better i hope i cant help but to pick about my face and say ew , am i being to vein? or is this normal. my friends and the people around me dont understand but this is such a big deal to me my hands/lip

They feel tight. Thats al
