  1. Hello All! Everything is going good so far. The tummy pain seems to be going away. My face or lips haven't been that dry. My skin seems to be getting used to the med. I haven't really been breaking out that much. Just a few pimples here and there and the old ones drying up. I still have all the little ones that are like hard balls under the skin. I have only had maybe 3 cystic since starting the tane. I apply the aquaphor every night to my lips and under eyes after washing with cetaphil. My
  2. AWWW Thanks for the support. Can't wait to hear about your progress. Happy Thanksgiving !
  3. Good luck to you too! I am on day 8 so we are very close. I just started to get a little dryness and my face looks red like after a day at the beach. Awww aren't kids so cute and compassionate. Mine is 2 and she says to me one day She says ever so cute and every time she says it 3 times. LOL Uh I was amazed! Love to hear your progress and good luck!
  4. Hi, Yeah the I remember when I first started using the benzyol. I was thinking OMG what is happening to my clothes ? I don't even use bleach and my clothes were getting dyed left and right. After about half of my clothes were ruined I finally figured out who the culprit was! BP LOL If you think that was bad one time I was living in the city and had no washing machine at the time. I was doing my laundry at the laundry mat and I brought my clean clothes home in a clean black trash bag and set it
  5. Day 8 Everything is going good so far. I have not mentioned this yet but I have been getting a burning feeling in my tummy. It only happens for a few min but it literally feels like my intestines are burning( weird huh? ) I have been trying to take plenty of water with my pill to see if that helps. I have never had these pains before but I am sure it will go in time. My skin is finally turning that famous red that I have heard so much about. It is also getting a little dry ( not to bad
  6. Day 6 Accutane log Doing good so far. A little dryness on the lips and a few new pimples. So far nothing major. I have been feeling tired lately due to a chest cold but I am hoping it goes away soon. No aches so far as some have had. I hope my treatment continues without any big problems. I am very confident about this med so I haven't really even been looking at my skin. My skins texture seems to be improving with the cetaphil wash. I think some of my acne may be from the harsh washes I ha
  7. No dryness yet. My skin has been really soft lately due to the cetaphil wash. Skin is very oily and hair too. I am so excited to see results. It has been so long since my skin has been clear. I have the type of acne that is like hard puss that forms bumps under the skin. If I try to squeeze the hard thing out I will get a cyst there. My forehead is filled with small pimples that contain hard balls too. I hate this OMG. I will be posting some pics as soon as I figure out how.
  8. Thanks for the encouragement ! I hope time goes by fast !
  9. Hi Jackie , Thanks for the advice. How long into treatment until you started getting dry ? Would you say the dryness with accutane is worse than taz ?
  10. Day 3 Everything seems to be going good so far. Had a slight headache today but maybe because I skipped breakfast. Duh! LOL Anyway my skin was super oily this morning and my pores look larger. No dryness or peeling yet. I wonder if I will get an IB? I am hoping to have my face looking a little better by Christmas. It may take affect on me a little fast since I was on tazorac the month before starting and my skin purged. I did not realize how bad my face really is until I took some pics yester
  11. Thanks for the support! Good luck with your accutane. I wish you the best ! I would love to hear how it goes. I am just on finishing my third day. Have you heard when the dryness starts? I am worried about it! LOL
  12. Day 2 I am feeling so good today. Already took my 20 mg pill for the morning and will take another 20 mg tonight at bedtime. Had a pretty pretty pretty good ( larry david) lol. sleep last night with no complaints. I have been feeling a little quezy since the first pill but will probably subside after I get used to it. I have been drinking a lot of water with my pill and after. I have no dryness yet but I am sure it will come fast. I am so happy today knowing I am on my way to clear skin.
  13. Day 1 First accutane con: Getting the script is a pain! So far so good! I have never wrote a blog before so this is a first for me. So let me start out by writing a little about my acne journey. I started to develop acne around age 15 and it slowly went from small pimples to cystic over the years ( I am 24 now ). I have tried everything from proactive to tazorac ( And everything in between). So now after considering accutane for years I am taking the plunge. I have been very scar
