  1. Okay so I don't want to be one of those people who spends their life on a forum trying to fix something then leaves half way through their own progress never to be seen again. My previous entries talked about how my acne came back after accutane. This was obviously devastating after going through all the acne, then all the treatments, then all the accutane side effects just to have it come back! The biggest solution I had was using sunbeds, all be it dangerous they gave me a great tan and a clea
  2. Acne is pretty bad again on my face, back on lymecycline for 7 weeks but still to return to the way my skin was post accutane. Help me please
  3. So I finished my 12 week accutane course in around March and had completely clear skin for 1 month post treatment. About 4 or 5 weeks in bumps on my forehead appeared and slowly but surely it has crept back up on me. Up until a month ago it only returned on my face but now it's starting on my back and chest again which was my original reason for being on accutane. At this point I have about 20-30 20mg pills left of accutane. My friends dad is a GP and recommended taking these pills Monday Wedne
  4. Just a nightmare, if this was as bad as it was going to get I'm sure I could live with it. I just know its the start of a new ordeal.. However, I found 18 accutane pills. My friends Dad is a GP and he advised me to take an accutane pill Monday Wednesday and Friday. I could make this last for 6 weeks. Ugh, what effort. So annoying watching TV and looking at people with clear skin knowing it used to be me and then looking in the mirror and seeing tonnes of bumps.

    Its back

    To contradict everything in my previous post. My acne has returned. Slowly, but surely its crept back however not on my chest or back only on my face.. Dont know what to do now. Getting quite heavy on my previous problem area that was my shaving area and I result to my old ways of burning my face with benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid which leaves me looking red as a beetroot.. Where do I even go from here? Sad days when you thought you were clear..
  7. It really is true when people say you only hear about the accutane scare stories because the clear people have no interest in acne forums. Since I've been clear I completely forgot about this blog. Bascially a quick update. Skin on face is completely clear, not had a spot in weeks, back is clear and getting with about one spot. Side effects: None, not even dry lips anymore for some reason. However, I did have a stomach scare.. took accutane on empty stomach resulting in stomach cramps for a
  8. 8 weeks in! really clearing up, face isnt amazingly clear but everythings slowly fading out, keep getting comments on how good my skin looks. I think the hairloss was in my head... My skin isnt even dry anymore so good. However my face looks a bit red but I think its still cause I'm using acne products and left my cetaphil down at the borders! But all that is easy to tame. So far so good. Getting my bloodwork done on tuesday, been abit over drinking scared of my liver tests... Wish me
  9. Skin is no better/ no worse than a few weeks ago No new side effects except My hair hairline on the left side of my head looks further back than usual and it hurts? Ah my worst accutane fear boooo

    Mid week 6

    Skin is shockingly clear Except the small spots that were the dark red ones that i managed to reduce alot except the one that remained I just popped which was honestly like a cyst. Oh well, my skin isnt even really that dry anymore. Loving life
  12. Skin is looking alot better. Still bad, but better Salicylic Acid and Benzoyl Peroxide came together to treat the infected areas. Those horrible dark dark red spots have lightened enough to be coverable I would say and should be fully gone in a week, thank god for that. Had a nosebleed when I woke up today. Fed up with fighting with my skin.

    End of week 5

    After my skin was looking SO good had a massive breakout. Huge dark red marks on one side of my face like ive never seen before and tonnes of forehead acne. So annoying as I was convinced this was the beginning of the clearing. My birthday is in a few days as well fs!

    Mid week 4

    Skin is still clearing, didnt notice how clear my back and chest were! Still getting spots now and then but not mass breakouts, thank god I think I am finally past the initial break out stage. My friends Dad the doctor again was talking to me about it and said my skin looked good and that this is when it should started getting clearer. However, lip started bleading today due to sheer dryness. Also, had another outburst of insanity and one of my friends today. Definitley the accutane as this ti
