  1. Thanks, I've had 3 derma rollers At a London hospital but hasn't seemed to do much.. :/ my left side is fine but right is horrible, have an appointment on the 16th so hopefully will be get a different treatment.
  2. Just thought I'd post as I am basically one year post accutane and thought of the people who may be on it. I have not had one spot in ages and if get one it is gone in a day. I had serious scars left so started treatment for that a few months ago. I am on my second dermaroller treatment at Hammersmith hospital in London and it is a very painful treatment but have seen slight improvement although people generally have at least 3 treatments. Good luck everyone
  3. Just remembered i had this blog and used to go on this site. I do get the odd spot now and again but main concern is scars left by accutane and am now awaiting treatment for that. If you are going to take this medication bare in mind you can get red marks and scars but it is still worth it. Overall I am glad i took this medication.
  4. So it's around day 117 on roaccutane and it feels like i have been on it forever! I have seen improvement on some days but it is on and off, some good days but mostly bad days. Still have breakouts weekly, skin is extremely dry but i am not moisturising as it causes more spots. Once my face clears more i will moisturise my whole face, at the moment i just moisturise parts which are really dry. I was due a dermatologist appointment yesterday and i have been put down from 55mg a day back to 4
  5. It's day 64 on Roaccutane! I am still experiencing the usual breakouts each day and haven't seen much improvement, if any. My derm said after 3 months i should see a dramatic improvement so i am not really worried yet. I am over half way through and the first two months are out the way which is really good.. I have noticed that i have not had any spots on my back at all the last week and it is nice and smooth. I have had about one spot each week come up on my neck/back of head which is
  6. Okay so i have started using a moisturizer daily in the morning and the dry skin around cysts has disappeared. However i think i have got more whiteheads from using the moisturizer but im not too sure. My face is just really bad but im letting the weeks go on and not yet looking for a real improvement. Just gonna wait it out another month and by then start to see some improvements. I have huge red marks left from cysts on my face, mainly the right side of my face and the skin is flat but ju
  7. Started college this last week! Feel like everyone is staring at my face the whole time i am 100% sure not one person in my year has a nasty blemish which they are actually worrying about, it's just awkward i can't relax around school and be myself. Can't wait for my skin to clear. I developed a huge cyst by my nose on the left side of my face just in time for my first day back! Amazingly it is a scab now and only lasted 4days max. I have two red patches left from two cysts from the initial
  8. Hey, are you from England? I have just been upped to 40mg about a week ago and have not got to go back for 3 months as well! I think i have to take two 20mg tablets for 8 weeks, then start taking 55mg for 4 weeks and come back. I have 3 months worth of prescription filling up my draws haha!
  9. Haha hearing that i will definately try quitting although that's easier said than done! But if i found out my skin has become worse from the smoking that would really get me in the zone to quit..I know exactly how you feel, my face looks terrible but will try to keep positive otherwise i'm just gonna be in a really bad mood all day! Anyway good luck to you too, thanks will keep an eye on how your doing too
  10. Heeeey, thanks for the reply on my blog was just reading yours! Were you advised to cut down smoking because of the accutane? I am a smoker too although my dermatologist doesn't actually know haha! :)Also just keep thinking of how good your skin is going to look soon, and hopefully after each month it will improved just enough to give you more confidence each month. Fingers crossed my skin can't and won't get any worse!
  11. Thanks for the reply! (: Yeah i'm glad my dosage is 40mg now cus 20mg didn't really seem a lot! Acne is the biggest killer on my self confidence, i hate it.. (Before acne i was actually quite a confident person believe it or not) Yeah good luck to you hope it works nicely, we should start to see some really good results within another month or two.. Has your skin improved at all since you started?
  12. So it's been 1 month on Roaccutane and it's gone really fast so i'm hoping next month will too.. Basically this week has been a mess, when i first saw my dermatologist over a month ago she said i would next see her in about 6 weeks time. It was coming up to six weeks the other day so i rang up as i hadn't been sent a letter to say when my next appointment would be. They said it is because they are 2months behind on appointments so i would have to wait 2 months. I argued my way through and luc
  13. So it's day 26! Gone soo fast.. Skin is looking bad got a huge breakout on my right cheek by my nose which all started from that huge cyst now other spots are on there, it's very painful so i don't play with it although it's extremely tempting! Need some advice on a moisturizer to purchase?! anyone? i haven't got one yet and need to buy a good one - i live in the uk so bare that in mind please.. Lips are getting soo annoyingly dry. Applying lip balm every half hour, i've forgotten what

    Day 2

    Good Luck! What products are you using whilst on accutane? I am on day 21, 20mg a day and have not yet purchased a moisturizer for the day, would you advise using one? I did buy a night moisturizer but i think it broke me out so discontinued use.. Also which aquaphor do you buy to use on lips, the healing ointment or the small tube specifically for lips? thanks,
  15. Been a while so thought i would post! It's day 20 and have seen some improvements, still getting acne as usual but the left side of my face has definitely cleared and not really getting many spots just left with all those nasty scars/red marks! The right side of my face is a different story i have that big cyst still and lots of horrible spots on my right side.. I have kinda forgotten i was taking the drug i'm just living on as usual not really thinking about it just taking each pill everyda
