    My Accutane Journey/Log

    Week 3 - Same shit storm as last week however Iv'e managed to remain at work all this week so far which is good I suppose. Still getting new painful extremely large cysts, old acne is taking forever to bloody heal and most aren't even acne anymore just hard lumps. No improvements as of yet. Side effects beginning to kick in slowly however, especially the dryness. My nose especially is becoming extremely dry and flaky, and for some weird reason my forearms are too. My ears even feel dry inside wh

    My Accutane Journey/Log

    Thank you for this! I honestly appreciate it so much. My skin at present is horrific. I count over 16 active red inflamed cysts. Im hoping this is my intial breakout as im into my 3rd week now. No side effects though at present and no improvement. Ill keep you posted!
  3. So iv'e been on accutane for nearly 3 weeks now and I haven't noticed any improvement at all. No dryness, no side effects at all. However my skin is the worst I have ever seen it. Like, I can count now about 15 large, painful red cysts that honestly look like I have a disease. Now I have never suffered form this many cysts at any point in my life - and the problem is they don't seem to heal, they just linger and get bigger. With pus and all kinds of gunk in them. Now I know that the intial bre
  4. So I thought I would start an accutane log to share with people my ongoing experience, in hopes that one day my story will inspire other people in a similar situation as me. So brief summary about my horrendous ongoing battle with severe onset, cystic acne. I started to develop severe acne when I was around the age of 18/19 - It has basically destroyed every part of my life for the past 5 years. I have tried diets, skin care regimes, cleanses - wasting a harrowing amount of money on different
  5. So for the past 5 years I have been living with severe extreme acne. It's torn my life apart, made me a shell of my former self and has made me a recluse. But what does living with extreme severe acne really feel like? It makes you hate yourself, the way you look, the way you feel. It leaves you with crippling depression, with no hope for the future. You feel lost, alone, empty. You can try every diet, regime, products there are out there - all will and have failed.
  6. Thank you, yeah I think it's what's best so far. Im just completely lost. It's the worst its ever been and it keeps on getting worse. I have started to use this tinted moisturiser for men and mens foundation thought and I do think that they are having a really bad impact, but my acne is so bad right now that i simply cant stop using, i NEED to cover them up. I think I shouldnt apply both the moisturiser AND the foundation perhaps on top
  7. It's horrible, mate. Like I keep imagining how good my life would be without it - all the thing I could do. There's just nothing that seems to be working. It's just worse and worse each day. How can anyone live like this? Im 24, i shouldnt have to suffer from it this bad when everyone else goes on with their life as they wish. Accutane is probably my only option. And even after it might work my acne will still come back - it always does.
  8. So I haven't posted on here for a good while. Im 24 now and when I was 19 I started to develop severe acne that progressed from mild. Iv'e pretty much lost all that I can think of in my life and then some because of it all - jobs, friends, relationships, family - my future. I did get my skin to a manageable point about 2 years ago on Dan Kern's regime and have been using his products the past 2 years however they slowly started to lose their effect and my skin just tolerated it more and more.
  9. Ok, so this is my first post in a long while but I thought it was needed. Iv'e had severe acne since I was 18 and it's basically destroyed a good chunk of my life. Dan Kern's Regime was the only thing that's actually made a difference and changed my life. Now when I did have severe acne I always had it on my cheeks and forehead; my nose was the only part of my face which was always clear and I had no problems with. Now since my cheeks and forehead have cleared up and I hardly get any acne the

    My Regimen Journey - Nearly 3 Months In

    Haha, my attitude is always negative! But yeah fingers crossed it will go well!
  11. Hey people. It's been quite a while since i last wrote a blog post so i thought i would update you all on how i have been getting on. In the November of 2013 I finally decided to purchase Dan Kern's regimen that i had been pondering over for a hell of a long time. I was reading all the thousand's of reviews that spoke so highly of it and thought I might as well give it a try. So I am about 2 and half months in now, nearly hitting the 3 month mark; and my the regimen has helped clear my skin
  12. Hello again. So i have my dermatologist appointment tomorrow and given the state of my face currently, he will no doubt want to put me on accutane, which will be my wish also because i really am at the end of my tether. However i have already ordered Dan Kerns' products and am just waiting for the Moisturiser to be delivered so i can finally get started on the regimen. Therefore this got me thinking; can taking accutane and being on the regimen affect the regimen in a way in which it wont be eff

    What Can Cause More Acne?!

    So i am honestly lost for words. This morning i woke up, went to look in the mirror and saw about 5 new big inflamed spots, 1 with a head on, and it's set me wayyyy back. I have been eating healthy now for the past 2 months. I haven't had no dairy, no gluten and no wheat, 3 factors of which i thought was causing my acne in the first place, i used to eat foods with these 3 ingredients in and i used to get spots the following day therefore i saw this as a change, and it wasn't easy let me tell you

    Desperately Need People's Advice!

    So, i am really really really confused at the moment. Acne just doesn't make any sense whatsoever!! My body is a wreck. Let me cut straight to the point: I have been gluten, Dairy and wheat free now for while now, and therefore hardly no shit is entering my body. However, i am now getting acne literally all over my face!!! So even when iv'e cut out all of these 'trigger' foods which was very difficult, i am now getting more acne than ever before. It's so odd, like my face has just exploded with
