  1. Haha I get that as well! I exfoliate my lips and that's been helping some, but I can still feel a bit of dead skin on them right now. Just thankful that I don't have any chapped/cracked mess to deal with at the moment Day 18 New blackheads seem to be coming in daily on my nose and they just look plugged up and congested! A little annoying, but if this is the extent it's going to be, then I'm fine with that. Still using my normal face washes, lotions, and serums with no sensitivity. The onl
  2. It's definitely unpredictable! Who know what will happen next... Sorry to hear your eyes are really dry! That sounds so uncomfortable. I'm keeping my fingers crossed I don't experience that. I'd hate having to put eye drops in my eyes! And cracked and bleeding lips definitely aren't kissable! Lmao! Really? I can't imagine any package being harder to open than the Claravis ones! Man, I hate them! I do keep my pills in the little pill cases, but I tuck them away in a dresser drawer so they ar
  3. Is okay to feel sorry for yourself! I have days like that quite often lately. We all have them actually. That's why you are on this board! For support right. Accutane is for sure a roller coaster ride, I've had many ups and downs, I hae to admit it but mostly downs. So I can totally feel your pain. Last week all my acne was healing and now all of a sudden I have like 6 new zits that have popped up over the weekend. It's not fair I know but it will stop sooner or later. I am on my 3rd month and m

  5. Thanks guys Aghhh I'm definitely getting the initial breakout right now, I have like five red spots on my left cheek and one on my right cheek- it could definitely be worse, but I'm hoping/praying it doesn't get worse. I honestly try soooo hard not to touch my skin but it's really hard not to, my face is gross right now and I'm feeling really sad and ugly- and kind of pathetic for getting so sad about acne. It just sucks! Last week, I was almost completely clear, now back to square one. My skin
  6. DAY 15 My lips and my nose are sooooooo sooo dry/flaky/gross. I think I might be getting my initial breakout- truthfully, it's not any worse than breaking out before I went on Accutane and my skin still looks better than the day I started, but I definitely didn't break out at all for like the first twelve days of being on the meds, and now I am :/. As far as side effects go, I have very, very dry skin especially on and around my nose and mouth. I've been getting nosebleeds every once in awhile
  7. ALSO does anyone know of a moisturizer for super super sensitive skin other than Cerave? Cerave daytime is making me break out a little (I've only been using it on and around my nose/cheekbones, where I never break out- until I started using it)
  8. Day TEN! BeautifulDisasters, I couldn't agree with you more about the pills. I feel like it CAN'T be good for me to be taking so many, but then again there's really not a choice with Accutane. And I'll look into milk thistle- I've been panicking because I've been drinking like normal and feel fine- I LOVE wine, but I'm afraid I'm going to go back and my liver is going to be terrible. And I know, it's dumb to drink on Accutane. But honestly, unless my liver reports come back terrible, I'm 22 yea
  9. Thank you!! I'll try out the vaseline for my lips; I took your advice and made sure that there was no Vitamin A in the supplements I picked up yesterday- I'm now taking biotin, vitamin b12, and iron along with my 40mg claravis pill every day. I hate taking all of these pills but I just need to keep reminding myself that it's not forever. DAY 8 I don't want to psyche myself out, but my skin is definitely way drier than it was a week ago. It is flaking like crazy- I woke up this morning and had
  10. Hey! I actually drank as much as I normally do this past weekend, which is probably stupid, but I guess I'll find out once I get my liver tests back. I feel absolutely fine- I did get drunk after like a glass of wine though which was weird. Glad to see you're doing okay! Any side effects yet?
  11. Congrats! I just started a week ago so we'll be almost at the same place. I also have mild but annoyingly persistent acne, and I totally get friends/relatives thinking you're nuts for going on it, but no one knows how annoying persistent acne can be unless it's on your face. I'm also really scared about the IB- I haven't noticed anything except for slightly drier lips and skin but like I said, I'm only a week in. Good luck!
  12. Day 7 (can't believe I've been on this for a week) So I woke up this morning and my skin is DEFINITELY drying out- it was a little flaky and definitely tight and this is gross and probably TMI, but the area around my nostrils hurts. Oh well, if you can't say that kind of stuff here then where can you? I moisturized today because I'm spending the day hiking and don't want to get sunburned. As far as breakouts go, I had one flare up by my lower cheek/chin area but that's really the only noticeabl
  13. Hey! I haven't been moisturizing really because until today, my skin hasn't been dry at all. I know what you mean about the topicals- I've been afraid to stop using them out of habit but I know I'll have to soon! Day 6 Sooooo today was the first day I've noticed any changes- and that's not saying much, because honestly, they're not big changes and could just be flukes. My skin was matte almost the whole day and felt reallyy tight when I got out of the shower- still does, in fact, and my lips
  14. Thanks guys NeedAMIracle, so jealous that you're already a month in. I'm soooo nervous about my first month but I feel relieved to finally be on the medication after such a long, annoying decision making process. Day 5 Sooooo I took my pill at lunchtime today instead of at night (what a rebel ha) and feel fine (crossing my fingers). I also had a couple of glasses of wine last night and felt perfectly fine this morning- obviously I'll continue to be cautious, but it was kind of a relief. M
  15. I love that we're (almost) on the same day- I haven't really had anything happen yet either (except for the oil thing which sucks) but it's nice to have someone on the same track to remind me that anything I might be feeling at this point is probably just in my imagination.
