  1. It took me at least 2 months and I was pretty dry. It's different for everyone though.
  2. Thanks for the update! Your skin looks great!! I noticed you had said you had some ice pick scarring, did it get any better over time? Thank you! The scars are very diminished...It literally looks like a tiny dot and you can notice it only if you're really close to my face. I think when I stop taking accutane, it should improve some more or at least I hope so!
  3. Wow! It's been a long time. I wanted to update you guys. I'm on 8th month of my accutane journey on 20 mg everyday. I think I will do one more month. My skin has improved a lot!! I mean I still have red marks and few scars, but I am hopeful it will disappear over time. My pores have gotten big on the left side of my cheek whereas my right side my pores are literally nonexistant. It's weird. My skin doesn't look as young/fresh sometimes but I am assuming because accutane dries you out. As for th
  4. I thought I would do a little update. So today is day 51. My skin has been alright. I haven't noticed a drastic improvement. I have a few actives on the left-hand side of my cheek, but my right is clear. YAY! My red marks look worse under a certain light and better in others and thats the same with my shallow-icepick scars. I would like to mention some of the side-effects I have been experiencing. I been feeling tired quite often. I work from 8-6, which drains all my energy. I usually pass out
  5. Hey! I am also on 20mg everyday for 5 months. When I started, my skin felt itchy and sensitive too! But it all subsided within a couple of weeks. The side effects are not too bad with 20mg but hey everyone is different. I get dry lips but they can easily be fixed with some lip balm. Overall, my progress has been slow but steady. I am praying everything turns out okay. Good luck with your treatment!!
  6. Thanks! My skin is VERY oily and 20 mg is enough to keep it at bay. I don't have to blot my skin AT ALL during the day. It's amazing! I just want the scarring to get better! It's so hard not to think about it. Good luck with your treatment too! When do you start? hopefully, tomorrow! I have the appointment. did you start moisturising the first day or wait until it got dry?Im scared but thinking positive. Remember scarring is very unnoticable its the big red bumps which are the biggest problem
  7. Hello! I just read through your log and I wanted to say congratulations on embarking on this journey to clear skin! I am in the same boat as you. For me 20 mg has been pretty good. I would definitely would not want to go higher because I am really scared of the side-effects. If your scalp is really dry/itchy, what I use is coconut oil on my hair. I leave it in for at least an hour and wash it out. It helps soothe my scalp. As for the face, it is best not to do anything! I am just using cetaph
  8. I think your skin is clearing up great! You just have redmarks that will fade with time. You really have to be patient and give it some time. Accutane isn't a quick fix. I'm in the same boat as you...and I completely understand it is very hard. But there is light at the end of the tunnel! Good luck!

  10. So today is day 41 on accutane-20 mg everyday for 5 months (22 female/55kg). I have not skipped any pills since coming back from college. So far my skin is VERY smooth but raw. I have not had the dreaded IB. I mean I have broken out and gotten like a few pimples on my cheeks that would go away in 2-3 days. Since I am not breaking out, my skin is finally starting to heal. I have all these REDMARKS from my old acne. And outta no where, I have these shallow icepick scars on my right cheek that are
