    Drug Free

    Sooo I went to my final derm appointment one month ago and he said I was good to stop taking accutane. This made me very happy!! After 13 months of medication, almost 10 of them being accutane it actually feels like I'm forgetting something in the morning without the need of medication! My face is still extremely pigmented with a few dints.. They are fading but I understand this will take a long time, I have an appointment with a skin specialist for 5 months time to get it looked at once accutan

    29 Weeks

    I go to China in 3 weeks,super excited.. I wonder how I'll go with all of my pills haha. So I still have 2 lumps under my kin, same places as the dermo thought they would 'go away them selves' ha.. that was almost 2 months ago now so I'm going to try and get back in before I travel. Im super happy as I can completely cover my redness now just with Clinique Red Solution foundation in Ivory, I have had the same 30ml bottle since about March and it's still about half way.. I also found it on ebay f

    Six Months

    I remember when I first got put on accutane they said it would be for 6 months. Well happy six months, if all went well I would now be done. I had my last appointment about 2 weeks, had another injection into my check, darn thing is persistent. I am back on antibiotics, E-Mycin these ones are called and they are suppose to stop the bacteria that is causing any lumps.. and I have to stay on these until I return in about 2 months. right now my face is completely dot free. flat and with make up you

    Hello, I am about 5 months in. Feel free to have a look at my blog and gallery.
  6. OK. Not much has changed. No new dots. Just the same lumps near my nose that will most likely get injected in 3 weeks when i have my next appointment, I have never been so excited to get stabbed in the face!! I am still on 20mg of Accutane a day.. they said I still have another 7 months to go, finishing up in Dec. A whole year! arg. But it has gone quick. My hyper pigmentation is still very much there, i got some dermablend concealer ( you can cover tatts with this stuff) it was pretty cheap a
  7. I read some where the other day that you were looking for something for dry/eczema type rashes. I have been using for the past few days Egoderm Cream, which is for dry, itchy, red, lumpy rash type things- I had this one particular spot on my chin thats extra dry and a big rash came up, 3 nights of using this cream and it ia almost gone (it stinks really bad though). Maybe you could give that a go?
  8. My hair is falling out more too (
  9. So its about 9 days since I had the injections in my face and wow, the swelling has completely gone and my cheek is flat for the first time since september hooray! now i can cover the red marks easily as they are not all gross and bumpy. I wish I got one in my chin too cause it is still a big lump, Ill be back in 7 weeks so I might ask then if it is not gone.. A few bumps cam up on my other cheek and I put some refining mask that I had from the Proactive bundle from a few years ago...(sucke
  10. I have been on it for about 3 months and it has not changed my mood in the slightest.. if any thing seeing the improvement has taken me out of hell and Im feeling amazing. the first month was really hard for me and i wanted to hide, but things are looking up now! best of luck!
  11. Hello, I had my first cortisone injections yesterday, as well as a shit load of squeezing or pressure or just ouch that made me sooo dizzy. I looked in the mirrow afterwards and my face was white and bloody. Today the swelling has gone in half I suppose, which is really good as this thing on my cheek was massive and hurt so much. I think it might keep going down as the day goes on up until 24 hrs or something, hope so! he also prescribed E-Mycin (have not had this one before) that is meant to

    Week 12Ish

    hello, So I am still on the cortisone and it has helped alot, might not need those face injections next week! that would make me happy. I have stopped using Epiduo (it was amazing) just don't need it any more. annddd apart from those deep bumps the rest of my face is completely free of any dots. It still looks like hell from all the pigmentation but i can say ive had no new dots for a good few weeks now horay! so my skin can finally start to heal. For the last 2 weeks I have been using rosehi

    Day 1

    I find cetaphil moisturiser really good, but I hate the facewash. I'm not sure if you wear make up but if you do it wont wash it off, I tried it for a little while and it's good in the morning but at night i come out of the shower with make up still on! good luck on roaccutane too, it messed my face up to begin but I am almost 3 months in and things are looking alot better
