  1. Sorry I have not been updating my accutane experience for a while. I have been only updating it at http://www.clearskin.net/viewtopic.php?t=3225 I got lazy about writing on 2 websites am really sorry!! I have now been on accutane for about a month and a half and my skin is still breaking out pretty badly which is depressing. I have not really had any side effects though which is great Just hope that my skin begins to improve soon.
  2. Week 3/ Day 5 The past week has gone by sooo fast! I have been on accutane for almost 3 weeks now, can't believe how fast the time has passed. The beginning of this week was terrible, but my skin has started to look loads better. I've only had one small spot come up in the past few days, and the old breakouts are all healing very well. I am feeling so much better right now! I spent the last 3 days in Italy and had an absolutely wonderful time, I hardly thought about my skin at all. In the
  3. You need to take vitamin D with calcium so make sure to stock up on that too.
  4. I have been on accutane for almost 3 weeks and am just getting over what I think was my initial breakout. My skin has not been very bad either and I was really hoping that I would not get an initial breakout, but I did get one and it was pretty bad! So if you do take accutane, it's best to start it after any pageants or other modelling work. At the moment though my skin is a lot better than it was when I first began accutane. Good luck with the pageants!!
  5. If the brevoxyl is irritating your skin, you could try applying it less frequently. I used brevoxyl for years, and it did help my skin. When I first began to use it, I would also get some irritation so I just applied it a few times a week. My skin then gradually got used to it and I was able to apply it more frequently. Good luck!
  6. I really think it is too bad that people blame accutane for so many things. In some ways I think it can be dangerous because people may be completely ignoring other problems they are having, choosing instead to place blame on accutane. A lot of these people may have serious psychological or physical problems which they should be addressing. I also think that it's a shame because all the negative publicity accutane gets also scares away a lot of people who could really benefit from taking it. S
  7. BP helped a little bit with the blackheads on my nose.
  8. Sorry to hear that you are feeling so down. I know it's hard, but try to be strong and don't give up! There are a lot of ignorant people out there who know no better than to stare and wonder. Try not to let them get to you; you are obviously a much better person than they are!! Always remember that it's what's on the inside that counts. There are a lot of us here who understand you and what you are going through. We are here for you! I really hope that the doctors you are seeing will help you.
  9. People tend to break out very differently from accutane. Some people don't get an initial breakout at all, but it seems like most do. I am on week 2 of accutane, and have definitely broken out much worse than ever before on any medication etc. I had 4 huge cysts on my chin this week which has never happened before. But hopefully it will all have been worth it in the end
  10. Vanessa is right!! Don't waste any more of your money on this derm. It seems obvious to me that she is not taking your condition seriously. Based on your description you sound like someone who would qualify for accutane. Definitely go and see someone else to get a second opinion. Acne is also a condition which can in many cases be fixed with the proper treatment. Good luck, be strong!!!!
  11. Glad to hear that you met some nice people Just give it some time, I am sure that once you spend some more time with these people you'll start feeling more comfortable around them. I used to be extremely insecure around new people for years for absolutely no reason. I am now 23 and have only recently realised that I had no reason to be insecure around other people. I used to think that everyone was so much better than me. We are all the same though, each with our own flaws and insecurities.
  12. hi laz, How's it going, are you seeing any improvement?? Good luck!
  13. Try not to let stuff like that get you guys. Making comments about other people's pics is really childish. I think all the people who put their pics up in the gallery are really brave!!! The pics have been really interesting and helpful, thanks.
  14. I totally agree with what Mercer is saying. The most important thing is to be well-informed. Do your research about whichever drugs you are considering and make sure that what you are using is right for you. Good luck!! xx
  15. Week 2/ Day 5 OMG!!!!!!!!!!! Ok I am having the worst breakout!!! I have the biggest zit I have ever had EVER on my chin, it is totally disgusting!!! And I had a job interview today!!!! Have felt so self-conscious all day, couldn't wait to get home. There is also another bump under my skin on my chin right next to this huge one I also have a largish cyst on my forehead.. My forehead is still full of lots of tiny bumps, nothing much has happened there. Nose also still full of blackheads.
