  1. Day 23 Crazy how time flies! I don't really have any pimples, and that's great!! I am still struggling with my makeup. My face is blotchy and very red, so I have to wear makeup. My skin is still oily unfortunately, but it is also flaky. Makeup is such a pain! My face doesn't feel dry though? I apply cerave cream twice a day, and aquaphor all over my face at night. I don't understand someone help me! I have been using a primer which is helping somewhat, but I haven't found the right one. Si
  2. Day 15 Hello to you all! My skin actually is not that dry. I moisturize twice a day, but it honestly was drier with Benzyl Peroxide and Retin A. Interesting how that is right? Well the only side effect I have noticed is back pain, but that could be because I was on my feet working for a long time today! My lips are not even that dry. My skin has not had any huge breakouts since the first week(knock on wood) but I do have some smaller ones. I can't really tell if thy are actually pimples or jus
  3. Day 13 I am sorry I have not updated in awhile! I was on vacation. So my skin has not necessarily broken out, but I do have VERY itchy skin on my face. i moisturize 3-4 times a day with cerave cream, and use aquaphor at night, but it is still so itchy! I also have a lot of little bumps on my face that attribute to the itchiness, because they aren't pimples. I am debating if i should go see my doctor, because the itching is terrible! My lips are chapped, but they aren't incredibly bad. Besi
  4. Help! My skin has been dehydrated for as long as I remember. I am on my second week of accutane. My face is dry, but not extremely. Still very oily. I'm having the worst time with makeup. My skin is not necessarily dry, but my makeup looks horrible. It's all patchy. I am using great moisturizers, cetaphil spf 15 with jojoba oil in the morning, and cerave cream with jojoba oil at night. Help me! I hate wearing makeup because I know it looks awful but I feel self conscious without it! I'm currentl
  5. Day 7 Sorry it has been awhile guys. I am on Day 7, and I am on vacation. I haven't noticed dry lips or less oil yet. Before starting Accutane, I had dry flaky skin from years of BP and retin a use. Makeup has been a challenge, and still is. I use Cetaphil SPF 15, Cerave Cream, and I recently started with Jojoba Oil. I haven't seen much difference, anyone have experience with Jojoba oil? I seem to notice some small flesh raised bumps, but I can't really tell. Could be the Accutane. I haven't ha
  6. Hi I am on accutane, and I think my skin is just super dehydrated from when I used duac and retin a. I am on day 6 of accutane, and using cerave cream. Whenever I try and apply makeup, it gets all flaky. Help me!!
  7. Day 3 The headaches have mostly gone away, but that could be because I am drinking a lot more water. My face is alright, I have a big painful zit on my forehead, a few on my chin, and one of my nose. I haven't had dry skin or dry lips yet, but that could be because I post aquaphor on my lips frequently and moisturize with cerave cream morning and night. I just wish the medicine would kick in! I feel like i am not doing anything to treat my acne since the accutane has not kicked in and i can't u
  8. Thanks friends! Soaruphigh, what day are you on and what mg? Newslang I am taking 40 mg! How is your skin doing? It is great to have support!!
  9. Hello all.... I am writing this to share my experience with you. I have struggled with acne since I was 12, and I am now 19. I have been on retinoids, antibiotics, basically everything. Day 2 My skin is breaking out a lot. I am not sure if this is due to the topicals being stopped, or the Accutane itself. I believe it is the topicals. I have a large zit on my forehead, and about five smaller ones all around my face. I have a large zit near my mouth. Products I am using: Cet
  10. I need some help. So I had been clear for a long time(over a year) on the following regimen: Am: cetaphil normal-oily skin cleanser Duac Cetaphil moisturizer Oracea Pm: cetaphil cleanser again Retin a micro .04 Cetaphil moisturizer Ortho tri cyclen Then, I started getting occasional cysts on my chin, so I went to ortho cyclen. This cleared me up completely for two months. I stopped taking oracea, and my skin went downhill quickly. I started getting lots of little pimples al
  11. Hello fellow acne sufferers, I have been on Duac(benzoyl peroxide + clindamycin) and retin a micro .04 % now for over a year, and my skin is so oily, yet so flaky. I am trying to cure my flakiness. I am currently using cetaphil moisturizer, but it is not doing enough. Here are my options: -jojoba oil -Cetaphil moisturizing cream -aquaphor -cerave pm moisturizer what are your thoughts?
  12. Estrostep is norethindrone acetate + ethinyl estradiol. Ortho is norgestimate + ethinyl estradiol. None of these are associated with a (significantly) higher risk of deep vein thrombosis. I haven't seen any studies comparing these two specifically, but I guess they'd be the same in effectiveness. Concerning other skin effects, watch out for jaundice or melasma/discoloration. You may have to go on Accutane. Good luck!Thanks for responding to me! My doctor actually won't prescribe me Accutane. Do
