  1. Ok. So I am on Day 109 of my Accutane treatment (Now on 40mg p/d). Hey guys this update is a long time coming. I always find it frustrating when people drop off their blogs or dont finish telling their stories. Unfortunately I work full time, go to night school in digital marketing, play basketball 3 nights a week - so as you can imagine my acne.org efforts dropped off. The Treatment so far (in a nutshell): My experience on accutane like most is a roller-coaster of adjustment - It to
  2. Hey Rohan, I wrote you a big post ages ago, but It somehow didnt go through .... Thanks so much for your support and words was the jist of it! Really means alot in my little world hahaha Have you finished your course now?
  3. Hi there, I am a 24 year old male from Australia. I have been on 20mg of Accutane a day for the last 2 months. Anyway my question is: I have developed these little bumps on my forehead and on my cheeks. The bumps at first are soft and appear like clogged pores i believe, but some become a more little raised, and fairly dry and rough. So my problem lies in the fact that thick creamy moisturizers even the non-pore clogging ones, seem to clog my pores - but if I choose a lighter oil-free mo
  4. Hi Bena! Stop taking the fish oil immediately. My derm said that it can cause breakouts, especially if your skin is sensitive. I agree that everything is trial and error. The vitamin E cream that my derm gave me worked on all his patients except me, so I guess we're all very different when it comes to skin. I had a nasty food infection a few days ago and had to stop Isotroin for a few days. However, My skin has been looking quite good since last week's Vit E breakout and right now i can
  5. Ok. So I am on Day 46 of my Accutane treatment (20mg p/d). Haven't updated in awhile. Im on Day 46 and while my cysts had virtually stopped for a good 2 weeks, I mad the mistake of starting to take fish oil capsules, which just absolutely p|ssed off my skin. and got 2 cysts big painful cysts and a few pimples within 3 days of taking 2 high strength fish oil capsules a day. Ill just say if you take fish oil capsules and you know for certain it hasnt caused you hormonal cysts, then continue.

  7. Hey RohPas, I'm in same boat.. Skin took a little turn for the worse over last couple days.. Trying to be positive too. Also the sun is really taking its toll on my fair skin too! Sunscreen to me right now is vital! I had a mini breakout over chin.. maybe 6 little whiteheads and 2 inflammed pimples. I am blaming fish oil tablets for it at the moment.. hahahaa its the only new thing i have added and skin went from being clear of active acne to this.. so its all a bit of trail and error
  8. Wow! Very similar. I just posted on your blog
  9. Hey RohPas, Yeah our stories seem very similar indeed. A lot of what I have just read in yours is same circumstances and treatments as mine. Its crazy how a perfect diet and following every single anti acne regime didn't help at all. Thank goodness something like Accutane exists. I sort of got lazy with my blog.. With no real replies from the community here. I will try and put bi-monthly updates up though. Im on day 30 now.. My lips are always dry now, so I am using blistex medic on
  10. Ok. So I am on Day 18 of my Accutane treatment (20mg p/d). What can I say.... Epsom Salts have been a big help! skin yesterday was very very good.. no active pimples, and red marks were down.. couldnt really fault my upper face, was all quite clear and even toned. Today however, an inflammed pimple / blind pimple appeared on chin. So I extracted it and iced it for half an hour, then I have a nice layer of polysporin on it. I had some spicy curry red meat dish last night fro
  11. Ok. So I am on Day 14 of my Accutane treatment (20mg p/d). 2 weeks in now.. Skin has only micropeeled once on my nose, could have been from sun - my lips are slowly needing more maintenance as the days go on, still no issues those, besides getting dry and occasional little peel. Ive noticed, that my skin is breaking out a little more, at the moment, I have one deep cyst on chin, one sore little whitehead just below it, a red pimple between eyebrows, and another on top of forehead. Besi
  12. Ok. So I am on Day 12 of my Accutane treatment (20mg p/d). Not much has really changed in the last two days. A few pimples have come and gone quiet fast, still redness from them - but seem less aggressive. That being said I big wopping cyst is developing on my chin at the moment. Gonna be a big one thats for sure. I have applied Pure Tea Tree Oil to it a couple times, to hopefully penetrate and kill some of the bacteria. Once it takes hold (which is will), Ill get onto the Vicks Vapor
  13. Ok. So I am on Day 10 of my Accutane treatment (20mg p/d). I got my bloods back a couple days ago. And my Cholestrol was perfect, but my Liver function was on the 'higher side' according to my dermotologist. He asked a few questions, like if i had a virus or something - and then said sometimes it can be that I had glandular fever and didnt realise from early in the year. I was freaking as you might understand. I did get tonsilitus last May, which took a repeat of antibiotics before
  14. Ok. So I am on Day 6 of my Accutane treatment (20mg p/d). By the end of the day here is what I noticed. One of my cysts that was dormant became a little tender and inflammed, but suprising became a whitehead in a few hours. My lips have started to become dryer and are now needing to be moisturised on the go to, and not just in the morning and at night. Nose had tiny micro-peeling on the tip i noticed before bed, which im guessing is the accutane starting to dry up certain areas of the
  15. Ok. So I am on Day 5 of my Accutane treatment (20mg p/d). I went in for my first blood test today, which was quick and easy - fingers crossed my results are all good to continue. Ummm last night I got a regular pimple on my top left temple, which is very unusual, because I have only really had cysts for the last year, and I very rarely get any whiteheads on my forehead. So this is different. I applied some tea tree oil on it last night, and it currently has vicks on it today. Still f
