  1. Day 84 Hey everyone, good news over here! This week has been a good one for my skin. I had very minimal breakouts and have 0 (THAT'S RIGHT, I JUST TYPED THAT) actives! I saw my deem today, and he even told me that he wants me to only do a 5-month course and that the scarring I have will eventually go away. I'm flying home to California next Friday and I have finals for school this week, so I'm praying for a good week on several levels, including my complexion. Finally feel some self-confide
  2. Day 78 So.. I was having a pretty good stretch of days on Accutane since last week. Since my last update, things have been fairly good. But in the last few days, I've been having worse breakouts than I've had in a while. I suspect that it's because I've had so much sugar in the last few days. I'm totally just waiting for the turning point where I stop getting breakouts and everything starts recovering. Here are this week's pictures: Hopefully things will start turning around for me
  3. Kim, I spent 2 months on 60 mg, and after switching to 80 mg at my last doctor's visit, I did have a minor freakout on my face. It wasn't as intense as my initial in my first few weeks, but it was a breakout caused by the change in dosage. You'll be fine though. Make it through the first few weeks and it WILL get better!
  4. Day 72 After my last post, I was in a little bit of a funk so I decided to get my hair all cut off. I've felt like my long (and mangy) hair was something I've been hiding behind for far too long and that I need to start being able to look at myself and accept what I look like. I cut it all off (as you'll see in the new pictures below), and I'm glad I did. These last 10 weeks have been difficult, but I realize that things should be getting better soon. My face isn't exactly blowing up, bu
  5. Day 66 Today is my 6th day since my Derm upped my dosage from 30 mg twice a day to 40 mg twice a day. In the past 3 days, I think my face is feeling a definite change, as I've had another breakout on my forehead. Before starting Accutane, I would only very rarely have acne on my forehead. Anyways, I've got about 6 or 7 cysts and pustules on my forehead at the moment, but only 1 active on my right cheek. I suspect this recent breakout is because of the change in dosage, and I've also been experi

    Kim's Log

    Your progress has really been inspiring for me.. I really need something to look forward to, and I'm glad you've had such success. I'm on Day 65, and I'm really hoping that my skin will be clear in a few months.

    Josh's Roaccutane Log

    Hey, I know that the IB really sucks because my skin got 10x worse during the first few weeks. But I promise, eventually everything will begin to calm down a little bit. It's not going to be quick, but the cysts and pimples you may be experiencing right now will probably calm down within the next few weeks and as the course goes on, you'll generally be experiencing less and less of them.
  8. Here are pictures of my cheeks, as promised. Right... And here's the left cheek. I'll be updating each week's pictures on each Friday or Saturday (typically when I take them) Let me know what you think!
  9. Hello everyone. I've been a long-time lurker on this site and wanted to share my own personal struggle with acne and Accutane with this community by keeping a daily log on my progress and journey with acne and treatment. Here's a little background: I'm a 19-year-old college student who has struggled with acne since I was about 15 years old. I grew up my whole life in Southern California, and though my face was not perfect, my acne was not severe enough for me to even consider taking Accu
