  1. Hi, It's been a while since my last blog so thought I'd update today. It's been 30 days (well over actually but my derm messed up my appointments so I've had a 4 day break from the roaccutane) and I have my first follow up appointment today where I'll have my blood test and pregnancy test as well. Apart from the dry lips, which I mention a lot, and generally dry skin I have only really suffered with the occasional nose bleed and hardly any other side effects lately. My face is looking
  2. Hey, I have been on Accutane for 2 weeks now and have written a blog which you're more than welcome to read to see if it gives you a bit more information. The only side effects I have to date are dry lips, dry skin and I have just started to get little nose bleeds. Not often, once every 2 days or so. The change in my skin since I started is amazing but you need to stick with it as you can get a break out in the first 7-10 days. Although it is not for everybody so I would recommend se
  3. Hey, I know how you feel but you really need to see your GP and then you will probably need a referral to a Dermatologist. I am 27 in 2 weeks and I still struggle with bad skin but only because it took me years to pluck up the courage to talk about it and I wish I had done something when I started getting break outs straight away (17 years old). The sooner you go to seek help from the professionals the sooner you will start to see your skin improve and also your confidence. I hope you are

    Cetaphil...

    WOW... Cetaphil... I literally don't know how I ever lived without this cream... It is the best I have used and keeps my skin hydrated. Yes, I am still using it 3-4 times a day but it lasts longer and feels good. It cost £10 but the tube is pretty big so hopefully it will last a couple of weeks. Face Update: Looking so much clearer... Had a breakout this week (have attached a pic) which lasted 2 days but compared to how long they would usually last (1-2 weeks) I am amazed at how quickly it
  5. Hi again So, I've successfully completed week one on Roaccutane! I have to admit it's been a busy 3 days (long weekend) as we've had friends over and places to go so we haven't stopped at all... but I think this is the key to success! Every time I get up and don't have many plans, these are the times I feel low and want to sleep constantly. However, when I am busy and surrounded by people I feel OK, kinda normal. So my advise is to keep busy and not let your mind go into overdrive!

    Day 5

    It is tough but it's about finding what works and going with it and staying strong. I'm glad it's not just me that struggles with siblings, my brother used to call me Saw as I get clusters on my cheeks and I looked like a horror film LOL!

    Day 5

    Woke up today feeling absolutely fine and I'm pretty sure it is due to the fact that I treated myself to an eyelash lift last night which has boosted my confidence a bit. The beauty therapist I saw last night was on roaccutane for 18 months and it was great to actually speak to someone face to face, who had amazing skin, who could talk me through their experience with the drug as all my friends have flawless skin. Sure, she was brutally honest about the side effects but having seen how she h

    So Far...

    So... I'm 26 (27 next month) and I have suffered with acne rosacea on and off for the last 10 years. After my last breakout which left my confidence in shatters I decided that enough was enough and to seek help from a dermatologist instead of my local GP. After an 11 week wait to see the dermatologist, my acne had cleared up due to the course of antibiotics I had taken and I walked into the consulting room and was met with what can only be described as confusion as my skin did not show any s
