  5. Thanks so much! 1 week post Accutane Still a few actives but no cysts Skin still dry around mouth & eyes Pain in hands and feet is getting a bit better Hands still dry but not red/inflamed.
  6. Hi Mimmy, Here are my tips: Shampoo your hair less frequently Use a humidifier Start applying chapstick ASAP Cleanse with a gentle cleanser Use moisturizer a few times per day Use a body wash instead of soap Take your pill with something that has fat (for better absorption) Hope that helps!
  7. So glad you're skin is clearing up and that you're enjoying life. Cheers!
  8. Glad things are better for you. I wish you continued clearing!

  10. Day 1 Post Accutane I took my last pill yesterday. I was on it a total of 157 days. I have a few small actives, no cysts. Posting before/after. Thanks for reading and for the support!
  11. I have 5 days worth of pills left. I have a few actives but nothing major. I am really looking forward to being off the medicine so that my body can recover from the side effects that I've been experiencing. Really hoping I won't be in as much pain. Thanks for reading & good luck to all!
  12. Hi Del! Just checking in to see if things have gotten better for you. Hope to hear from you soon.
  13. Hi Ang! Congrats on starting your 5th month! That is so weird that the rash comes and goes in waves for us. At least we're not alone I guess! Good luck on the bloodwork!
  14. I use a humidifier at night and it's really helped my dry sinuses. I have that same hand rash. It comes in waves. One day it will be so red and irritated that it hurts to wash my hands. The next day it could be almost normal looking! Frustrating! I use Cetaphil and it helps. Really hope things are going well for you, Ang!
