    Third time on accutane (!) - a log

    Day 24 Im still suffering from the squeezing on the left hand side of my face the other day, I’ve had about 4 nasty inflamed spots as a result, around jaw/chin, but I think I’m over the worst of it now. Right side of my face is looking the best it’s looked in AGES! Flat and no actives (apart from weird bumps along jaw). Ive had a LOT of movement this weekend in terms of blackheads. Gunk continues to fall out the sides of my nose. Blackheads on my nose are getting closer to the top so m

    Day 22 Bad skin day. Had a whitehead pop up yesterday on bit under nose but above lip. I hate getting spots there! I went to town on my closed comedones yesterday. I know it’s bad, but I feel like unless I squeeze them, no progress is made. Sure enough, about four of them on my left side jaw have become inflamed and painful today my own fault. Blackheads on nose are definitely getting closer to the surface and purging! I keep thinking I’m wiping dry skin away until I lean closer

    Day 21 Three weeks! Left cheek back on track. Right cheek continues to look really good. No active spots there and redness seems to be fading. Overall, I could be imagining this, but my face seems more bareable to look at in the mirror then it was when I was on antibiotics...? I’m not sure why, because I see such little progress with closed comedones. Anyway, I’m not complaining. Lips are worst they’ve been today. Constantly peeling and red. Rung for blood test result

    Day 20 We are in the 20’s! Had a full on nosebleed when I woke up this morning. Aside from dry lips and some dry skin on top of right hand, all other side effects have come and gone. Spot wise - I’ve had a few things pop up (not from closed comedones) on parts of my face I don’t usually get acne, such as chin and forehead. Nothing major. Acne on cheeks continues to flatten. Still have hundreds of closed comedones on jaw that aren’t progressing, although they were reall

    Really interested to keep track of your progress too ajaxz! Day 19 Right cheek feels really nice and smooth today and looks a lot less red. Definitely a good skin day for my right cheek at least. Spot from yesterday on left cheek is flattening. Side effects... I’m extremely tired today despite getting my 8 hours sleep. My joint pain is still bad around pelvis.

    I’m female. Hm hard for me to answer the rest, as I can’t remember what my regimes were like after coming off accutane both times! Also my relapses were both very gradual and so not triggered by anything I don’t think. To be honest, accutane is such an intensive treatment, that for us multiple timers, I don’t think products/not using the right products wouldn’t have helped people like us. I think our issue is likely to be internal issues like hormones or food related issues you know?

    Urgh, can mods delete the post above? This is my blog, not a place for hard selling. Day 17 Scalp is so itchy this morning. That aside, nothing else new to report. Lips still dry. Hair still dry. Possibly some tiny flattening of squeezed lumps but nothing major!

    Day 16 More of the same. Side effects have probably been at their worst today so far - bad lips, headaches, scalp still slightly itchy even though I washed it with nizoral last night. It’s also very flakey now - I wore black today and when I brushed my hair I ended up covered in scalp flakes. Weirdly, my skin is yet again looking very oily today. Last night I caved and squeezed some of those hard lumps I was telling you about. They all popped in the same fashion - a very small bit

    Interesting, I hear about microdosing a lot but it’s never something I’ve been offered. What will be your dosage? I have never experienced hair loss on accutane (touch wood). In fact reading my second time blog I can see I thought my hair grew quicker on it. Are you male or female? Maybe micro dosing won’t be enough to trigger any hair loss? That is a really hard decision! I’ve often thought about what I would do if I started losing hair - stop the accutane or persevere? I think I’

    Don’t worry, I think I’m a pretty rare case. I’m striving to find and address the root cause (I hate throwing medication at anything to be honest!), but my relapse was getting so bad it was starting to affect my mental health and I was really worried about scarring. It was the only option I had whilst I strived to find the root cause! Also I am British... as much as I love the NHS, it is a national service at the end of the day and from what I read on here, those from other places have stro

    Day 15 Was feeling lazy last night so didn’t bother with BP OR moisturiser. Big mistake! I woke up this morning and the skin around my current spots (that I’ve been putting BP on over the last few weeks) was dry and flakey. Should have moisturised. Lesson learnt Also noticed a very small bit of blood in nostril this morning. Feeling disheartened about skin today. I’ve had another lump come up on left cheek. I now reckon I’ve got two lumps on left cheek, two in a row on right chee

    Day 14 (which makes no sense as I started accutane on a Friday, so surely tomorrow is my two week accutane anniversary! This always pickles my head) Not a lot to report. I’m still using BP cream on nasty spots. I’ve probably got about 3 cysty whiteheads I’m using BP on. I’m also using BP on those hard jawline lumps I keep talking about but it doesn’t do anything on them at all. Side effects are absolutely fine. My lips were okay this morning. I put aquaphor on about 2-3 hours ago and s

    Day 13 Spots are still feeling a bit flatter today although I have had one blow up on my chin - 100% my fault as it was a closed comedone I squeezed! I washed my hair last night for the first time since Saturday afternoon! Hooray for no grease. However, the downside is that despite me using an intensive hair mask and shampoo/conditioner last night, my hair feels awfully dry and dull today.. Can’t have it all!?

    Ahh Interesting. You would have reached a pretty decent culmulative dose last time then? I wouldn’t fret over being bumped up to 80! Like you say, it may even shorten the course and it may not be as much of a jump as going from 40 to 60 for example. I hear ya. I’m terrible at picking and squeezing. I’ve got so many bright red marks on me today from fresh spots I’ve picked and they’ve then bled! I too have hundreds of closed comedones on my chin and jaw. I hope not every single one com
