  1. It's awful, I read all these stories about how at 3 months they're all clear but I have to remind myself that I am on a low dose, my only side effect is dry lips. I have incredibly sensitive skin so my doctor said I am not allowed to have a topical cream and to use roaccutane at the same time. Do you know of a good cleanser that might help? I am so embarrassed to leave the house or to even look people in the eye. I can't wait to see a change soon enough!
  2. Hi All, I have been using low dose (20mg) roaccutane a day for 3 months and I have had no change and I am still getting a new pimple almost every day. Is this normal? When should I expect it to start clearing up? I only ever had mild acne before and now it is 10x worse than when I started using Acne. I need someone to reassure me that this is normal and that in th next couple months I should see a change.
  3. I am at day 53! Forehead is now clear, everywhere else is still bad, on day 61 I start at 20mg hopefully my skin clears soon!
  4. I am just going to keep pushing on. I just have to remind myself of the end result. I haven't had clear skin for 10 years now. The day I have clear skin I think I might have a party hhaha. Good luck to you too! Hope it all goes well and we are both clear soon enough!
  5. Okay I took both your advice and stopped using it, my face is still breaking out with about 2 pimples a day and my blackheads are looking worse and worse everyday. I hope this stops soon. I am on day 16 I think. My face looks horrible I have never had this many pimples at one time ever. I am getting very self conscious to the point I don't even want to go to the shop to get groceries. I am even too worried about how I look that I am not going to my friends 21st this weekend. As to the oil, my
  6. I am pretty healthy like not low on anything. My GP gave me thumbs up that's how good I am. The antibiotics are only 50mg. I just can't handle it I don't even want to go out of the house or anything
  7. I eat pretty healthy all the time anyway, my skin was never really bad. I just had lots of little pimples on my forehead and a few on my jaw. Now I have so many on my jaw yet on my forehead there has been maybe 1 new one lol. My face feels like sunburn lol. My derm said that after 2 months I will go up to 20mg too. I go on holiday in June and I hope it is some what better or atleast if I could wear make up lol. I am taking my antibiotics as well(without my derm knowing) seeing if that
  8. How long until you stopped breaking out and started seeing results?
  9. I can't even remember where I put my booklet lol. I have only just wore mineral powder instead of foundation today it's not as noticeable so might need to just use that. Thank you! I will try the aloe Vera and the neutrogena hand cream! I am just using paw paw cream for my lips and that is good!
  10. Hey all, Looking for a good moisturiser for my skin while on accutane? My skin is red and flaking/peeling off. My pimples are sore around them. My skin is still oily though as only been on accutane for almost 2 weeks. Please someone help me! I work in a professional position and it's quite embarrassing meeting clients with my skin flaking off. I am from Australia! Thank you!
  11. 10 days now and I have never had this much big pimples on my face. I hope this is the intital breakout so I can get it over and done with so it can start to clear. Face is peeling and flaking and it is painful. That is the only side effect I have had. Not really any dry lips and still have oil. Still so long to go
  12. I have a few new pimples so far, I am hoping it doesn't get much worse. But I haven't had any side effects yet and it's been 6 days now. Still oily face, no dry lips or anything. The only thing I have noticed is that my skin is more sensitive like if I scratch myself with my nails it hurts more then it used to: but so far so good. Thanks for replying!!
  13. I started taking Accutane yesterday on 10mg a day. My first pill yesterday left me feeling quite nauseas and I had it straight after my food. Today no nauseas. No side effects at all yet. I am so very nervous for the side effects. I have quite a vibrant social life and I am incredibly scared of having a initial breakout, but I guess it's worth it to have clear skin at the end. My next dermatologist appointment is 11 June 2015. The day after I go on holiday. I am hoping there is some change or th
  14. Hey all! Today I am going to start taking accutane for the first time! I have read over 150 reviews on this product and I can't wait to start it! My dermatologist says I will need to be on accutane for 1 year at the incredibly low dose. I am not looking forward to the side effects and the initial break out, but I guess it I finally have clear skin in the long run that it will be worth it! If you would like to know any questions or follow my progress I am happy share everything with yo
