  1. My Accutane journey so far has been a positive one due to the great products I've been using. Except for my poor dried out little eyes, no drop I could find would work… When you first get on Accutane, get yourself in a routine – wash & moisturize your face and lotion up every morning & evening. I seriously didn’t suffer the dry flakey-ness like most people on Accutane. I watched all You-Tube videos and the common thing was they wished they started moisturizing before the dryness came. DO
  2. Went to the Dermatologist 17 days ago but I was waiting to see how my face would be after receiving several steroid shots in my face! WTF! Those pesky ones on my left cheek just wouldn’t go away and the Derm suggested steroid shots to help them heal. I got 3 or 4 injections…and a couple of them did sting. Took almost a full week and those pesky ones finally went away! I feel a lot better and look a lot better! Also wanted to wait to post to see what would happen when that time of the mont

    4th Month Done - Queue Derm Visit

    Finshed my 4th month of Accutane! Time really has flown - I remember reading that & hearing that on YouTube videos and thinking "Yeah, right! Your in throes of Accutane desert dryness!" but it really has flown by! Day 107-118: I have a few spots that aren't completely flat but no big ones! That time of the month came & went with only 2 new pimples coming in & they were just little - came & went within a couple of days. To not break out dramatically at my time of month is complet

    Please someone help

    Hello! I had the same issue in my 3rd month too, my dermatologist told me it was because my body had gotten use to the dosage I was on (40 mg). I am now into my 4th month - going on 1 month at 80 mg and face cleared up again

    4th Month ~ Accutane

    Day 98-106: I feel so much better! Still dry but my face is clearing up! I havent had a new pimple come in, the ones i had from the previous month are fading away. The cluster of 7-8 on my left cheek are almost all flat! 1 of them just started oozing one evening, just watching TV & i felt it! UGH! Of course all kinds of stuff came out...forever.... i really hope i dont have to deal with that ever again! I still have the one on my nose but its not really a pimple or a blackhead...not sure wha
  6. Day 63-97: Wow! 3 months on Accutane already!! I will say that month 3 was the worst for me. Not because of the dryness but because I got several breakouts/cystic acne that just lingered the whole month. They didn't go away until I got another bump in meds with my visit last week to the Derm. Got bumped to 80 mg per day every day & BAM! back to being super intensely dry again. BUT the cluster of cystic acne i got my cheek are now fading away. It was a cluster of 7-8 big ugly ones that agai
  7. Day 34-62 - Finished Month 2 - Dermatologist Appointment 40-80 mg Day 34: The inside of my nose is so much drier! It hasn't bled but its close... more annoying than anything. Nasal spray & Vaseline = life savers. I noticed 2 little pimples last night - one on my forehead & one on my chin. Just little dudes so not even stressin' about them! My jaw line is for sure better! The cystic acne is a lot flatter, a little bumpy but nothing like before. My neck just has the red spots from

    I am going to research coloring your hair - i did ask my hair stylist and she said we could try a test strand. She hasn't had a client on Accutane before... I wanted to do some highlights, may go for more of a Baylage look...

  12. I had acne in junior high/high school but nothing severe, i would get a pimple here or there and it was usually my fault; not washing my face, touching my face with dirty hands, etc. etc. But its when I got put on birth control shot Depo when i was in my late teens/early 20's that's when the cystic acne happened. It was awful. I got those big, ugly, painful ones that would practically ooze if I yawned. I'm embarrassed & ashamed just thinking about it... Queue the doctor (regular doctor), g

  14. Finally going on Accutane (Myorisan) after years of hoping my acne would get better on its own! I am 36 years old female who seriously thought my acne would just get better as time went on, boy was I wrong! I had acne in junior high/high school but nothing severe, i would get a pimple here or there and it was usually my fault; not washing my face, touching my face with dirty hands, etc. etc. But when I got put on birth control shot Depo when i was in my late teens/early 20's that's when th
