  1. Hey everyone. So I haven't been on the boards in almost 2 years, back when I started Accutane. That is because I was clearer than ever and happy for about a year. Then in August of 2009, exactly one year after my Accutane course had ended, I had orthognatic (jaw) surgery and my skin freaked out. Apparently my body didn't react well to the anesthesia because in the months following surgery my hair fell out in clumps and I went back to having moderate-severe acne. My skin is much better than it wa
  2. Unfortunately, I tried Spironolactone twice. It did nothing for my skin. I'm pretty sure I have tried everything available on the US market at this point. Or at least that's how I feel.

  4. Hey everyone! Well, after tubes and tubes of aquaphor, I'm now on day 103 and my skin seems to be doing really well. Especially my chest. (see my gallery!) My face has cleared up pretty well but I still have a few red spots and random breakouts. Luckily I have found that I don't scar too easily. Even though my lips are embarassingly dry and bleed almost daily, I don't mind it as long as my skin is worth it in the end I think that shouild be in about 2 months? maybe more. I go to see the derm n
  5. I'm on day 93 and a few weeks ago my skin was looking really good and I had hoped it would stay that way, but I'm still breaking out! It has stopped me from going to the beach, calling friends, and enjoying my summer! Is it normal to still be breaking out at this point? Should I call my derm? Also, I have pictures in my gallery if you want to check them out. I'm going to add new ones next monday
  6. Day 71 Well, I am awake on a Sunday and its not even 10 o'clock yet. How strange! hah Anyways my face is really clear today. Still lots of red spots but only 2 or 3 active spots that are really small anyway. Back and Chest are still clear as well, but my arms weren't doing so well. They would be, but I took a walk outside and only had sunscreen on my face, so red spots that I couldn't see before are way redder than the skin around it. Wear sunscreen people! I also just noticed a few days ago th
  7. Well, I started getting acne when I was 9 years old. I remember because I had these 3 nasty zits on my face and some other girl pointed them out to everyone and said how gross they were. I have since had terrible self esteem. I'm 16 now. Its something that I keep as hidden from everyone else as much as I can. All my friends and the people at school see me as perky and preppy but they have no idea that I sleep almost constanly, refuse to go out without makeup, and go through periods of extreme d
  8. Day 64 Wow, time really flys! I can't belive its already day 64 for me Well, good news first, My back and chest are almost completely clear of active spots (only 1 on my back a few days ago!) I have a lot of scarring on my back and red spots, but its definatly coming along! I've been wearing V-neck shirts without shame! haha My face isn't doing quite as well. I'm still breaking out and there are a TON of red spots there. Some days I go to school and I just feel sooo ugly I cant stand it. Th
  9. Day 24 Well, my lips have never been so dry in my life! I've tried slathering on everything, vaseline, blisetex, aquafor, nothing keeps them moisturized! They get peely and its really embarassing. Its pretty frustrating. though my mom thinks my complexion is clearing up. No more of those nasty cysts-just a bunch of little bumps along my jaw line. Also, my forehead feels really smooth Florida in 3 days I bought SPF 30 for my body and 35 for my face. I want to get a bit of a tan but I have no i
