  1. I took my last accutane pill about 2+ years ago. My face cleared up around month 5 and continued to improve even after my treatment. It took a full year after my treatment for the pigmentation to totally clear, I even have deep scaring on my cheeks that have recently turned to nice fleshy (kinda pink) color. I am female and go completely makeup free, COMPLETELY! I know how you feel, it's frustrating, but the pigmentation WILL soften, it just takes time, I promise. The important thing is that yo
  2. Hey guys! Its been well over a year since I took my last accutane pill and a little over a year since I started shedding and... My hair is back at it, Im shedding like a MAD women right now. It's such a strange cycle, I grow hair, stop shedding, then I go back to loosing hair. I have learned to deal with it, it's not too bad. My hair IS thin but its not like Im bald. I use hair clip in extensions to feel the void Im still using the same shampoo and conditioner and no other treatments. Oh, and
  3. Working on month 6 of hair shedding. Hey everyone! Its been over a month since my last post (quoted above). I'm still shedding but it has decreased considerably. I loose about 25 hairs when I shower and maybe about another 25 when brushing and styling. I have LOT'S of re-growth poking out all over my scalp (looks kinda funny). I am able to control my dandruff and itchiness with head and shoulders shampoo. Im still experiencing SOME scalp sensitive especially when I brush out knots or if my hai
  4. Thank you sooo much for your reply. My doctor told me was a type of Pityriasis (a very mild case) he said nothing about a fungus (???) He said it was not known to be contagious so not to worry! I never had such skin disorders only when I was accutane I experienced flushing of the skin and eczema. Now my skin so freaken DRY and itchy. Here some info I found: Looks a lot like what I’m experiencing, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pityriasis_rosea I saw my family doctor and he did not clari
  5. It's been 9 months since I took my last accutane pill. My skin is still SUPER CLEAR but still SUPER DRY!!!!! I get these dry, pink looking, itchy, rash patches on my body. Mostly on the trunk of my body (stomach and lower back) but also near my groin area , it comes and goes. I went to my family doctor and he says it’s a condition called Pityriasis. He couldn’t answer honestly if it was the Accutane that caused it but he said that more often its stress induced and that “unfortunatelyâ€
  6. One more thing! I was also experiencing that weird kinky curly flyaway hair but my hair is defiantly "normalizing". It's starting to look and feel like it did before the madness.

  8. No, I am not experiencing body hair loss , well... no more than usual. My scalp itches, but only a few times throughout the day, not everyday mostly when its dirty. I do have, what feels like, tiny pimples on my scalp that itch but Head & shoulders helps that. No redness. My skin heals just fine. As for scaring... I'm not sure, I haven't noticed an increase in scaring. All the hyperpigmentation I had while on accutane is gone and when I do get the random zit (here and there) it clears
  9. @oli girl- Thank you! I'm thinking about cutting some long layers and maybe some side bangs to give my scalp more volume, it looks so limp
  10. Hey people! I just thought I would update: Method of treatment- Absolutly nothing! It has been 4 1/2 months since the excessive shedding began ( 8 months since I took my last Accutane pill) and I am still shedding. Some days worst than others, at worst 150 a day at best 60-100. Head and shoulders helps the dandruff and itchy scalp. The scalp pain and soreness that I was feeling in the beginning has stopped. My hair looks limp and lifeless. My scalp is not visible but hair is VERY thin. I a
  11. The Dandruff is seriously getting out of hand. I look’s horrible. Junks of scalp everywhere!!!! Does anyone else have this problem? My hair loss has been consistent but kicked up a notch last night, I lost a crap load in the shower! I stopped the steroid solution and oil treatment a month ago. I’m currently doing NOTHING for it, just trying not to think about it. I put my hair up as much as possible and do everything in my power to NOT run my hands through it during the day. I’m not
  12. Nora Ross Garlic shampoo- Anyone ever hear of it? My Aunts swear that it slowed down and eventually stopped their hair shedding.
  13. DANDRUFF!!!! This is insane. What do I do for this???? I have never in my life had dandruff and this pretty bad. I washed my hair last night and woke up this morning with chunks of white flakes in my hair. My hair loss continues. It's only been a little over a month now I fell off the wagon with the steroid solution, after those itchy pimples, I have been hesitant to start using it again but I will.
  14. I was having the same problem a few days ago "itchy pimples" I think it was the steroid solution I was applying at night. Ive stopped using it for few days and I'm not itchy anymore and pimples are going away BUT... there's always something new, NOW I have some pain/soreness at the very top of my head. Tender when I touch. This fucking SUCKS! I'm stilling shedding maybe little less, Im probably down to about 100 hairs a day when I wash it and 65 on all other days. Im getting use to the sheddin
