  1. On September 14, 1990 researchers at the U.S. National Institutes of Health performed the first gene therapy procedure on four-year old Ashanti DeSilva You're trying to say that 8 years before this accutane was already at work altering genes in humans?
  2. Just noticed that we'll be starting college around the same time. I'm starting on the 5th of October, I'm a bit nervous naturally being the first time. What are you doing?
  3. I went and got my haircut and also a bloodtest which, I must say left an awfully huge bruise. Here are some updated pics. http://img74.exs.cx/img74/6347/IMG_1405web.jpg http://img89.exs.cx/img89/6751/IMG_1409web.jpg

    On Acne

    A picture journal
  5. How do you actually navigate through the gallery, I can't seem to figure it out.
  6. Swim across to Ireland, I got my Roaccutane the very same day as I went to the dermatologist
  7. 25 tablets taken! I've updated the pics, would appreciate any comments... Well its been pretty much the same as everyone elses. Dry skin/lips awful pains in lower back etc. I've got a lot of red circles on my right side, any ideas on how to remove this? I have got over the initial breakout I hope, I got a cyst (now gone) on my right cheek and a few spots around my mouth but thats it (please god please god). I've been washing my face once in the morning and evening with some "simple" soap just
  8. What are these red marks everyone is talking about?
  9. I'm pretty much on the same day as you Katie and I'm getting excrutiating pains in my back when I lay down and when I try straighten back up after being bent over. It's like a cramp feeling for a second or two then the pain comes along. I find it quite annoying.
  10. I don't see any reason to quit just because you're on accutane. I'm working on a building site for a few months to earn a few bob. I'm outside in the lashing rain, roasting sun, frost and getting completely filthy ( Irish weather ) and I seem to be fine. Sure my lips get really dry and cracked but I just bring around a tub of vaseline. I experienced a few minor pains in my back when I started (9 days ago) but I can't be sure it was the accutane. Yesterday my lips started getting really dry and
  11. I think its been a week or so now, I can't really remember I've been busy. Well I've not much to report. My lips are very painful, I've been applying a layer of vaseline every hour or so but they still sting pretty badly. I have a Summer job working on a building site so I'm exposed to the elements for 13 hours a day which can't be helping much. It has been pretty sunny (for Ireland) so I hope the sun has been doing some bit of good. I heard someone in their log mention Fruit of the Earth Aloe
  12. Day 4 Well I think I've noticed a slight improvement, less redness anyway however it's probably just my eyesight getting worse. I haven't had dry lips yet but they have seemed to get a lot paler. No new spots or anything thanfully.
  13. Well I've done a lot of reading about it like Number1nerd said and I have mixed feelings. Websites like http://www.accutanenews.com and http://www.accutaneaction.com seem to completely hype up every side effect claiming that nearly everyone that has ever been on it has either suffered depression or killed themselves. While others like http://www.acneguide.com just mention the side effects. I've also been reading the prescription section of the forum and nearly everyone thinks it was worth it. I
  14. Well there was another dermatologist there from Mineapolis who said the same thing. They both seemed to think that it was the best possible solution. I got an information booklet about it but it didn't seem half as bad as you make it out to be. I'm going to read up about it some more now, thanks for telling me.
  15. I'm 18 and have had acne for a couple of months now so I decided to do something about it. So I went to visit a dermatologist yesterday and he basicly said to go on roaccutane, it will more than likely clear me and anything else is only a suppressant and my acne would probably come back. Thankfully here getting it was very painless, I actually managed to get it the very same day after seeing him. My face has been pretty normal, not greasy or dry just very red as you can see from the pictures (
