  2. Wow so how long have you had the vein thing? Please let us know when it finally goes away but you've only been off like a week so it may take a bit. Does it get worse as time goes on while on accutane?
  3. I just remember before starting accutane reading on here some girls experience and she said her veins were popping out and she looked like the incredible hulk. i was SO afraid last night that, that was going to happen to me. they werent popping just dark looking. i was like f.. did my blood turn black or something??? but they dont look bad today. im going to tell doc about it next visit on 2/6. blueberries aren't in season but when they are i eat like a pint a day. i should get some frozen ones
  4. Ok i just last night before bed washing my face looking in mirror, I noticed my veins in my chest face etc. are showing, is it that the blood is darker blue or my skin all over is thinner? i usually have thick skin u cant see veins through. i have to go to spin class right now so i'm going to wait for responses to take my pills... why is this happening and if it happened to you are you off accutane and has it gone away!? it is saturday morning and derm isnt open til monday. i dont want to pani

Before bed I put some persa-gel 10 on the huge ones and this morning, I had to pop a bunch of them. not that these were pop-able but it definately it helped. i know yr not supposed to pop but THEY HURT SO MUCH its just so much pressure my f'n face was SWOLLEN i couldnt open my mouth i looked like i got punched and my lip is still looking a bit deformed just not as swollen. I think the IB has to be why some people kill themselves. i was SO SO sad yesterday and i ha

  10. im tired and i just want to be able to upload my gross new pictures to the gallery and maybe its the accutane but i really can not find where the f to upload pictures on this site. i also can't find where to change my password. this has got to be the most user unfriendly site i've ever used. thats all.
  11. This is day 6 for me. im on 60 a day to start.

I'm not sick. look at their list and how they rate it, they also
  12. i havent scrubbed my face i wont at all. im just using cetaphil to wash which is so weird for me because im used to always using something that burns and "feels like its working" or a scrub so cetaphil is like putting thick water on my face. it doesnt feel like it does anything. In the morning i take the sotret with my thyroid pill and 5htp and fish oil, i also take phentermine a few times a week and ortho lo but i take that at 12:30am. my dr. said he was giving me less than what i should have
