    2. HI I just read your blog. I too suffer from folliculitis, and it sucks!!! I am at the point where I have no more inflammed bumps, but have no answer of what happened to me. The doctors are so aloof agbout it all!! I am on 40 mg of accutane. And now my eyes are red and burn, and I keep getting Styes. ugh!!! But I need to check into that green cream for sure when I am done. So, you never took acctutane on a regular basis?? thanks for your input, Kristen
    3. hey thanks for your comment on my photo... i was wondering what foundation/make-up you use while on acctune with dry skin? good luck with your skin x

      1. good luck, I don't know about the scarring though. Maybe it is just the timing and the condition. My scars suck, but I think it was so severe that it started scarring before the tane. see ya

      3. hi, I was using bare minerals and liked it for a while, BUT then I started seeing all the fine lines etc. and it doesn't cover well, as I need coverage now.

Love it!!!!! Good luck;) And if it doesn't work for you return it. be blessed

They are painful get huge and burst and leave holes in my face, and they leak uggggghhhhh!!!! I was just wondering if anyone else started with more of boils than hard acne like pimples. And is it the same thing as cysts???? I am just feeling a little discouraged today, and need some encouragement! Please let m
      5. hey there~ I was reading your diary. I suppose I should start one. I am on day 11 of the Tane. I feel good, but I have a little cold too, and felt a weird ache in my back.

      6. 31, well I am 35 and just start Accutane. it is my only hope too! And this past Dec. I had the worst break out in my life. It was just awful. And I still have big bumps under the skin. I walked around with a scarf wrapped around my head for weeks, until it was warmer:( Anyway, I understand your frustration and I am on day 11. I am good and seeing things change. I am using cetaphil cleanser, but so far the moisturizer is too greasy. I also use Neutrogena sensitive skin products. I am sure this
