  1. i'm 18 years old and I've had relatively clear skin for most my teen years, with only a few pimples here and there. But about 2 months ago I started breaking out randomly. The last month it got bad and the last week it got even worse. The right side of my face is full of red marks and acne where as my left is generally more clearer but has a number of marks and some scarring. I am probably to blame for some of this as i popped quite a few pimples. I know i shouldnt but thats honestly how i got t
  2. Happy Friday!! I just wanted the check in and I promise this will be brief. I finished three weeks yesterday and am quickly approaching the end of my first month. Acne is pretty consistent now. Nothing too bad or unsightly but it has been SUPER itchy where new ones have popped up. Facial peeling seems to have gotten a little worse so I've started putting on the Cetaphil lotion at night before I go to bed and in the morning before I go out. It does seem to help so far. Skin in ge

    Pardon the weird open mouthed photo but I wanted you to be able to see where the corners of my mouth are cracking and peeling. But NOT bleeding so far, thank god (knock on wood).
  4. From the album: Accutane (Zenatane) Journey

    Day 22! Pretty consistent now. Just a little itchy around new acne.
  5. SO! I am now 5 weeks in and let me tell you: going from 40mg to 80mg is actually a BIG change. I am twice as dried out, peeling twice as much, and twice as sad. I started my 80mg dose (40mg 2x a day with food) on Oct. 3 which was 30 days in. Almost immediately, I was peeling much more and a lot faster. My face is consistently peeling, even with tons of moisturizer now and whereas it was just my chin and around my mouth before, my forehead has joined the party. My lips are continuing to dry ou
  6. Hi guys, So, like a lot of people on this website, I'm starting Accutane and want to share my journey with y'all. Mostly because I came to this website with questions and actually found answers. So, I figured I'd add to the pot of information. The more the merrier, right? I am an 18 y.o. female who has struggled with acne my whole life. I had large black heads in elementary school which then turned in to cystic bumps and whiteheads in middle school. I can actually recall always having th
  7. From the album: Accutane (Zenatane) Journey

    You can see my acne is kinda getting worse again around. I didn't get my forehead in this but I have about 4 cystic heads that then turned into white heads and now just scab over and over again. I would definitely call this the initial break out of my higher dosage.
  8. -sorry for the long post!- *disclaimer: I'm aware others have it much worse! It's just really disheartening and concerning as it's out of nowhere and continuing to get worse & worse * All throughout high school, I was fairly lucky when it came to my skin. I have quite dry skin, but neither of my parents ever had acne, so my skin was extremely clear with the occasional cystic blemish starting when I was 16. I am now 18 and started getting quite few cystic breakouts on my cheeks while I was
  9. Greetings fellow acne haters! So I have completed ONE MONTH on Zenatane (accutane)!!!! Gonna talk about two things today. 1) this past week and 2) my dermatologist visit. 1) This past week: My skin is still persisting in the dryness department. My forearms and legs are suffering the most and I'm still seeing the white, flaking circles/patches everywhere. I spent Monday working while on my knees a lot and when I got home that day, I noticed that there was piece of skin that was dried out
  10. Hello everyone... I'm in need of help. A year ago I had nice skin... it wasn't perfect as I had dark marks on my cheeks due to acne and also tiny holes on my right temple, but that didn't really bother me... However when 2016 was about to end I sadly lost a loved one and that made me super depressed... I became a shut in, I couldn't sleep, I ate too much and the like... I was able to get on my feet by early march 2017 and I noticed that my pores became larger.... I became very self conscious abo

    This is the most affected area of my face. You can see where my lips have been cracking and bleeding as well as where my acne has centralized and how it is peeling.

    One month down! Woohoo! Picture just for reference
