  1. Welp, after around 4 years of being off of Accutane, my acne has returned. Not as bad as it was in my junior year of high school, but I'm getting more and more painful nodular cysts on my back and neck. I'm currently 21, a junior in college. I've decided to go back on Accutane, hopefully for the last time. My dermatologist has started me off on a dose of 80mg/day of Absorica. That equates to about 1mg/kg per day. I weigh 175 lbs. give or take. As of the time of this post, it has been 10 days
  2. I wanted to start sharing my journey with accutane so far after reading so many posts. They have really helped. After years of having moderate to severe acne and trying everything in the books other than accutane I decided to finally go for it. I had heard so many negative side effects and the risks involved that I had always avoided it. But after hitting a brick wall with treatments that werent going anywhere I had enough. So I set up an appointment with my Derm. August 1st 2013 is a day that

    From the album: Accutane (Zenatane) Journey

    So, based on the picture I posted yesterday, you can 100% see that my acne is getting worse more along my cheeks and forehead now though there are some heads popping up along the very bottom of my chin and jawline. Pictures on the Left are of the peeling (both of my face and lips) on a daily basis even after a good mask worth of moisturizing lotion. Pictures on the Right are of my face AFTER washing it with my Neutrogena Gentle Face Wash, exfoliating with just a towel while the skin is still

    From the album: Accutane (Zenatane) Journey

    So... who knew ingrown toenails were a side effect of accutane?? Not me!! This is a cleaned up picture of it. Before, it had scabbed over and the top was crusty but the part closes to my skin was still soft, meaning that it was, at that time, open or had recently been open. ANY IDEAS ON HOW TO FIX THIS... please? It hurts
  6. My entire face has a red tint to it except around the eyes. I noticed it a couple weeks ago, and it kind of looks like a mild sunburn. I know that accutane makes your skin extremely sensitive to light, but even if I don't go outside for a few days (summer=sleep all the time) it remains the same. I mean my skin's almost completely clear, but this redness is putting a damper on my results. What gives? By the way, I'm on 80mg a day.

    Picture for reference. Going into my 3rd month and have been off of the meds for 6 days now due to pharmacy issues. Face has kinda calmed down and you can see my chest getting kinda bumpy but not red. That line of cystic/ pustular acne on the right side of chin has been with me for a WHILE now - can't remember how long but it's been at least a month if not the whole process.
  8. Hi everyone! Today is my first day on Accutane and I decided to read some logs on here to sort of give me hope. Well, it scared me more than anything. I would like to know what products you ex or current Accutane users are using to reduce common side-effects. I've heard about chapped lips so I got myself a repairing lip-balm. I've read that some users get nosebleeds and that is something I've never experienced before and I don't want to experience it so is it safe to use a nasal spray for dr

    Face is finally improving along with my neck. Got some small blemishes here and there but thank god it's clearing up! Still have 4 or 5 cystic heads but at least they don't hurt and they're not red anymore.

    Picture for reference. Going into my 3rd month and have been off of the meds for 6 days now due to pharmacy issues. Neck has calmed down since the last time y'all saw it. It's not so much cystic heads as it is red or white pustular heads. Isn't too painful unless I pick at it. They're all pretty poppable but come back really fast.

  13. Went to the Dermatologist 17 days ago but I was waiting to see how my face would be after receiving several steroid shots in my face! WTF! Those pesky ones on my left cheek just wouldn’t go away and the Derm suggested steroid shots to help them heal. I got 3 or 4 injections…and a couple of them did sting. Took almost a full week and those pesky ones finally went away! I feel a lot better and look a lot better! Also wanted to wait to post to see what would happen when that time of the mont

    Day 71 - 10 weeks in

    Greetings ladies and gentlemen, So, it’s been yet another week but it’s been pretty easy I guess. I was off of my accutane for 6 days. Why? Well I guess my insurance covers accutane but only under the name of “zenatane” so every time my derm writes the prescription for “accutane”, my insurance doesn't allow my pharmacy to fill it and phone calls have to be made and it takes forever. So, it was not filled until the night of my last day to pick it up when I was completely unavailable so calls to

    Day 98 - 14 weeks

    So it's been yet another week! If you're keeping up with my journey then you'll know that I recently went back to my 80mg a day. So far, it's worked fabulously. My skin has cleared up from my acne that I had before. There is still some there but not... a whole lot. My neck has majorly improved. I have some pictures in my album that aren't uploading at this exact moment but keep an eye out! Unfortunately, the paronychia has also returned. I've been trying to take my 2, 40mg pills as fa

    Here is a picture of my accutane rash from a couple of days ago when it was at its worst. I didn't get any pictures of my arms but I did take this one. The rash is red, raised, bumpy, and scaly. The very tops of it are slightly yellow and it hurts when disturbed. Water and then air hurt like a mother and the pressure of putting on lotion is not worth the pain that it causes.
  18. Hello to all, I have started this log based upon my current accutane regimen, which to be honest im not entirely sure im ready for. But here it goes anyways . My name is Jason and I am a 29 year old male who was recently just put on accutane again. Now let me give you a little bit of a run down of my history. When i was probably around 15-16 years of age, I had severe cystic/nodule acne on my face, back, and chest area. After trying numerous remedies or possible solutions the doctor finall
  19. Hi my name is Andrew and I started accutane in October. I was given 40mg once a day prescribed by my doctor for 2 months. The first few weeks of the second month my skin completely changed and I was becoming so clear, I was very happy. I am currently on my 3rd month right now because I had some break to get my wisdom teeth out. Anyways I'm about half way through 3rd month and this time my doctor prescribed me 80mg when I was a little hesitant because I wanted to try 60mg first. He said no I thin
  20. Hello I have been on 60mg of accutane per day for the first 2 and a half months. I was just upped to 80mg of accutane a day starting my third month. I have some acne still and red spots, when can i expect the best results? Also will i broke out like crazy when I first started, can I expect another breakout now that I am on 80mg compared to 60mg? Thanks!
  21. I'm still suffering from "bad chin skin". I get these lumps that don't build a head and just stay angry and red for ages. This is all concentrated on my jawline and chin as you can see from the pictures I'm over 3 months in I would have thought that this nonsense would be over by now! I'm still on 40mg, and my next appointment with the derm isn't until the 28th. So I decided to call up and see if I could increase to 60mg as I was still having breakout. My derm told me that this wasn't p

    So - like I've talked about out in my blog, I've been getting really bad ingrown nails. Typing this out right now is actually a real pain in the butt. You can see one nail already ingrown and possibly getting infected while the other one is just starting out.The process has gone: dried out corners of my fingers -> continued dryness and then peeling -> new skin is delicate enough to allow my nail to dig in -> inflammation and pain -> mild infection. Trying to keep it clean and relieve

    So that rash keeps reforming and reforming and reforming. If any part of my arms or hands are pressed or rubbed against, this rash pops up. So, resting my arm on the center console of my car = big no no. Red rash for a few hours which then turns slightly yellow/brown and starts to become scaley.
