  1. Ok so I had a pimple and I popped like I normally do, and I wasn't sure if I had gotten everything out so I got a needle and started stabbing it looking for a whitehead and could find anything so I figured I got all of it, but in the process of looking I created a pretty big hole in the pimple with ripped skin and I was really hoping I would start bleeding so that I knew for sure it would heal but it never did, I put vitamin e and Neosporin on it and over night it sealed up but it doesn't look l

    Day 3

    A few pimples came to the surface, but this seems pretty normal since I pretty much always have pimples coming and going 24/7. I'm just hoping this is my skin purging the bad stuff and then it'll start to clear up! I'm still not that dry - I MAY be producing a little less oil? I just don't feel the need to blot my face with a tissue in the bathroom nearly as often and I feel like I don't look as shiny as I used to. I think my lips might be a little dry? Still not a huge difference, I'm just tryi

    I Survived A Friday Night!

    DAY 5: After Wednesdays incident, I stressed out about alcohol for the next two days, its Memorial Weekend, and I was going to be really ticked if I had to spend it without any drinks. I decided to test the waters on tonight, but change the way I conducted taking my medication. I purposely ate dinner early and took my medication, and waited about 3 hours before I went out with friends to celebrate our friends birthday at a brewery (talk about temptation!). I had 1/2 a beer at the brewer
  4. I just started accutane a week ago. I'm 5'3.5 and 120lbs. I was just out and had one beer and came home and took 20mg accutane. I'm aware this is kinda a low dose. Am I good?
  5. I took my first dose of accutane 40mg last night and i went out drinking after. i've read up on the topic and it seems like the general public says to stay away from alcohol while on accutane. it's would be pretty hard for me to quit drinking alcohol so is it ok if i go out and party every once in a while
  6. HI All, looking for advice taking accutane and alcohol?!
  7. During my many years struggling with mild cystic acne and after seeing many different Dermatologists, who put me on many different medications (including Accutane), I discovered that I must be the one to resolve my acne. If I was ever going to manage my acne, I must be proactive and study my skin in order to understand my acne disease process. So I began reading all I could about the skin and what role it plays with the body. Then I systematically examined my skin, trying to figure out what w
  8. First, off, i feel like everytime i drink my face isnt as oily, and it feels better, it also looks better. It seems to dry out pimples and help get rid of them faster. Idk why though. Any of you ever experienced this? Now, I have very mild acne now that im 21, I only get a pimple or two everynow and then but sometimes theyre not that noticeable or bad. What i do have is oily skin on my T-zone, so i get a lot of crap around my nose, chin, and next to the nose areas. What really bothers me are
  9. Im going Bangkok in a few days time and we will be drinking a lot of alcohol hence im worried that i will break out from it. Before Accutane, i actually realised that i break out after drinking alcohol and after masturbation. That sucks a lot since those two are probably some of the most satisfying stuff on earth haha. Masturbation i can control though but alcohol is hard as when i am clubbing or when there is an event, its hard for me not to drink. I also know that alcohol is bad while im on Ac
  10. Hey everyone!!I've had moderate acne for the past 4 years and after endless medications and prescriptions I have built up the courage to go on Accutane! I've read so so many threads and logs and so many people have had great results! For the past 3 months this summer my acne took a turn for the worst after I got bronchitis and had to take a lot of medication (i thought antibiotics would help me??). Anyway, I've been even more depressed than usual and I barely leave the house so I don't pigment m
  11. Hello! We have a celebration called "Russ" in Norway, where we celebrate that we're done in school. "Russ" is about drinking and partying. One problem - I'm on accutane! It will be around 4-6 festivals on 3 weeks. Will it be okay to drink 5-6 beers max 4 days out of 3 weeks? It's not really THAT much, is it? I drank acohol on new years and I threw up after 5 beers. But I barely ate before I drank, so maybe that was the case? What do you guys think? Cheers
  12. Hi guys, I have been on accutane for 15 days now and I haven't had any alcohol because my dermatologist said to avoid it. However, I am a college student and drinking/the bars are a big part of my social life. I don't need to drink a ton/binge but I would like to have a couple beers. Would it be okay to drink a couple beers for one night every week? I know a lot of people who have had alcohol on accutane but I don't want to damage my liver badly.... any thoughts on this subject and if moderat

    Skin Frustration and Vitamin A

    This year, I've become increasingly frustrated with my acne since it has started appearing more frequently in strange places - like my forearms, hands, fingers, and stomach. While in the past I put my acne concerns on the back burner, recent events have made fighting this acne a much higher priority. It's at least somewhat socially acceptable to have acne on the face - or on the back and chest - but not other weird places. It's just scary and frustrating to think that I might not have any c
  14. Do any of you drink alcohol on occasion? I need a "safe" drink for when I go out...what do you usually drink that doesn't break you out the next day? I'm talking about 1-2 glasses, nothing too crazy. I can't have anything that raises my histamines too much, like cider and beer (although heineken seems to be ok for me), and whiskey is a bit risky too. Any ideas for other liquors and cocktails? Apple-flavored smirnoff ice seems to be a good option for me, but I'm not sure how many bars in the US
  15. Has anyone dealt with short term memory loss as a side effect on Spironolactone? I definitely notice it more while drinking (yes, obviously alcohol can do that), but it's way more severe than before I started taking Spironolactone.
  16. Hello! I have been on accutane around 2 weeks now. It's new year tomorrow, and i'm planning to drink. What I was thinking was drinking like 4-6 beers. Is that too much? I think its 4.7% alcohol. My doctor told me that I can drink beer and wine, but NOT liquor. And I asked him how much, and he told me as long as you don't drink two days in a row, you'll probably be fine. And also - will I have a BAD breakout the day after? I'm not that aggresive in my face now like I was some days ag
  17. I've read other threads regarding Accutane and alcohol, but I believe my case is different. On Saturday I will be going to a big party and everyone will be completely throwed. I don't like being the only sober person at these events. I'm currently taking 80 mg a day of Celaris. I would like to consume a foolish amount of alcohol, but I'm also aware of the fatal effects that will follow if I mix these two. So, my question is this: If I skip my dosage on Saturday morning, will my body be clear of
  18. I'm going to Mexico for spring break in about 2.5 weeks. I am currently on my last month of Accutane (40 mg/day). I'll be in the sun a lot, so I'm worried about getting a horrible sunburn. I know it takes about a month for it to completely be out of your system, but if I stop taking it right now will it help reduce my sensitivity to the sun?
  19. I have recently started taking accutane, but have only taken 2 10mg tablets over the last 2 days. I have just realised that I will be at an event in 5 days that will require me to drink alcohol. If i stop now, will i be ok to drink in 5 days, and will it have completely left my system. Will i be safe to continue my prescription afterwards?
  20. Hi guys. I just started Accutane and im going to Bangkok in around 1 month time. Im wondering if i can drink alcohol while on Accutane while in Bangkok. We will be going for around 4-5 days and there is a chance that we will be drinking at least 3 out of 5 of those days as we will mainly be going clubbing. Is it all right if i drink for consecutive days like that? Maybe a maximum of 2 shots or afew glasses of mixes per night? Advice? If i cant drink there is really not much point in going Bangko

    Week 3 Accutane

    I am now on week 3 of 30mg/day roaccutane + 2 prednisolone pills (cba to check spelling, think its right tho). I suffered a 'second' IB around the end of week 2, when my antibiotics but since then its been great. I have one active lesion on my face, which I didn't expect. Before that, after IB settled, I didn't even think about my skin, only occasionally in some lighting. Once this lesion goes it will be much the same. To go from literally constantly looking at my skin, to not caring due to its
  22. Hi everybody. I'm a 17 year old male, and i just started on Accutane 2 weeks ago, or more specifically 16 days. I'm on 60mg/day and for the first week, it seemed to work perfectly. I got super dry as i was warned about, and my back started hurting as well, but i didn't mind this as i saw it as signs of the drug working. Also i got a pretty bad initial breakout but i was okay with that. But then, last weekend, i went out drinking, and drank WAY to much. I didn't throw up, black out, or feel any d
  23. I'm around 80 days into my 6 month course of Accutane, while the spots seem to be calming down, I'm worried about the dryness of the skin. I have quite a few red marks from previous breakouts that will, no doubt, fade with time when I finally stop breaking out. I've been getting severely dry skin that is peeling recently, however the last time I tried to moisturise, I broke out crazily! After using the Cetaphil moisturiser for 3 days, I'd had enough and stopped using it and like magic, spots cal

    Accutane - Day 76, Drinking!

    Okay, so im on day 76 today. Ive been sick for the past few days and went clubbing last night. I feel like shit atm! I had a few beers and shots last night because of freshers week, by the end of the night I was tipsy. I know i shouldnt be drinking but I didnt want to feel left out. My skin became extremely red but didnt breakout. My body now just seems out of place.. Has anyone ever felt like this? I tried googling alcohol and accutane, some say its fine and others say its dangerous. I dont
  25. Hey guys! I was unable to cure my moderate acne with over-the-counter stuff and so I made an appointment with a dermatologist and went there last Monday. He told me to stop using any cosmetics, including moisturisers. Instead, he gave me a prescription: Epiduo and an alcohol made by the pharmacy. It is ethanol (70%), 0.5% erythromycin and 5% glycerine. He told me to use the alcohol to scrub my face in the morning and evening and in the evening also apply Epiduo afterwards. Upon my object
