  1. Today was Day 20 on Spiro (75 mg), Benzoyl Peroxide face wash (PanOxyl 4%), and Atralin gel, aka topical retinoid (0.05%)! Overall, things are improving My face is doing so, so much better. The pink mark on my left cheek from that stubborn zit is fading and healing. There's a small pink mark on my right cheek that's fading. And there's a bit of a red mark healing on my lower chin/jaw from a pore that purged an acne seed yesterday. Right now, my complexion looks so much better! It's mor
  2. Hey everyone! So I'm doing pretty good right now (knock on wood. knock on wood. knock on wood). Summary of weeks 1,2, and almost week 3: Week 1 - Drying out. Skin shedding its top layer. Starting to get small bumps/ more zits. Week 2 - INITIAL BREAKOUT. Happened to forehead first, then in different sections of my face. Broke out on forehead, nose, chin, then right cheek, then left cheek, then chin again a bit, then right jawline, now left jawline a bit. Tons of small bumps, more zits, a

    So, I'm totally getting some of the initial breakout. I've spent the week battling it and it is starting to heal. I got my chin covered, several spots on my forehead including a massive one that won't go white (and is only starting to deflate now) For the good news: my back is starting to get better. I'm still covered in black heads and got a lot of redness to heal but I have 80% less actual pimples. My chest is totally clear, and I could wear a top I love for the first time in a year. My che
  4. So, yeah. I'm 11days in. I guess I'm getting some of the initial breakout, but it isn't so bad: pimples on my T-zone that showed up yesterday, but they have already mostly deflated today and are manageable. I put ice on the inflamed ones immediately to reduce, and then a little tea tree oil, but they definitely reduced faster than they would have before accutane. Also I'm not too worried because except for the T-zone my skin is awesome, and I have whole parts of my face where I didn't put any
  5. When I said my skin was the worst it has been in years, it's worse now. The cheek that wasn't as bad has started up. I have a massive thing in between my eyebrows and one on the side of my forehead. There is nothing to do but carry on.

    Day 5

    So last night while I was working (5 HOURS LATER THAN I WAS SUPPOSED TO) I got anxious and annoyed so I picked at my face, horrible I know but I won't anymore. There were just so many pop-able ones. Anyways, oddly enough my face looks better today kinda and I've had a bunch of little baby pimples pop up on my checks, nose, and chin. No dryness yet other than potentially inside my nose. Also, my mouth tastes a little weird/different right when I wake up. I wonder if that is related to accutane.

    Day 9

    So, I don't know if it is my initial breakout or if it is because I haven't been on my antibiotic for a couple of weeks now, but my skin is crazy broken out! Everyday I have sooo many whiteheads all over my chin and above my upper lip! Crazy! (and quite stressful) BUT I guess this is what happens before things get better. Only time will tell! How's everyone else out there doing on there Accutane journey?!
  8. so it's been awhile since I've been on here. And I gave up doxy because in the long run it become ineffective so I wanted something more long term. So I have started Diane 35 and I have been on it for 11.5 weeks and if say it's gotten substantially worse... I have read that 3 months is the magic number so it a week or two i will be at the 3 Rd month mark so I'm hoping things start to improve. I'm assuming my acne is hormonal because I'm almost 18 and I had only gotten my period twice in my li

    End Of Week 2

    So earlier this week I posted a half way post mid-week 2...still not sure if I was experiencing the initial breakout, or not, since most of the reviews I've read don't mention it until week 3...which I'm just about to embark on! Upped my dosage to 40mg today and will keep it so for another month before seeing my derm for a blood test and update on the treatment. I have switched my moisturiser to 'simple everyday moisture' as it's a little less oily and I don't think that the accutane ha
  10. Do you remember that course on Mario Kart called "Wario Stadium" where all throughout the track, you were faced with massive bumps to ride over? Well that's my face. Not only are there bumps everywhere, but if they were just the slightest bit bigger, I swear a car actually could drive over them. So week two on Oratane/Roaccutane. Probably one of the hardest weeks with my skin I've had to face in a long time. I'm guessing week three with be much of the same. In my last post, I asked whether p
  11. I've been on accutane for just over a month now. I'm on my fifth week right now. My face is much worse than it has ever been and seems to be getting even worse by the day. I had mild ish acne before. I thought it was pretty bad but I am also somewhat critical of myself. It was definitely affecting my every day life. I started to get huge breakouts on my back and chest and that's when I decided I needed to do accutane. Anyway, I'm 18-girl-125lbs on 40mg twice a day five months. When I started my
  12. Month one of Yasmin my skin got pretty clear (but that may have been due to the tetralysal which I've been taking for 3 months now) However, now I'm nearing the end of the second pack and have been breaking out since about the second week of pack two.... Is this normal? If so how long does the initial breakout usually take to end?
  13. I am 23 and started taking beyaz birth control 3 1/2 months ago to try to help acne. I had an awful initial breakout the first few months. I still find my acne worse than starting beyaz but not as bad as the initial breakout. Do I need to give this medication more time and wait it out? Or should I give up and take something else? So frustrated and have tried many remedies for years.
  14. Hey everybody, I've been on Clindamycin Phosphate 1%, Minocycline 80mg 1x Day, and BP Fash Wash 5% for a week now (all in the morning). So far, the only things I've noticed is that my face is much more red, and I've had an initial breakout. My chin and jawline just has multiple whiteheads compared to the 1 or two it had prior to the medication, and my forehead is still with small, bumpy pink acne spots. Is it common to experience an initial breakout with these products? PS: I take V
  15. Hey everyone, i made a blog but i thought just making a question in a forum would be easier. Here my blog (From start to week 2) WEEK 3 (21 Days) I am still getting new spots more or less everyday or every second day so i guess im still going through the initial breakout, hopefully this will stop at week 5 or sooner because it is my birthday (woo) then and it would be great if it did. At the start i was drinking a lot of milk and other dairy products to try and get the "high fat"
  16. Hey guys, I've had acne for 9 years. I started breaking out on my forehead when I was 10 years old, and I was always picked on, and even bullied, because of my skin. In middle school, my acne spread to my cheeks, chin, and temples. In high school, it became severe and inflammatory (I was 14-15 at that time) and it covered 80% of my face except the jawline. When I was 17-18, the acne transformed itself into tiny little bumps that covered every inch of my face. I took Accutane for 3 months (da
  17. does colon cleansing break you out initially? i mean does it give a detox or whatever breakout its called? any initial worsening of acne?
  18. Just finished my second pack of Yasmin and am in the break week, however my forehead has suddenly become really rough feeling and I've noticed small bumps all over it (although only visible in certain lighting) Some of them have turned into whiteheads, others have been there for a few weeks now and don't seem to be disappearing... wondered if anyone else has experienced this and if it's just an initial breakout and will subside? The fact that the bumps seem more like clogged pores than actua
  19. Have a week until I start month four of Yasmin and am still breaking out ): My skin is maybe slightly less oily, however I haven't seen much change in it. Month one my skin felt really smooth (am also taking Tetralysal and started that a month before Yasmin, so may have been due to that kicking in?), month two I had a lot of small skin coloured bumps on my forehead which I never usually get, and month 3 I've started to get quite a few whiteheads. However, my cheeks which are always clear have s
  20. I am currently on 20mg Accutane for Back acne, my face has always been clear but my back has very deep painful cystic acne...however I have now been getting a few small spots on my face too. Has anyone else experience an IB on their face even if they had clear facial skin before starting treatment (didnt take accutane for facial acne) Any comments will be helpful. Thank you
  21. Hi! Anyone here using the combination of epiduo and tetralysal? (300 mg x 2 a day) my acne is hormonal, since quitting the bc I've gotten mild to moderate acne. my main problem is clogged pores! They are everywhere! And I squeeze them out everytime because I can't stand them on my face. I also have regular pimples and sometimes cysts. so far I've been on tetralysal for two weeks, I started epiduo a little over a week ago. i haven't seen any improvements yet. My face is worse if anything.
  22. I have been using Adapalene (aka Differin) .1 gel for about 2 and a half weeks and the initial breakout is terrible!! Pustules and a lot of cysts on my chin! How long does the initial breakout tend to last? And from personal experience, does anyone have any advice on how to lessen the initial breakout? Did you use any other products on your face such as benzoyl peroxide or anything? Thanks
  23. My Accutane Log! Hello and welcome to my Accutane log! I am 5'9" and weigh 135 lbs and am female. I have had moderate acne since I was 13. My acne is not exactly cystic, but is rash-like--spreading over certain parts of my face and stubbornly staying for long periods of time. I would also say that I had plenty of closed comedones, which are incredibly frustrating because they give your skin a rough, bumpy look that is especially embarrassing in the sunlight. Not too mention the ugly, swollen pr
  24. I'm on my 15th week of retina-a 0.05 and what was once hundreds of small under the skin bumps on my forehead are now around 50 under the skin bumps, so thats ok. But the biggest problem is that i am randomly breaking out in big red pimples. Where i get about 7 in a row, which disappear after 2 weeks and then come back later. Should i still be purging? I never used to break out in inflamed, large bumps before, when should i call it quits?
