  1. Hi everyone. Just joined this website earlier and this is my first blog/conversation. I am 21 years old and have had acne since the age of about 14. At the start of February I was prescribed Accutane and I first started taking the drug on February 6th 2016, so that will be 16 weeks on the drug tomorrow (about 4 months). Bottom line.. MY SKIN IS STILL BAD AND IM STILL BREAKING OUT, my derm is calling then 'pustuals'. Now don't get me wrong my skin is getting better in certain areas (forehead and

    One Week

    It has been one week since i started taking the 10 mg pills twice a day, so 20 mg. There hasnt been many changes yet, but i have had stomach pains twice, but I took paracetomol and they went away. The ores around my nose have become very visible and large, and Ive been getting tiny little bumps around my chin and forehead where i dont usually get them. Havent experienced any dryness in the lips and skin, although I feel more thirsty. I hope my skin will start to clear up soon.

    Day 49!

    So my skin is starting to flake more and my face feels tight as if its about to start peeling. I just had a breakout a few days ago but it is going away now as my skin is getting drier and drier. I know I keep saying I think results are soon but Id say in another month or so ill be basically acne free. My lips have still been dry but I have been exfoliating them daily and I am using my Olay Pro-x once a day as I find it can be irritating if done twice a day. My forehead is 100% clear of blemi
  4. Hey there, I went to my dermatology appointment today at Harley Street Dermatology Clinic. Very fancy I know! Anyway, my doctor was really great and she answered all my questions. I am still very unsure of the link between digestive system and skin but that is another blog for another day. So, she said I am doing all the right things using non-comedogenic moisturisers and cleansers (Cetaphil) and said to stay away from anything that could potentially irritate the skin so that includes any sc

    Going private - Accutane

    A Bit About My Acne: I started getting mild acne at the age of 13; as I got older I started getting under the skin cysts and my acne became more moderate. I’m 20 now and my acne severity has lessened with the help of the pill and creams, although my skin is still not where I would like it to be. My First Dermatology Appointment: After a bad break out last month I begged my Doctor to refer me to a dermatologist. The waiting list in my area to see a dermatologist is 8 months, so I ended up

    Day 41!

    So im like really starting to clear up now. My skin is flaky and my lips are peeling and its gross because my friend actually said something about it to me. I use lots of lip balm too. I use a stereroid lip balm 3-4 times a week as directed by my dermatologist. It only seems to help when its actually on my lips. I only have a few very small zits on my face. There are alot of red marks though and they will take time to heal. I use the Olay Pro-X cleansing brush and I think it works better t

    Just Began Accutane

    Hello all. I have just began taking Accutane (yesterday actually) and have found this site very helpful for advice and preparing myself for what is to come. A little bit about myself: female 23 years old acne began around 18 years old type of acne: moderate (and quite persistent) with occasional deep cysts have tried just about every antibiotic, cream, and wash available The plan is to update here throughout the treatment. For the time being, any past or present Accutane users have any tips or

    First 7 weeks

    Week 1-3: So I started out like a lot of other people thinking that I could apply Epiduo twice a day and get quicker results and boy was I wrong. My face burned so badly and itched like crazy these first few weeks. I experienced TERRIBLE peeling and flaking which was highlighted by make up. But there was no way in HELL I was going out in public without make up to at least cover the redness. So after about a week and a half of applying the cream twice a day I went down to just at night and I was

    Day 11!

    So my breakouts seem to be diminishing. My skin has gotten drier but with my daily moisturizer I am flake free. I have noticed my eyes are getting dry and my legs hurt whenever I bend down on them. This never happened before accutane. My skin is still getting oily. I hope things get better soon. I am still using all the same products that I was using before.

    Sebrem Mr (Minocycline)

    I was put on this tablet by my GP after a particularly bad breakout over August this year. I haven't much to say other than I was thoroughly disappointed. Pros: None. Cons: Did not clear spots. Made breakouts even worse. Recommend? No. This tablet made me breakout badly with cystic acne and worsened the already existing acne! Although I stuck to it for weeks in hope of improvement, there was none. I would definitely not recommend this.

    4Th Week Update

    I've been struggling with acne since I was in middle school and now that I'm 18 I'm more than tired of dealing with my skin. I've gone to a dermatologist many times and my current one has prescribed me aczone and tretinoin along with changing my birth control from Orsythia to Sprintec. I had already tried Tretinoin in the past with no success, but we thought I would try it again as a last ditch effort before accutane. The first few weeks my skin has gone from having mild/moderate acne (black hea

    Day 59!

    So I just had a really bad breakout on the right side of my face but I think its from a new product. My skin is still really dry and other than this break out my skin is really starting to clear up. I wish I had more to update but unfortunately I dont. I have to go to the dermatologist Friday and I hope everything checks out okay. Ill update you guys soon but I meant theres really nothing to share cause I think this is gonna take some time. Haha. If only you took it for a week and your ac
