I know there are tons of these, but I feel as though if I have somewhere that I can go daily to express my feelings about this, it will help me through the horrific breakouts that are sure to come during the first few months of using Accutane. I will spare you the history, its the same as everyone else as far as antibiotics and topicals. I’m a 20 year old Black male. I will have pictures soon. I started on August 4th. I will start with my forth day. Alright here goes:
Today my skin has been really itchy. I don’t know if it’s the medicine or if it’s just because I am thinking about it so much. Since I have started Accutane I have been infatuated with other people’s journals and other Accutane questions. Well like I said my skin is itchy, no peeling, and my lips aren’t dry. My skin doesn’t look any better or worse so I guess right now it’s too early to tell anything. Actually, the left side of my chin is clear, without Accutane, there would MOST DEFINATELY be a boil there by now. But in the past 3 days, nothing has happened there. But its only my 4th day, surely Accutane hasnt kicked in yet. Ahh maybe this is a coincidence. Hell I dont know what to think. What I do know is that I can’t WAIT for a nosebleed. Or some kind of side effect. Seriously. It will assure me that the medicine is working. I’m only on 40mg a day and sometimes I feel like that’s not enough for me.
