So, as many of you know, I have started taking Roaccutane.
I have decided to keep a skin journal and every week or so I will post an update on whats happening, improvements, side effects, even a photo or two…
Dosage: 20mg per day
Skin issues: Cysts on either side of my nose (greatly reduced in the last two days), skin under my mouth is ok, small cyst in my right eyebrow, small cyst in my groin.
Side effects: So far the only side effect is that my skin got ‘worse’ on about day 4 (I wish I had thought to take a photo of day 4, you would not believe the difference between then and now!), I developed three cysts, one on the left of my nose and two on the right side of my nose. Bloody painful but they didnt last as long as usual. They developed heads within two days (usually takes up to a week) and drained yesterday evening. Im still red and sore but not as swollen. P.s. Getting ‘worse’ is par for the course with Roaccutane, they say it takes up to two weeks for the ‘worse’ part to subside…
Improvement: Only that the cysts cleared faster than normal.
