Day22 and I could not be happier! My severe breakout the has been with me since the end of August is gone! Unfortunatly red marks are a horrible reminder, but to have some smooth skin back is a blessing I can not fully express. MY skin is still breaking out a little, but considering it is the week before my period, I am not to concerned. Plus, my breakouts seem to go away a lot quick with the Accutane. As far as side effect I have been really lucky. Mild dry lips(I believe this is because i am using BAG BALM)and pain in my right foot. The pain comes and goes and really does not bother me much, still I will talk to my doctor about it next week. Also, my nose gets a bit dry and when it does I just stick some Bag Balm up there(sorry about the mental picture). Of course my skin is a bit dry as well (and makes wearing makeup a challenge)I am confident it would not be so dry if i stopped using topical stuff (shame on me, I am stopping). I know all experiences are different, but I am truly happy with my results so far-good luck to all and would love to hear other updates.
