Smile After one month on Accutane.......

After one month on accutane here is what i have experianced so far. The past 2 days have been bad, i have severe drying around my elbows and back of the neck. (I think the drying is because i have not drank alot of water like the derm said, but now i am drinking close to a gallon a day, which i hope helps.) But i can already see the difference in my face and back, it looks atleast 25% better, i dont know if all people get better in the first month (maybe i will start breaking out ?) I have not had a bloody nose but my bugers have been bloody since the 3rd day on accutane, and i seem to be getting more bugers, guess it is just dried up blood in the nose. Lips and face fell good because i keep them mostirized. Anyways i thought i would post for anyone wanting to know about accutane i guess.

Re: After one month on Accutane.......

also today i have noticed my arm is very dry along with my elbow...... does anyone know if drinking ALOT of water will solve this ? because i can only mostirize it once a day (i go to school) and by the time i get to school it is very dry again..... ?? or do you know of any really good mostirizer that can keep it mostirized for about 8-9 hrs ? thanks in advance for the replies.
