Hi...I am at the end of week three...this is what I am using...
-Cetaphil cleanser in the am and pm
-Cetaphil facial moisturizer after washing (NEVER had to use moisturizer b4 accutane)...this stuff is great cuz it does not leave my face feeling greasy.
-I am spot treating with Queen Helenes Mint Julep mask. I know it's a big NO NO but...I am in the initial outbreak and although it's not so bad, I am compelled to do something.
-I am taking Vitamin E daily because I want to continue to wear contacts and learned on this board that it helps. It must be working 'cuz I have no problems so far.
I have gone through tons of things to try and rid myself of acne....minocycline,tetracycline,differi n,retin-A...and the list goes on.
My acne went out of controll when I went off the pill at 28 and finally found a derm who suggested accutane.
I am pleased so far....my initial outbreak is not too bad and other than dry lips I really don't have any bad side effects to date.
