accutane journal

ok started accutane and doc started me on 20 mg a day. today i just finished day 10 and my skin is very dry and lips are starting to become really chapped. I use to use those oil blotter sheets and every hour i would need to use them. I used one before i went to bed and didnt really have any oil. My acne is alot worse then when i started and hope this is the initial breakout because it looks bad. does any one have any experiance with having an initial breakout and how long did it last for?

day 14

just finished the first two weeks of accutane on 20mg and my skin seems to be doing worse then when it started. im hoping it the initial breakout period. Before accutane my skin was really oily all the time but now there is barely any oil at all and the blackheads on my nose are starting to come up and dissapear. i can literally scractch them off throughout the day. however my cheeks and jaw line still are getting little white pimples and is kind of making me depressed. hopefully in another two weeks things will start to look better.
