    Accutane Day 5

    I am on Day 5 of accutane, and so far no big breakout. However, I had just stopped doxycycline before taking it, so I think there is some residual effect from that.

    Anyway, so far so good. I'm only on 20 mg, so I am wondering if it's not strong enough!! I'm 115 lbs and 5'8.

    I feel some discomfort with my contacts, but carry eye drops with me which do the trick. I have not had severely dry lips, but I have been applying chapstick religiously. I also apply lotion to my entire body multiple times a day. I have had a few small pimples, but they have dried up rather quickly. The pores on my nose seem a little big.

    My stomach has been a little upset, but not too much.

    Beyond that, I feel good! I went hiking yesterday and wore 3 layers of sunscreen. The path was very well shaded, so there wasn't much sun. No problems with the sun, so that was nice. This is day 5. My teaching starts in 4.5 week! Yikes! I am worried my skin will break out before I go back and not clear up! I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
