ALLI!! It's been soo long since I've been on here to post anything. I got on here awhile ago and you hadn't posted anything recent, and I haven't check in about a month, and I got on here to check something else and I saw our thread! I miss you a lot and I can't wait for Makin' Music...Mel got me a ticket! I'm really happy for you that your treatment is going really well! I'll talk to you and hopefully see yousoon! Sorry I couldn't come up this past weekend. I really wish I didn't have basketball and could've come..but bball will be over soon and I can come visit ya'll. :bouncing: Love you!!

My 2nd course of Accutane treatment is going EXTREMELY well! Especially compared to my first course of Accutane. During my first course I had acne everywhere and it slowly faded and wasn't completely gone til the end of my 6th month. However, I'm on my 3rd month of my 2nd course of Accutane and I barely have any acne on my face. My back and chest have been 100% clear during this course (the 1st course of Accutane took care of my back and chest completely). Right now I only have one pimple on my face and it is already scabbing over and drying up. I do have some red marks on my cheeks from my 1st treatment of Accutane, and I hope to take care of those marks when my treatment is over. But right now I just use green concealer on those spots and then use Neutrogena liquid makeup to cover up the concealer. I never really understood why they have green concealer. But my friend...Heather..told me that since green is opposite of red on the color scale that the green helps the marks to be less visible.
I anticipated a harder time on my 2nd round of Accutane just because my 1st round was so rough, but it has turned to be way better than i would have ever imagined. My skin is still really dry and my nose is the worst part. It is always dry and bleeds. Not like continuous blood flowing, but it is red after blowing my nose. ugh. I still continue to take Vitamin E with my Accutane and use my humidifier and lather up with lotion. My lips are def. less chapped this time around. They don't peel like they did a year ago. I'm still taking 80 mg a day and I go back to my derm. in about 2 weeks. This iPledge thing is a good idea just so it will help girls not become pregnant while on the med., but I just hope I don't forget to fill out the information and get online for that thing, or else I won't be getting my pills. AHH.
Alright..well I hope that everyone is handling their Accutane treatment well and I'm so excited that I'm more than halfway through my treatment with little to no acne. I can't wait for those facials Al!! Yeay! Good luck to everyone and keep posting!
