Day/Pill #7
Claravis 40mg/once a day

Wow, is this a powerful drug.. Scary if I think about it for too long..
I think I may be one of those people who will get that wind-burned, flushed look. The last two mornings in the shower, my hands have turned beet RED. The hot water triggers it to come on. I also found that the body brush I normally use, hurts like heck. It feels like scrubbing a sunburn, only I'm not red. For about two hours afterward, my face looked flushed. :-(.

Coincidently, I noticed my face began to feel dry after I started using the new cleanser, (even tho it feels good while I'm washing). It felt even drier and warmer today. I'm sure it's the drug kicking in, but I'm going back to Cetaphil for a day or two, to see if I can calm it down. Still have no face peeling, but it feels like it could any day. No lip peeling either.

I have a couple of spots on my face that feel like a pimple (or cyst) may be on it's way, but I don't see anything as of yet, so no new acne today.

I found Aquaphor lip balm in tiny purse size tubes which will come in handy.

My body seems okay moisture-wise right now.

So, I'm finding that the name of this game is to keep my face calm and moisturized. I'm so used to thinking "will this product break me out" or "keep me from breaking out". I need to re-program my brain.

I've been fighting a cold/sinus inf for about 2 weeks. It hasn't gotten better, so I had to start some antibiotics (Bactrim) today, which sort of bummed me out. The Accutane literature says it's not smart to mix the two, but I need to kick this thing. I asked the doc, the pharmacist, (and of course, Google), and unless I'm a rare case, I think with alot of water, I'll be okay.
