It’s skin update time again. I have just finished week 6 of roaccutane (a drug used to treat acne)
I have attached a photo from week 5 and this week to compare the difference.. although my skin was a lot worse the middle of this week than the photo I have taken today!
Week 5 –
This week I broke out, quite a lot. I think this is because I upped my dosage from 40mg to 60mg. I was expecting this to happen. I got 5 or 6 large hard lumps appear on my forehead. I have 2 still lingering. They came up within a day and didn’t budge as easy as others have. I’ve had a few whiteheads come up around my chin and nose area but still no big cysts on my chin like before (touch wood!!!) I’ve still got a few under the skin pimples developing around my nose area but hopefully they will disappear soon!
I’ve had a few new side effects this week:
Very dry hands! – see pic below
Teeth grinding?! Very weird but I my partner said I grind my teeth in my sleep and my jaw hurts 😦 not a fan of this one!
As I write this I can feel another under the skin spot developing and I am not currently happy with the state of my skin. But i just have to trust the process and pray I start to see improvements soon!
