Week 3 on Accutane
My Accutane experience so far ...
Week one: acne started to dry up and become scabby; skin slightly itchy
Week two: skin seemed to have gotten slightly worse; more sensitive; becoming flaky; acne drying up some more; much itchier; extremely hard not to pick (as everyone knows, there’s little else more pleasurable in life than picking at scabs – they’re irresistible); extremely hard to refrain from scratching too
Week three: itching has subsided; still hard to prevent self from picking at scabs but am trying very hard; acne drying up at a faster rate; skin still sensitive and very dry
All I can say is ... thank the good lord above for creating the people who invented make-up.
