Week Twenty

Day One Hundred and Thirty Four – Monday 15th July 2013

Spot Free Days = 4

I had no dryness and much less redness this morning. My eyes have been irritating me all day today, they sting and are watering a lot. Unfortunately I have run out of eye drops. Note to self – go get some!
ūüôā No Spots!!

Day One Hundred and Thirty Five – Tuesday 16th July 2013

Aaargh, Spot Alert! The consolation, at least, is I’m getting one single spot per week now not the usual major breakout. My lips have felt like they are sun burnt but of course they’re not. The rest of may face is looking good and a nice complexion is making its way through!

Day One Hundred and Thirty Six – Wednesday 17th July 2013

I had to squeeze my spot this morning, it was a large whitehead. I’m feeling ok, still hoping for the end of this experience to come soon and hoping my skin will behave normally post Roaccutane.

Day One Hundred and Thirty Seven – Thursday 18th July 2013
My only target is to ZAP these last few spots!

Day One Hundred and Thirty Eight to One Hundred and Forty – Friday 19th to Sunday 21st July 2013

My face is looking good at the moment and not giving me too much trouble. My last spot still has a scab and is taking its time to heal.
The rest of my skin is irritating me, it is extra fragile and sore. I seem to have grazes, lesions and dried scabs all over my body, where the top layer of skin has come off in patches and is really sore. This is a common side effect and it is especially bad this time around. It has even affected my ear around my earring. I wore my watch all day today and when I took it off there was even a sore scrape underneath. I find the only thing that soothes it is Vaseline.
I am soon coming to the end of 5 months on my Roaccutane experience, which is also the predicted date my dermatologist gave me as an end date. I have not been spot free for a month so we will be extending the treatment. I have made a note in my diary to email him an SOS email (as he called it!) in the beginning of August.
