I can't believe this is the 9th instalment of my Roaccutane Diary!
This week, once again, is exactly the same as it has been for the past 2 months! I'm still carrying around lip balm as my lips are still dry and cracking.
I've been a bit gutted this week that I got a spot, and not just a little spot, a huge white head whopper right in the corner of my mouth which was really painful.
By the time the picture was taken it had gone but it's been really hard to deal with.
Luckily, I've had no new spots this week. If you follow this series you'll know I've had really dry skin on my arms and hands. Well know it's decided to start on my face! Throughout the day, the skin starts to get really flaky around my mouth. At least with my arms I could hide it, but this is really embarrassing as it makes me look unclean! Due to the sensitivity of my skin, I'm not even allowed to be using exfoliators but I'm having to use one once a week around my mouth. The red spot on my forehead is a result of peeling dry skin.
I've just come back from the hospital and I'm nearing the end of my treatment! I've just been reduced from 60mg to 40mg! This week has been the same as last week however, the flakiness isn't happening as much around my mouth now, it's just moving to other parts of my face! As you can see in the picture, I have a lovely red peeling mark on my cheek. My lips have been particularly dry this week and I'm unsure why but as usual my Blistex is coming to my rescue. The dry skin has also slightly flared up on a patch of my right arm, but I can already see it going down as I've been overloading it with my medicated body lotion.
Thanks for reading
