This post is a bit late and I see that I skipped last week’s post as well. However, better late than never.
My treatment with Isotretinoin is progressing. In the last few weeks I’ve gotten old-people hands as I’ve affectionately referred to them. Effectively this means that my hands are quite dry and get cut pretty easily. In the last few days the easy-cutting has lessened somewhat, but the dryness is just as bad. Tonight when I applied hand cream my hands actually burned for about 10-20 minutes until that feeling finally diminished some.
My face was very flakey but thankfully that isn’t as bad in the past week. I do apply moisturizer though when needed. I can tell that my back is getting better but that it will definitely be the last thing to truly have real results shown.
I feel that I’m more tired than I used to so in my last round of blood work I had a few more tests ran and I’ll be finding out the results tomorrow when I go back to see my dermatologist.
I am taking the opportunity though to try something that I’d normally not be able to try. Typically my oily skin makes me want to have my hair cut short (a number 3 trimmer guard if that means anything to you). However, since I really am not producing oil anymore, I’m taking the opportunity to try to grow my hair out longer. I most likely won’t like it and will want to get rid of it ASAP, but I’d like to see what’s possible. Now, how do I manage my hair while it’s on that journey? I have no clue whatsoever! 🙂
