I'm two and a half weeks into my racutane treatment. I am 17 years old and have had severe acne for two years. So far the effects racutane has had on myself is very dry lips, dry skin patches on my face and neck and very sore legs after playing football. Acne makes my life miserable and I have no confidence as a result of it. Think my life would change a lot with clear skin that's why I'm prepared to go through the horrible side effects of racutane.
