My Face Is Scaring Me
Posted by Liam Foster, 28 November 2012 · 572 views
My acne has hit an all time low. I don't know what has triggered these chain of events, but in the past week or so, my face has exploded. I stopped taking doxy a few weeks back and my face has been getting worse ever since. But doxy wasnt improving my condition either so what gives!? It's actually making me scared to look into the mirror. My right cheek which has been clear for so long has exploded with huge acne everywhere! And my forehead has also gotten really really bad. Im not just talking small whiteheads, im talking about huge cystic red pimples, all coinciding with each other and all spreading viciously. What is scaring me is that i wont be able to start accutane until i get home which is in like 3 weeks time, so my acne will just keep on getting worse and worse until then. Is it getting worse because i stopped taking doxy? I really dont know. It hasnt been this bad for a long time. Its like i have boils everywhere on my face, they are so big and red its unreal. The stupid thing is, my back and chest are clear as hell!! So why just my face!? Im also wondering if its the facewash im using. I am using clean and clear foaming facewash for a month now with no improvements. Or could it be the acne cream i use, which is skinoren 20% azelaic acid cream. I really dont know, but im so scared because its getting worse every day and i cant seem to stop it.
