5 Months Bactrim, Start Tane Tomorrow

Posted by JDW, 13 December 2012 · 323 views

So I've been on Bactrim for 5 months and just over a week, and I'm close to done with it as i start Tane tomorrow. I say close to done as i will be finishing off what pills I have left and take accutane at the same time, derm approved and even recommended to help with the possible IB.

In short Bactrim didn't really work for me, though this last...

Chose Tane

Posted by JDW, 08 November 2012 · 416 views

For now atleast, because I wont start my course until the start of December at the earliest. I have to get a couple of wisdom teeth removed at the end of the month and the derm recommended i wait until my gums heal before i start.

So I'm still not 100% convinced on tane, as previously mentioned my acne is no where near severe, sometimes its even mild...

Derm Visit: Bactrim Continuation Or Accutane, My Choice.

Posted by JDW, 23 October 2012 · 437 views

So had a derm visit to check my progress on Bactrim. As of today I've been on Bactrim for 4 months and in short: there’s been improvement in my skin overall but still had some bad weeks during those four months when I felt it was doing nothing at all.

Thoughts on Bactrim:
Underwhelming for the 'best' of the antibiotics and last step...

11 Week Bactrim Update

Posted by JDW, 18 September 2012 · 564 views
I'll keep this reasonably short as there isnt much to report.

From the last update the oral thrush is gone, maybe a slight case has come back but there are no real symptons to confirm.

My skin is doing slighly better but after 11 weeks on this you'd expect results. Theres good days and bad days but overall the improvement is slight. Forehead...

New Bactrim Side Effect

Posted by JDW, 21 August 2012 · 548 views

So I wrote an update a couple of weeks ago and said how I'd only had one side effect from taking Bactrim (stomach issues), well at the time my mouth and throat we're a little sore and I thought nothing of it. Since then it had been getting worse, a few days after I wrote the update my tongue especially started to annoy me, felt like I had burnt it,...

One Month On Bactrim Update

Posted by JDW, 05 August 2012 · 847 views
So I've been on Bactrim for a month and if i had to give a one word summary it would be 'underwhelming'.

That being said I havnt been on the full dose as prescibed for the whole month because i started slowly, just in case I had an allergy to Bactrim, by taking half a pill for a couple of days then a full pill for about a week before moving to...

Derm Visit: Bactrim, Experiments End: B5, Nofap.

bactrim, antibiotic, nofap
So I had my derm visit today, first time ever going to a derm for my acne. After the niceties and my background info he flat out said that as an adult, lol, i had two choices, antibiotics or accutane. A pretty big part of me wanted to take the tane but as you may have guessed from the title I'm going the antibiotic route, he also pushed them as a last...

Posted by JDW, 19 June 2012 · 564 views

This wont be too long as im on my phone. Also excuse the spelling and likely mistakes.

I cut dairy completely 3 months ago, i would usually have 250mls(a glass) of milk a day with my oats and the odd piece of cheese. During the three months that i cut dairy i dont think i ate any at all, i made sure there wasnt dairy in any of the sauces, toppings etc of...

35 Days

Posted by JDW, 30 May 2012 · 362 views

So in 35 days I see the dermatologist, if I'd booked when I'd enquired last entry it would be a couple weeks earlier... Since my last entry I had a good patch of about a week where i didnt break out on my jaw, especially on my problem area, and felt i was clearing up a bit however over the last week I've gotten a couple on my jaw, including a...

I Dont Think Acv Is Doing Anything.

Posted by JDW, 16 May 2012 · 544 views
So I've been taking ACV for atleast the last 6 months. During this period my skin has been good, average and bad. I drink 2 tablespoons with roughly 400mls of water twice a day, usually around dinner then a couple of hours before bed. I dont drink Braggs (Though i did try braggs for the space of a couple of weeks at the end of last year and had a little...
