Day 324

Posted by lb111923, 28 February 2013 · 404 views

i've been using tazorac on my forehead every night for a week now, and have been using it everywhere else every other night for almost a week (the skin on the lower half of my face is much for sensitive). eventually i'll use it every night. no problems so far, except some burning when i first apply it, and some dry skin around my mouth. i don't want to mo...


Day 315

so i went to the derm last week, so told me that SOME (not all) of the bumps on my forehead are sebaceous hyperplasia...which you aren't normally supposed to get until you're in your 40s or 50s. lucky me! they're basically overgrown/damanged sebaceous glands, that form these flesh colored bumps that can't be popped. she put me on tazorac .1 (gel, not crea...

my forehead is so bumpy. i made a derm appointment for tuesday. i've been exfoliating with baking soda...i really like it but i'm definitely getting more clogged pores on my forehead. hoping it's purging because there was def still some stuff in there, but i hate waiting to find out if it's just a bad product or an initial breakout. i've also been trying...

bad skin day. my forehead looks suuuper bumpy. improvement, but not great. i feel like i need to exfoliate more but my skin is so dry. thinking about going back to the derm. this is so frustrating--i feel like i'll spend my entire life trying out different things to make my skin better

quick update: ever since i switched toothpastes/starting taking my spiro with water, i have had probably 4 whiteheads in the last 3 weeks (significantly down). not sure if it's due to those changes or spiro finally taking effect--i've been reading that it can take 6 to 9 months, and i've been on it just about 9 months now. either way i'm...

Day 255

now that my period is over, i haven't had a whitehead around my mouth in a week! part of it i'm sure is hormonal, but i've also started (actually following the instructions on my bottle of spiro) taking each pill with a glass of water. i'm wondering if maybe the water helps the medicine be better absorbed into your system? also, this is...


Day 248

i'm having a good skin day...i can see a clogged pore on my forehead that's been there forever start to surface i think. i wanted to write this down because i'm hopeful about retin-a .1 and i don't want to forget that :)

OF COURSE got another whitehead right in the middle of my cheek. all but one of the others have popped. ughhhhh have to give a presentation today, who doesn't love worrying about their skin while standing and talking in front of people


Day 245

UGHHH so tired of this. these stupid whiteheads around my mouth WILL NOT GO AWAY. they last for a day or so, pop and leave a red mark, then i get another one or two in the EXACT SAME SPOT. literally, the exact same spot. what would even cause that?

i was reading another thread on here about body dysmorphic disorder. while i don't necessarily think...
