Antibiotics!

Posted by leanna123, 10 October 2013 · 108 views

I decided, momentarily, to take a mere 1,500mg of amoxicillin daily as prescribed. Huge mistake! I broke out all over. It was traumatic. Thank god I had an extra refill of cephalexin. I took almost a whole 90 pills of amoxicillin in the past 7 days but I am finally all clear again. I contacted my dermatologist and asked her if she would increase my dose s...

Complexion Still Smooth/scars Fading

Posted by leanna123, 15 September 2013 · 145 views

I have suffered from cystic acne for 20 years. Sadly, it has been only the past three years that it has been properly treated by a dermatologist. As a result of years of avoiding antibiotics; fearing they would harm me in some way (ridiculous). Long story even longer...I have finally settled into a regimen that keeps my skin clear. Tretinoin, Amoxicillin,...


On The Right Road...

Posted by leanna123, 07 September 2013 · 389 views

OK, I am year two with having clear skin. I will add pics later but right now I have benzaclin on my face so it has a white film and you can't really see my skin. When I wash my face again and apply tea tree oil toner I will take new pics and edit my post to add the photos. Anyway, I hope someone will be inspired by my regimen because I seriously had majo...

Turns out it was CEPHALEXIN!!!MY DOCTOR DID IT!!! SHE ORDERED ME CEPHALEXIN!!! Which means that I will be able to recklessly consume massive amounts of antibio...


Resignation

Posted by leanna123, 13 July 2013 · 424 views

To get everybody up to speed, I have been taking extremely high doses of amoxicillin and cephalexin. Up to 6,500 mg a day. I had clear perfect skin for two years. Finally, last week, my dermatologist failed to renew my prescription for cephalexin. Because of that, I can only take the prescribed dose of 1500mg per day of only amoxicillin. Also new to my re...


Notes On Tea Tree Oil Toner And Reduction In Use Of Tretinoin

Posted by leanna123, 11 July 2013 · 521 views

It has been a week. I have reduced my applications of tretinoin from 2 to 1. In the morning I wash my face with cetaphil antibacterial bar soap for dry sensitive skin. Next, I apply the tea tree oil toner with two fresh cotton pads. One for the left side of my face and one for the right side of my face. Results: I now have smaller pores. My face...

My antibiotic binge is officially over. I am seriously for the first time, in two and half years, taking my amoxicillin only as prescribed. 3x a day. I am also not getting cephalexin anymore. My derm reigned me in. *snort*My new pics which used to be "after pics" are now officially the new "before pics". My regimen has been changed drastically. I can no l...
