Day 10: Burns So Good?

I almost forgot to write about my progress today, mostly because nothing exciting happened.  However, I do have some things to report.

My face is still really sensitive.  Ow.  But, the BP is still clearing it up!  All of my whiteheads are now just red marks, which I much prefer.  I didn't pop them, so hopefully they don't stay long!  I've heard things about BP causing hyperpigmentation, but we'll see!

When I use the moisturizer it burns my skin pretty badly, but I won't do anything about it until I see if the jojoba oil calms it down.  It's not unbearable, but it definitely hurts.  However, it does calm down the redness in my skin if I reapply another pump of it after a few hours.

All is good! Just hanging in there for now. :)




I use BP too but mine is in the form of benzaclin. It has clindamycin mixed into it. My skin got really dry and I had a burning sensation when I first started it but over time it exfoliated my dry skin when I wash my face with my fingertips. I can't live without it now! I also use amoxicillin and tretinoin. I have only like two pimples per month. I don't touch them and they heal away quickly.

Wow, nice!  What was your experience with tretinoin like?  How long have you been on it/when did you see results?  I've tried it for a couple of months at a time in the past but found it was too irritating to my skin in conjunction with BP in the morning, which is what my old dermatologist recommended.
