Week 5 - Progress!

Posted by Mels23, in Ery-Tab 22 August 2015 · 68 views

While my skin doesn't look like it's getting all that better, I can feel it noticeably smoother!
I've got only about 8 small active pimples on my face (excluding all the subsurface bumps on my neck. They just won't go away) and a few that are healing and thus a little crusty. Still lots of hyperpigmentation and scarring, but overall I think we're heading...

Week 4 - Still Trucking On

Posted by Mels23, in Ery-Tab 17 August 2015 · 47 views
tazorac, benzamycin
Last week I developed a pimple on the corner of my mouth, and when it scabbed over holy crap it was absolutely painful to eat or talk!! A few days later it got better, but then another appeared on the other corner! Luckily this one didn't cause nearly as painful an experience. But wow it was the worst!
Last week I had about five or six bumps on my forehea...

Little Rant

Posted by Mels23, in Ery-Tab 02 August 2015 · 100 views

2 weeks since starting Ery-Tab, Benzamycin, and Tazorac. After my skin started getting really red I eased up on the topicals, using them only every other day. I have noticed my skin isn't as red, so that's great. Still breaking out badly though. I've developed a few painful bumps on my jawline. Yesterday as I finished up washing my face I noticed I was bl...

One Week Done

Posted by Mels23, in Ery-Tab 25 July 2015 · 94 views

One week since I started taking Ery-Tab and using Tazorac & Benzamycin. Skin is looking the same in terms of acne production. I've got some pimples on my cheeks, a couple on my forehead, and some cysts along my jawline. I could say I've developed a lot of whiteheads and some papules on my nose too, instead of the usual blackheads. A noticeable change...

Over Ziana

Posted by Mels23, in Ziana 15 July 2015 · 88 views

I finally saw a dermatologist for the first time in 2 months. It's a clinic I haven't been to before, but making an appointment there meant being seen 3 weeks earlier than if I had made one at my usual place (but the drive there SUCKS..) So, this derm seemed a lot more thorough than my usual PA. She had this little app where she took all her notes and had...

Acne On My Neck Getting Worse

Posted by Mels23, in Ziana 09 July 2015 · 110 views

I've been noticing quite a bit of acne popping up on my neck lately. I'm looking at my progression photos and that acne started popping up around June 20th, and has gotten worse since last week. They're basically forming all over where I apply the majority of my skincare and makeup products, so I'm wondering if something I'm using is causing this.
So, all...

Week 10 - Stressing

Posted by Mels23, in Ziana 28 June 2015 · 138 views

I've finished 10 weeks of Ziana, and unfortunately, absolutely NOTHING has changed. I'm still going to use it until I've done 4 months, but the fact that I haven't seen any changes at all is really disappointing. At the moment I'm having a bad breakout since I just started my period, but honestly it's not all that different than what I normally experience...

Week 8

Posted by Mels23, in Ziana 15 June 2015 · 113 views

Just finished up week 8 of Ziana. Can't say I've seen any improvements to my skin. I really want to consult my derm to see about starting birth control but unfortunately I've had to keep rescheduling my appt., and so as of now it's not until next month.
Looking at my forehead right now I see 1 large papule and 2 pustules.The impacted pores that I said wer...

Week 7

Posted by Mels23, in Ziana 30 May 2015 · 151 views

A week ago I bought some vanilla almond milk (sugar free) and have been using that instead of regular milk (just ran out last night so I'm going to have to go out and buy some more!) I also just yesterday started taking some Vitamin D-3 capsules (2000 IU). I'm no nutritionist so if this doesn't sound perfectly safe for some reason feel free to let me know...

Week 6 - Breakouts All Over My Chin

Posted by Mels23, in Ziana 23 May 2015 · 152 views

Normally when I breakout, I breakout all over my jaw, around my cheekbones, and quite a bit around my mouth. But for the past 2 weeks, I'd say 60% of my breakouts are on my chin/around my mouth. To add, my lips have been feeling really dry lately. I still get acne all over my face (the impacted pores on my forehead are starting to settled down though) but...
