Lymecycline and Co-Cyrpindiol



Month Five

Posted by Kaelivia, 02 July 2013 · 602 views

So...I have been on the Dianette and the Lymecycline for five months now. And my skin is finally clear! I'm still getting the occasional spot or two (mostly when I eat something I shouldn't, or don't drink enough water) but they are usually tiny due to the medication, and go away within a day.  My face has been left covered in red marks, which w...


Month Two!

Well, it's been two months!  I went back to the doctor a week ago, and she couldn't believe the improvement. I wasn't sure that much had changed, but she showed me some pictures she had taken before I started treatment, and wow! There really is a difference! I'm still getting a couple of spots, but they're no where near as bad as they used...

It's been a month! And in the past three days my skin has been a total rollar coaster. It felt like all of the spots on my face decided to pick up and move to my chin. I had twelve inflamed, under the skin nasty spots all on the right side of my chin. There were so many and they were so painful. But after an intensive course of steaming and hot compr...


Day Twenty-Eight

Posted by Kaelivia, 20 March 2013 · 506 views

I've been on the antibiotics for a month now, and in three days it'll have been a month on the Dianette. I'm on my seven day break from the pill at the moment and (fingers crossed) don't seem to have had a flare-up.  So, my skin. It has improved, but it still looks awful. Due to all the red acne marks (which I never used to get) I look like I've...

And I've changed my regime again! Just washing with water doesn't seem to do enough, and the epsom was making my face really red and irritated. It was certainly bringing the infection to the surface of my skin (loads of new whiteheads) but I think it's too harsh to use everyday.  So, seeing as my skin seems to have become intolerant to pretty mu...


Day Twenty-Three

Right, I've changed my regime a bit. Well, a lot, actually. My face was bright red all of the time, more red than I think acne can cause. So I've got rid of the cleanser, and I'm not moisturising either because I'm convinced it breaks me out. Now I'm washing with water in the morning, and soaking my face in water and epsom salt at night.  I've s...


Breakout

Posted by Kaelivia, 13 March 2013 · 272 views

Okay, I thought everything was getting better, but I woke up today to find that I have broken out everywhere. My forehead, my chin, my cheeks...most of them are lots of little white headed pimples, but there are at least four full blown giant spots. I'm trying to reassure myself by saying that this is the initial breakout to either the antibiotics or the...


Day Eighteen

Things are looking up! My skin is a lot smoother, and there are a lot less spots. My forehead and nose are completely clear, my cheeks are covered with red marks and dry flaky ex-spots, but both of these are fading/disappearing. My chin is still the worst area, with three active spots and a lot of marks, dead flaky spots. But it is so much better! And eve...


Feeling Down

Posted by Kaelivia, 07 March 2013 · 377 views

So it's been over two weeks on the lymecycline, and it'll have been two weeks on dianette tomorrow. I'm just feeling down because my acne is still really bad, and I need to go back to university next week. It's one thing to hide away at home and convince yourself that it is getting better, but it is another to face reality. I keep trying to focus on the p...

Okay, so I cracked last night and used some moisturiser. I couldn't help it, my skin was so dry and felt really itchy! Apparently it was also quite red. I used the Simple hydrating light moisturiser, and I was utterly paranoid that I'd either wake up with ridiculously oily face, or tons more spots. But I didn't! In fact, I think it has helped a lot. My sk...
