Allo, I just finished day 32 on the Regimen, and things are going fairly smooth. No cysts, just smaller pimples that may be deep rooted, but don't even come to a head anymore! Pretty cray huh? But, I still get red when I put too much BP on in the daytime, especially if I sweat badly afterwards at the gym. The moisture, in turn, reactivates some of the BP, causing me to go lobster mode.
As of now I'm using only about a 1/2 pump of BP during the day, and a little over a pump at night. Also, I'm still using a topical clindamycin at night. Supplements are 50mg of zinc daily, multivitamin, cod liver oil 3x, and fish oil 3x daily. I also take a probiotic and digestive enzyme if I'm having a heavy meal.
On a side note, I'm pretty glad to be off of oral antibiotics altogether as well, as I hated the feeling of potentially chitting your pants at any given moment. For those who don't know, I was on doxycycline for a total of about 1 1/2 years, before I did a short-lived trial of accutane.
Anyway, I just ordered a new set of big moisturizer and cleanser from the store. Although it was painful to shell out the cash, if you think about it, the price is fairly reasonable. Not much else going on other than slow but steady improvement, classes, and partying on the weekends. My basketball league starts soon, as well as the snowboard bus I'm on, which is really sweet. But, for now, I just have to be patient.
Until next time.
