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 regimen is tea tree oil toner from The Body Shop.
My complete regimen is as follows:
Wash face with Cetaphil antibacterial soap. Use slow circular motions to exfoliate. Then apply tea tree oil toner with cotton round.
Wash face with dial antibacterial soap. Apply thin film of benzaclin.
Wash face with Cetaphil antibacterial bar soap. Apply tea tree oil toner.
Wash face with Cetaphil antibacterial soap. Wait 20 minutes, apply tretinoin. On top of that, apply thin layer of benzaclin and lights out on skin care.
Prognosis: Now that I am taking the reduced dose of amoxicillin exclusively, I have had two pimples over the past two weeks. I guess I'll just have to live with it. My doctor is no longer endorsing my strategy of take no prisoners war on acne. I am broken. I now have to accept getting a few zits now and then. Bury me!
JUSTICE FOR TRAYVON!
