The first month is definitely rough! New spots show up fast - what feels like overnight. Some heal quickly and others unfortunately are taking about a week; leaving yet another red mark. Trying not to pick or obsess as much as possible. Fortunately was able to get 4 cortisone shots before a wedding this weekend, which definitely helped. Wish I could just get inflamed pimple injected!
As far as side effects, skin is getting very dry and flaky. Started using cetaphil cream. Chapped lips still easily healed with aquaphor or carmex (no cracking or bleeding). Noticed hair is much less oily! Other than that feeling pretty good. Looking forward to moving past this initial breakout!!!
