I get acne on my cheeks and on my forehead when I eat too much sweets and sugar, and never on my nose or chin. Weird.
After trying a bunch of holistic remedies I lost hope and went to a derm who put me on Solodyn 45 mg. I've been on it since then.
I tried topicals but have been unable to find one that would work without irritating my ultra sensitive skin. I am allergic to BP.
Last month I went to a different derm who prescribed Finacea gel as a topical.
This stuff is fabulous. My pores look invisible, and my skin glows after a month of using it. I still get occasional zit or two but no more clogged pores and uneven and rough skin texture. My skin is so smooth and touchable. The tube says to use it twice per day but I only use it at night.
I am still taking Solodyn but plan on stopping even though I am scared this will make me break out. I think I will wait until after my Birthday to stop the Solodyn.
Highly recommend Finacea for those who are prone to clogged pores and comedones. I am not sure if it works well for inflammatory acne though.
Please wish me luck as I am getting ready to stop Solodyn. Has anyone had any success stopping antibiotic? how are you supposed to do it? wean yourself off of it or stop it cold turkey. Any suggestions appreciated.
Let us stop acne it its tracks!
