Well, I'm 18 and I've been suffering with acne since I was 11. Only when I was 13, did I go to the docs to do something about it, which I now regret not doing earlier. Anyway, cut a long story short...
I've been on numerous tablets and gels/creams since I was 13, and until around February 2012, they were slowly clearing up and I was only getting a new spot about twice a month and my face looked pretty clear (sort of).
Anyway, in February - I went to the docs to ask if there were any tablets that would speed up the process a little as I suggested the other tablets may have stopped working as my body may have become resistant to them. Anyway, he put me on these tablets called erythromycin, 4 times a day - along with differin (which I've been on for a while). However, these tablets were okay for the first two days, but then they really started to bring acne out terribly on my:
- Around my nose
- On the top of my mouth
Sorry for the long story. But my main questions are:
- Anyone use differin / erythromycine / limecycline - what where your experiences?
- Did any of them work?
- Did any of them bring them out worse?
- And finally: if you have (or haven't) used the treatments I listed here, how long do you reckon it will take for my acne to start clearing up once again?
I think that's everything
Can't wait to hear your replies!
