Just thought i'd start this thread in order to record my progress, and a way to reflect my thoughts, what is happening throughout the course! I suffer from pretty bad back acne, my face isn't too bad however I often have one or two spots here and there constantly which is annoying, it's pretty rare that I have a clear face but it doesn't get me down really.
It's my back that does!! I've had it for around 2 years now where nothing else has worked so the doc has put me on 55mg a day! I am now 3 days into my second month, things don't seem to have changed but the derm says this month is where stuff will be noticed.
I'm hoping so, It's such a confidence killer for me, the thought of taking my top off in public makes me want to curl up into a ball haha. I really really love swimming too but feel I can't without the fear of people starting etc.
Luckily I have an amazing girlfriend who understands and is here for me, especially to see me through if I have any mood swings etc !!
I did lots of research into what products to use on my face for the dryness and i'm currently using Cetaphil moisturising cream which works absolute wonders, one tiny tiny small blob lasts me all day and feels amazing.
And for my lips I ordered some DR dans cortibalm from the US which also works amazing. You can't even tell any of my face is dry too which is good.
This is the first day of me taking it so a "before pics" I suppose of both my back and my face so I can see how things change !! I won't embed so they don't show up every time haha
Then this was taken the other day (1 month in), no changes on my back as of yet, my face seems to be a little clearer but my face is abit redder.
Anyway, enough talking from me haha, be good to speak and share experiences with other people on here like
