I had my third dermatology appointment today! The only problem with that was that I don't go back to university until next Tuesday, so I'm still at home... but my dermatologist is in my university town. So, of course, I had to make the drive over to see him. It's only a 2.5 hour drive one way so it wasn't terribly bad.
I only heard good things. I really haven't been having problems with the medication besides that eczema on my arms, which is gone now. On the flipside, though, I'm still at the stage where I'm questioning if the medication is working
So he upped my dosage to 80 mg a day, along with changing the generic brang from claravis to somethings starting with an A... I don't think this should have any effect? I'm definitely nervous. I feel like this will cause my skin to continue purging everything, whereas if I stayed at 60, my skin would have more time to heal. I'm trusting him though, and I'm confident after this month things will start getting much better on 80! I've heard the 3rd month is near the top of the hill, having beared the first two months with little changes... I just have to go through one more month of it! After living with acne for a few years, I can do one more month. I'm expecting big things in months four and five, and then making everything "perfect" on month six! I can dream, yes?
Only optimism brothas!
