Hi guys...i just started taking Spiro today at 50 mg once per day as well as 75mg of Solodyn (minoclycline). My doctor literally told me NOTHING about spiro, so i've been doing research on my own today, and i'm a little terrified. I have had acne since i was 14 (i'm 28 now) and have been on everything under the sun except accutane. I have constant small white bumps under the skin, all over my face (but mostly around the cheeks/jawline area), i have blackheads on my nose and i do also get large cyst-like pimples. sometimes they are VERY large and painful, although those are few and far between.
basically my question is, will the solodyn, which is an antibiotic, help with the initial spiro breakouts that i've heard such terrible things about? i am a bridesmaid in my best friend's wedding in just over a month and i'm scared to start spiro it for fear of looking like a hot mess at the wedding. then, in may, i'll be working outside, in the sun, sweating all day as a cocktail server...i'm a little nervous i'm going to have a pizza face and everyone will be able to see it. any suggestions? my self esteem is already just about as low as it gets...so, i don't know how i'll handle a major breakout. help!
