Hi everybody ,
I have had acne since I was 14 years old. Now I am 22 and I can tell that I kind of have it under control, mainly thanks to bcp . I dont get inflamed acne anymore, but I have lots and lots of blackheads and flesh colored bumps under my skin and also a lot of hyperpigmentation and scars from old acne. I started using Locacid (0.05 tretinoin cream gel) 3 weeks ago. I didnt experience initial breakout yet and I can tell that the texture of my skin has improved, but I still have a lot of blackeads and hyperpigmentation and scars. I know that tretinoin can help to fade these but it is going to take a long time. I hope that tretinoin will help me achieve my goals and I will have clear skin eventually. I also have problems with picking and that is one of the reasons I am making this log, because with my weekly updates I want to update also on my picking problem and if I picked at my skin that week or not. I hope this helps me during my treatement and any recommendations are appreciated (if somebody is actually reading this ).
