A little bit of backstory:
-Had mild acne (pustules, small whiteheads, on the rare occasion cysts) for about five years now.
-My acne seems to have become hormonal
-Oily combination skin (gets weird dry patches, but gets shiny very quickly)
-My pores clog frequently
I've just been prescribed 50 mg of Spiro a day. My dr wanted to start on a lower dose then work up to higher if I need it. I'm hoping this works!!
I have been on antibiotics for the past two years - bad, I know. I'm finally weaning myself off Minocycline since I'm taking Spiro now. I cleanse with La Roche Posay Effaclar and the Clarisonic Mia, I moisturize with CeraVe, and I use Epiduo at night.
So here's to hopefully better skin on Spiro. I've only been on it for two days so no major changes yet. My main goal is to have less oily skin, less clogged pores, and of course, clear skin around my period (which is when I break out).
