15th day on 40mg
Took a cortisone shot on my cyst on the cheek. It grew so huge and painful. Now it is smaller, but still visible.
No new actives. (Actually throughout this whole 15 days, I didn't have any new actives, most of it are just whatever whitehead/bump that has been there and got inflamed) I guess, they have to purge out in order to go away right.
One whitehead came back on this same spot. It is scabbed because itchy hands decided to pick at it. ( now it is inflamed. Arghhhh
Right jaw update: 4 dried up (1 of it is all scabby and super dry, gotta put more cream on that one)
1 just became a head and almost all the gunk out. I hope that's the last of my outbreak on my right jaw.
The whitehead that became inflamed and I picked on it on my left cheek became a scab. The dried skin came off revealing a hard little bump from the whitehead. Not going to pick on again. Leaving it to dry out on its own.
So other than the deep cyst on my cheek, we're ok. (I hope)
I guess this is the see-saw period, where two days of good skin, another few days of recovering from an inflamed whitehead.
But I noticed this two black spots on my forehead, looks like a tiny scab, not sure where I got that from. Or could it be black head? I rarely get blackheads though.
Another thing, my nose which has been clear for 15 days are filled with whiteheads again, the sides especially. But they don't bother me that much, other than the fact that I SEE IT and they make my nose rough.
Gets tiring, but I am still hoping for the best.
I hope this is not the start of an IB
Meeting my derm again on next monday, I'm not sure what he will do with my dosage.
