Anyway, the spot from my last blog unfortunately stuck round for a few more days before going down. Just as it started to go down I got two more spots - one below my lip and one on my right cheek. They didn't last too long, but did leave red marks. At present, I've got three red marks spread over my face. It doesn't sound much, but when I look in the mirror I find that the red marks cause a real distraction. I can't help but zoom my eyes over them. I don't know what other people think when they see me, but they must notice them. I have other tiny little blemishes which don't bother me, but these three red marks just make me feel very down. They'll be gone in a couple of weeks, but it was pretty bad getting three spots in a week. Just more proof that my skin is slowly declining. I can't see how I'm ever going to be as consistenly clear as I was last year. The Duac/Differin combination isn't going to suddenly improve - it must be a resistance issue to the clindamycin in the Duac. What else can I do though? Changing my regimen is only going to make matters worse. The only thing I haven't really tried is minocycline and that has the following problems:
- Only able to go on it for a set period e.g. 6 months - assuming it helped, things would get worse when I came off it.
- I'd have to have it combination with Differin and I tried differin in combination with oral antibiotics a couple of times during 2004/05 and my skin was just awful.

The red mark under my eye is now completely gone. I guess it's entire lifetime from birth to death was 3 weeks. The red mark below my lips is still there, but fading more and more. The one on my cheekbone is still the most visible one. Not sure when that will go.
Got a bit of razor rash today to make things look a little worse, but that usually clears up in a day or two. Still not that happy though. Maybe in a weeks time, I'll feel a little better.

Was just at the hairdressers when I thought I saw a huge spot underneath my eye. Got home and had a proper look and it appears to be just a big red mark - no swelling, no pain and completely flat with a normal texture. Bit weird, but hopefully it'll go down soon. I've had a little allergy/eczema reaction come up on my wrist, so maybe I need to take some antihistamine. Hopefully, it will shrink overnight.

Anyway, the spot thing from under my eye disappeared without any hassle. Sadly, I got a little spot on my left cheek. It took a few days to get a head on it and I popped it this morning. It's dying now and not reforming, but it's a bit ugly. Also had a spot come up in the crease of my chin on Tuesday. Not too noticeable, but still painful. I think it may be going down now. Also got a weird bit of pain to the side of my nose - no bump or redness, but a sharp pain. It was there yesterday and still today. Fingers crossed it will die overnight. I feel a little bit scabby at the moment, but it's not too bad.
