In Topic: How ya feelin' about your acne today?

22 October 2014 - 06:22 PM

Well it looks like after months of no acne worries Im gradually starting to break out around my menstral cycle again so my derm bumped up my Spiro from 50mg to 75mg so I'm really hoping I don't get another IB :( I'll be staring the 75mg tomorrow.

wow kirks im so sorry to hear your still struggling with cystic break outs!! I truly hope things start looking up for you soon! I know for me it was a battle the whole first 6 months. As of today I have zero acne so there is still hope with the Spiro! I posted 2 or 3 pics of how Spiro has worked on my skin, I don't think I could live without it now but for those 6 months they were hell, l would of never thought I would be at this point when I look back and see how painful and horrible my acne and cysts were. Don't lose hope kirks!!


In Topic: Scared To Try A New Foundation..

Ive been wearing Dermablends Smooth Indulgence Foundation for years, for me it gives great coverage and doesn't break me out, its too bad they discontinued it :(  Now im thinking of trying Estee Lauders Double Wear but after reading reviews on it I am now worried I will break out too!!!!!

I was getting a lot of cysts too, about 5 or 6 at a time that I also had to go get injected :( Tracy is right tho, it will get better its just going to take time. Hang in there kirks! We are here for you!
