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!!!!!

Yes some dermatologists  are very stubborn about prescribing meds. I had a derm who wouldn't give me anything but topicals so I had to change doctors. I have a good dermatologist now but unfortunately I might have to change since our insurance is going to make us pay $80 co pay  and we are only paying $40 now. Im afraid the next derm wont even give me Spiro and ill be back to square one again.
