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

04 June 2013 - 06:20 PM

I had a break out on Sunday night. Now it is early on Wednesday morning and it's still on-going. I have roughly 8 raised large red bumps in a horse shoe shape on the right side of my neck, spreading up onto my jawline, and 6 equally sized ones on the back of my neck and hairline, including two right next to each other which are  so close together that I already feel them merging togther into one, huge, red bundle of hate.

 

When my skin is bad, I change completely as a person. I can't help it.. it just overpowers me. My entire demeanor changes and I feel myself becoming more withdrawn from everything and everyone around me. I spend all day longing to be alone - back in my house, with the doors closed and no one around me.

 

It's tough.

Tea Tree as a toner at 5% diluted with water had a positive effect on my milia, depite never doing anything good for my acne. It turned them pinkish, and slightly scabbish for a day then went away.

 

Careful not to apply too strong or too often though, I made this mistake and spent the best part of the week walking round with what looked like two huge red bruises on my cheek bones.


In Topic: Panoxyl 2.5% And 5% Aquagel Discontinued

This is the only product that works for me. I use a finger length amount of gel twice a day, so a full tube only usually lasts me just over a week - so stock piling as much as i can before it's completely unavailable doesn't seem like a sensible approach, so the search begins for something else.

I'm reluctantly going to try Aquagel 4%, and Quinoderm 5%. I will report my findings here.
