Well..I'm sure I'll be sorry I posted this, bc it's always a jinx..but here it goes....My skin is clear!!

I haven't had any kind of pimple for a week, its unbelievable.

It's so bizarre I started to feel a big difference in my skin last week, it just felt different..less oily..its like it happened overnight.

I've been on 125mg for 12 days.  I'm guessing that's why the sudden change, but who knows.  Maybe it just took 7 1/2 months for spiro to finally kick in.  I am definitely staying on 125 tho.  A couple of months ago I had tried 125 and had side effects.  This time around no side effects...Yayyy!

I'm going to kick myself in the butt for posting this if I start breaking out again!  But jeez I do feel like I am having that miracle moment..Keeping fingers crossed!

William,

 

Tysm for being so helpful, I truly appreciate it!  Yes I think for at least today I am going to leave my skin alone.  It really looks like a very bad sunburn on my nose and side of my nose..The rest of my face is blotchy..i have patches of places that are less red than others, it just looks bad. 

 

Well lesson learned..must use aha w moisturizer..even though it might take me a long while to be brave enough to use it again..

Yeah, I'm so mad at myself for being so aggressive with it.  I just figured that I've been using bp that my face wld be fine.  I always thought my face to be tough and that it would handle it.  Holy moly was I wrong!

 

Now I'm just in a dilemma what to put on my face.  I get so scared about not putting some kind of topical on it.  I don't want to irritate my skin further though.  I have just plain clindamycin gel without bp and am thinking about putting that on.  Or maybe just give my skin a total break from everything for a day.  I don't know..sigh.

 

Of course today is the day I have to go out in public..that's just my luck..

 

Well any suggestions on how I should care for my face with this redness would be much appreciated!!

 

I truly can't believe how red it is!

I think I used like a pump and rubbed into my entire face.  My nose and cheeks are burned.  The rest of my face is blotchy red.  I'm so upset, it looks horrible and its scaring me to death!

 

I'm also wondering how I should treat this, I'm scared to put anything on my face.
