wish i had started this log when i started tazorac .05%..i started 6 weeks ago..around 2 week mark i wanted to quit so bad. i had the worst breakout of cysts i ever had, they just kept popping up. i usually get 1 to 2 cysts at a time, they pop up, i get cortisone shots and usually ill be good for couple of weeks..well there was a 2 week span where i went to the derm 5 times, it was devastating to say the least! well im now 6 weeks in, and i havent gotten a cortisone shot in 3 weeks, that is like a record for me, i cant tell you what a great feeling it is! i have had regular pimples come up, but they go away in couple of days, nothing like the cysts i usually get..i can totally deal with those..a few days ago i got a rather large pimple near the corner of my mouth, if it had been on my cheek i probably wldve gotten a shot, but since it was corner of my mouth you could barely see it if my mouth closed, so i was able to deal..its getting flatter and less by the day, so i'm quite happy...besides that i'm clear, and i dont feel anything coming up either. ( gosh i hope i'm not jinxing myself) this is truly the longest i've gone without a shot in years! so now for the list of other things i am using, its quite the list..but the reason i think its tazorac that is my miracle is bc the other stuff i've been using much longer than the taz..
acanya in the morning
taz at night
i use aveeno ultra calming foaming cleanser
my supplements are..vit d3, probiotics, vitb5 and VP-ZEL tablets which is a prescription vitamin for acne
not sure if other peoples skin cld handle the acanya and taz, its kind of a harsh combo, but my skin tolerates it the most part..i started to use taz every night from the beginning...this is truly the best regimen i have used so far, i pray it keeps working!
