To Acne with no love > Skin Care Change

Posted 27 May 2015

So I had a visit with my dermatologist today at month 5 and I broke down.  I felt pretty stupid expressing my frustrations but as always, she told me not to lose Hope (God bless that woman).  She agreed that the dryness I was experiencing was dermatitis (a form of eczema) and that we needed to step back.  She gave me samples of an anti inflammatory (Elide...

Left side near mouth has 1 huge inflamed pimple that has developed a white top, popped on its own and developed another white top (it's practically pulsing and red)

Below that and surrounding it are smaller red pimples that started as clogs and have gotten bigger...
