I have decided to create a personal log documenting my journey with oratane. I have basically pretty good skin when suddenly I had a bad breakout on my chin and forehead...gosh, it was really bad and I did not get any better. I went to a dermatologist who prescribed me stieva and 6 other items to apply on my face daily.. Religiously applied them when all hell breaks loose when my face became allergic.. I rushed to a GP near my place and was put on oratane.
10MGX2 - morning and night
20MGX2 - morning and night.
3rd week onwards
When I was taking 20MG twice a day, I was feeling unwell..decided to seek a second opinion and my trusted GP suggested I reduce my dose to 20MG per day while he monitor my progress. He commented that 40MG could be too high for me as I am 45kg and my acne is mild/moderate
Now I am taking 20MG per day and just crossed the two months mark. Today is my 61 day. I am upset with the progress so far as the red/brown marks are still so prominent while one angry pimple erupted two days ago.
I kept telling myself to be patient while I let the medicine do the work..but seeing the pimples coming out one by one when the previous eruptions are still on the way to disappear can be super depressing.
I have been reading this forum daily to get encouragement and the strength to carry on!
Feel free to share your journey. I believe we all need the support.
