Birth control got rid of my acne > Six Months On The Pill

Posted 29 March 2014

Last year, my acne was awful. I was on oral and topical antibiotics and Tazorac, which did nothing but burn the shit out of my skin.and the tetracycline oral antibiotics gave me stomach issues. I also went on a no-dairy diet which actually helped a little. (I still avoid dairy). Despite all this, I STILL had acne. During the summer, I started looking into...

Tazorac + Monodox Acne Diary > It's Been A While

Posted 07 April 2013

So I was on the Tazorac for about 6 months until a couple of weeks ago when I got a HORRIBLE sunburn.

Posted 18 November 2012

As I said in my previous entry, I have not been recording my progress for the past couple weeks. Sandy is a bitch.....I'll talk about that in another entry. Anyway, week 3 brought some painful acne.
