Tazorac And Minocycline Log

11 January 2013 - 05:09 PM

Hello, I am Ryan, and I have moderate but very persistant acne.

I started Tazorac and Minocycline on December 1st, and I am now on... week 6 (?) I believe. I do not know if it was doing nothing until now, but all of a sudden I have broken out with big inflamed white bumps all around my mouth and cheeks, and I have these really painful pustules on my forehead... I guess I am finally getting my initial breakout.

Before this, my skin was actually kind of clear on one side, and very bad on the other side (the side I slept on). I started putting a new t shirt on my pillow ever 2 nights a week ago, so I hope that helps... The other side that was semi-clear was almost smooth to the touch, but it still had a bunch of marks.

My acne does not look terrible from far away, but when you get up close and can see all of the white heads and such, it's not the most beautiful thing in town...

I recently vowed to myself not to pick at my face anymore. Starting a week ago, I noticed that my popped pimples were not healing overnight, and they would just get worse. So I figured that having a white head is a lot better than having a nasty black scab with white puss peaking through.. (ew)

Anyway, I really hope this works in the long run, my skin looks pretty bad, but the fact that I am breaking out a lot more than usual, and with different looking pimples, I have a feeling that it is Tazorac, not just my skin... I hope I am making sense...

By the way, I am a 14 year old Male. I may post pictures later when my skin gets better... or worse. Posted Image
