did you just get acne from the st ives or did you get the skin colored bumps that we're talking about? if the skin colored bumps, do you still have those?
I made the same mistake 5 years ago and had the exact same reaction. Still get moderate acne but not as severe as during the time I was on that st ivies stuff
my initial reaction was a complete cystic acne breakout. Cannot remember if I got skin coloured bumps from it but I get them occasionally nowadays. They're the worst cause I dunno what is underneath them and they take the most time to go away (3-5 months?) At least pimples there be a time u can squeeze and pop them out.
I was prescribed minocycline and have enough repeats for 3-5 months so I plan on taking it till I run out. I know for a fact that my acne is triggered by oily food so my game plan is to get back to my clear state and continue to avoid the food that triggers my acne even till after I'm completely clear.
