Severe Acne & Scars Log With Pictures!

31 January 2014 - 05:54 PM

My acne nearly disappeared last November, but it has come back with a vengeance. A dermatologist said it was due to hormonal changes - currently 18. Within 8-ish months, my face has looked awful. Here's a personal log to record the progress!

September 14, 2013 - Pictures right after cleansing. Not sure if I see any improvements, but I do see less active acne; more scars though. Scheduled a dermatologist appointment in two weeks. Stopped using Ampicillin because I was told it wasn't the right antibiotic.

Severe Acne - Need Help!

14 August 2013 - 12:16 PM

I've had acne since I was 16 (currently 18). My face nearly cleared up beginning in September, but now it's back with a vengeance. I recently just started using Tretinoin/Retin A (3-4 months) and maybe that's causing these initial breakouts? I heard many things such as hormonal acne/late puberty. Any advice on how to better my situation?

 

AM

- CeraVe foaming facial cleanser

- CeraVe moisturizing lotion

- Erythromycin & Benzoyl Peroxide Topical Gel (5% BP, 3% Erythromycin)

- Antibiotic - Ampicillin TR 500 mg

 

PM

- Desert Essence thorougly clean face wash - Tea Tree Oil and Awapuhi

- St. Ives Blemish Control - Apricot Scrub; every other day

- Cetaphil moisturizing cream

- Tretinoin Gel 0.01%

- Antibiotic - Ampicillin TR 500 mg


Retin-A

I've been using Retin-A 0.025% for maybe 1 year and I still get constant/major breakouts. Should I stop using it?
