It's day 73 now (2 months and 12 days).
The last couple of weeks haven't been great. I have been breaking out a little bit. I don't know whether it is new acne or Epiduo still pushing something out of my skin. Maybe it's due to the fact that I took a week of in the beginning of september.
I hope things take a turn to the better soon and i'll be able to see some consistent improvement. Although I keep telling myself, that I shouldn't judge my skin until the 3 month mark, I'm still impatient and not quite happy with the improvement so far. Primary it's because the improvement that I have seen isn't consistent.
Two weeks ago I was so happy with my skin, but now i'm not. It's funny how things can change so fast.
I read somewhere on this forum, that you could end up having 15 months worth of pimples in 3 months when you're using a retinoid (worst case scenario). It haven't been that bad for me, but I had hoped to have seen more consistent improvement by now.
Right now i have 2-3 pimples. 2 on my left cheek and one on my right side chin (this one is a pimple which has been lurking for months).
I got a new prescription for tetracycline, but it doesn't seem to be effective right now. Maybe the bacteria developed a tolerance.
I hope your skin gets better soon as well. We need some consistent improvement )
My forehead isn't a problem at all. That's where I can see whether the antibiotics are working or not. Hehe.
