Thank you for your post Nicoleblk9 :)

 

Honestly I think we just have to stick with the regimen until 8 or 12 weeks to see significant results. That's what I hope. 

 

It's hard to tell whether the regimen is working or not. My acne breakouts now don't seem to be as severe as before. The pimples are smallere and less inflamed compared to before Epiduo. 

 

I hope things clear up in a month or so smile.png

 

My derm told me to take 2x500m tetracycline for 45 days. Is that enough? According to him it would be enough and after that I should keep using Epiduo.

It's been over a month now. No big improvement yet. I still break out a bit. I hope things clear up soon. 

 

Besides that I've been prescribed tetracycline 500mg twice a day and i've been on that for the last 14 days.

Hey Caitlinx

 

Thanks for your thoughts. Things are okay. I had a laser surgery this friday, because I have a genetic skin disease which produces same small red marks on my skin. Right now I can't use Epiduo on those places because of the wounds. While having the laser surgery I told the dermatologist (a world famous one), that my disease didn't bother me that much, but acne did and he therefore prescribed me some antibiotics to take for 6 weeks twice a day to kill the bacteria. 

Besides that I should just keep using Epiduo.

Day 21

 

A couple of new pimples. I didn't expect to be clear by now anyway. I hope my skin is still pushing the bad stuff out.

Day 19

 

Things are going great so far. Only a few active pimples left and the old acne marks are fading nicely.
