Another thing. The antibiotics are not very effective right now. The comedones on my forehead are back. Maybe I got a resistance from earlier use. It just seems odd after 45 days of use.
Maybe it needs more time to combat the bacteria. It just funny I've experienced improvement and then it goes back as it were.

The pimple I mentioned yesterday as "nothing serious" has turned into a cystic-like pimple. Motherfucking cystic pimple! 

 

It could be your toothpaste. The fluoride in almost all toothpastes can cause acne: http://www.skin-evol...sing-your-acne/

 

I have a prescription. I just need to go down at the pharmacy and pick it up. It's hard to find time for a simple thing as that ;-)

 Nice to hear that Epiduo is also helping you! It's good stuff! ;-) 

 

How long time have you been using it now?

 

For me it has been 2 months and 2 days. My skin still looks good and I have seen a lot of improvement the last couple of weeks. I'm almost out of antibiotics, but i'll renew my subscription sometime soon. 

 

I just got a pimple close to my right sideburn today. Nothing serious. The most important thing is that things are moving forward.

Thank you very much! I studied Information Technology and I was lucky to get employment almost right away. But I think it's hard in all fields nowadays. 

 

For me it's been almost two months now (14th of october). I have really seen some major improvements the last 1-2 weeks.Right now I have no active pimples and only a few impurities. Nothing serious. I just hope things stay this way and keep improving. Epiduo is just an amazing medication. The antibiotics are helping as well. Before using antibiotics, I had a lot of very small closed comedones on my forehead (not inflamed) and barely visible and now they are gone (i'm not using Epiduo on my forehead). 

 

Improvements in the skin are not visible from day to day but over time Just keep using the Epiduo!

Actually i'm not using SPF, but I really should when the spring arrives sometime next year! I read somewhere that a retinoid makes the skin super thin (4-5 layers) compared to 8-9 layers and therefore the skin is extra sensitive to the sun as you've experienced. 

 

I hope to get another month worth of tetracycline as well.
