In Topic: Tactuo/epiduo, Freaking Out :(

I'm 3 ½ month in and things are looking very good. An IB is very normal within the first month or so. I began to see consistent improvement by month 3. It's ups and downs.

 

Patience is the key. 

 

Take a look at my log if you want to see my journey from day 1 to now.

It's been a couple of weeks since last update. 

 

Things are still good. I had a couple of pimples. Nothing serious. They go away in a couple of days and almost never surface and turn into a real noticeable pimple. 

 

It's been about 3 ½ month now.

Hi!

 

I wouldn't call it a setback. It just that the antibiotics did nothing for me. 

 

It's almost three months now. Actually it's tomorrow. Things have been really good the last couple of weeks. Consistent improvement and very little impurities. 

 

Patience is the key.

I've decided to stop using the antibiotics after about 2 months of use. After about 4 weeks i had a clear up lasting about two weeks. My forehead cleared up completely (i'm not using anything on my forehead). My forehead is now back to how it use to be. 

 

Besides that I use to have a couple of spots on my back. Now my back have gone from very mild to moderate. It's pretty strange. I haven't changed anything in my habits and daily life. It must be a sign that something is going on in my body. I've been prescribed tetracycline a couple of times before in my youth and therefore I think that the acne bacteria has something kind of "resistance" from earlier use and it has probably killed some of the "good" bacteria in the gut. 

 

I'll keep using Epiduo which i'm fairly happy about.

Sorry for the late reply. I've been super busy lately. 

 

Did you get hold of a tube of Epiduo? 

 

I can renew my prescription of Epiduo in 11 days. The problem with Epiduo and other topicals is that we have to keep using the product to stay "clear". Hopefully our skin gets better someday. 

 

Day 80

 

My skin actually looks generally good. I'm not clear, but the overall apperance of my skin is good. 

 

Still using Epiduo once a day and spot treating with Dans BP 5%. 

 

Using tetracycline 500mg x 2 a day as well.
