ugh that stuff never worked for me and made my stomach hurt so bad! the only antibiotics that ever worked for me were minocycline, doxycycline and keflex. keflex worked the best out of them all that stuff was amazing.

i can barely see those spots at all and a good concealer would cover those right up. its nothing to worry about but it could take months for the mark to go away. you can do ipl to get rid of the spot a lot quicker but it will cost you at least $125 or more for a spot treatment (they zap between 10-15 spots)

kirks you are so welcome! i only wish there was more i could do for you. if you lived in pittsburgh i would be at your house trying to cheer you up that is for sure  i am glad to be able to help you and yeah that would make more sense about the cystic break out and your period being due. the first so many months of spiro i was getting 2 periods a month and i always got my worst acne then so it was just killing me. once i started to get normal periods again and get on antibiotics i was totally fine and now being off the antibiotics since march my skin is totally fine now at any time of the month. once you get past this shitty time and you start to really clear you up you will so happy and then can really start to live your life again. i had a new appreciation for things and just felt so much happier to re-join the world again. you will be amazed at how something simple like going to dinner is exciting again!

yeah i agree you need to just totally stay away from the mirror and whatever you do dont touch your face. i find with myself if i touch my face and feel the spots i get the worst anixety its like if i dont touch it then i dont realize how bad it is. try to do something this weekend that will just totally relax you like read a book or binge watch your favorite tv show. in a few more weeks i believe you will be at such a better place i know it.

yeah i knew your derm was across the state but was just wondering if you will be getting injections when you go but yeah i agree i hope you dont need them either and that the keflex really kicks in and knocks those suckers out. you dont want to have to worry about atrophy too!

you are very welcome and i am always here for you anytime you need me. like i said before if you ever want to chat on here or fb or anything just message me.

more prayers for ya and have a great weekend!
