Starting Spironolactone 50Mg

Ok so my dermatologist prescribed me Spiro 50 mg once a day and have been taking it since Oct. 22nd. Its day 5 and so far so good, I haven't had any side effects or any break outs but that could be due to also taking 100mg of Minocycline once a day too and Im also using Aczone twice a day and Retin-a at night, the combination of all of these has been working for me and I haven't had a break out in the past 2 months. I'll be back with an update on the Spiro in another week and see how things are then

4Th Month On Spiro

Well actually I will be starting my 4th month on 50 mg of Spiro. As of now I only have one very small pimple that's not even noticeable. In November I had a pretty bad break out that I had to go see my dermatologist for some cortisone shots but other than that I have been fairly clear with the exception of some acne scars. I would really like to try and eat some chocolate but I'm so afraid that it will cause me to break out like crazy like it has done in the past! I've never had trouble with dairy which is good cause I cant live without my ice cream and I love cheese lol .......I will update again in another 2 months

Microdermabrasion

Its been years since I had a microdermabrasion and i finally got one done yesterday, so far i dont see much difference but I know I will have to get at least 2 more done to see results . I do see my skin having a healthy glow and it looks alot smoother. I will be posting a before and after pics soon.

Derm Visit Update

Hi Everyone! Its been forever since I last posted but I just wanted to update and say I went to see my derm today after a very bad break out. I had to get a small procedure done to burn some of the marks I have on my face and also had to get a few injections into the pimples I already had, both were VERY painful!! Right now my face is swollen and looks like I just got beat up lol but on the good side, in 5 days time i should have better looking skin. My derm upped my minocycline dose to 75 mgs twice a day , have to put something called Acrone Gel in the morning and still keep using my retin-a .01% at night. Next month I will start getting mild chemical peels done too, so im hoping all this will lead me to the road of clear, acne free skin )

Minocycline

Hi guys!!! Its been awhile since I posted anything in my blog but not really too much to update on. I had another visit to my derm about 2 weeks ago due to a very bad break out I was having around my chin area, this break out was pretty bad to the point where my acne was hurting to the touch Well my derm added minocycline 75mgs once a day and this is my 2nd week taking it, so far my skin is clearing up again and the acne has calmed down I have to go back to my doctor for a follow up in one month so hopefully this anibiotic will keep working and I can stay clear!!!

Derm Visit

Finally after a year I went back to my derm yesterday for a follow up...everything went well, my derm said my skin was looking great and added a face wash to my regimen I did have a new break out on the left side of my cheek but cleared up after 4 days and left a few dark scars that should fade away within time with the new face wash he perscribed me*at least thats my the doctor said* so only time well tell. Over all Im very pleased with how far ive come along with the retin-a and clindymacin

Week with the flu

Been fighting the flu the past week and havent been able to get to work Todays the first day in 5 days ive actually been out of the house and it was nice!!! What a beautiful day out As for my skin its been doing pretty good, ive noticed that since ive been sick my skin actually looks more clear lol isnt that weird but i was still able to keep up my daily regimen, im afraid if i skip a day my skin might start breaking out again and ive tried so hard to get it where im satisfied i dont want to jeopardize anything
