One month and 8 days

Hi, well I did not make it through my period unscathed. I got 5 new spots. They were not too bad-- but it did ruin my stretch of clear skin. During this time I did miss one dose. This is leathal when on spiro. Really cannot be sure if it is the missed dose or my period that brought on these new spots. Despite this set back-- the bottom line is -- my skin is much better than it has ever been. The side effects are fading-- with exception of the motivation factor-- It still feels like I am missi

One Month and 4 days on Spiro

Well, I have to say that despite the SE (which are getting better over time) Spiro has really worked to clear my skin. It is amazing I started my cycle today and I should have some breakout-- but, nothing. Skin is completely clear of bumps!!! It is almost unbelievable. I do still have small blackheads throughout my T zone. I just read about Mandelic acid as a potential treatment for that. Will keep you posted. I have been using BP and AHA and Apricot oil (I do not have any Jojoba oil on hand but

Day 26

Hi, day 26 here. Skin is clear with exception of one small surface blemish on the side of my nose. Now (that I have read this website) I know to leave it alone and let it take care of itself. SPiro SE of exhaustion, cloudy thinking, sluggishness persist. I have drank lots of Extra water. This helps, but does not take the SE away. I have been keeping my skin well hydrated. I use apricot oil. Another great oil like Jojoba. So Far so good....

Day 25

Hi, day 25 is here. Still no new blemishes. IBO is healing. My skin is dry normally so I use apricot oil to aide in the healing process. I also read about 10% AHA on this wed site, so am planning on using this to reduce the post acne hyperpigmentation. That is sure to be as big as a battle as the acne for me. I tanned A LOT in HS and College to treat my skin-- a quick fix with terrible long term effects-- major skin damage in the form of unsitely melasma. Reading on hyperpig treatments th

Day 24 on Spiro

Hi day 24 here. No new spots today. Last two breakouts healing (slowly). Spiro SE of fatigue, sluggishness, excessive thirst, and as I forgot to mention decreased appetite. Have read just about this entire web site and will also be treating my skin much more gently than I have been in the past- Before it was always me against my skin. I will take a new approach....

Days 1-23 on Spiro

First, a little history. I am a 35 y.o. F. Acne began at age 12. So I have 23 years of acne torture under my belt. I have always noticed a hormonal pattern to my acne-- with almost clear times shot down with the pre period and during period acne. I also see a flare up at ovulation sometimes. I have tried Tetracycline, bactroban, low dose progesterone BCP, topical progesterone creams, Murad, Proacitve, Probiotics (by mouth and topical), mud masks, fasts, cleases, steaming, cold laser therapy,
