Not sure what day im on. But its the 3rd month

So I just got back from my 3rd doctor appointment. I got bumped up from 60mg to 80 mg because I'm still getting large cystic acne, so we'll see how that goes. I still have dry skin on my nose and my scalp is killing me! Its so increadibly itchy. My doctor gave me some topical for it but it isn't helping much. I got switched to the generic Yaz but its my first day of it so I'm not too sure if I'm going to react to it differently or anything. I hope i don't My skin is looking a littl

Day 14

Howdy all So i guess you can say that the initial breakout has begun i guess. Or at least i think it has haha. I have like 4 cysts and my blackheads seem to be "coming out". Uhh i cant wait for this to be over!!! My nose, face and lips are endlessly dry and my mouth cracked open on the very corners so i cant open my mouth all the way. Ive been putting lotion on all the time but it doesnt seem to be helping much and my lips just suck up the chapstick like nothing. My head and body get pretty i

Day 11

So today was a little better, my face is still dry but a little less flakey I still havent had the initial breakout which i have to say is starting to piss me off. I mean im not looking forward to it but i'd rather get it over with sooner than later. And get my clear skin asap. I havent seen much of any difference in my skin besides the dry ness. My lips feel really funny though lol. They are really dry but not the kinda dry where they crack and peel. They almost feel like i got a facia

Day 9

Uhhh... I cant put enough lotion on my face to keep it not dry and flakey and even when it doesnt look all dry and flakey as soon as i put makeup on it shows everything. which it the total opposite of what im trying to do with makeup. and i still dont see anything happening to my face. dont know whats up with that. most people ive talked to or read about have had the initial breakout by now. and to make matters worse i lost both of my chapsticks!! sorry that this is just alot of bitching.

Day 7

Holy Cow!!!! Everything itches Especially my head, its killing me. I used a bbunch of conditioner tonight when i took a shower so hopefully that'll help out a little. But my whole body seems to be drying out. I still havent had the dreaded initial breakout, and lets just hope that it doesnt come and i go straight to healing! but i doubt i'll be that lucky. Uhmmm well i guess i'll just cover some stuff that i didnt in my first post. I've had acne since i was in 5th grade which i gu
