Must say though I feel the side effects! I seem to be tired alot more than normal and my legs are always pretty stiff! Have a rash on hands and arms it itchy. Be at the docs tomorrow so see what he says. But I can hack it, least I can look in the mirror now. Still using the avene stuff! Swear by it!!!!!!!!!!

Day 20

Hope I am not speaking too soon but I think the initial breakout has passed. Skin is clear and has an even tone! Havent seen that in a while..

Not alot to report, feel better about myself now that the skin is looking better. Confidence is up! Feeling the power of the drugs more on this course than th

skin has actually calmed down a good bit! I think only washing once a day with a cleanser was a good idea! Only a couple of spots, some redness hidden by stubble but dryness is crazy! Ive had to put moisturiser on four times already today! Have that flaky skin from like when ya get sunburnt! Started taking a supplement called zinc ace, its zinc obviously with vitamin c & b. Should be good for repairing skin. just back from boots, bought the last of the supplies! 45 euro buying

Vicious cycle so the past two mornings I have only used warm water in the morning to wash and cetaphil face wash at night! Redness has died down somewhat, and there less of the yellow fellas! Thank God!! Bought new moisturiser today, "Boots expert sensitive daily defence moisture cream

Day 12

Im avoiding mirrors today Its crazy the amount of little whiteheads I have! Id love to know how long this IB is going to last but its hard to get an idea because each person is different. Hopefully not much longer! I didnt go into much detail yesterday as was kind of in a hurry so.... I am 24 year old chap, since the age of 12 I started developing acne. I began taking antibiotics which where generally succesfull for a number of years! But last year their effectiveness had complet
