End of Week 12

I'm really disheartened. Just as I was feeling better about my skin, I got a bunch of comedones around my mouth. In a fit of fury and frustration, I picked all of them and now I have little red scabs all over my face. I look ugly and weird. I also am not completely clear in the areas that I was treating, despite the fact that I've passed the magic 12 week mark. I still have maybe ten tiny comedones in the region, but the area is faintly red, making my skin look worse than it is. I have precisely

Week 10, I think?

My skin looks less red, but there are still invisible, flattened nodules under the surface. I don't think they're cysts because they aren't painful, aren't visible to the naked eye, and aren't raised. Whatever they are though, they don't budge. They just feel like hard discs under my skin. Besides those, I've got a few tiny comedones here and there. The whole area is still a bit pink, but the redness seems to be fading. I'm still not comfortable wearing my hair away from my face because of the p

WEEK EIGHT

The aforementioned nodules have flattened out and are still red, but no longer white-headed or active-seeming. Closed comedones pop up and are gone a day or two later. The area is still a little red, particularly around the flattened nods. I'm still following the same regimen as before. I hope I won't have too much trouble with nodules in the weeks to come and that my remaining acne will improve. Otherwise I'll be very discouraged. I've read about Taz users on this site who improved significantl

OK, not sure what to think..

I'm on my seventh week of Taz and, as I mentioned in the last entry, my millions of closed comedones have been gradually improving. Yesterday I woke up with four fat nodules on my jaw though. They used to be closed comedones, so I guess something irritated them and caused them to become inflamed. Today one of them is turning white, one has shrunk drastically, and two have flattened out. The area is red and angry-looking. Is this my IB? It seems pretty late in the game to be having one. Should

Stubborn closed comedones

Three years ago I had a small breakout of closed comedones on one of my cheeks by my hairline. I hadn't had much acne before (the odd, isolated closed comedone here or there) so I panicked and went to the dermatologist. A year and a half later, I had tried antibiotics, Duac, Tazorac, Benzaclin, Klaron, Clindamycin, and hundreds (and hundreds of dollars) of over-the-counter cleansers, spot treatments, etc. The closed comedones were still there, but had also sprung up on the other cheek and around
