Hi guys, So it's been a while since I've posted. For me, this is a good thing - it means I haven't been obsessing over my face haha My PD has been doing better, I've started using my cleanser and my moisturizer again like I used to. I'm still on the antibiotics so I'm hoping those will fight off the last of it. It seems to be doing much much better but I'm left with these horrible red marks. They're just on my chin and the skin seems to be slightly bumpy, not a whole lot, just uneven.
Hi everyone, So it's been a couple days since I've been using the ACV and I've seen pretty good results. It's been a little aggravating on the open sores of my PD (which aren't big at all) but the ACV causes some weeping still in some areas if it's not diluted enough. For the most part though, it's looking better and drying up and flaking off nicely! I've also been using my moisturizer after the ACV and this has seemed to help tremendously too. Went to the doc today to get anoth
So, after a long battle with myself, I decided to leave the yogurt alone. I went back to ACV, after talking with some people, I figured I'm going to try it for longer than a day haha This time though, I've diluted it 50/50 with water. It definitely doesn't sting as much, doesn't really sting at all... And this morning is looked a lot less red all over, just the main pimples were red. So, here's hoping. I'm also back at work this week, time to face this evil world!! Wish me luck,
So my face seems to be going nowhere. Nowhere terrible but nowhere good either. I'm kind of at the point where I feel like I should just leave it. Wash with water only. Put nothing on it. At least for this last week while I'm on antibiotics. I have a feeling I'm going to be on them longer though. I actually just recently washed with my cleanser (which I've been avoiding), then I put moisturizer on some parts. This should be interesting. I fucking hate my skin. Hoots ps.
Hey, So I've been crying (not skin related), and I realized a new pimple popped up. It's not huge but jesus does stress really trigger this skin condition. It got me thinking, I just broke up with my boyfriend... about a month or two ago, could this be the trigger? Maybe this plus the change in weather? So much to think about. Just put some yogurt on. Feels good. I've also been thinking, maybe it's the dry skin that's creating tiny clogged pores? I haven't been using anything on
Hello hello, Today is a much better day. I think the reason my PD looked more upset yesterday is because I let the yogurt on my face dry out too long. When it does, it gets super hard to move your face and kinda hurts. SO - helpful tip if using yogurt: either use it as a face wash or leave it on till it's semi-hardened. Today seems better, the marks are definitely a lighter pink, still a little bumpy. I can see some bumps that are more or less just dead skin healing (scabs) but I stil
Today feels sort of like a stand still. You know when you get your hopes up so much, thinking oh hell yes it's finally going away! Then days like today hit you where it seems like it just got slightly worse. Could totally be my imagination, but I noticed a new pimple in the area, I haven't touched it but it just make it seem worse. Mino is suppose to suppress the pimples not form them! Oh well. Still, I guess I should look on the bright side, it does look like it's getting better-ish.
Today I shall name peeling day, since my whole chin just about peeled off. BUT - it doesn't seem like such a bad thing. I know I shouldn't play with my PD but I can't help but pick off the massive flakes. So that's exactly what I did, and then applied some yogurt. Anywho - I feel good right now. Or rather, my chin feels 'soothed'. I hope I didn't peel too much off or peel skin off before the skin under it has heeled (we've all done that before ) I'm not sure if it's the Mino working or the
So this day 3 of my healing. I'm going to use the word healing since I'm really praying that's what's happening. I have lots of little updates though: 1. I've stopped using the ACV - it was really aggravating my PD, making it red and angry looking (and I'm not dealing with that, which sucks) 2. I've started using yogurt on the affected areas. It's just plain probiotic yogurt, bought from Safeway or something.. When I put it on the PD oh my god does it feel good! It's sooo soothing
Hey all, (or whoever reads this?) About a year and a half ago I was diagnosed with Perioral Dermatitis. At first I had no freakin' idea what was going on but after enough research and putting enough crap on my face, I finally got it under control. I was PD free for a while... Until now. SO - It came back did it? Yes. But it hasn't been terrible. I knew the minute I started getting tiny bumps on my chin. I started to pick and play with them, which obviously only made things worse, which
