Notes to self...... I went to my 2nd appointment on Feb 21. Doctor upped my dosage to 150mg (Spiro) and insisted I use the atralin gel every night. My hubby who went w/ me that day will make sure I follow my regimine. So far so good. It's been a week now and my skin is looking a lot better. Although I did get a big "bump like" pimple on my chin - the ones that hurt. I hope it doesn't develope and just goes down this week. I have experenieced one side effect, but I don't know if it's the atralin gel or the spiro. Or a combination of both. Anyways the cornors of my mouth are getting slightly red, and dry. I aslo have a slight numbing sensation on lips. I'm going to try not to put the atralin gel so close to my mouth this week...maybe that's it. I'll see what happens. I dont' think it's the spiro, becasue I do't feel thirsty per say.

....no welcome! Oh well. Anyway, I'm just here wanting to start my own log so I can check my progress with they occational set-backs I can expect from my crazy face!!!! Well I've been on Spironolactone for about a month (28 days to be exact). I have had no improvemnts whatsoever. In fact, i thenk my acne is worse. I've been so angry this whole month. I went to see the dermatolgist due to acne I was getting under my chin/neck area, which I never got before, now it's more aggrivated. I blame it on the Atralin gel. This week I applied it and the following day I had new friends on my face!!! This week I was looking into the Hibiclens. I used it last night. I washed my face with ivory body wash. (like I always do) and applied the Hibiclens afterwards, put it on with my fingers in a circular motion. Rinsed and let my face air dry. I went to bed. Next morining, my face looked slightly different better - slightly. Anyways, I decided to put more on this morning as a toner. So I got a cotton ball an applied it on my face. I have had no discomfort with it at all. I'm going to keep using it for a week to see what happens. I'm really afraid of the Atralin gel...

Hi to all!, I'm new here...been exploring this wesite for 2 days now just reading and learning about a few members here and there. Well,....I've had acne since middle school.....it comes, it goes,....very persistent little buggers!!!!!I've tried a lot of crap over the years that has done nothing for me.......so these past 5 years I've just let my face do its own thing....and up until know it seemed to work not stressing over zitz but --just these last two weeks I've been bombarded by zits just under my chin (large undr the skin zits that just ache). I've cried, cried, and cried some more...I went to the dermotolgisti and he put me on spironolactone 100mg each morining. I've been taking them since Friday, 1-22-11. Along with Atrilan gel 3x a week. I'm just so desperate and want fast results!!!! I hope once and for all I can enjoy a clear face before I die!!!!!!!!!!!.....
