Day 68

So almost a month since my last post. I've been to the doctor and he gave me another dose of 56 tablets. My blood test was fine he said. He siad there had been a vast improvememtn/ I'm still sure this is 100% hormone affected. Today I feel I'm back to square one, they are everywhere on my face and most are actives - even on my chest now where I've NEVER had them before. The ones on my shoulders are no longer active and are slowly disappearing. I have leaver's prom next week and want to

Day 43

So today will be the 6th week and 1 day mark. Honestly, I'm not very happy but I've found the cause for me. My current progress: I have progressed somewhat and only have one major spot but still have loads of small ones which isn't nice. For me the cause is 100% hormones, which means as a guy, for me, masturbating is the cause. I will abstain from today until I am completely 100% clear. Tetracycline does seem to be slowly helping though but only 2 week supply left.

Day 30

Just over 4 weeks into the tetracycline process now. This is apparently the miracle time where everything should be happening for me. It's not. Face is as it was pre-treatment so those 4 weeks seem to have made no difference due to a big breakout a few days back. Let's hope it does clear up this week as people's reports say.

Day 24

Wow some nice improvement has happened, so almost half way through my first dosage of 56 days and finishing off my first box of 28 this week. Blood test in about 3 weeks, still needs to be booked. I only really have one big active spot on my right cheek and a few small ones on the lieft side near the upper lip and everything else seems to just be dying. I'm probably around 40% claim now there's less redness on the face as a whole, hopefully within the next couple of weeks it'll all be gone

Day 8

The ones near my lip have errupted and are actually painful today and look horrible but the one on my left cheek seems to be slowly dying. There hasnt been any positive effect since starting so far really. My back acne seems to have slightly improved thiugh tha improvement would have been more than welcome on my face. Im going to start taking lymecycline on an empty stomach as i have a feeling the dairy in my orotein shakes is affecting it in the morning. So ill have breakfast and wa

Day 7

So tomorrow it will be a full week. Thinking about this is kind of a downer for me as now that i look my face hasnt got any better yet school restarts on tuesday so i hope to have had SOME kind of improvement by then. I think the sun may have damaged my skin but i avoided it today and stayed in the shade. Got a new whitehead today on my top lip which hurts. Lots of small ones forming around my chin but nothing too big there. The two big ones on my left side are still there, just jamming

Day 5

So used the 10% peroxide on my face and it went really red at the start but subsided after 20 mins or so of letting the moisturiser cool it down. A smaller reaction haopened when i put it on today. Took my 5th lymecycline pill today. i hate pills i had never taken one before lymecycline as i was unable to swallow them so at least i have learned that. I can fell a spot coming under the left side of my nose. Right side of face has no major ones justsmall ones everywhere. Quite a few small o

Day 4

Day 4. Spot by my left lip, lower cheek is no longer white/yellowish so that one has errupted and i dying down. Masturbating yesterday has made my face go from clear-ish to all having a red glow and i can see hundreds of little ones all over my face which are making it look red. Though that may just be from lying in the sun all day. One major one in between my eyebrows which errupted over the course of the day. And i masturbated again today which is just embarassing. Got 150ml panoxyl ben

3 days in

So i have mild/moderate acne and have had it for 5 years. Friday i went to the doctor and i have been given lymecycline and benz peroxide 10% facial scrub. I am now on my 3rd day or the lymcycline snd cant say that it has got better but no new erruptions at all. Skin is probably best now it has been for years but not because of the drug. For reference i also have acne on upper back and arms which is pretty horrible. My 10% facial scrub ztill hasnt arrived but i have been using panoxy
