ok sooo i had to post again today because this breakout is only getting worse. yes i did pop a couple so thats why they are red but they were massive whiteheads and throbbing. these pictures are soo yucky. but this captures the worse breakout i've had on accutane and im on day 50 i guess this is normal because everyone is different but this is really the worst my skin has been in the past couple months. my first month and a half were great and now explosion...
these spots just hurt so bad and
Hello all, good afternoon or good morning for me. i'm working nights for the next month for work so my body will be totally wacky, hah. oh well better money.
Skin: So as the title says i'm experiencing a breakout on both sides of my cheeks, worse on the R side w/ 4 red red med-large spots, i think 2 are just marks but they have gotten redder over the past day. the L side has just 2-3 that aren't bad. chin and forehead are clear except for large pores and blackheads on forehead. large pores an
ok need a vent session:
Okay so today was suppose to be my 2nd blood test and derm apt to put me on accutane, BUT it's only been 29 days and not 30= annoying because i called the docs office when it was scheduled and said "its only 29 days the doc told me it HAS TO BE 30 or after" oh no no no you're totally fine, we're not open on saturday's so you can come Friday, i was skeptical but i'm like these ppl deal with this all the time so they know what they're doing right? WRONG. so i had my appo
okay so i'm still on 100mg spiro 1x/day, but i have been taking an extra 50mg a couple of days a week because my face is still super oily but my spots seem to be clearing up (cross my fingers and hence the title not getting my hopes up). i feel like every time i make progress something always sets me back, BUT i should not think like that. i'm not using any topicals for the past 2 weeks other than acne.org face wash and moisturizer. over the past couple days I have been using acne.
Hello, update on 9 weeks spiro 100mg 1x day, been off differin for about 2 weeks (made my skin FREAK OUT or thats what the derm thinks i hope shes right- pics are in gallery). i've also been off birth control for about 6 weeks. i was using tretinoin 0.1% before my face erupted every night but my derm told me not to use anything because she wants my skin to calm down since the differin last week. but i did use it maybe twice over these last 2 weeks, only a verrry verry small amt on my problem are
okay so my skin is still about the same, 20 or so red red pimples, and about 3-4 large red on both my cheeks, my face just looks a total mess, the worst its been in a year and i thought it was bad before, hah this takes the cake.
im trying not to look in the mirror and just forget about it but ive been super obsessing about my skin this last week because of the dramatic step backwards. i've been just doing spiro 100mg 1x/day and moisturizer for the past 3 days since my derm apt. but i'm nerv
Ok so i went to the derm today, luckily i called and they had a cancellation, maybe my luck is changing, hah. and i have a new derm now because my old one left the office and she is AWESOME, i've never seen her before and she is so cool and funny and spent time listening to me and just seemed like a genuine great person, i saw her interacting w/ staff and other patients when i was leaving and she was just amazingly normal, i'm really looking forward to working with her to clear up my skin...
Ok so i didn't think my skin could possibly get any worse but it has. i don't even know how i'm going to go into work tonight and interact w/ so many people. i haven't felt this down about my skin since last year.
this is my 7th week of spiro, i increased my dose from 100 to 150mg b/c i was still super oily and breaking out. i quit differin after 7 weeks, i know you're not supposed to but i think maybe that could be why my face is going crazy. so i started slowing adding tretinoin back in (i
I've been using acne.org for a while but am finally joining! i'm sorry if this entry is sooo long, i don't even care if no one reads this but i just have a lot to say and get off my chest because i can't really talk about this to anyone. So my acne story started about a year or so ago really...
I had a few spouts of acne in high school, NOTHING major at all just some manageable pimples here and there, always had fairly larger pores w/ some blackheads, didn't even think twice abo
