2 Months On Tetracycline

Now been 2 months on Tetracycline! My forehead, nose and chin have always been the most attacked areas, but they are definitely clearing up while on tetracycline. But my jawline and cheeks (especially my left side) are attacked with red marks. I think that my skin can’t keep up with a normal razor, so I’m going to try an electric razor. I don’t drink or eat any dairy, which my family has been supportive with (cut off the cheese in different meals, buy soy/rice milk instead of cow milk etc.). My regimen is: Morning: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser Olay Beauty Fluid Sensitive Moisturizer Evening: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser Epiduo BP 2,5 % Olay Beauty Fluid Sensitive Moisturizer Tea Tree Oil to my back My bacne is totally clear besides some scars, and I’ve been a lot in the gym in the last 2 months while on tetracycline and gained 2 kilos of muscles. I’ve always been really shy to show my body because of the bacne, but not now! Roskilde Festival is coming up soon. It’s the biggest festival in Denmark. I hope my skin can hold up the 9 days, because it’s going to be with a lot of beer and no real opportunities to keep up a normal regimen. I was also at Roskilde last year and my skin didn’t really break out, so I hope for the same this year.

I Was At The Doctor Today!

And what a confused doctor! But he gave me Tetracycline, which was my reason to go to the doctor. But i took my garlic pills, zink pills and vitamins together with my regimen: DSC cleanser, Oxy on Spot 2,5 % and DSC moisturizer with me, so the doctor could take a look at it. He said that garlic pills and zink was useless. Vitamins are not beneficial if you just eat healthy food. He said that it was good that I didn't use a regimen with perfume and alcohol, but I HAD to use the regimen that I needed to buy from him. I said that I didn't drink milk and other diary products, but he was just like: "diary products have nothing to do with acne and you can drink and eat all the diary products you want while being on Tetracycline" but i'm not stupid.. I have a question, which my doctor really couldn't answer: What can't i drink and eat? Which supplements should I stay away from?

Introduction Of My Blog

Hi there! I'm a 17 year old boy and turn 18 in next month. I'm from Denmark in a small town near Copenhagen. It's a town where everybody know me and I know everybody. That's why I hate where I live. Because everybody knows that I have acne and I hate that. My acne started about when was turning 16. It has been times with both bad and good periods. I have always been very quiet and shy. But when I was 15, I started to interest in how I was looking. I began to use hair wax and use more time on shopping cloth. Well, normal things for a teenager. The girls began to notice me and I got the most beautiful girlfriend. I was filled with confidence in that time. I loved to be social, get new friends and being around with my girlfriend. I loved myself and that period in my life. I won’t forget that period of my life. I was turned from a shy boy to a very open and social boy. But after some time my girlfriend broke up. It was about that time that I began to get acne. It came like a bomb. The first days with acne I was filled with small, red spots. And they didn't disappear. It damaged my confidence a lot! After some time with a mild/moderate acne I met a new girl. She was very supportive about my acne, which gave me a lot of confidence. But right before my 16th birthday, she was cheating on me. It was on the same day I got a bad, bad knee injury at a football match. It took 8 months before I could run again. My confidence has been low since that. Very low in some periods. I can’t even look people in the eyes when they are talking to me anymore. My regimen is right now: DSC cleanser and DSC moisturizer (DSC is a Danish brand) – it’s not that good. But I don’t buy things from USA because I live in Denmark. Use drops with Vitamin E in my moisturizer when my skin is flaking. I’m using tea tree oil to my bacne, which helps a lot! I drink a lot of water and eat fruit every day. Also play a lot of football. Right now I’m planning to see a doctor to see if I can get some tetracycline. My cousin is taking them right now and is almost cleared up. My 18th birthday is coming up and I need to get rid of my acne! So I think it will be a great thing to write down what I’m going through right now.
