So I went to the dermatologist yesterday, and the doctor told me I had bacterial acne. So she prescribed me a oral medication called Minocycline that I have to take twice a day. Then she told me to use an over the counter face wash called Cetaphil that I wash my face with twice a day. And also (lol) I have to put an ointment on called Adapalene. To get used to the ointment because it can be drying I have to do it every 3 days for 2 weeks than every 2 days for 2 weeks and than go to every day once a day. She made an appointment for me in 2 months and if it doesn't look any better she will decide if I need to try something stronger. I cant wait to see the results!
Hey guys! So let me introduce myself, I am a 14 year old girl that has been self conscious of her acne since 11.My brother had BAD acne at 15 and was put on Accutane from a dermatologist that my mom took him too and he is now 18 and is acne free but he chose to keep his acne scars because of the long and PAINFUL process that he would have had to go through. But he was very self conscious and I never knew why until at 11 I started getting pimples on my chin and at 12 it spread to my cheeks and my forehead. I have tried everything to proactive, to almost all the Clearasil and Neutrogena products. So I just started high school and I cant even talk to people without feeling like they are just laughing at me in their minds about my acne. I don't have a lot of cyst like acne but I have big pimples that just wont go AWAY! So my mom has made an appointment with the dermatologist that helped my brother with his acne. So I hope that she will help me boost my confidence. So I would love you guys to come along with me to my journey to clear skin!
