After terrible side effects with bactrim, I am on the 5th day of a medrol dose pack. My cysts have flattened but my cheeks are covered in red marks that will undoubtably become bumps again once I finish the medrol. The right side of my face looks like a pizza. The left side has a few marks but nothing much. Weird, right? I don't get it... So now I am in the first week of only using topicals. Tretinoin at night and clindamyacin during the day. I'll update my progress or lack there of.
