So I just started my 5 pack of Ortho, 3rd bottle of Spiro 58mg.. and 3 months with epiduo forte..
All in all my skin has rapidly improved! My skin is smooth to the touch, maybe like 3-5 whitehead on my overall face!! I occasionally get a zit or 2 under my jawline or on my cheek bone. Skin can be slightly dry at times but nothing too crazy... I still have scars and hyperpigmentation those I know will take awhile to clear...
My dermatologist is slightly annoying.. because
So as I said before I went to the dermatologist today. And asked for spiro and without hesitation she agreed to put me on that at 50 mg a day (will up the dose if needed) with epiduo forte (it's like regular epiduo but with stronger medication) and to continue orthotricyclen.
I'm very hopeful with everything she gave me and will stick it all out until the end.
I'll post again after I start everything! Wish me luck
So just a little blog... my acne is still the same just major scaring. . I see so many clogged pores it's gross. I'm being patient, my skin is already bad.. just hoping to see a light at the end of the tunnel soon.
I'm going to my derm in two days and I'm going to ask for spiro. I honestly feel like I have high testosterone levels for a girl (long arm hair, oily skin and I think I have a deeper voice then most girls) Im hoping my derm will prescribe it to me.. I've heard some
So I started my second pack yesterday.. still no change really.. I mean I guess I'm getting less cystic acne and more just nodules.
I feel like everything is coming to the surface which totally sucks because I had mentioned before my face was coverd in whiteheads...
so I would say my chin and above my mouth have been clearing up and my forehead doesn't have clogged pores now... so it mainly the sides of my mouth cheeks and jawline. Jawline is still where I still get cysts
I am getting slightly depressed.... my skin is just a wreck. It's nothing I haven't delt with before but it hasn't been this bad in say a year or so....
Every morning I wake up with new zits like 2-3 nothing huge but still gross. I have pale skin so I get hyperpigmentation like there's no tomorrow... I can handle scars but to have scars and a gross face. .. come on.. really hormones? Really?
