My skin is so dryyy omg it's crazy..I'm just gonna leave it get to the point of peeling everywhere so that it could peel all the bad off. And I think my moisturizer causes more oil production, making more acne. which obviously isn't good so i'll just see what happens, unless any of you recommend anything to use
I'm still using the medication, and the dial soap I switched to a black soap from Boscia (But still switch them both on and off). Also I am using a good moisturizer. But I have notice big changes after I stopped using my medication amitriptyline maybe I should start taking it again, or is my body detoxing??? I could really use some advice on what to do...wait it out or continue my use of it?
I quit writing on here because I honestly thought that my medication was working. But It was too good to be true unfortunately...all of my acne was basically gone. But since maybe a couple days ago my skin is bubbling like crazy!!! I have one huge cystic pimple surrounded by tiny clusters of dots everywhere. The dots aren't even coming to a head, all there doing is popping up and staying there. My cheeks also never got acne and now it's everywhere. My chin i think is a lost cause just like my forehead. I keep getting cystic acne on my chin and forehead, and for some reason my temples which also never had acne on them are FILLED with bumps and pimples. I've had chest and back issues now, because they're filled with pimples as well. I don't understand what I'm doing wrong to deserve this. I'm following all the instructions to a T. I've lost all my motivation and want to be done. All I do now a days is sleep, and try to avoid seeing people because I'm so embarrassed of how I look...I don't wanna be one of those people who constantly seem like they want attention,but all I have to vent is this website. If you've read this far, I really appreciate it -Liz
My forehead is a MESS. I have so many little whiteheads and splotches of acne everywhere, so does my chin.Cheecks are kinda better, but everything looks different every morning I wake up. I just want this to be over with, I look in the mirror and just cringe at how bad it is.
Things could be better...I didn't want to wash my face while using these creams but I might have to start. Because my forehead needs a good cleaning. I've been using witch hazel to cleanse before I put on anything, and then using tea tree oil, then the creams. I think i'll start with the dial antibacterial soap, and see how everything goes. Maybe ill write a review soon after I use the soap, just because I can Lol. But yeah my face is definitely purging everything and there's a lot of scaring..just gotta stay motivated. I called the derm and she said to stop with the medication immediately, so that's what I'm gonna do, and I already feel a lot better.
Well today I have more hope. I have continued use of all products expect minocycline. Because I was getting physically ill to the point where I couldn't even stand, and almost passed out. Which was pretty scary since I've had previous problems with vertigo, and all of the dizziness and headaches came back FULL FORCE lol I'm for sure calling the dermatologist tomorrow, but in the meantime i started using tea tree oil to try to put more moisture back into my flaky skin. To my surprise it's actually working! I'm starting to love me for me, my cheeks are clearing up and my chin is still a mess, as well as my forehead. But like I said previously it's only been a week ans I need to give it time. And I could also take this as an opportunity to heal my mind, and try to stay positive at all cost, even though I don't look like what I want to in this moment. I hope all is well to everyone else fighting to get clear skin,just remember to stay positive!!
