Over 2 years on Curology, Spironolactone, and Zinc Soap

I've been on Curology, Spironolactone, and using zinc soap by Nobles for over 2 years now. My skin is still really clear! Praise God! When my acne was bad it was really tough, because it just...felt terrible! I'm off of Birth Control right now and am taking less of the Spiro. I only take 25mg of Spironolactone in the am now, and my face is still clear! I had one large zit between my eye brows lately, but I'm pretty sure that was from wearing my tight goggles while doing woodworking. Anyways...

Over a month on Spironolactone & 66 days of Curology

Thank The Lord my skin has not broken out in a long time  now. I had no big pre period / hormonal breakouts! I've been on my curology prescription 66 days now along with Spearmint tea. I've also been on spironolactone for over a month now. I thought spironolactone might be messing with my sleep so I've only been taking it in the am just in case. My doctor doesn't think it was the spiro but I'm paranoid I guess.  Anyways I've also been using the zinc bar soap by Nobles for a month or so now. It's

Curology and Spironolactone

I have now been on Curology for over a month. It doesn't seem to irritate my skin. My face is actually worse right now because I'm going to be starting my TOM next week. I'm going to try the Curology awhile longer I think. My Curology dermatologist told me to incorporate zinc soap by Nobles into my regimen. I started that yesterday because it has 2% zinc pyrithione in it which kills fungus and bacteria. I always get HUGE zits a week or two before my TOM(time of the month) so today I had my prima

Day 1 Curology

So no matter how much I want things to clear my skin, that I used to be able to use on my skin, they don't work. I prayed and just sucked up my fear of dermatologists. I got an online dermatologist on curology because it's a lot less hassle! I didn't want to have to call my doc to get a referral for dermatology, call the dermatologist, go see the derm, and then go get a prescription. I have insurance but it still costs money and driving. I also don't like taking on the phone for some reason.

Update on regimen, allergies

My skin has been really itchy and I've been getting hives on my back. My face is itchy but no hives there thank the Lord! The hives on my back are there mostly at night, I wake up with an itchy back lately. I know I'm allergic to a lot of things but I don't know everything that I am allergic too. I'm not sure what's causing the hives so I prayed and started eliminating scented stuff. I'm taking a few different allergies pills and using topical anti-itch products. Hopefully my doctor gets my refe

What I've used in the past, and now.

Past: tretinoin cream- a year or so ago and my skin is still sensitive from it. Before I had mainly clogged pores with occasional big zits. Now I have both. All the old products I used to use don't seem to work more me anymore. Thank the Lord my skin has healed a lot. It's still not the same as it was but it will get there. Clean and clear continuous cleanser 10% benzoyl peroxide- used to work for me before tretinoin cream. They also have changed the formulation since then I think. It now has
