Current skin - Almost 4 months on Spiro

Here are my pictures of my skin currently. I have like 2/3 active zits on my forehead but there are always little zits under the skin of my forehead  that are not visible in pictures. I also have a lot of red/brown scars, overall redness, blotchyness and hyperpigmentation that you can clearly see.

Almost 4 months

It’s been almost 4 months now that I’ve been on 100 mg of the Spiro and about 4 weeks ago I increased to 125 mg. I think I am seeing very slow improvements with each month that goes by but I’m still getting new zits every other day or every 3 days at least. I am continuing to try to keep positive but I guess I’m still waiting for this miraculous “perfect” skin that I read about on reviews. I’m seeing a new dermatologist in two days so I am hopeful she will give me some advice and a new perspecti

Current skin- been on 100mg of Spiro for almost 3 months

Here are current pictures of my bare skin. I’m trying to keep positive because I can see improvement but it’s definitely not flawless like so many other reviews I’ve read. Maybe my expectations are crazy but I seriously want my skin to not have any blemishes. I am still getting under the skin zits on my forehead that do not go away unless I pop them. Then I’m left with terrible scabs, as you can see in the pic. And I still have these deep blackheads or something down on my chin that will not pur

3 months- I’m still waiting for results

I figured I’d write an update since it’s been almost a month since I created this blog. I’ve been on Spiro since October 31, 2017. I am currently taking 100 mg at night before bed. I started the dosage out very low and have gradually increased but I have not seen much improvement in my skin. I would not call my acne severe... BUT it is very very persistent; all kinds of zits and pretty much all over my face to some degree. Being 32 years old I would assume my acne is hormonal but I do not get a

Photos of my current skin

This is hard for me to do but I want to be real and raw with this journey I’m on. So here are photos I took last night of my skin right after I got out of the shower. I’d say they’re fairly accurate but my skin/acne is always a bit more red and blotchy after I am in a hot shower. Some of the pimples were ones I picked at that you couldn’t even see but I knew they were there and it drives me crazy. I definitely need to be better at not picking and just letting them go. I know that all it does is

The first 2 months

This is going to be a very long first post because I’m going to go into detail of my whole acne experience. So I apologize in advance! Im not even sure anyone will be interested in reading this blog but I know for myself I have read a few other personal blogs on this site and they have encouraged me in this battle with acne. I’m a female, 32 years old and have had mild to moderate acne on and off since I was 13. In high school I had a few zits here and there but it was very mild and nothing t
