This will be short and sweet... I don't think the breakout phase of the "Initial Tazorac Breakout" is over, but I at least experienced a little relief today. My husband even made the comment, "Wow your face is really clearing up." That really meant a lot. There are still blackheads surfacing, but the pimples are gone. At this point, the hyper-pigmentation is the worst part. I cant wait to go to the derm and discuss some potential combination therapy for the scarring.
All in all... I'm still happy. Since the initial breakout started, today was one of the first days of looking in the mirror and seeing my face before the scars. I guess that's always a good thing. I'm soooo ready for the day when I can really tell the difference and the scars are lightening and I'm not really getting any more pimples.
If this is your first time reading my blog and want to know more about my experience with the initial breakout, please start reading at Day 25.
Until next time... hopefully it gets better from here.
