Never Mind



My au-naturale apporach failed me completely

I went back to the dermatologists in despair, received the news of my development of cystic acne (which I've never had) and received 5 cortisone shots along which a prescription for Doxycycline, Evoclin Foam, BPO Benzoyl Peroxide Wash, and still continuing Tazorac at night time.

I've been on Doxy once before and it worked so well with combination therapy with retinoid and topical antibiotic. I've been on doxy for about a week now and no noticable difference with the exception that my face is alot less red and dry. I still am breaking out with cysts, blackheads and whiteheads all over but I'm going to update this periodically to track my progress on Doxycycline and all these other Meds.

If this course of treatment doesn't work, accutane and hormonal therapy is the next option.

Here's hoping that the Doxy can clear me up enough and the topicals can take care of the rest from there on out (which worked splendidly a year ago)
