Before I start, here's something about me and my acne experience:
I've been having this on-and-off battle with acne since 2004. I'ved tried everything - from tree tea oil to birth control pills to dan's regimen. Prior to birth control pills, I've tried most of the overthecounter acne products, which obviously didn't work for me. Start off with birth control pills, my doctor prescribed me with alesse in 2005. I'm not sure if it was the pills but my skin was clear after 3 months. (after a disgusting initial break out) I stopped after my 5th cycle and my skin remained clear until the next round of battle with acne in 2006. I was devastating so I tried dan's regimen. I also had a REALLY bad intital break out. But it was worth it. I had clear skin for around 2 years. I thought I found a cure to my acne problem. I guess not. I moved to another country last year for school purpose. It was fine at the beginning but I've been slowly breaking out since Dec 2009. I tried to increase the amount of bp, but that didn't work. I have been eating healthy, and that didn't work either. Recently, I went to see the derm and he prescribed me with some antibodies and acne cream (DUAC). Not sure if it helps because I'm still breaking out but I'm willing to stick with the treatment for now. I've also had three cortisone injections for my cysts, and on top of that, I'm taking 10mg of B5 everyday for 2 weeks.
I guess I'm finally opening my own blog because I need a place to write. I've became an anti-social and neurotic person in the past few months, and it's time to do something about it. I hate this feeling bceause I used to be sociable and hardworking in school. I'm no longer attending social events and I'm skipping school on a regular basis. I'm going home in a few weeks after exams. Recently, I have strange feelings about the idea of going home because I don't know how to confront the people who love and care for me. All I need is hope, and frankly speaking, I'm losing it.
anyways, today I saw a new HUGE zit (probably another cyst) on my face on top of the persistent number of cysts/nodules and whiteheads. How depressing.
