May 6 , 2010 Derma visit



May 6, 2010, I went to see my derm, and when he saw me, he said I should get the corticosteroid injection to bring down the inflammation. I had NEVER ever had those injections before, because I had never had cystic acne this bad. So he gave me 4-5 shot on my big group of acne , and told me that they will go down by tommorrow. Then he also gave me a SA 20% peel, put me on Minocyclin 100 mg once a day and a tretinoin 0.01% gel. I really didn't want to take any more pills, I think they are maybe bad for the liver, but I really needed to bring down this inflammtion fast! The derm also said that to start tretinoin every other night to avoid the IB. So, I've started to take the Minocyclin on May 6, and the gel on May 7... hoping tp get clear soon.
