Week Three (New Treatment)




Solodyne 65mg / day

Ziana Gel PM

Tetrinoin Gel AM

Cetaphil Moisturizing Cleanser

Cetaphil Moisturizing Sunblock

Symptoms: Headaches, occassional but harsh - could possibly be intracranial swelling which is a side effect. Itchy scalp - may not be related.

Experience: By week three, 90% of imflammed acne has completely subsided. I have not had a large pustule or cyst come up since starting Solodyne treatment. I only have small, typical blemishes that fade away rather quickly (sometimes overnight). I think this type of breaking out is due to Ziana Gel, which is purging dirt and oil out of my pores. Still, it has not caused a notable breakout and overall my skin looks healthier and the PIH is slowly fading with the use of Ziana. I really like Ziana and will use as long as it remains effective. If I keep moving in this direction, I don't see me having to go on Accutane and will continue using Solodyne for three months before my derm weens me off of it. The side effects are not considerable compared to the effectiveness of Solodyne; although I loathe headaches.
