azelaic acid



giving up on trying to have diet controlled skin with caster oil.jojoba.

My skin has gotten worse so I am admitting defeat at the moment.

Maybe I could refine my regimen and have a stricter diet but I have to accept acne is a condition and I would like to be clear(er) by the time I go to a festival.

I went to see a gp today who was very keen to get me to see a dermatologist, she respected my choices about accutane and about hormones saying herself she turns into a crazy person on hormones.

we talked careers too, after discussing my research and stating exactly why I wanted the treatement I asked for she asked if I had considered joining (being a doctor). I really have so that was a good discussion.

anyway its azelaic acid which is not usually prescribed... I don't know why cause from the research its just as good as retin-a or benzoyl peroxide but without bleaching stuff or killing babies so ???

research showed 15% gel was more effective than the 20% creama nd its got good reviews on here. I am really pale so lightening of the skin isnt an issue... I love being pale

my doc put twice a day application on the prescription which I only realised when I got out. I will apply it in the morning only at first and see how I get used to it. then twice for a while but long term i'd like to use it once a day so my boyfriend never swallows any...

wisk me luck :pray:
