Hi everyone, I thought I'd keep a log of my bp nightmare/progress.....so here goes!
So Im 24 and so far I have been on Diannette for 7 months with little improvement and I am now on my 4th week of minocycline, that isnt helping much either!
I have also tried clean and clear advantage with salicyclic acid, acnease (waste of time) acnescript not really helping, collodial silver, tea tree, freederm...the list goes on!!
I only drink water and green tea, dont drink alcohol or fizzy stuff, no dairy and lots of fruit veg salmon and chicken.
I take a acidphilus, multivitamin, omega 3 fishoil, lecethin, msm, starflower oil and vitamin c every day.
So anyway...my sisters wedding and my second graduation next month so desperate times!!
I ordered dans products - the cleanser, treatment and moisturiser but was scared about starting. Then 6 nights ago I found my panoxyl 2.5 in the drawer, never stuck out using it before! so i used it and for 3 days my skin was ok, then it got irritated and flakey so on the 4th night i switched to dans bp. Im using cetaphil gentle cleanser as it is good at removing make up with a cotton pad and im using eucerin moisturiser.
My skin is really dry and tight right now, hoping this will pass soon! hate peeling my skin off! only using a tiny amount in the evening and not doing it in the morning just yet.
Tonight my face did not sting when i put on moisturiser which it has done for a few nights but i didnt put it around my mouth this evening as this is where it is the most irritated. Thankfully I dont have to go out muh for the next few days, only to drop my daughter off at school so it can stay dry and flakey!
Anybody in the UK that can reccommend a moisturiser they think is better that eucerin feel free!! really not wanting to use dans as too many people have said bad things about it! waiting for jojoba oil to arrive in the post, any tips on that would be great too!!
I will update as often as I can...
Right now I have 1 nasty spot on my chin which is bad coz i tried squeezing it - naughty! lots of little bumps on right side of chin, 1 random little bump on my head which doesnt want to to anything and two comming up on my chin, not sure how they are going to go just yet!!
keep u posted...all comments, advice, support and criticisms welcome!
