Day 79 - So I finally saw my dermatologist..



A few days ago, I went to my dermatologist.

He said he could see improvement. My forehead is more or less clear.

That might be true, but I have a fringe anyway, so I don't really care that much.

He admitted that my neck, the part just under my ears, still looks pretty awful. Foundation seems to hide most of it nowadays though. But still, it's not very nice. My shoulders aren't exactly attractive either. And there are still some spots on my arms as well.

My chin has always been quite unpredictable. Sometimes it stays clear for weeks, and then suddenly like 25 spots appear out of nowhere. That hasn't changed at all. It's okay right now though. My cheeks are still in the same state as well. Not a lot of spots - just no flawless, even skin.

My cheekbones are terrible, as always. (Well, that's not true actually. My cheekbones used to be completely clear. I only had acne on my forehead, chin and shoulders when I was younger. It just got a lot worse about 1.5 year ago.. :/)

My hair's really REALLY dry now. I used to wash it every other day, sometimes even every day. I haven't washed it in 5 days now. Sounds disgusting, but it's not greasy at all. It just keeps getting dryer. I will wash it tomorrow though, just for the sake of it.

He (my dermatologist) thought about putting me on 40mg/day instead of 30, but decided against it in the end. He thought it was too risky because I wear contacts. And because I don't have severe acne, just moderate. Very persistent moderate acne though. He told me it would take a lot longer to clear my skin - I'm on a 8 month-course - but it would in the end. I can only hope it's true.
