I'm happy to say that I don't have any pimples. I'm acne-free at the moment. Last week I did have a small break out. But I healed rather quickly now. My skin texture, pigmentation, and scars aren't that great though, but I'm not complaining. I have high hopes that they will eventually improve with the atralin gel. I really can't say enought abut this gel! It has worked great so far! The combination of being dairy free, using spiro, and atralin have given me great results! And I'm still drinking a lot of water.
I do want to note that I was not very good about drinking water for about a week, especially during the 4th of July weekend. I either drank tea or juice. I did notice the my back (flanks) on both the left and right sides were hurting. Tuesday, July 5th I used the bathroom and noticed the toilet paper had pinkish urine. I was suprised. I did have very slight discomfort and a headache so I figured that is I had signs/symptoms of a UTI. The next day I had diarhea. I went to the doctor after work. I still had a headache, had very slight stinging when I peed, plus I wasn't feeling very well overall. The test came back negative for UTI, but the doctor still presribed an antibiotic for a possible UTI because I had all the signs and symtoms. I think it's all very unusuall. I really didn't want to take an antibiotic, but oh well. I'm feeling better. I just hope it's not something else or that I'm pregnant especially while taking spiro.
