Should I take?



So I went to the derm today. I called 3 months ago to schedule an appt, when I was clear, thinking that I could get laser therapy. I told him that this breakout is very recent (within the last 2 weeks) where as before I was 99% clear. I see him in october for laser therapy consult. He can't perform laser therapy unless I'm clear...

He prescribed Duac and Veltin. Duac I guess has 5% BP and 1% clindamycin. I'm cautious about using the duac because of the BP.... but I'm supposed to use in the morning. Veltin is combination of clindamycin and tretinoin, and I'm supposed to use at night. At least he gave me samples so I can try before I spend ridiculous money on prescriptions.

Anyways, still optimistic about my skin...I know what triggered it and know what will get me clear. I'm really missing my boyfriend, and trying not to think that it may be a year until I see him again...

Off to studying.
