Week 7, Day 49 - Pictures



I cannot believe it is already week 7. Only 13 more to go!

My little spot has turned into a large spot on my face which makes three active pimples. It is my 2nd, breakout due to my dosage increase from 40mg to 80mg - I keep telling myself. I try to look at the positives like "the rest of my skin is super soft, the hyperpigmentation is lightening, I am definitely less oily, my KP is gone, people have complimented my skin etc".

But my dermatologist appointment tomorrow cannot come fast enough. I need some major extractions and cortisone injections.

I have posted some pictures of my 2nd initial breakout. You might need to cut and paste the link into your browser.

Hi,Thanks for posting your story. I am interested to see your pictures but can't view them for some reason, just wondered if any one else had that problem. I would love to find a derm that does the extraction and cortisone shot combo. Do you live in the US?

I think if you cut and paste the link into your browser you can see the pictures. I have attached the link but for some reason it does not attach. You can also search Acnegirl11 on Flickr.com where I have my pictures posted.I actually live in Canada, but most Dermatologists or Doctors who specialise in Acne do extractions and cortisone injections. They really do bring down inflamation of large pimples and cysts within 24 hours and I swear by them. I find when I get my spots injected they go away faster and leave less of a hyperpigmentation mark. But there is a cost involved I pay $30 CDN a visit and only $12 is covered by my private insurance. I am going in few hours - I will post today or tomorrow and let you know how it goes. I am glad my blog is helping you.
