Is this medicine really working?



Hello Everyone ...this is my first "attempt" at posting a blog. I decided that I wanted to share all of my experiences and product reviews with everyone. I truly believe in the saying, "what's good for me may not be good for you." & vice versa.

Okay, so let's get started. I'm a 24 year old female, light combination, very sensitive skin, italian-austrian-lithuanian descent. I started to develop mild acne lesions around my mouth about 3-4 years ago. Since then my acne has gone from mild to moderate and sometimes severe. I also developed cystic acne especially around the mouth (ugh i hate it!)

I have tried COUNTLESS numbers of products from so many professional lines! My least favorite was Clinique and Murad. I found that these two lines irritated and clogged my pores (specifically around the cheeks). My favorites so far are EMERGE LABS skincare. I find the purifying clay mask to leave a beautiful glow immediately after use. Non- irritating. I just started to use the SHIRA camfor mask. So we shall see. Has anyone tried?

I went to see an endocrinologist and he prescribed me 250mg Erthromycin 2x daily with 100MG spirolactone 1x daily. It took about 2 months for me to see any results and once i saw some..my face developed new lesions which made me feel like i regressed. Now I increased the spiro to 100mg 2x daily. Not sure how I feel about the antibiotics...Does anyone think it helps? Please, send me some feedback.
