Next Step



I spoke to my dermatologist on the phone the other day.

Since I can't make up my mind about accutane/my acne has got better on this new BC I'm trying, I'm gonna be on antibiotics for about 50 days, until after christmas holidays etc. Hopefully it will kill the remaining acne for good. Although I have tried it before without any major success.. I'm giving it another go!! Keep your fingers crossed people :)

Thanks think I need some of that :)

I can't remember the name of it, I haven't picked it up yet. It's one of those common ones for acne I think.

How's acne treating you? any success with treatments?

My skin's hit and miss to be honest. Awesome one week and horrible the next. Although, it's usually my fault because of picking. If I can quit that, I'd probably have a fighting chance of having good skin and not feeling so bad about it all the time because it gets to me very easily and life's pretty been on hold for years because of my acne-related insecurities, so I guess I've got a pretty good incentive to try and stop. Then I can get clear, build some confidence and essentially learn to like being me. I suppose all I can do is keep trying. That's all any of us can do and hope we get there eventually. :)

It's hard not picking!! Avoiding the mirror makes it easier :)

Ah i know that feeling too well.. We shouldn't let acne put us off doing things but it does.

You're not on any topicals or antibiotics at the moment then?

Hope it works out for you. try not picking ;)
