Day 6 - ...breakout?



So my right cheek is basically free of active spots, but the scars are definitely still there. My left cheek, however, has decided to give me grief and breakout a tad. I have two spots on my cheek and two on my jaw, but they are monsters. Also, my chin has a few new tiny whiteheads, but those'll probably be gone or nearly gone int he morning. I have some little emerging spots on my nose, and one of those little painful ones right where my nostril meets my face, and that will ideally go away ASAP...

As for the doxycycline, I'm feeling confident. I think I'm starting to see some results, especially considering how quickly my right cheek cleared up. I haven't had many other side effects since the last ones I mentioned (aside from feeling a little rumbly in my gut now, an hour after taking it before bed). Combined with my newly-replenished regimne items, my scars are fast fading--especially where I don't seem to break out anymore on my forehead and chin--and the acne is manageable.

I'm tired, so I'll end here. Oh wait, I also spot treated with the Mint Julep mask again today.

To clear skin!

I took doxycyline and Amoxicillin and the amoxicillin is tolerable at a much higher dose and it clears my skin totally. The only downside I guess is that if I stop taking it I am right back where I started. I would much rather do accutane but I don't think my dermatologist will do it.
