Because I complained that my spironolactone exclusive regimen may not be working, my dermatologist referred me to another doctor...I am very nervous and hurt...she was my dermatologist for over 10 years...and she pretty much cleared my skin up. As long as I use my entire regimen, I barely breakout:
Step A. Wash face with dial antibacterial soap. Dry face with soft clean towel.
Step B. Apply pea size amounts of topical clindamycin and topical tretinoin. Wait three hours.
Step C. Wash face with dial antibacterial soap. Pat face with dry clean towel.
Step.D Apply Benzaclin. Wait three hours.Wash face with antibacterial soap or purpose gentle face cleanser,
Step E. Re-apply pea size amount of topical clindamycin and topical tretinoin. Wait three and half hours. Wash face with purpose gentle face cleanser.
Step F. Re-apply benzaclin. Wait three hours. Wash face with gentle purpose cleanser.
Step G.Re-apply topical clindamycin and sleep. Good night!
Antibiotics and spironolactone:
6:00AM take 1,000mg of cephalexin
11:00Am take 100mg of spironolactone
12:30pm take 1,000mg of cephalexin.
She wanted me to quit taking anti-biotics and the moment I went on a lower dose of anti-biotic I got two cysts on my face, which if Spironolactone is working so well, "why did I get them?" I want my skin clear...Having cysts is unacceptable to me and I would've thought my dermatologist would be on my side...I am so sad...but I'll get over it. I just have to remember what my goal is, which is to defeat acne not kiss my doctor's ass...
I have an appointment with a new derm on August 28th or 29th I have to confirm that...wish me luck!
