My complexion keeps improving. My current regimen includes five major drugs. Orally I take 1,500mg of Amoxicillin daily; I use topical benzaclin, a hard hitting blast of benzoyl peroxide topped off with a cool anti-biotic gel and I end the day with topical clindamycin which I mix with tretinoin cream at bed time.
My history with acne has been a horror story. I used to have so much cystic pustules that my face looked deformed. I used to cake on the cover up too. I am a woman you know. I also had weird "cures" that I came with on my own like steaming my pores open and then smoothing citrus oil on my face. Nuts! I know.
Now I use very normal medications every day. I think the key to my success has been having a great team of doctors supporting me. My face responds very well to treatments so I wont be using accutane but I am glad its available for those who need it.
It has taken me a full two years to beat acne down enough for my skin to appear normal. Acne-------> <------Me
