Day 12

Well, the little spot is healing, the re-emerging one is still emerging and is bigger :( but not huge and last night I found 2 more small spots. I bought some ointment last week called UltraClear that had really good reviews on Amazon. I haven't had much chance to try it out because I've been unsure whether I should use it instead of BP. I have used it on a few small blemishes and it seemed to work really well, so I took a chance and used it instead of BP last night. I'm not sure it had much effect on the bigger one, but the two small ones looked smaller and one even came to a little head (so I popped it, of course!). Today I've gone back to the BP - maybe I'll alternate the days I use them. With my makeup on, my face looks almost completely clear apart from a few lumps - seems I've always got at least one lump. :(


I vote keep using BP. BP is an acne killer and preventer. Spot treatments only do half the job. I use 4 acne medications everyday and I am zit free. I use benzaclin, retin-a, clindamycin and amoxicillin.

I'm sure you're right. I guess that since my skin is relatively clear,I expected quicker results. Are all those meds on prescription? I don't think I'd get a prescription for anything right now; I've only got 2 spots. The antibiotics that I finished nearly a month ago did a good job of clearing up my skin, just gotta try to stop the one or two that seem to always crop up. Do you take any supplements?
