I Went To The Dermo!

Sign in to Follow  


So I went to the dermatologist yesterday, and the doctor told me I had bacterial acne. So she prescribed me a oral medication called Minocycline that I have to take twice a day. Then she told me to use an over the counter face wash called Cetaphil that I wash my face with twice a day. And also (lol) I have to put an ointment on called Adapalene. To get used to the ointment because it can be drying I have to do it every 3 days for 2 weeks than every 2 days for 2 weeks and than go to every day once a day. She made an appointment for me in 2 months and if it doesn't look any better she will decide if I need to try something stronger. I cant wait to see the results!:)

That's great that you got to the dermatologist! I haven't been in years. Beware of antibiotics over a long period of time but know that they help acne greatly!! I personally don't like Cetaphil's face wash but I loooooove their moisturizer. I like Clean & Clear's Sensitive Foaming Facial Cleanser or Purpose cleanser!

Keep up with your blog and I hope that you find exactly what works for you!! :)
