3 Days Into Treatment

Since I was 15 I struggled with acne. My active acne wasn't the biggest problem though, I have very sensitive skin that scars easy. So although I may only have a few active pimples at a time, my face looks like one big, red scar. I've tried everything. Every face wash at the store, every Proactive system, and everything I could find over the internet. 3 days ago, I decided enough was enough and took a trip to my doctor's office. He told me I have moderate-severe acne that is very inflamed.

This is what I was prescribed:

50MG Doxycycline twice daily

Clindamycin PH 1% in the morning

Trentinoin (Retin-A) 0.025% at night

I have been on this regimen for 3 days, so no big changes at all. All I have noticed is that I haven't woken up with any breakout like I normally would have, and my skin is not as oily as it was before! On the upside, I am experiencing no burning while applying the Tretinoin, no stomach problems related to the Doxycycline, and no excessively dry skin.

We'll see how this goes! If anyone has any tips, warnings, or questions, I'm here!
