Day 20-21



Sorry I didn't update yesterday was busy as usual. I say that my skin is looking a little better because it was very red the previous days and took a while to settle down again. But now on my right cheek some pimples that I had popped previously before have flared out again. I am able to cover a few of them up but they will always be a little noticeable. Since I've hit the three week mark I just hope that this treatment works out for me in the end. My lips are very dry and if I don't continue to apply often they go red and gross around the edges. I guess all I can do is wait it out and see the changes every week and continue my everyday life. I know when you have bad skin it seems like you don't want to do anything or go anywhere but that will just make it worse, so never exclude yourself (it will actually make you forget about your skin for a while) Thank you for reading.

Try amoxicillin and cephalexin. Once I started those two antibiotics my skin cleared enormously. You have take them continuously though. That is the downside. Also try benzaclin or Duac. I also use tretinoin and topical clindamycin. It is a daily battle with acne. I always try to prevent the next breakout. I am concerned that you use popping to clear your skin but actually popping can spread the infection to other pores. The infected pore ruptures when you squeeze it and the bacteria go into the pore next to it and into the surrounding tissue. Popping also exacerbates scarring. Good luck and stop pop!
