I am just really irritated and so depressed at this point. I have been on retinoids for 7 months now and I have not noticed a change in my acne. I have tried over the counter products, derm products including: Differin 0.3%, Avar cleanser, Clindamycin 1% Solution, Clindamycin/BP cream, Tazorac (all of them), Panoxyl 4%, and Retin-A 1% (currently on right now). I tried Clearzine pills and taking multivitamins, but since my stomach is very sensitive these things keep upsetting my stomach, and making me feel very sick. Ever since I have started my Ulcerative Colitis medication Apriso my acne has gotten out of control. I break out everyday, it can be 1-3 blemishes, up to 6 or 7. It is really embarrassing because I am the only one in my family dealing with this issue. I have a twin sister (whose skin is almost flawless)and we are constantly compared, this also plays an issue in my depression. I need help with this. I don't want to live my life as a recluse, but so far it seems like it is going to be that way until I can get this issue under control. I try to avoid staying at school as much as possible because I don't want to be around people too long. I have one late class this semester so I have to make sure I apply a shit load of makeup to last through a 3 hour class. I am also so sick of makeup, if my skin ever gets clear I am going to throw away all of my makeup products!! That is how much I hate doing makeup to cover up my skin. It is ridiculous trying to put on makeup in the morning and having to fix my hair where it covers my face so my skin looks descent enough for me to be in public. It takes too much time to do and makes me realize how hideous I look. As of right now my routine is using Simple Wipes, Cetaphil Anti-bacterial bar, Neutrogena Acne Defense Lotion, and Retin-A 1%. I just found out that I can't use Benzoyl Peroxide because I keep having an allergic reaction to it, I have very sensitive skin. If anyone has any suggestions or any help in dealing with this please please comment.
