Well Well Well... It Begins. Day 1



I have had mild acne since middle school. At 18 my acne exploded, I kept telling my self that it could be so much worse, just be thankful you don't have a real pizza face. Guess what... It got worse. Now I am 22 and for the past few months my faces has erupted with cystic acne, I cant even look in the mirror anymore and decided to take online only classes until my acne situation improves.

I have previously tried amoxicillin for a month about a year ago. It helped a bit, I would say a 50 percent reduction In my acne. The migraines were too much though and I decided to stop taking it. Afterwords I used the ance.org treatment program for 8 months. For the first 3 months it actually helped a lot, never attained clear skin but it really made a difference. Unfortunately by month 4 my acne came back in full force, this time with lots of cystic acne. And so were are here today...

I plan on making this a little different then the usual blog. I am concerned about the possible side effects so I decided to pay for a CBC test every month, plus a basic kidney and liver test. I will post these results Thursday or Friday. I dont belive that taking isotretinoin for one day will affect my blood test, so I will consider this to be a baseline. Whoo! What a fun science experiment this will be lol.

First, Day 1 Pictures, Lab results will come soon.

Amoxicillin shouldn't be causing headaches. I am not sure those two things are causally related. I have been using amoxicillin for three years and I have one zit every two months. It works like hell to get rid of cystic acne. I have not had a cyst in over a year. I got one last week. It is already healing. I treated it with hydrogen peroxide to kill the infection. It is a gross weird scab now. Hands off!
