I am trying so hard to be good. I am taking only the prescribed doses of all medications. That means three lousy amoxicillin pills per day. Thats down from 15 by the way. omg omg!! I have like a total of 5 zits right now! I am freaking out because I am no longer accustomed to breakouts. I have been pretty much clear for 3 years and then boom. My antibiotics stop working so I switch to spiro. Ok spiro at 100mg per day. I just feel like bacteria are over taking my face again. I feel like resorting to my old technique of taking as many amoxicillin as I can swallow; but it probably won't do any good anyway since the bacteria seem immune now. I have an appointment on Thursday to get some Birth control pills. Hopefully that goes well and I can push farther into hormonal treatments.
Also, my using of chlorhexidine gluconate seems to be a massive failure. My skin is so dry I look like I am 100yrs old. I am using copious amounts of moisturizer which will probably backfire on me! Life just sucks right now. I need a new regimen that works. I'll figure it out. It is like a survivor puzzle (you know like on the American show "Survivor" hosted by Jeff Probst)
I am going to keep trying to maintain clearer skin by using the prescribed amounts of all my medications and continue to use an oil-free acne prone skin oil control Cetaphil moisturizer with SPF 30.
