Trying So Hard To Be Good! :)

Leanna123

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.

Just do what your dermatologist says and don't OD on antibiotics. That can't be good for you.

The tribe has spoken.

I picked up some Cetaphil moisturizer with SPF 30 today! I'm hoping it works nicely! I'll keep you posted!

Also, I was on so many different antibiotics over the years, and eventually I became immune to them all. Or at least I think so, because they eventually stopped working. Long term antibiotic usage is also bad for the liver. But then again so is Accutane...lol. Good luck!

Thanks runner7891. I need luck. My skin has calmed down since I reduced my antibiotic intake and added a moisturizer. I was actually gonna blog tonight about how the breakout subsided. I think the spiro is working and my immune system is taking over some of what amoxicillin used to handle. I had an IB of sorts. I think you will love the cetaphil moisturizer with oil control. :)
