Day 0- Feeling Frustrated!

Hi guys and girls!

I'm 28 and have been suffering with acne on and off for over 10 years.

I've attached some pics of my current outbreak.

I've pretty much been on every medication available except Roaccutane.

The only medication i've used in the past which has completely cleared my skin long term is Dianette. However my doctor will not prescribe me this anymore as I occasionally have migranes with aura and apparently this heightens my chance of a stroke.

VERY FRUSTRATING

My current regime is:

AM: Wash with Clinique Blemish Solutions foam cleanser, then I use Clinique City Block Sheer SPF 25 before applying make up.

I use Clinique Blemish Solutions foundation and concealer.

PM: I use Cetaphil cleanser to remove eye make up then cleanse with Clinique foam cleanser. I then apply Differin/Adapalen cream and take anti biotic Tetralysal/lymecycline. If my skin feels tight then i use a little Clinique dramatically different lotion.

I have been following this regime for 6 weeks with minimal improvement so I went to see my doctor today and he told me to swap Differin for Dalacin T topical solution.

Anyone out there using Dalacin T lotion (erythromycin)in combination with Tetralysal/lymecycline? I'd love to hear from you!

Hey,

I've been using tetracycline since around September. I've seen some improvements I think the term id use is that my skin has "slowed down" with the cysts but I stil get really bad breakouts. I can't give you any info on dalacib T but I have been on antibiotics with epiduo. Good luck :)
