The Begininng



I got acne after I got my first period. Its natures way of saying congratulations your a woman...now have some free acne. I probably went on for a year without going to the dermatologist for the first time. I had first started out with tiny bumps on my for head so it wasn't that bad but they got worse and began to grow. I didn't realize how bad it was until my sister one day took a picture of my face with flash. The picture definitely made me feel bad about my skin and I began to cry. I was 13 at the time. Then I went to the dermatologist and she prescribed ziana gel. It took about six weeks for my for head to start clearing up but then the skin under my eyes began to breakout with cycstic acne. I probably stayed on the ziana gel for three months. I then changed my dermatologist because the first one didn't seem to care much about her patients. My second dermatologist really seemed to know what she was doing and I was happy but my skin was still nasty.I've been through 5 topical cremes in 3.5 years. All which showed to work for a few months but then got even worse. Ive also taken doryx, an oral medication, through the 3.5 years in different doses. The last time my skin was flawless was in summer 2013. After that my skin just got worse. In January I started to get cheek acne and it got really bad really fast. I remember crying every time I looked at my face in the mirror. Around august of this year I began to get severe chin acne. It was also cycstic and extremely dry. I couldn't tell when I got a new zit because it was just so bumpy. I started epiduo in march and it also seemed to worked but my skin went crazy after three months. I recently started ortho tri cyclen lo which is birth control and I'm hoping for the best. Wish me luck
