10Th Week

Amanda4747

585 views

My skin is healing from the break out I just had for the past 2 weeks! It made my skin get to its worst... I have a lot of red and purple marks from them. They were nodules that wouldn't surface or go away. Finally, they surfaced though. Now my skin looks all irritated from them surfacing and healing... I'm so lucky to have a boyfriend that loves me for who I am.. I my skin is at its worst it ever been.. hopefully, it all goes up from here.

Hi there! I started Ziana about 7 weeks ago ( end of November 2014) with 100 mg of minocycline every night. I had crystal clear skin before due to doxycycline and epiduo but I became resistant I guess because I slowly started getting some breakouts. The derm prescribed me Ziana and mino but I don't know how I have felt about it. My skin is mild to moderate and I haven't really seen much improvement. It's worse than when I was on epiduo but better than before I was ever on any treatment so I don't really know how to feel. So I'm about 1.5 months into it and still get a small pimple or two everyday. I've read mixed reviews about Ziana and just really really really want good skin again by April 1 (going on vacation). So does Ziana just take a really long time to kick in or should I be switching products? I went to the derm last week for a check up but she said it was too soon to tell if it was working or not. Very frustrating!!!

Regimen:

-Cetaphil oil control foam wash

-tea tree oil

-small dab of Ziana

-cetaphill oil control moisturizer

After 2 months of being on Ziana and Solodyn, my derm upped my dosages. So, I started using Atralin, Aczone, and Solodyn 80mg. Two months after that is when my skin started being clear. Now, I am just dealing with the hyperpigmentation left from the acne.
