And the heat is on! 3 weeks into consistent nightly use of differin and I am getting more under the skin bumps that take a while to surface. A lot of them start of as clogged pores and then suddenly, they are huge, red and very tender to the touch. Yowza. The last few days my acne had been somewhat calmer with not too many large bumps but tonight I noticed 2 huge ones pop up next to 4 more healing ones so I am bummed to say the least. Purging is a biotch from what i remember so i'l just have to suck it up and try to stay as positive as I can. My eating has been so-so so I need to get back to basics. Also, I have been going to the bathroom pretty regularly so I am excited about that. As for supplements, still on the same regimen and I check in with my naturopath next Wednesday so I will update then. I've noticed that my periods as of late have been less painful (but still painful) so maybe I am heading in the right direction with this hormonal stuff. The consensus for both topicals and supplements seems to be 3 months or more of consistent use so i guess that by the end of March/beginning of April i can evaluate to see if things are working or not.
Wishing this process would go a bit faster.
