Day 40 - Purging Like Crazy --Help :(

hope2013

506 views

The past few days have been ROUGH.

My upper right cheek purged, my left cheek, then to the right of my chin, followed by the top right of my forehead (near my hairline).

UGH.

Now the area above my lip is purging and my left cheek & lower chin seem to be next.

  • Actives
    • 2 above my lip--one is pretty big and inflamed under the skin
    • One clogged pore on my right cheek (in the middle near my laugh line) that looks like it'll purge later today or tomorrow.
    • 1 on my right lower jawline under my jaw (not noticeable to others really, so I'm fine with it there)
    • New Marks
      • 1 small mark on my right cheek (near my laugh line)-- purged today
      • 1 on my left temple near my hairline --purged today
      • 1 small pore on my forehead (top right) --purged today

      [*]Healing Marks

      [*]1 on my left cheek that is still really pink :/

      [*]1 below my nose to the left (near my laugh line) that's bright pink, but healing

      [*]1 pretty bad huge mark below my lip on the right side (from messing with a pore that was about to purge)...the skin here was thinner and more sensitive, so it may take longer to heal

      [*]1 on my forehead (right side near hairline)...again--I messed with this pore the other day, making it worse.

      I'm so bummed about all this...and getting my cycle tomorrow for the first time since I've been on this regimen (6 weeks) so I'm sure that will make it worse.

      I emailed my Dermatologist to ask if prescribing an antibiotic for a couple of weeks would help :/ we'll see what she says.

      Please pray for me to get through this tough time :(

      My self-confidence, patience, and attitude is just about shot

Keeping you in prayer Hope. The first few months are a tough battle but once you get into the pattern of the highs and lows, it gets easier. Keep on keeping on sistah

Thanks girl! This is so hard...i'm just emotionally tired of dealing with acne for all these years. I'm close to being on this regimen for 42 days, or 6 weeks...I have my eyes set on 2 months (8 weeks) and 3 months (12 weeks)...

Just need to try to see the good in all of this!
