So i broke down today and used Aczone. Hoping it helps with this flare up of inflamation...yikes. I woke up with 4 more inflamatory pimples which i've been icing. So this brings the total inflamed count on my right side to around 12. Left side has 4 inflamed pimples and half a dozen smaller red bumps that are getting bigger by the day. I'm starting to wonder if something in the new moisturizer is breaking me out as there is a scent to it. I may ditch it and go back to cetaphil and just use the serum which has less stuff going on. My face looks worse than it did last summer as acne is concentrated in some places and they are damn huge! I'm dreading an outing i have for Saturday and Monday. I contacted my derm regarding possibly restarting accutane but i don't know if i want to deal with that. I feel like i'm between a rock and a hard place. I wish BP was still an option. I go for my 2nd facial on Tuesday.
I do believe i am getting some cystic action on my chin - definitely below the surface stuff....shyt! Made a derm appt for August 4th - will see if we create a completely new regimen OR go for something more drastic. Hating my skin right now.
