I'm a bit discouraged.
It's been 127 days on this regimen...and I just started Week 19. In just another couple of weeks, I'll have been on it for 5 months total.
Right now, I have a pink mark on my left cheek, two small ones on my chin, one on my right cheek, and one on my right lower jawline.
The Benzoyl Peroxide face wash (PanOxyl 4% in the AM) is drying my face out a bit, but making things start to heal; plus, it's killing the bacteria on my skin. I've been using the Atralin (Retin-A gel 0.05%, but not on the spots of skin that are really sensitive/red. I'm still taking the Spironolactone (75 mg/day) and the Ortho Tri-cyclen birth control each morning.
To wash my face, I'm still using the CeraVe Moisturizing Facial Cleanser and then moisturizing with the CeraVe Moisturizer (am and pm). Then, at night, I'm applying extra moisturizer and vaseline over these spots.
I'm trying to get back into the groove again with eating tons of veggies, fruits, whole grains, fish, and lean protein. Also, I'm taking a multi-vitamin again and drinking tons of water. Hoping this helps my skin heal and get clear!
