Yasmin

SeamlessSea

450 views

So I am writing this blog to keep a log of my acne. Basically I have had acne all my life, been on accutane 3 times, atleast 5 different antibiotics and within 3 months my acne will always return. Right now I have just returned to university and my acne is at its worst and i mean its WORST.

I am absolutely covered in redness, whiteheads, cystic acne around my jaw/chin, my nose is covered in huge pores and blackheads. I have 0 self esteem and I can't even let my boyfriend visit me as I am that embarrassed and I dont even want to leave the house.

I am on Day 2 of Yasmin and Day 5 of taking lymecycline alongside, however I know lymecycline does not work for my acne completely as I have taken it before I know that it does help to reduce the bigger white heads,I am hoping the combination of the two will work then I can continue on Yasmin alone.

So day 2, I am at my worst, I have had 3 new cystic acne spots since taking yasmin and 3 large white heads on my cheeks, I realise this is going to take a while to see a improvement.

I am going to be posting updates every few days so hopefully I see a improvement soon as right now I just want to cry.

Good luck. It helps to track your progress with pics to see what works/what doesn't. Steady as she goes.

IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU ARE BEING TOO HARD ON YOURSELF. :strongsad:  BUT I CANT BLAME YOU. I NEVER THOUGHT THAT IN LESS THAN 6 MONTHS I WOULD DEVELOP SEVERE ACNE, BUT WELL IT HAPPEN. I KNOW ITS EASIER SAID THAN DONE, BUT YOUR BOYFRIEND SHOULD UNDERSTAND, INST IT ABOUT THE GOOD AND THE BAD? AM SURE HE LOVES YOU BECAUSE THIS HAS BEEN A STRUGGLE FOR YOU BEFORE AND HE HAS BEEN THERE FOR YOU, DON'T PUSH HIM AWAY, TALK TO HIM AND LET HIM KNOW YOU NEED HIS HELP. :comfort:
& YOU SAID 3 ACCUTANE COURSES? WHAT DOSAGE HAVE THEY HAD YOU ON? THATS INSANE
