Week 1

Steph G


It has been one week since I started my medication. I am prescribed 30mg once a day for 2 weeks, and then twice a day after. 

So far so good. Nothing is drying out as of yet. As directed, I apply a quarter size of aquaphor on my face before bed (feels so gross) and I apply it on my lips as often as possible. I hope that by keeping my skin hydrated from the start, I'll never have to experience the drying side effects. 

I have noticed that I am a lot more tired throughout the day. I am not sure if this is due to the medicine or not. 

I have tried super hard not to pick my skin. I caught myself doing it a few times and I've notice that there is no inflammation afterwards. My skin also has some sort of glow it normally doesn't have and it definitely is not as oily as it use to be. My make up actually stays put. 
No new pimples. 

The double pictures show the improvement from 3 months ago on antibiotics and topical ointment only. The single pictures are where I am at now.
