I FEEL LIKE GIVING UP Day 24 - August 14, 2016



Here are pictures- IT KEEPS GETTING WORSE!!! UGH I don't know what to do. I am 3 weeks into Tazorac so is this the worst of it? Ever since I started trying to make my skin better it only has been getting worse. Something I did notice that idk if I wrote about yet- The side of my face that I sleep on is the side with more acne. I have always slept on this side- why is is only starting to cause problems right now? Also- at what time do I re-evaluate what I am doing? At what point can I give up or try something new? Tazorac (mine is 0.05%) seems to work for a lot of people, and I don't know if it will work for me or not. School is starting soon and I was hoping that at least by now I would have clear skin :(((((((








Your pillowcase can cause or contribute to your acne. Be sure to change it frequently and make sure it is smooth to reduce any possible irritation. Laundry detergent can also contribute to acne in some cases.

Stay strong hun.  3 months is the minimum time you need to give any new treatment and that is 3 months of continuous everyday use.  If by 4-6 months you are not noticing  any improvement, then revisit your derm to modify treatment.    Ive been struggling for 17 years so i know how frustrating it can be .  Keep that timeline in your head and try to ignore your skin as much as you can.  How's the diet?  Diet has never worked for me but i do believe that a healthy diet will help your health which can help the healing process move faster.
