Still waiting

Sigh...my prescription did not come on Saturday, and I don't know if it will come today or tomorrow. Feeling pretty pissed off about it all. My skin is sooo awful right now. I've temporarily stopped with the BP as it's so drying; my clear skin is almost as red as the spotty skin. I've been re-reading my blog and have come to the conclusion that BP was probably the solution to getting my skin clear after I came off the first round of antibiotics. And it worked fairly quickly - 5 weeks is all it took before I stopped getting new spots. The problem I've had since then is that I've not gone back to it quick enough when I've started breaking out. If I had started back in October, when I got that first cyst, I'd probably be clear by now, but instead, I hoped it was a one-off and carried on with the lower strength creams (I've been using La Roche-Posay Effaclar A.I. Targeted Breakout Corrector) as well as salycilic acid on the spots themselves. I am now wondering if the salycilic acid just made things worse as one tiny spot on my lip eventually turned into a huge blemish....but maybe that would have happened anyway. So, for now, I've gone back to the AltaCleanse as I know it works to a certain extent. Not as good as BP for getting really bad skin cleared, but really good for keeping clear skin clear and obliterating small blemishes overnight.
I just hope that prescription shows up very soon!
