So my insurance didn't pay for Doxycycline but it did pay for Minocycline which is the same exact thing pretty much. I've been on it for 6 weeks now, my doctor gave me a 3 month supply and she said by the end of it my skin should be significantly clearer, that it would help my active acne and my lesions, so far it's not going so well. My skin texture is smoother but I'm still getting big painful pimples, she told me I wouldn't have a "purge" phase while on this. And everytime a pimple leaves a deep pink scar is left behind, my face has NEVER scarred like this. At this point I just feel hopeless, my self confidence is the lowest it's EVER been. I can't get back in until April so I really don't know what to do. I feel like my last hope is Accutane, I've never had cystic acne until now and I feel like that would be the only thing to get rid of it. I remember when I NEVER wore makeup, now I have to wear it everyday to feel comfortable. I know they say beauty is skin deep but I'm just so sad. I'll keep updated if anything changes.
