End of the road



I'm on day 30 and I had a doctor's Appointment. Just a normal physical because I'm going for my drivers permit. She took one look at me, and I could tell, all she saw was my acne. She asked if I was using anything and I told her some products I tried, but that I had stopped using them because they didn't work. First thing she did was prescribe a antibiotic to kill the bacteria inside that was causing it. Then she prescribed a gel that you put on the acne that  speeds up cell turnover. She told me to take these pills and when I finish the bottle I m done. Then I didn't get the gel because it's an over the counter thing, so she recommended a product called OXY 10 which is a benzoyl peroxide face wash. I was leary to use this but I'm going to give it a try. Needless to say, the caveman didn't work for me. It may work for others, but not for me. Which I should have known because I have acne on my shoulders and back too. Anyway, I'm hoping this will work. I wouldn't discredit the caveman, it was a good learning experience. But I think moderation is better then abstinence. She also said that using the gentle Dove soap bar as a cleanser after I sweated is great because it moisturizes on it's own and doesn't have hash fragrances. I'm glad she said something, but I'm also embarrassed that it had to get to this point. I wish my parents would have said something. Anyway, I'm gonna be optimistic about this new routine and we'll see how it goes. I'll probably start a new blog about it.
