Recent Trip To The Derm

So I went on Friday to see the derm for my accutane followup. This was before starting my fifth and final month. Most of my acne is gone but there's still a little. It went something like this:

Him: Hmmm... Well, it looks like the acne is trying to fight the meds.

Me: You're telling me... But, there's been a giant improvement.

Him: True. But it'd be nice if you didn't have to deal with it at all. At any rate, you still have another month to go through. After that your face will continue to improve for another two months and then plateau.

He gave me the script for my last month of Accutane. He also gave me a perscription for other stuff if I needed it later(benzyl peroxide, triaz clenser, roll on stuff and antibiotics) . Antibiotics never seem to help. He gave me minocycline again, which gave me drug-induced hyper-sensitivity lupus before. At least I caught it...

I just hope I'm totally clear by the end of the month.
