First week on amnesteem

Hey all,

This is my first post on here. I am 23 years old and I have been suffering from acne since I was probably about 13. I dont think I have ever had breakouts this bad. I have attributed most of this acne to stress from work and my increased running. I started new job that has put some deadlines on me. I've been trying to cut up and lose some weight and try to get a six pack, so I've been running probably 3miles 5 days aweek.

I am 5'8" 180lbs and my derm has me taking 1 40mg capsule of amnesteem.

My face does not feel as oily and my lips are starting to chap. No side effects so far. I've been washing with neutrogena acne wash twice a day.

check out my album for the first 7 days:

Hey, welcome to the boards. :)

I was looking at your pics and I think you'll be clear in no time. I'm currently on Accutane, my last month, and it has helped me alot.

Goodluck.

thanks for the welcome. I really hope this clears. I just really blame it on stress from work and not getting enough sleep. Even when I was a student, I didnt get it this bad.

I work out a good bit, I just hope I dont get joint pain.

working out probaly makes it worse due to sweating.
