I'm right there with you. We must have started around the same time. I would love to know the answers to these questions as well! :rolleyes:

Oh man the first month for me was great, I didnt break out much worse then I usually would, I (naively) thought that I had been lucky and avoided a severe initial breakout but then sometime between the 2nd 3rd month I broke out severely, several times actually. I think I broke out severely 3 times during the 6 month course

edit: sorry for the bad news, but some people dont get an initial breakout at all, some people just get better and better as time goes on, you guys might be one of those people. :)
