So I had a horrible last 2 months. I went from normal skin with minor breakout here and there to my entire faced cover in acne! I really think it happened because of a chemical peel I had done on March 22nd. It was all down hill from there. I was given Doryx and Retin A from one doctor... something didn't feel right though and I got a new derm. She gave me Bactrim, Atralin gel & Ovace face wash. I was allergic to Bactrim and was swithced to solodyn 45mg. My face was getting worse! So she upped it to 65mg! I was patient and gave it time to heal... around 5 weeks I finally saw improvement and now about to be at 8 weeks I have two pimples! That are healing! I have minor rolling scars on my cheeks (I don't know if I'm going crazy, but i think the scars are getting better each day) I believe and a million red marks... they are healing and now easy to cover with make up! I just tried to keep positive the entire time and eat healthy! One thing that heaped me waas to not look at mirrors and just think my face was back to normal. My face hurt so bad though and was so itchy! It was horrible!

Here are my after pictures lol. My before is in my gallery! I swear it's a miracle I have cleared up! I didn't think this day would ever come or so fast!

Right side...

Front (one pimple under right eye )

Left... another one by my ear

Everyone just needs to stick to one thing and keep at it for a month or two before they decide to give up! Antibiotics will work! You just have to be patient!!

Wow that is amazing! I am so happy for you, must feel really really good to see such positive results. It is good to stick out regimens at least a couple of months. I am hoping to get positives results one day. Hoping these probiotics do the trick, if not then i guess i will try the bactrim eek.

BTW your eyes are so beautiful and of course so are u ;) Congrats! Keep us posted if it continues to work out for you. :clap:
