Helpp!!! Bad initial breakout on BP, need to get it under control by next week

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. I'm a 25 year old woman and have been suffering with moderate acne for my entire adult life...I normally use Duac in the morning and Differein at night -- recently switched my cleanser from Clenia (made my face smell like sulfer -- disgusting) to Johsnon&Jonson's Purpose. Anyhow, I've always managed to keep it under control and my main trouble spots have always been my forehead, nose, and chin. A week ago I started on BC pills -- Reclipsen (not soley to treat my acne) for my very first time and after six days, I'm already seeing an initial breakout...but oddly, on my cheeks, rather than the usual trouble spots, which strangely, have remained clear...I've rarely ever had pimples on my cheeks before. Normally I get a few cystic zits, but this seems to be more of a cluster of small pimples, so I can't even treat it with cortizone shots! I'm extremely upset because I've recently started dating a guy and will be seeing him in a week (long distance) ... I want to get this under control before I see him. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!!!
