Day 8 - back on track...except my face looks...enough said

I called my derm today and she said to start taking the meds again and see how things go. The burning sensation in my abdomen subsided over the weekend. I'm going to stick with this and hope that if I get the burning again it will go away with time. I'm determined to make it through this. I haven't come this far to turn away defeated. My body will have to comply! Ok perhaps this isn't the most healthy attitude to have but I'm so tired of my face looking like this. I haven't left my apartment in three days now - thank God for winter break! Well, here we go...again...!!!

      I had acne similar to yours...what worked well for me was daily asprin masks and alternating egg white masks. For the asprin mark crush up 3-4 uncoated asprins and add a couple of drops of water- leave on for 30+ minutes. This mask really helped slow down how fast my acne "cycled"- as I always had active acne on top of active acne. So frustrating! Hang in there :(

      Thanks Yves

      I'm hoping accutane does the trick. My skin looks awful doesn't it? - especially on the right side of my face. Frustrating indeed!!! I'm allergic to aspirin but might try the egg white mask =).
