Everything happened so fast and I felt so helpless!

At first I thought 2-3 pimples was a sign of an upcoming period. But 5 days later, 2 pimples became 10. Thats when I started to get worried. I sought help from the family physician. She then prescribed me Minoclycline and Differin Gel. So far, I have not seen any improvement or whatsoever. I cannot attribute this major breakout to my diet or sleeping habits because ive never broken out this much before. My dad had pretty bad acne so i guess I inherited that trait and is only manifesting now. :) so yeah.

      Ouch that looks really aggressive :D

      I have used Minoclycline and Differin Gel as well. They never really had any great effect on me. With acne you can get it anytime in your life. Mine is genetic and i have had it for over 12 years.

      I hope you clear up real soon.

      All the best.

      you want to try accutane. I have been on it for about two weeks, and can't wait for clear skin. Accutane will clear your skin. Your such a pretty girl, acne or no acne.

      That is pretty bad. You shoud try BP before going on accutane because accutane has side affects thats you might not enjoy plus accutane us exspensive.

      Bp will clear it If It works for you and helps to prevent breaks pretty well.

      You should use it morning and night to get best results.

      It's okay... Over time it will go away.. I went to the physician and they always give you antibiotics and stuff. Never do that again.. Get off of that stuff, because it can sometimes destroy stuff that your immune system uses to help rid acne. Was a big mistake for me. But remember it won't always be like that. Enjoy life. It seriously helped me. Something time heals :D GOOD LUCK
