I'm so FED UP. I am still recoving from 6 painful whiteheads and one cyst like pimple that I all got this weekend. I did not pop them, but dried them up with Sacyclic Acid...and ofcorse there are redmarks. I stopped taking Tetracycline...because it stopped working after the 4th day???? I finally got a taste of having clear skin again...then it went back to bad. My doctor prescribed me Minocycline (50mg once a day) and I have been taking it for 3 days so far. I am on the waiting list for a derm appointment (my original one was in the end of january!!!). I want to try for accutane but I dont know if i will get it. I just want to be done with all of this!!! I wanted to have a decent Christmas without worrying about wearing coverup! I never used to wear any makeup before this shit happend....fuck...i've been crying so much lately over this. Ive spent so much money ($160) of makeup and over the counter products that haven't done anything to my skin. I hate applying makeup everymorning before school! I just want to be natural..I never wore makeup before all of this. I didn't play sports this year because I didn't want my skin to get worse, I havent spent the night at a friends house in over 4 months because I dont want them to see my "real" skin. All of my friends don't even OWN concealer or coverup. They have near perfect skin. I hate when i'm talking to people and they don't look at my eyes, but at a pimple. Sometimes I just want to stay home and never go out. I feel ugly, disgusting, and not worthy. I just want to have my confidence back. I want my life back.

note: pictures don't show a lot of redmarks

      your skin is not that bad ! many people are much worse off than you are but i know how frustrating it can be. As far as the antibiotics go - you are not going to see immediate results - in fact it can take months to see the full results so the tetracycline did not stop working after four days. I would give the minocyline a few months before you toss it. I am too thinking about accutane - it can be a harsh drug but most people will tell you that the benefits far outweigh a few months of discomfort. Good luck!
