I have definately noticed improvement this last week or so. The initial breakout (weeks 2/3) seems to have just about ended. I did get a large cyst under my left eye a couple days ago which was strange b/c I usually don't get much acne there, but other than that, the deep ones seemed to have stopped all together... I hope it stays that way.
However, as you can see in the pictures, I still have quite a few red marks. I'm using emu oil which seems to help a bit. Does anyone know of a better way to reduce red marks??
As far as the side effects, lips are dry of course, but to be honest it just doesn't bother me anymore, gotten pretty used to it. However, about a week ago I noticed the skin on the back of my hands, neck, and forearms got reeeeally dry. Looked like I had poison ivy... anyways I used some stong moisturizer when I went to sleep nightly and thats helped quite a bit.
Hope the progress keeps up....
