Day 18

The papules from earlier this week are slowly fading away. My whiteheads aren't going anywhere but I've got time.

    Photo Information for Day 18

    Do you use benzoyl peroxide? The most effective I've found is Nature's Cure. You can find them in any drugstore. It cleans out the pores really well.

    It's really hard to tell with you, I felt day 17 was looking really good.. I just know from experience whiteheads (and blackheads) take forever to clear up. I'm ten weeks into the regimen. I've noticed a reduction in zits/active acne so now I'm just left with mainly red marks but my blackheads still reign supreme. I used to get bad whiteheads on my chin, and I still do but they have cleared up some (but I have also added vinegar into the regimen, and exfoliation).

    I can't believe you never dry up. I have oily skin too, and it dried up in an instant even with tons of moisturizer.

    Have you tried going to a dermotologist? Hey one word of advice PLEASE DO NOT TRY MURAD!!!! it killed my face. I am still trying to clear them out and it has been 2 years.

    Thanks. I'll keep Nature's Cure in mind. For now I'm using the CSR BP 2.5%.

    Day 17. LOL. Good lighting!

    I went to a Derm about 2 months ago who prescribed Tetracycline and suggested using Benzoyl Peroxide. I took the Tetracycline following the instructions for 2 days. Day 1 I felt sick, weak, nauseous. Day 2 was worse. I haven't taken it since. I perceive my acne to be mild to moderate so I'd prefer to stay away from prescriptions. I may visit a Derm again but I'm patiently applying this regimen for now. Purpose, CSR BP, Eucrein.
