This is my inspiration picture (I'm the girl). The antiobiotics were still working (novo-minocyclin, 100mg twice a day) and I had so much makeup on. It was halloween after all. Even with all that though you can see the general ruddiness of my skin. Brief History: Been fighting acne for 4 1/2 years now. I've tried everything but I react badly to bp (turn into a lobster) and most other topical things. Differin was working alright but didn't really do too too much. My derm put me on antibiotics, then I went off for a while, terrible breakout and then when I went back on they stopped being as effective. I don't get cysts, thank goodness, but lots of white heads and black heads. Plus every little mark lasts at least a year so even if my skin is clear it looks terrible. Accutane is pretty much my last chance, nothing else will work anymore. I'll try to show everything possible.
