working beautifully. no more breakout. the old ones are drying up and shrinking. i find that when i pop my whiteheads the pimple heals faster and better. the trick is to be gentle and let it scab then peel off on its own. i tried with other pimples not to pop and they just grew to a big white monster then shrunk then sat there for weeks hard as a rock. yuck. no way. i squeezed them right out and it heeled beautifully. thank god i started on this antibiotic. sure my face is dry as a prune but ill just deal with it for now until all my pimple scabs peel. i dont have any active juicy pimple. they are all popped and scabbed waiting to peel and fall off. just dont rush it. lets the scab sit until the flesh underneath heels then the scab will turn dark brown and fall right off in the shower. no scars what so ever. i did peel a scab before when it wasnt ready and oh effing boy do i regret or what. terrible scar on my forehead right about my eyebrow. thats gonna be a difficult scar to heel. i was trying to pop a pimple one night and my nails were too long and i scratched the area around the pimple. it scabbed of course and it looked real bad. i wasnt patient and just had to peel the effer. then it bled again and scabbed and scarred! yikes! never again.

i'm just so tired of acne acne acne. anyway. i made a egg yolk mask and it wasn't that bad. i read it was good for moisture so i had to try it. i couldn't stand my dry flaky face from that damn erythromycin crap the doc gave me. it did well actually i'm impressed! :) i'm gonna use it twice a week from now on. how about that! something that gives instant results for once. anyway. i stopped with the damn acne free kit. my skin is way too sensitive for all these face washes and toners and bp. i cant do it anymore. I'm going back to basics. just a gentle wash with cetaphil, witch hazel, and a tiny bit of cocoa butter lotion. not the thick oily cocoa butter but a light water based one is alright i think. I'm happy i'm on doxycycline cuz really antibiotics are the only thing that works for my breakouts. effing doctor! i cant believe he wouldn't give me any! talking about my stomach will get upset and stuff. what an idiot! like im freaking 4 y/o i don't know how to eat before taking meds! my stomach handles antibiotics very well! so i went online i bought 90 pills. it costed me 100 bucks can you imagine? see i dont have insurance and if i were to go see another doctor it would cost 100 just for the visit. and that jerk doctor wouldn't give me what i want. he actually told me to continue using the erythro on just one side of my face and come back to see him in a week to compare results. A WEEK! MY FACE IS ON FIRE! I'M EFFING PEELING! WHAT THE EFF DO YOU MEAN A WEEK! and how am i suppose to treat the other half of my damn face! let a week go by and leave it untreated for more pimples to move in! what an idiot! anyway. its day two of the pills and guess what? no breakouts! :) so i'm just treating the old ones now. give them a week and ill hopefully be clear! yaaay! but they are some stubborn bastards. i mean STUBBORN! but its okai. it has to go eventually. just patients and prayer. :doh:

i'm so determined to get this acne under control and start working on them scars .. sigh******** another dilemma. I dont know what i'm going to do about those but i deal with them when i get there. at least those i could cover up with some make up.

day 4

alright so my skin is peeling less now after i stopped using erythromycin and bp cuz my skin was horrid! so basically i've only been washing with the acne free cleanser and then moisturized with the lotion. the acne free lotion is great but the tube is small and i use a lot of it so it sucks i gotta buy the whole kit just to get the lotion? any recommendations for another lotion? aside from the face cleanser and moisturizer, my face was still very inflamed from the peeling and the bp yesterday so i decided to ice my face down and then applied some honey which seemed to do the trick. today i'm on doxycycline for the first time. i usually respond well to antibiotics so im praying this will be the answer to my prayers. please pray for me and all our fellow acne sufferers.

day 3

i was using erythromycin for s week and my face started peeling and shedding like no tomorrow. i immediately broke out after i stopped using it and im thinking its because of the moisturizers i used to stop the peeling. im not using that stuff again cuz i didnt want my face to peel like that. anyway. im using the acne free kit now and its day three. my skin feels a little better than before but i still got dry patches. the pimples are reducing in size and redness. i havent had a new breakout since starting. im hopping my skin goes back to normal in a weeks time but who knows. im so sick of this acne. i wish i never went on erythromycin topical and started the acne fee kit sooner. the only thing i could be happy about the peeling is that it faded out some previous scars but was it worth the new break outs and the peeling? see i live with my boyfriend and things like this is embarrassing. i dont wanna wake up next to him with a face like that! its been making me depressed. of course i cant wear my make u cuz my face cracks underneath it. it was my 23rd bday over the weekend and we had to stay in cuz my face was cracking and stinging. next weekend is memorial day and i probably wont go out then either. we will see right. please wish my luck and pray for me and our fellow acne sufferers.
