So it was "technically" my 3 month into treatment but I'm not counting the first month. That month I took Accutane (brand) and then had to switch to Claravis. So I count it as 2 months on Claravis. And my dermatologist agreed that I can stay on Claravis for 3 more month, so a total of 5 months on Claravis. I don't want this acne stuff to come back! Last time he put me on Keflex and that seemed to help. So he gave me a script for that and then gave me samples and script for Aczone. I just read all the posts about that. But we'll see what happens. I do see improvement! So that makes me happy and feel like it's worth it. My shoulders and back was pretty bad and I probably have 3 pimples on there! You can see all the scaring from the acne instead the acne itself! But my derm did accuse me of picking at my face! He said I can't pick at my back that's why it looks so fabulous. I don't pick my face, maybe a little. But I wake up in the night itching my face! It's so irritated and I'm asleep so I don't know what I'm doing. And with this medicine, I get cuts on my skin left and right. If I push my hair out of my face and I graze a pimple it will start bleeding! He told me to put socks on my hands! How stupid. But I'm really going to try to make a conscience effort to watch touching and scratching my face. Maybe this Aczone will help with the inflammation and irritation. Maybe it's my stress that's slowing up the results. Who knows but I'm glad that I see results even if it's not all the results that I want to see!
