Well I have been off line for a while. Although I was seeing great results with the peels, I was having trouble keeping up with them both time and $.
So I went back to the Doctor. He said I can use Retin A now (Retin A Mirco) and Mynocycline. I started in December. It helped some, as it always does for a while, and then stopped. I got upset with him because I really need a doctor to look and see what is out there and try it rather than do the same thing over and over. My issue is not on the surface! I went to another Dr. This one recommended Tazorac, (Some sulphur topical), Benzocline and a 2% glycolic wash. And yes it has started to improve but it has only been a few weeks, and my face is red and peeling. The tazorac seems to feel better while it is on my face, not burning as much as the Retin A.
So do I really have to either have breakouts or peeling skin? If that is the case I might as well give up now. I am 34. Do I have to die with zits! My face has been peeling since the Retin A in December. Still breakouts because I really believe mine is more related to inside then out. Why will the doctor not take more than 5 minutes with me and actually listen to what I have tried, in what order, what has worked some and not and see how to help me.
Really upset these days.
And to top it off my back looks like I have been in a fire. I am not dreading the summer. And the worst part is that I was able to loose the baby fat from my last child so the rest of me looks ok and I was ready.
So I am going to a 3rd Dermo tomorrow. Pulled some strings. In telling her my saga over the phone she has started to think outside of the box. I have some hope?
She asked me about my birth control. She said that they see lots of issues with women who have the ring, implants and the IUCs (or IUDs). So guess what I am using. One of those of course. I will probably have to change BC. She said they see the best results with Yaz or Yazmine (spelling?). They have also seen good results with a certain type of blood pressure medicine! What! Now I am really excited. This is really outside of the box so maybe it will work.
I just want to stop peeling, stop crater face and not be red in the face all the time. Plus it hurts!
I have heard about a new medicine out there that controls oil fabulously. I am trying to find the name. My second Dermoatologist has no idea what it is, guess she is not doing her research.
Hope some of you have found something to work for you!
