    My retin-a, acanya, Solodyn and Yaz log...whew (PICS!!!!)

    I think it is possible I am the worst updater ever. Sorry. So here is where I am now...58 days (2 months) after starting this regimen my skin is a nightmare. It certainly did not become this way overnight but progressively has been looking more and more hideous. Honestly there is no improvement. Remember how I was complaining about it being on one side of my face? Yes well now most of it has transfered to the other side...while leaving behind the lovely scars and what not on the other. I am a me

    Oh and since I said I would post pics I will....I just haven't been feeling like taking a picture lately with this mess on my face but since I said I would I will keep my word and you can see what I mean about one side of my face...weird right?!? oh and the last pic I uploaded is me during the summer when my face was clear....ahh to go back to the good old days....hopefully sooner than later...its crazy how you take it for granted

    My retin-a, acanya, Solodyn and Yaz log...whew (PICS!!!!)

    ugh today I woke up with a new pimple.....and it looks like the kind that doesnt hurt at first but then a couple hours later it feels like the most painful thing in the world. dang. its weird only one half of my face is doing all the breaking out. if you saw me from the other side you wouldnt know I had acne....look at the other side and you see I do! perfect... However I just applied some acanya gel to it so maybe it will go down. Retin-a micro is still making me flake and peel. Still only i

    Really? That is so weird we are on the exact same meds! Sorry I have not updated for a while I have been extremely busy with school and weddings! ha So a week later.... That one pimple I was talking about on my left cheek is still red :/ the good news is its completely finished (no longer active or whatever) just still red AND I got another huge pimple a couple days ago on my left side near my nose. Although that is going away now (I popped it I know I shouldn't but I am one of those people
  5. This is my second log. The first, "my Spirolactanone log" didn't work out ...needless to say I didn't really keep it up since it wasn't working for me. Okay just to fill anyone who wants to read this in...I have been taking Solodyn for 32 days now and have been using retin-a micro for 32 days. Yaz on the other hand I have been taking for over a year. Birth control really really did help my acne, however it has not given me clear skin, and thats what we are all after right? So my fabulous dermat

    Red raised and painless

    Oh thankyou so much for your response! I appreciate it so much. Its refreshing to know I am not the only one that gets these things. They are just random! I'm going to try what you said with the bp I put some on last night and I feel like it helped but its kinda early to tell. Anyways thanks so much again for your help!

    Red raised and painless

    Okay from time to time I get these bumps ranging from small to medium. They are red and raised and look like nodules or under the skin pimples but they are completely painless! Having had those under the skin kinds I know how those feel and this is def not that. Problem is they take three to four weeks as best to go away and often come back! They are really dry too and I just don't know how to make them go away/prevent them...can anyone relate?? do you think it could be rosacea? like rosacea a

    Spiro/Aldactone

    Also quick question since I am on 75 mg. of spiro and yaz am I technically taking 100 mg? I've read that yaz has 25 mg. of spiro in it so I wasn't sure?

    Spiro/Aldactone

    Thankyou so so much that is so encouraging...I have seriously spent the last like hour and half reading those logs. I really do hope it helps...I can't quite tell yet if the oil on my face has decreased at all...I think I want it to so I feel like it has

    Spiro/Aldactone

    Really?! Thankyou, that makes me feel better. I was beginning to think that is was a sign it was not working for me. I know hormonal acne is said to be on the jawline/chin but I never break out there. Mine is more central like IN THE MIDDLE of my cheeks by my nose and stuff. Sometimes I wonder if it is hormonal acne

    Spiro/Aldactone

    Hello All! Okay I have a question for all of you who have taken spiro/aldactone. Right now I am currently taking aldactone combine with yaz bcp. For the first month I took 50 mg. and then she moved me up to 75 mg. Spiro seemed to help the first month, my mild/moderate acne was clear finally! Then it started to flare up again so she moved my up to 75 mg. and its worse than ever! Does changing doses have any effect? Like can you experience a break just by increasing your dosage? Thanks Thanks!!

    My Yaz and spiro log

    Well I have read so much on this site and got so much great feedback and advice from other people I decided to add my experiences and thoughts! Anyways, I wanted to make a log of my personal experience with yaz and spiro. I actually just went to the doctor today, and she gave me spiro so I guess that is what inspired me to do this. Lets see I am 20 years old, and I have been suffering from acne since I was about 14. SUCKS. Like many people here, I have tried a great deal of products, (RetinA, di

    DAY 1

    I just wanted to keep track of my progress using a combonation of yaz bcp and spiro. So, to begin, I have mild-moderate acne. Always ranging between clear skin an a messed up face. Right now its more on the messed up side I have struggled with acne since I was about 14, and tried a great deal of products. RetinA was the worst and literally destroyed my face. So my doc put me on birth control pills which is the ONLY thing so far that has made any sort of difference. I also use proactive which I
  15. Okay so for the past four days I have had this blemish. It is not painful. It has no puss/head. It literally is just red raised skin. I have tried EVERYTHING! Do any of you have things like this and if so what are your recommendations for getting rid of them?
