    Hello, I am glad that to hear that there re no more breakouts.... as for the oliness... That's something I'm not looking forward to :/ What kind of blotting powder do you use? do you use it over your make up?... I really hope my face is not nearly as oily as it used to be! MIne was oily within one hour after washing it! I stopped accutnae today... we'll see what it results in... What kind of laser treatment for the scarring are you looking at? I was thinking about Fraxel!... jsut finishing grad

    So I had the appointment with my doctor. My liver is fine so we are goingt o 80 mg... hopefully is not too bad on my body, I wanted to go to 80mg anyway. I also got an increase dose on my birth control, I've been spotting a lot so I'm sick of it! in two weeks I'll start the next dose of birth control and I start with the 8-mg a day today. We will see... everything is the same, I'm breaking out as usual but nothing as bad as it was,... patience patience patience...
