    Day 5 & 6

    Day 5 The zit in my ear formed into some kind of awfulness over night!! It's so big that it's putting pressure on some kind of nerve or something important lol.

    DAY 1: (40 MG once daily for 2 weeks) I took my first pill yesterday and did not notice any changes in my acne and had no side effects. DAY 2: I took my second pill this morning and thus far haven't noticed a thing yet. I'll keep you updated. Pictures will be coming soon
  6. I started getting acne at 10 years old. After years of suffering with acne, mostly just on my forehead, i learned that i could try prescription methods to clear up my acne. After about a month or 2 of taking an antibiotic (Doxcycline) and using a couple topicals (Retin A Micro and not positive on the other) my face cleared up. I kept up with the treatment religiously for a year before i started to take it as needed. Finally i was one of those people with nice, clear skin. There is no greate
