  11. i steam then mask but im thinking about skipping the steaming and just masking. the steaming is intense and i have way bad hyperpigmentation so the heat from the steam probably makes it worse. does it make it worse temporarily or permanttly?? should i steam or skip it.
  12. my doc gave me 250 mg capules of tercycilne to take twice a day. along with this i am not using BP wash, just ceatphil. i found the BP wash wasnt effective and gave me more acne. should i perhaps icorpate the BP wash into my regimen by washing with it at night. he also gave me topical Erythromycin gel. i have been taking the tertracyline and wahsing iwth cetaphil day and night and using lemon juice every ohter day. so this sound solid or should i use the bp and topical stuff. what about mostrir
