    Week 5 Of Spiro

    Hey guys so this hasn't been a good week for me! I've been under a lot of stress, have a major exam coming up in a few days and a whole lot else going on. And I feel like it is taking a toll on my skin. I've broken out quite a bit in the last week and a half. My skin has really dried out, but I feel like its dried out too much and my body is reacting by producing oil. So it looks slightly flaky but shiny. I'm still trying to figure out how to work around this. My forehead was clearing u
  2. So, what it's been like 4 days? 5 days? Man i'm dodgy at keeping track and doing daily updates but whatevs bru So I actually think something's happening... well at least I think it is... it doesn't seem any worse at least thank goodness and I have actually been told that it's looking better so here's hoping for continued recovery! I've actually been a bit naughty lately too and ate some bread! shock horror! which I'm not meant to do due to gluten not meshing with the old bods and all..

    Week 12 Of Spiro

    Hello! So sorry I have been MIA for the past month and a bit! My skin is doing really good though! So Right now I have maybe two small pimples happening. But quite a few little bumps that I think are blackheads. I had two really big ones for the past week and half and they are finally settling down but they stuck out really badly because the rest of my skin looks really clear. My forehead is clear of the little bumps. I use MURAD's spot treatment on my forehead and cheeks despite th
  4. Ok I have strived to survive and have ultimately reached the one month mark of spiro. which is good. Considering last year I'd use something for two weeks, freak out and bail on it.... makes for unhappy skin and an unhappy me. The thing that I find interesting after reading various reviews on spiro is that like 99% of people commenting on this med claimed that it caused major upsets in the initial stages due to an explosion of acne which then eventually calmed down. Bloody hell man! if i had
  5. Bloody hell man... like honestly, the same story of getting the old hopes up what with the skin clearing and all then BAM! new breakouts! so shattering... at least one side of my face has managed to stay clear and smooth, now on the waiting side for the acne marks to fade away. The other side of my face however is defying the meds I'm taking and going into remission of breaking out.... rage at life man.... At least it's not as bad and not as many though the more it breaks out, the more red t
  6. So, I started taking Spironolactone at 100mg five days ago and I'm kind of excited to start seeing some results. I know it takes most people over two weeks to see anything occur, so in the meantime...patience is key. I'd like to be clear by the end of this summer, if not sooner, so I can get ActivFX for my scarring. I haven't had any negative side-effects from this yet (e.g. frequent urination, wonky periods, fatigue, dizziness or nausea), but only time will tell. Maybe I'll be one of those luck
  7. im sorryy i havnt been updating as often as i intended to do. My mood has been very down lately and im feeling super depressed. I am not sure if Aldactone is doing much for my acne as I am also using a topical treatment which I just stopped using because it was irritating my skin. My tummy cramps isnt as bad as it was now but I still occasionally get the cramps. I also noticed that my period came earlier than it was supposed to maybe due to aldactone. I might be stopping Aldactone and using chin
  8. I have embarked on something new. I have the topical and now get to try the internal stuff.. which is a little bit of concern for me as my body never responded well to any of the oral antibiotics or such stuff, just didn't deal with it at all so that was always a flunk and i was stuck relying on the topical creams to get me by.. which they didn't really, they kind of just made it worse then maybe a bit better and then pretty much static with small fluctuations but since it's either this aldacton
  9. So, good news, my skin is clearing up! which is pretty much i'm sure what everyone on this site wants to experience and share... yay yay yay. Bloody hell man, and what a slog it was! Still got a bit to go what with clearing/healing up the red marks left behind from the acne but my face is so soft and smooth now! i'm hardly getting any new ones and they seem to be clearing up pretty quickly too so thank you aldactone/spiro meds for helping me get my confidence back and not being Roaccutane... fin
