Hey JJ;
Itís goiníÖÖ, I wish that just once I could wake up with absolutely nothing brewing on my face. Right now I have this big nodule on my cheekbone, near my hairline, and I have another new lump under my lip; near where the other one showed up a few days ago. I wish that I just knew exactly what was going on and that I could foresee the future. Right now Iím not bad though. I would say that Iím 80% improved from where I was a month ago. I am just wondering if the Bactrim is holding off a much bigger outbreak that I would be getting from the Yasmin if I wasnít taking it. OrÖ., am I not really breaking out because Iím not eating wheat and taking these pillsÖÖ.., or what is going to happen when I stop the Yasmin for a week and get my periodÖÖÖÖ, or what will happen when I stop the Bactrim? I got too many things goin on here. Iíve been thinking that I may revise my diet even more and try to stop eating so many carbs and sugars. I think itís healthier for us; and has been referred to lately as the ďinflammation reducingĒ diet. Iíve been on Atkins before; and it wasnít THAT hard. It would just mean that I would have to plan and cook more meals; instead of just relying on my rice bowls,etc. Iím so tired of thinking of this. I wanna just eat pizza all day every day and Iíd be good :)

Iím glad you had a good time at the party. I spent a good part of my weekend cleaning out my closets. I have tons of bags and boxes for goodwill, and may sell some stuff to a consignment shop. I didnít go anywhere, really. Was kinda cold outside.

As far as I know, there are no side effects with Bactrim, UNLESS you are allergic to Sulfa, and in which case you could have an allergic reaction, of course. I donít know if there is a way to test for this before you try itÖ., I had been on it before so I knew that I was alright. I also read that about the blood thingÖ, and I donít really know. Maybe you could print out the comments and ask the doctor when you go. No doctor has ever said anything to me about it; but then again, Iíve never been on it long term. And no initial breakout for me. Iíd say that I see improvements within the first week, definitely the second; but everyone is different. I was hoping that by now Iíd be completely clear (I started on the 10thÖ, but again, I started the Yasmin then too). Iím anxious to hear what your derm has to say to you.

Accutane was hard for me. I remember my acne getting much worse before It got better. I got very, very dry, and literally would have patches of nasty, dry, bumpy skin, that I could just peel away after a shower. Iím sure that I did that; and made the situation worse, but I donít really remember. Oh, and my lips were so dry and my eyeballs felt like they were on fire constantly. So, for me, I the dryness was terrible, I couldnít even open my mouth because it was already cracked in the corners. Also, I had terrible back pain. But, that did eventually go away and I cleared up for a while. Donít remember how long exactly. And, my side effects Iím sure were more severe than others because Iím sensitive to like EVERYTHING!!!!!!

Have you gotten that other face wash? Iíve been using it twice a day, and putting on the tazorac at night (then rinsing it off). My face is way less oily; but itís too dry in places, so I think I will switch to washing with the dove in the morning, so that maybe it will balance out more. I mean, if I wash my face before I go to bed; I shouldnít have to really use anything medicated (with tea tree oil and some salicylic acid) in the morning. Gonna give that a shot and see if some of the dryness goes away. I definitely donít want to over dry my face; cause thatís just gonna lead to more problems, but I think that my face would more benefit from using the medicated wash at night; after Iíve been wearing the makeup and producing all the oil all day longÖ

Have a great day at school; are you having a Halloween party for the kids?

Did you have acne on your chin before the Yasmin; also, are you still on accutane?
