Wow. So I started using the prescriptions that my dermatologist per scribed for me this last Thursday. She said my face would be very dry and my acne would get worse before it gets better. But omg I was not expecting it to be this bad at all. I thought I would breeze right through the bad part. I was so wrong. She gave me one medicine that is supposed to take the swelling down in my actual pimples (I have cystic acne), and basically just helps get all of the junk out, and two more creams to actually help prevent it and treat it. Omg this hurts so bad. My face is peeling everywhere and stings! Is this normal? When will my face stop attacking me?? It like hates itself and it feels like its battling itself! Wow ok I just had to get that all out.
