Yup! HUMBUG! after years of beautiful skin I have acquired the look of 15-year-old pubescent! A month ago I started breaking out over my left cheek; which is weird for me because I never have gotten acne on my cheeks! I tried everything I could for it, including the most ridiculous diet of absolutely NO SUGAR! So not only was I breaking out but I was restraining myself from my favorite treat of Hot Cocoa! I then thought that perhaps it was just all the stress of eight months that had caught up to me! As soon as the semester ended I assumed my face would clear up; what with a two week stress free break and all! However, NO that did not happen! I have loads to be grateful for and I really don't have as bad of acne as lots of other people, but I am 22-years-old for crying out loud and acne can really prove to be a damper in your day! So I booked myself a trip to the doctor...which turned out to be a very big slice of humble pie for me. You see, my mom had instructed me that I not wear any make-up to the doctor so he could see the extent of the acne! Picture this...a 22-year-old girl walks in with no make-up and acne! However, my doctor was amazingly nice and informed me that I did not have typical blackhead acne, but rather a nasty case of cystic acne, which means I had a nasty infection in my face! lovely, AN INFECTION IN MY FACE! I was prescribed a months worth of Tetracycline antibiotic (taken orally) to kill the infection from the inside, and five months worth of Retin-A cream (acutane in cream form) to break up the infection on the skin. So one more dose of humble pie in a trip to the local Walmart pharmacy and back home to enjoy a guilt free cup of Hot Cocoa! I'll keep you posted on the results!
