the irony of my pale skin

I am still having bouts of breakouts. So my dermatologist treated me with SSpeel or yellow peel, then after a week back to cleaning/pricking… and was told to take Afaxin 25000 iu.

So far I have been successful in taking one every night, save for yesterday.  (I’m still sticking to the clindamycin toner and erythromycin gel routine, day and night.)

So far so good. The “seeds” of the pimples are removed now but, I still have those pesky red marks on my skin though. The dermatologist said it was because I have a pale skin that makes all the redness obvious. *sigh* While most of the people here in the Philippines would kill to get fair-er, I want to get a bit darker (to hide my blemishes). Oh, the irony.

Anyway, I found this on the internet and thought this is a nice to share.

Looking at the chart, I believe I am seriously lacking in vitamin C, K and Folate.

*must remember to take Ascorbic acid too…*

little red dots

No, I am not talking about polka dot patterns. I am talking about my skin.

From how my skin looks like, it definitely needs help. Like immediately please.

I need a visit to the Derma as soon as possible. Endure the pain to get better. *sighs*

I don’t want to look like my skin is inspired by dots of snow/polka dots or in my case dots of pimples.

As soon as the dermatologist saw me she says I am breaking out due to an allergic reaction. I was like, I thought this was stress… She said yes, and that too.

Stress + Allergic reaction = current breakout. 

And no pricking for this time. Which is good and bad at the  same time. Good because no pain, Bad because I have to deal with the bumps/redness. And Christmas is only a few days away! 

I was asked to switch soap, shampoo, toothpaste and prescribed oral and topical medications. No sunblock on the face for the meantime.

These are the products I am currently using.  The classic Colgate, Dove bar for sensitive skin, and Pantene shampoo.

I am happy to say they seem to be working fine!

My skin is still far from being acne free, but it is improving.

Hopefully by the next Derma visit, she can give me a sunblock which I can use because I am scared that my freckles will multiply. . .
