update, if anyone's interested my face really has improved quite a bit from its "hideous" state, thank the Lord. all the pustules/lesions/rashiness, etc. have healed. I just hope that too much damage was not done. I'm using the MUAC toner (still liking this), metrogel (I got my doc to change my rx from the cream to the gel), spot treating only w/DY's 2% BHA, and am sometimes spot treating w/BP over the metrogel. After I put my makeup on in the a.m., I almost look decent!

The smallest deed is greater than the grandest intention.

I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul. (Invictus - William Ernest Henley)

Just think I used to worry 'bout things like that,
Used to worry 'bout rich and skinny, 'til I wound up poor and fat,
Nowadays I kind of worry where my mind's been at,
Just think I used to worry 'bout things like that. (Delbert McClinton - I Used to Worry from Never Been Rocked Enough)
