How often do you take penicillin?? That could be whats clearing you more than anything. I drink at LEAST 1 1/2 gallons of water a day and sometimes with lemon and I do eat fruits and veggies. I've done this for 5 years. When I take penicillin prior to a dental appointment, I'm clearing for a few days, then because I'm not taking it after.....I resort to the same old breakouts. I wish I could take penicillin always.!! How much of a dose do you take?? To my knowledge it's great for skin, but you can't remain on it. I take 2000mg prior to every dental appt. which is a very high dose I'm guessing.

L Glad to see you're having luck with this.

I'm sorry, I misunderstood. Did you mean you are using a topical or oral penicillin?

Scar i do agree with you about the water, fruits and veggies. That did help me, because my body was loaded with toxins. I never ever drank water and never ate fruit. I relalized i was still eating the junk i ate as a teenager, and i needed to grow up and take charge of my body :-)

oral penicillin??
i don't take that, the one i use comes in a gel. and i put it on a zit, and it'll be gone in 3 days or so.
it works really well.. i can't get it in Canada.. only in UK. or hong kong.. places where they have UK products.

yeah i find that for the past acne years, i realize that i don't drink much water at all. if i'm thirsty i just go and get ice tea and coffee. and my **** is so yellow. it was crazy. and i dodn't even eat fruits and stuff.
so stupid.

now that i drink more water, i find that my skin looks so much better
