Freewrite: Stopping T & What Had Happened to My Face

2년 전

A handful of you may know that I was on T for about 3 months or so.

Later in that third month I broke out in severe acne.

If I were just a regular trans guy working a regular job, I would not have been so bothered by the lesions on my face.

However, the reality is, for me, that I am a sex worker and freelance model.

At this rate, I am more dysmorphic over my face than dysphoric over my body.

Don’t get me wrong. I would like to grow my junk for metoidioplasty, have a beard, but the painful acne I am experiencing is excruciating and ugly.

Perhaps one of these days I will get a clitoral pump and beard transplant, but now it’s not something within my means.

Right now I am seeing a doctor to work on my severe acne.

I have been put on doxycycline, clindamycin phosphate and tretinoin. According to the internet, I am going to get worse before getting better.

The results aren’t instant but hopefully I see positive changes soon.

On the advice of another doctor, I have also been referred to a dermatology unit to follow up on the results.

Aside from the photos below, that’s all I have to share today, I hope your day is going better than mine.

That looks so painful! I'm so sorry you had such a bad reaction.


It was more irritating than painful and while I understand that it's part of hormone induced puberty, I cannot stand having huge swollen pus mountains on my face.
