New Derm Tomorrow.....

Well, I'm seeing my new 'holistic/integrative' dermatologist tomorrow. Wish me luck.

My skin is........not bad, to be honest. Still producing cysts. *insert swear words here* But considerably less cysts, and therefore there is less pain and slightly less embarrassment. Very, very few small pimples. Looooooots of hyperpigmentation in a variety of shades (bright red all the way to dark brown--hooray).

Although in general my skin is doing better, I'm still frustrated. I want the cystic acne GONE for good. Nothing is worse than having pretty good looking skin and going to bed confident, then waking up the next morning with a cyst or two. And I do SO much to support my body: vitamins, supplements, medications, a really good diet (no gluten, soy, dairy, or sugar)......and yet it still doesn't cooperate.

It's hard to not lose hope. Oh well. Enough whining. Fingers crossed for tomorrow (Thursday).

I want to share part of my story with you. I had severe cystic acne that worsened over a period of two years when I had no health insurance. when I finally got health insurance again in 2010, I was able to see a dermatologist. I started taking an antibiotic called Amoxicillin or Amoxil for brand name. I was prescribed 1,500mg per day but I took apx. 4,500mg a day. After two years of doing that, My cystic acne completely went away. I just want you to know that there are cures that you can try. That said, I think seeing a holistic practitioner is ideal and good luck. share what you learned!
