Acne And Eczema Flare Up, Possibly Leaky Gut?

2 posts in this topic

Hi guys,

So I've been 95% clear for quite a while now from taking Accutane last year (I know, I know) and I've stayed clear with a combo of Spiro and Sprintec BCPs. I've also been a vegan for three weeks, and my skin looked great until a few days ago, when I had a minor breakout on my chin, and my eczema came back after not having it for years, and my hands are all crusty and scabby from it. I've also noticed my nose has been kind of oily, and I haven't had oily skin since my first week of Accutane. I've been doing some research, and I've heard quite a bit about "leaky gut" on this site, and I was wondering if this could be my problem? I've been wondering if this is why my chin still has the same cluster of pimples on my chin that I can't remember ever not having, even while on Accutane. It's really frustrating. How would I know if I had a leaky gut? I know there's a guide on this forum, but can anyone give me an overview/general tips for healing/personal experience? Thank you!
