just wanted to see if I could get some input from you.
I 'm a 27 year old female, and all through puberty I have had horrible acne. This was eventually treated with a couple of cycles of klinotab (minocyclin). Ever since I was about 19 years old I've been practically acne-free, with the odd breakout during that time of the month.
In january I found out I'm allergic to quite a lot of foods (including gluten, eggs, mushrooms, lactose,...) and I've been off those foods since then. I've also been off birthcontrol (Yasmin) since December or something.
Since about two-three weeks ago, my skin has become very bad. I'm getting a lot of pimples, especially on my chin and cheeks, and some of them are very painful. Also, the ones on my chin never really seem to come to a head.
I have tried benzoyl peroxide, salycilic acid, tea tree oil... nothing seems to help. I really don't know what to do, and this is really getting me down... I've been acne-free for such a long time, I really don't want to go through all that again, and I hope I won't have to go back on antibiotics.
I've included a picture so you know what I'm talking about (I seem very white because I've got a very light layer of sudocrem on, this seems to help calm things down...)
Thanks for your input!
