Hey guys, I am so grateful that there is a place like this where I can go to get some type of relief. I have always had blemishes here and there and when I was 23 had a three month long outbreak that nearly killed me. I was depressed, loosing weight and not leaving my house. Now at 26 I went for three years with fairly clear skin. YAZ and Sulfur antibiotics helped to clear me up pretty quickly. After about a year some smaller breakouts would occur so I stopped with the antibiotics and birth control and surprisingly didn't have much of a breakout from that. In the last three months I moved to a new state, got a new job and felt that stress, changing my face wash and hormones contributed to this now 2 month long outbreak, where I am at this point is I have full blown acne. I'm talking about forehead acne, cystic acne all over my chin, and on both sides above my mouth where a mustache would go. It's pretty humiliating and to be honest guys, looks really bad My question is, I'm pretty sure my acne is hormonal, last time I had the outbreak it was after a cyst on my ovary ruptured and once I got on YAZ it went away. I had a pack of MonoNessa or Ortho Cyclin and started taking it about 4 days ago. In the last four days I have gone from bad to worse and want to hear if anyone else had this experience and if it is just an initial breakout or if I need to switch to YAZ. I have an appt. in a week to get on birth control but fear it is just going to keep getting worse. I would also love to hear some encouragement at this point because I am pretty down and depressed and can't seem to keep weight on because I am so sick with anxiety. Thank you so much for anyone who reads this and I would love any responses.
