I would be really grateful for any advice anyone can give me please. Im 39 and have had cystic acne for 25 yrs im currently on accutane for the 2nd time in 2 yrs day 16 at the moment. In the past my dermatologists have said that all acne is hormonal my spots tend to be in the chin area . ( alhough at the moment im breaking at everywhere ) . The cysts are very painful at times can keep me awake at night.
A mth ago at my wits end i went to the dr to ask for blood tests to find out if my hormones were out of synch i was tested for testosterone , tsh which is to do with thyroid all results have come back normal. I have since been tested for oestrogen and progesterone, lh and fsh again all normal and the testosterone has been done again . All in all i have have adrenal , ovarian , pituitary , thyroid all tested and all normal .
Is there anything i have missed out which i can request ?
I cant imagine i would have PCOS as i only have acne as a symptom and all bloods normal and periods normal but im at my wits end with it
any suggestions on anything else to be tested most welcome
