Day 15 update: So I've had one medium sized breakout under my right cheek bone, and one on the other side though there's little inflammation. A couple or so small painful bumps. Looks like no large breakouts this month so far. I have tried to stick to fish and steamed rice/veggies or at least one healthy meal a day, as well as keep up with the other changes I made last month. I don't know if it's one of the things, or partially all of them, but I believe something is working.

Day 19 update: I got 4 medium sized breakouts. The one on my chin seems the biggest. It's smaller than the nodule like stuff I usually get but larger than normal breakouts so I don't know if I should count it.

Day 26: So looks like I've been breaking out non stop in middle size acne since the middle of second week. I've gotten 6 total (5 on my face on sides of my cheeks and chin and one on my back) so far. Although they are smaller in size than the lumps I used to get they're still pretty deep and painful, leaving PIH marks.

 

With the healthy diet and exercise though I'm feeling like I'm not getting enough calories every day. Also having tried it for the first time in my life I still think it doesn't have too much to do with my acne. Still, each time I get a breakout I tend to blame it on that cake I ate the day before, though I've had a few weeks where I would swear off sugar yet wouldn't stop breaking out. I believe vitamin A is one of the things affecting my acne the most, it just makes sense knowing all the properties it has and how it reduces inflammation. I still get clogged pores. New bumps appear on the sides of my chin every month. I feel like I would get a lot less inflammation if they didn't keep appearing as they inflame and become acne all the time leaving nasty marks. I don't know how to stop those from forming. I'm getting a charcoal mask which is supposed to draw things out to the surface so I'll see how that works. I already use azelaic acid cream at least once a day.

Day 27: got a big breakout on my chin, though not sure if it's as big as the huge ones i used to get, again. If i did count it as one it would be 1 so far this month which is still progress. But it's more raised than those, and has kind of come to head. Since I started taking supplements I feel like I've swapped those nodule like lumps for medium breakouts. It's not a bad trade at all even though these still leave marks. I don't think it's as bad, anyway.

Day 1-20 update: I got a medium size breakout in the first half of the month, and what seems like a deep lump on my chin today (day 20). Overall so far 1 medium, 1 large breakout. Things seem to have gotten better after I stopped taking fish oil, but now I have a large lump again, when i had none last month. We'll see how this goes.

Day 21: Noticed a much larger lump on my chin under the one that popped up yesterday. That one went down a little, but this one is huge. So up to 2 large breakouts. UPDATE: I got another similar lump on my chin, so 3. Lol this is weird, I don't get these often let alone 3 within 1 day. I havent been eating any sugar other than fruit, and mostly low fat meals. I wonder if it could be skincare products, though unlikely. The fact that all of them are in the same area makes me think it means something, and I have no clue what.

Hey, I just looked through your log, and I wanted to ask about inositol, since you've been taking it for a while. I just started taking it yesterday at the dose of 1/8 of a teaspoon, and I wanted to know if you've had any side effects like weight gain. I am super nervous about new hormonal stuff and hope I get no weird side effects!

Hi there! I did have some side effects in the beginning. I probably gained about 5 pounds, also I would feel really sleepy during the day, and felt like my body required more sleep at night. I have some OCDish tendencies/anxiety and that did get worse especially when I increased the dosage. Funny because it's actually used to treat OCD. All of the side effects kind of went away within 3 months or so. I started exercising and eating healthier eventually so I lost weight (not sure if that would have happened by itself). My skin got better within 2 weeks of taking it, there was no initial breakout. I hope this helps ^.^



Day 26: Got another large breakout on left side of chin (came from a closed comedone). Though there is not a lot of inflammation or pain right now, it's pretty big. I decided to try popping one of the vit A softgels I take and apply it to my skin to see if it helps. The smell is awful (fishy), don't know if I can put up with that. Maybe not every day.
