okay hi guys

so... in the past 5 DAYS my skin went from suppeerrrr clear... to completely, totally covered in limps . My face is swollen, itchy, painful, hot to the tough, it looks awful, and it just doesnt seem like acne but idk.

I started my period... but it lasted a DAY... and no im not pregnant.

That doesn't sound like acne to me, and considering all the other symptoms you're getting I'd go see a doctor asap. It could be a bad allergic reaction or something...not sure about the 1 day period though. Still, it doesn't sound like something that can be resolved by acne.org forums. 


Would like to hear some updates though! Hopefully it's nothing serious. :) 

How I Stay Clear:
AMCetaphil DermaControl Oil Control Foam Wash, Cetaphil Moisturising Lotion, Cetaphil DermaControl Oil-Absorbing Lotion (SPF30)
PMCetaphil DermaControl Oil Control Foam Wash, Tactuo (Epiduo), MUAC 10% Mandelic Acid Serum
ExtrasDiane 35 (since July 2 2013), Borghese Fango Delicato Mud Mask (2x/week), 25% Mandelic Acid Peel (2x/week)

a photo would help...

Supplements: inositol, DIM [not as frequently now!] digestive enzymes [don't need them every day anymore, only on cheat days], herpanacine & vitamin C with rose hips/ low acid [not every day], regular sun exposure for vitamin D3, superoxide dismutase (SOD) enzyme supplements, magnesium citrate [sometimes]. 

Lifestyle & Skin Care: Low histamine diet, avoiding unnecessary stress, balancing skin's PH (using Image Ormedics), using distilled/ filtered water to wash face, occasional high frequency facials...
