I'm a little confused by your post. Have you had acne before? Have you added anything new to your routine lately?

Hm, that's unusual. It sounds like more of a reaction to me since you say it's itchy. Did you eat anything new, use any new shampoos, hair products, or detergents?

Hemp seed could have done it. I'm not sure about the correlation with the fever. I tried looking up fever and pimples and a lot of information comes up and it's hard to sort through. Since you had a fever and it's itchy maybe you could try taking some advil and benedryl to see if it helps.

Are you sure they aren't hives? How long has it been?

Status: Clear after 30 years. Wow, I guess it's been 6 years, now.

[ Story: Severe Acne since I was 10. 10+ years of Dermatologists, Antibiotics, topicals and ACCUTANE did nothing. Discovered oranges triggered the worst of my cystic acne = about 70% improvement. Tried some nutrient supplements like B-complex with zinc and C, saw palmetto and a BHA like the aspirin mask = more improvement, a lot less oily. Then, Diet changes = Clear.

Regimen: Anti-inflammatory, nutrient dense, blood sugar stabilizing diet and supplements (for hormones, inflammation, aging, health). No soap or other cleanser except for hand washing! Water only or Oil cleanse. Aloe Vera mixed with niacinimide and a high linoleic acid oil for moisturizer and reduce pigmentation.

Diet effects acne in so many ways: hormone balance, inflammation, Insulin levels, digestion, allergies and intolerances, liver function, adrenal function, SHBG levels, sebum quality, cell function and turnover, nutrient deficiencies, body fat, etc. Basic advice: Eat, sleep, supplement and exercise like you are a diabetic. And eat real food!

When you mentioned fever, I thought it could be an allergic reaction. If there's no puss, just red pimples, it could very well be an allergic reaction, perhaps environmental one. Were you around dust or pollen for a long time recently? Or anything else that could have triggered a reaction?


Supplements: inositol, DIM, digestive enzymes [don't need them every day anymore, only on cheat days], herpanacine & vitamin C with rose hips [not every day], regular sun exposure for vitamin D3.

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... (although I have been slacking lately)
