How is your diet?

Try going no dairy, lean white meats and veggies. Drink a gallon + of water per day and sweat.

Take a shower within half an hour of being finished exercising if possible.

Foods that help with acne in my diet include:

-Wild caught salmon

-Chicken

-BROWN rice

-Garlic cloves (you want to cut these and expose them to air for 10 minutes before eating. The precut do not have near as much nutritional value

-Artichoke

-Tomatoes

-Onions

-Squash

-Broccoli

-Almonds

-Walnuts

-WATER Lots of it.

Lastly, I use the acne.org regimen which helped about 70% (just the bp and aha). The rest is my diet and a little secret called Lavender oil. I use the lavender oil on my back during the day and bp/aha at night. Hope this helps!

I would second diet changes but if that doesn't work, please go see a dermatologist. This is the type of acne accutane is meant to help.


It's a rocky road but like everything else in life, there is always a beginning and an end. Here's to finding my end.

God is good to me..........more than I deserve.

James 1:2-4

Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.

Man, I am sorry you're dealing with that. Your story sounds terrible. I can imagine you're feeling like hell right about now.

A few things I suggest sort of mimics the previous posters...for example, clean up your diet as best you can. Although there is weak research that diets cause acne, you will want to make sure you're eating and living healthy so to reap the health benefits of good nutrition since your body is dealing with this infection.

Also, I would work extra hard at scouting out the best dermatologist in treating acne and go seem them. Don't settle for a doctor who you don't trust or doesn't listen to you with quality attention. Also, your condition is exactly why drugs like accutane and roaccutane exist. I would inquire with your doctor about taking them. And even prescription drug therapy can be adjusted with dosing to balance it's therapeutic actions with your side effects.

And definitely start on an acne treatment regimen for cleansing with topical treatment and be consistent with it. You might want to purchase products from Acne.org or acnepractice.com or proactive solution. However, your condition is severe so it will probably require advanced therapy than the run of the mill OTC products. Make sure you find a good doctor...that will be key for you. Body acne is not like face acne, it's much more stubborn and takes longer to heal up, so stay the course with whatever treatment and cleansing regimen you choose. Be encouraged because acne can be managed and treated with positive results and improvements. Not everyone responds the same way to the same drugs; sometimes regimens, dosages, and drugs have to be customized. It sounds like you are experiencing a phase of "trial and error" in attempting to discover what treatment will work and will not work. Give it time and be patient. It will get better. Acne will not control your life forever. -rm

OMG, bless your heart. I researched it and I think Kinso 89 is spot on. Look at these images and information about acne congoblota: http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/1072716-overview. Looks like and oral steroid to get you over the hump and a full run of Accutane would be where to start. I suggest consulting with a rheumologist to discuss inflammatory and autoimmune disorders that may be tied in with this. Best wishes and please post and update as to how you are doing.

SOOOO much better. I'm happy for you! Did your dermatologist give you a diagnosis?

There are various types of laser treatments available. One type is for scarring and even successful with burn scars. It is my understanding that if you have sensation in the area it can be painful. But I would suggest researching it. However, you may not be able to take it while on certain meds.

Thanks for the update.
