#3303516 Spiro And Potassium

Posted by LoveGreenSmoothies on 18 November 2012 - 05:33 PM

I agree with Hearts. I wanted to say I didn't think spiro was for you since you seem to have so many issues, bt I stopped myself, because I know how awful acne can be, especially when you know theres something that works, but you can't use. I feel so bad for you because I get it. But you can't take something that will potentially kill you. There has to be so something else you can take. Why can't you use bcp again? I remember telling you you should try it but don't remember if you can't use it for some reason.

Is your thyroid still out of whack? Thyroid issues can cause acne and mess up your hormones. Maybe it's bc of your thyroid that your k goes down, because I don't understand how else it would -- it seems like it would have to be some underlying health issue but idk.

I hope you are able to figure something out that works for you.

Put Vaseline under your eyes before the Bp. Sometimes topicals travel. It happened to me before w. Bp and retin a. Vaseline will prevent it from entering your skin there.

You should get a complete hormonal panel done to check your levels of estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA, SHBG. Go to a endocrinologist or maybe even a derm who can run them. An OB/GYN may do it too, but the best is an endo.

Something is off. I'd get tested during the time your skin flares up.

#3161138 The OIL CLEANSING METHOD (Highly Recommended!)

Well that's because you get an initial purging. It's pulling out all the gunk for good... You can't just give up. You have to give your skin time.

Oh I call BS. I'm so sick of hearing about this "purging" nonsense. A lot of times when people 'purge' it just means it will never work and they're headed for cystic acne and scarring. I fell for the purging crap and ended up with monster acne and scarring. If something breaks you out, you stop. And like someone else said, oils can't clean your face and people with acne have a ton of bacteria that needs to be washed away.

Thank you for taking the time to write all this out!

I would like to add, if it isn't in a link here, that for estrogen dominance, cruciferous vegetables are VERY helpful. Cruciferous veggies being: cauliflower, cabbage, brussel sprouts, and broccoli. I recall kidney beans being good as well. It really helps people with this and with PCOS, because they lower estrogen via some mechanism I can't recall.  wink.gif
