Have you tried anti-histamine with any effect? And on that note, do you know any good sites with a list of histamine and anti-histamine foods?

Might be a good thing, that the green tea is helping your body in expelling the toxins. But then what the hell do I know? This is acne we're talking about.

On the subject of Omega oils from fish via supplements and the recent studies claiming them to cause cancer:

I think the idea is to use nothing. Nothing to irritate your skin. Try not even using water. Your skin most likely will dry and crack and purge as it heals (may take time).


In Topic: My Battle Of Acne To Redness (Picture Story)

Thanks Doodle! I appreciate your insight. I am and have always been very petite even though anyone who knows me will tell you I eat a LOT. I can put it away lol. I am 5'3 and 95 lbs. I can eat whatever I want and as much as I want and never gain a pound. I have always been really thin and small framed. I have not ever been on a diet of any kind, probably eat poorly sometimes, but I try to eat nutritious/healthy meals because being thin does not necessarily mean I'm eating healthy.

My skin is pretty normal but definitely more on the oily side. It has never been dry except for when I was young and I would wash my face and use acne creams and no moisturizer. There were days that my face was extremely dry but I was not treating it properly then and did not put 2 and 2 together. I had to look up Candida. Didn't know what it was. I don't have any of those internal symptoms either.

Hormones have never been tested but I have been on BC pills. When given to me, she said it would clear up my skin. It didn't really. There are not really any trends or patterns with my skin during the month either.

I am glad the tea tree oil seems to be doing great things for my skin. From what I've read and what you say about it I feel like it just makes sense! The whole theory of demodex mites crossed my mind too. Too many of those mites can really affect the appearance of skin for some people.

 

All acne is hormone induced. I believe, without the secretion of oil, nobody would have acne. And the consistency of a person's oil who has acne, tends to be very waxy. I think perhaps the over-proliferation of dead skin cells is because of the abundance of oil, bacteria and inflammation within the hair follicle.

I haven't seen a mention of antibiotics, have you ever tried a course of them?
