I understand COMPLETELY what you are going through. I am 47 years old and suffering the worst acne I have ever had. I always had acne since I was 17, but it was bearable until my early 40s. That's when it turned cystic. I was dealing with it ok bc I would get one or 2 cysts a month, go get a cortisone shot and be done with it for awhile. That is not the case anymore. 4 months ago my skin went absolutely haywire. I have no idea why. I have broken out every single day for the last 4 months, my face is an absolute mess. I cry just about everyday.
I had blood tests done, my first one came back testosterone very high, next one came back in normal range. I do believe its hormonal. I was prescribed spiro and have been taking it for the last month. I've had massive breakouts, but i'm holding faith that it will kick in eventually, its truly my last hope.
I've found it harder to deal with it at this age, its just so embarrassing to be suffering from acne at this age. I see nobody at my age dealing with this. I've been too embarrassed to go out..Thank god for my wonderful husband, friends and the super support here. I would lose my head if I didn't find the support that I've found here.
I wish I could give you some great advice, but i'm at a loss too. You will find a lot of great info and support on this site. Even though I can't give you advice, I can give you any support you need...Just know you are not alone!
