In Topic: Perioral Dermatitis Due To Laser Hair Removal?

28 June 2013 - 10:43 AM

I've had acne all my life, but not on my chin. I started developing acne on my chin after 3-4 sessions, but it isn't like the acne I am used to. It's like a big inflamed pimple with several heads that look like fluid-filled. When I pop it there is some watery pus coming out but it does not look at all like the regular pimples I get in other parts of my face. A dermatologist diagnosed me with Perioral Dermatitis but couldn't tell me about the cause.

I find interesting your last point. This is exactly what my naturopath told me.

You're absolutely right on this point. I'm actually waiting for my tests to check my diaminoxidase levels. If they are low, then that would mean histamine rich foods could cause several problems to my body.

Hi Deja,
I'm a girl dealing with the same problem, so you are not alone.
I've been on a strict paleo for 2.5 months. So far, I improved a lot in my overall acne (acne I usually had around my jawline, ears, an odd spot on the cheeks, blackheads on my nose and generally greasy skin. This is all gone.). However, my biggest problem is the acne around my chin and this one is still there. I've done a lot of reading and finally decided this was something too complicated for me to deal with so I went to the experts. I would suggest you to get a good doctor, better if it is a holistic one, and get some tests done.
I've had a stool test done and found out I lack many bacteria, so now I will need to tackle this. Regarding my hormonal acne (the one in my chin) it's helped me a lot to check my basal temperature everyday and use an online application to record all my symptoms, as well as ovulation day, etc. it's incredible how much related it is. Try to eat super healthy from your ovulation day until you're passed your period, it will help you a little. I have another appointment next month so I will update you on my progress and how the doctor decides to tackle the hormonal issue.

In my case I also developed this type of cystic acne last year even though I had acne all my life. Don't know why.

Since the bloating and gas started, I seem to becoming more constipated, not less.

That's really weird, water kefir gave me the opposite.
