Perioral Dermatitis Due To Laser Hair Removal?

28 June 2013 - 07:48 AM

Hi, I have been having acne and Perioral Dermatitis in my chin area for some years now. Lately I reduced my laser sessions and have also seen an improvement in my skin. However, last week I went for another laser session and this week I have again a big breakout on my chin. It is not normal acne but an enormous pimple fluid-filled and very red. I have had it many times before.


I am starting to think that my acne and perioral dermatitis may be related to the hair removal. I tried doing some search but didn't find many info.


Anyone experienced a similar case?

Detoxing Period? How Long Will It Take?

20 March 2013 - 12:48 AM


I'm a 32-year old female and I'm going through a holistic treatment to treat my cystic chin acne (I don't have acne anywhere else).

Two weeks ago the naturopath changed the supplements (added Omega 3 and some liver detoxing pills) and I started breaking out terribly. I look worse than ever. He said this might be the detox period but I don't know if I will be able to handle this much longer.


Anyone with similar experiences? How long did the "detox period" take?



Extreme Thirst + More Sebum Production

13 September 2012 - 01:53 AM

I'm following a strict Paleo diet for 1 month now and I had an amazing improvement.
However, in the last 3 days I have experienced extreme thirst and also a much more greasy skin, specially in the chin area (where my acne and perioral dermatits was mainly).
I also developed three small cysts (for the first time since I started Paleo). Anyone here has experienced this reaction of extreme thirst followed by greasy skin?

I'm now in day 19 of my cycle, in case this is important.


Homeopathy For Acne - Has It Worked For Anyone?

19 August 2012 - 01:18 AM

Before starting my paleo diet I also visited an homeopath and I'm currently taking some homeopatic medication.
I have seen a slight improvement but don't know whether it is a result of diet or homeopathy.
Has homeopathy worked for anyone?
