#3416056 A Desperate Plea For Help My Son Has Severe Acne

Posted by txngrl on 23 February 2014 - 01:05 AM

"I 100% believe that diet is a contributing factor here.
The removal of milk, combined with the continued used of the Stieva A topical, his antibiotic & the addition of a pro biotic & gentle cleansing & moisturising routine seems to be producing steady results right now.
this was taken this morning.."

Um, YEAH- I can see the results so far. Wow!!! What a difference!  He already looks way better. Keep doing what you're doing, and I agree that he should take a probiotic as well.  Dairy free, of course. He is clearly sensitive to dairy, and you might also consider having him tested for a wheat intolerance. I know, he's a teenager, & it's nearly impossible to ask them to change their diets. I have a teenage son too, who had severe cystic acne.
I wish him & you the best. And I hope his skin keeps improving!!

Oops- I meant to quote OneProudMumma above, but instead I copied & pasted  sorry

Congratulations, you look great!   Can I ask how bad it was on your back? My son has it bad on his back & he's on day 41.  I'm concerned but I know (from what they tell me) the back is the last to clear.  Do you have any before/after photos of your back?

#3324706 Vitamin D Has Cured Me Of Oily Skin And Acne

Posted by txngrl on 05 February 2013 - 06:42 PM

Hello everyone!   Well, I took my son to get a blood test, and the results came back today... his Vit. D level is 32  :(    But I'm actually kinda glad, b/c it gives me hope that maybe we're on the right track, and maybe just maybe, that's why his skin has been so oily and constantly breaking out...


Today is day #11 of supplementing, and I *think* it's looking better.... looking less oily, and he doesn't seem to be getting new lesions as quickly on his face.  The ones he IS getting seem to be smaller, more superficial bumps that come to a head quicker and go away faster... but I don't want to speak too soon.  I can only hope it keeps getting better.


HOWEVER, his back looks horrible still, and his neck/shoulders also...  Chest is broken out too, but not nearly as bad as his back.  I will keep him on this regimen for several more weeks and pray that everything keeps improving!   I'm not super worried about his back right now, as it's not swimming season, but as it gets closer to summer, I will be more concerned about it.  He loves to go swimming, and we live in the South where it gets really hot..  redface.gif

It looks like an allergic reaction, maybe to the sulfites.  Glad it's gone now smile.png


Try organic wine and see if it happens again.
