In Topic: Your Chin Acne May Not Be Hormonal!

5 days in using homemade toothpaste and the daily cystic lumps on my chin from changing bcp have stopped! no new spots on my chin for about 3 days! I'm so so pleased. Keeping fingers crossed this continues!

In Topic: Mini Pill Help

I started cerazette a month ago after years on the combined pill. It really is great except I started coming out with cysts on my chin, almost a new one everyday. 5 days ago i made my own toothpaste - essentially fluoride/SLS free and no new spots for about 3/4 days. I really do think that excess sebum (due to the drop in oestrogen when coming off the combined pill) reacts with fluoride to cause cystic lumps.


Google "fluoroderma cystic"

Yep, only on my chin. Was getting one new one a day pretty much. 5 days in and no new spots still, not even whiteheads and the weird clogged pores i've had under my bottom lip for years appear to be getting smaller.


Toothpaste is coconut oil, baking soda, xylotil, spearmint oil, calcium/magnesium powder. Plenty of recipes if you google. I also use hydrogen peroxide 3% as a mouthwash.


THe cysts started not long after going onto the progestogen only pill after years on the combined pill. I firmly believe that the excess sebum reacts with fluoride somehow. My chin was spotty on the combined pill but it took on a whole new lease of life with the mini pill.


Although my chin has always been the worst, up until recently i had spots on my whole face and they've been given the heave-ho with the oil cleansing method, been clear for weeks now. Just my chin still an issue - still waiting for the old spots and cysts to heal. Might actually start thinking about what to do for my scarring now!

cysts only around ur mouth?


what recipe are u using for toothpaste?

Toothpaste! I stopped using commercial toothpaste a few days ago and for the last 2 days I have had no new spots on my chin (which at the moment is a miracle) I think it's the fluoride - google fluoride and acne. I make my own so I know what's in it and rinse my mouth with hydrogen peroxide to make sure I kill any nasties that the homemade toothpaste doesn't get.


I've posted this on about 3 different threads today I know, but I promise it was relevant to all of them!

Changed my toothpaste to homemade a few days ago and no new cysts for two days - was pretty much getting a new one daily. Plus no new whiteheads, pustules etc. Thinking my skin didn't like fuoride. Will report back in a week or so.
