In Topic: Mini Pill Help

19 July 2013 - 03:00 AM

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"


In Topic: adult women with acne - chin breaking out

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!


In Topic: Acne Mainly Around The Mouth And Chin?

Definitely with LewisS on this one - I've just started using organic homemade toothpaste and no new cysts on my chin for 2 days where since a change of meds (I'm female) I was getting a new cyst every day for a while.
