Skin has been pretty much the same. Will be good for a while then get shit again. Endless repetitive pattern. Last few months i tried fish [cod liver] oil and Vitamin D, i've never trusted the fish oil but i thought i'd try anyway, it certainly didn't help and if anything my skin was as bad as ever with a few nasty breakouts so i just stopped. My sleep and digestion has been shit recently so hard to blame any food in particular really. One thing to note is i have had a few of
I started taking Nizoral shampoo (active ingredient ketoconazole) a couple of weeks ago. I think around the 22nd of October. So it's been a couple of weeks now. I think it's an anti-fungal and anti-dandruff shampoo and i have been using it on my face and scalp after a shower. I remember seeing it being mentioned as somehow working for acne as well, i think it is supposed to be a DHT inhibitor, or something like that, it can reduce sebum production maybe. I have never bothered with it in th
I tried to stop obsessing over my acne last few months, without so much success to be honest. I tried limiting eggs for a while and nightshades but didn't seem to do anything, as usual. I have also been trying to eat less foods that make me fart, hoping there is some kind of ludicrous connection between farting and acne lol. That means less fruit and veg and wheat, if any, which means eating like a weirdo and then the inevitable binges like the big girl I am. Acne was so so for last few we
I stopped my no/low sugar diet yesterday [saturday 25 May 2013] because i have continued to have bad breakouts last few days and the whole thing is just doing my head in. I haven't eaten any processed sugar at all for a few weeks and nothing sweet for 5 days or so but my breakouts continue. My skin is worse than average and even if it is some kind of purge or Initial breakout i am not in a position to go through all this at the moment. I don't see the point in depriving myself and eating l
After a week or so of no sugar [processed sugar / table sugar etc] i have now removed anything sweet at all since Monday [20th May 2013]. Apart from some smallish amounts in some small amounts of condiments i couldn't avoid and about 100 grams of blueberries twice. I am still breaking out badly on face. Back is actually good. Scalp as normal - handful but not bad. Seriously fucking annoying, On face it is the nasty painful red spots i can get which tond
After a chocolate binge on Thursday the 9th May and Friday the 10th i have completely removed all refined sugar from my diet + milk. I had a very bad breakout 2/3days after the chocolate binge so from the ~13th but this only last for a few days or so and started cleaning up from about last weds/thurs[15/16]. Something to note is that i also started eating fruit from the 9th May onwards so this well could of been the culprit rather/plus the chocolate. Although i compellingly rem
The last few weeks i abandoned my low fibre and low residue bs and actually did low starch lolzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. nearly 4 weeks of low starch did jack shit so i abandoned that itself on Monday lolzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. And now the last 2 days [9+ 10 May] i have basically abandoned everything and just binged like a big ass bitch. Diet report 9 + 10 May. lemon, vitamin c. Blueberries, Apple, Pineapple juice, Cherry tomatoes, 4 scrambled eggs, Parmesan cheese, salt, pepper
Starting a week or so ago i decided to try a low fibre/fructose/fructans diet jsut to see what would happen. First week has been fucked up by my faggish chocolate binging. Reasons for / Hypothesis etc I have been farting a lot, whole gut bacteria connection etc. Most foods that make me fart are high fibre. I am basically proposing that there is a link between me fartign and my acne. Problem is that most foods that make me fart are "healthy" ie veg and maybe some grains.
Jesus died for our sins, my sin being eating chocolate ffs. From the 30th of March to 3rd of April i ate some chocolate every day. During this time i also happened to have just started a low fibre/fructans/fructose experiment so this chocolate related disaster kind of fucked up that too. In a row i ate: [30,3,13] 40 grams white chocolate [31.3,13] 40 grams white chocolate [1,4,13] 60 grams milk chocolate [2,4,13] 50 grams milk/white chocolate. [3,4,13] 50 grams milk/
I have been using epsom salts topically last few weeks. Dissolved in hot water then left on face for a minute or so in shower. My erythromelalgia has also been worsening during this time which has led to broken/worse quality sleep. Could be coincidental but i'm sure i have made this association before. Probably coincidental and other possible factors such as weird weather etc but with breakouts continuing pointless carrying on. Seems unlikely i will never get through my shit l
As per title been using Epsom salts dissolved in hot water, in shower, instead of salt, for the last 2 weeks. RESULTS 1ST WEEK Skin very good. Face was clearing up nicely. Couple of biggish ones in hair near back of neck. 2ND WEEK All went to shit. New breakouts on face. - one near ear, sideburn near temple, First spot on cheek for ages - led me to stop "experiment" - suspect it was affecting erythromelalgia so pointless if it isnt even stopping spots. St
After eating the following one evening i then spent that night and the following morning with some of the worst Gas i have ever had: Salad: Iceberg Lettuce, Spinach, Cucumber, Tomatoes, Olives, Capers, Apple cider vinegar, Olive oil, Mustard, Honey, pepper, Cottage cheese, Quark. Potato salad with scallions [spring onions] 2 Small jacket potatoes Chicken with cornmeal, herbs, coriander, salt and pepper. Not sure why it was so bad, s
Erythromelalgia was very bad on monday night [4,3,2013] Not sure why. Possible factors include: Small amount of strawberry jam eaten that evening made with glucose-fructose syrup. Chicken in black bean sauce meal eaten. Also had some minor reflux that evening. Started taking zinc a few days before. Had some crunchy nut cornflakes Feet were very cold that night before going to bed - could just be the chilblain rebound type thing. Cant reme

Zinc Picolinate 50 mg / day : Start date 28 February 2013 As per title i found some of this lying around and i can't remember why i stopped taking ti so i thought i would give it another go again. No doubt i will be quickly reminded why i stopped int he first place. I'm taking it in the mornings on an empty stomach and not eating the casual cases themselves. Skin is much better on face and whole of body today - no new or active spots but obviously means jack shit so far. Ju
About a week ago [around last wednesday ~13/14 th February ] i noticed an horrendous boil/cyst type thing near my ear / sideburn area - wasn't very visible because of sideburn but large and nasty. Similar to one i got just after Xmas - around new years eve. I have gone on to have a few more similar ones on different parts of face. All in all face has been as bad as it ever has been in the past. Around a week ago ]15/16th Feb] had terrible breakout in scalp, luckily hid by hair. Back
I have been taking Betaine HCL on and off for a few weeks now. Maybe a month or so. I stopped for around a week becaus ei was getting weird reflux feelings in throat. At first i thought my skin was getting better but was just coincidental. Skin has been very bad last week or so, so started takign it again. Erythromelalgia has been bad last few weeks may or may not be related to betaine hcl. - The tablets stink like cat piss. - need to research what and how they are made from.
From last Wednesday [23rd January 2013] i starting having the symptoms of a cold, ie runny nose and i had a few bad spots/cold sorish on face. Illness - started noticing on Wednesday - runny nose and sneezing - weird because usually every cold i have starts with a sore throat and follows this pattern. Sore throat - sneezing - nose running - one nostril blocked - blocked sinus - sinus pain - coughing/on chest. But this time was only ever a runny nose with sneezing - none of the
Skin over Christmas and into new year has been bad. Not so bad, average to good on face apart from boil type thing on side of face and infected hair thing on chin. Bad on back and in scalp. Must be doing something. Things to note: Eatign too much cereal and carbs in one go. Stopped Vitamin b5 so maybe it was doing something. FARTING LOTS. Boil thing on side of face - weird next to eyebrow wasnt spot more like a boil - Nasty - maybe be caused
I started taking Colostrum on 9th January 2013 [last Wednesday]. It is 12 hr freeze dried ultra colostrum (30% IgG) by Myprotein. http://www.myprotein.com/uk/products/ultra-colostrum I am/will be taking it every day or every other day or so. Usually with whey powder and milk. I am taking around 6-8 grams per time.
[15 DEC 2012] My hair has never been thick and always quite thin but i have noticed it has definitely got much thinner during the last couple of months which also happens to coincide with the time i have been taking Vitamin B5 [Pantothenic Acid]. I have been taking ~ 1.2 grams Vitamin B5 [Pantothenic Acid] with ~1.2 Acetyl-L-Carnitine since the beginning of October. My skin has gotten better but there has also been other factors such as taking turmeric for the last month
Up until this wednesday my skin was as clear as it has ever been for years. I have been messing around with supplements and been taking turmeric for about 3 weeks so it could of been that. But Then on Wednesday had breakout between eyes and then on forehead - also couple of spots on back. And I have been badly depressed last few weeks/month or so, worst in my life [could be supplements] with a noticeable reduction in my hormone levels. I started feeling a bit better the l
Bad breakout 5th-7th November. On Wednesday when i woke up i noticed a pre spot pain between my eyebrows, one mark on one cheek that faded quickly and one small white head on other cheek. I then did a salt scrub on Wednesday night which i think led to a further breakout on forehead - although could be completely coincidental. Spot between eyes got slightly raised and red but didnt come to a head and is now diying. Bad spot appeared on forehead thursday and by today had come t
