Underlying illness and Acne???

Recommended Posts

Dear all,

I have in the past five months suffered severe acne, with immense swelling on both sides of my face. I have seen many derms and they are all puzzled by the onset each saying it is the most severe case of acne they have ever seen.

It started with the swelling and then the acne. I have also had headaches, flu symptons, dizziness and I have had to quit my job it has got so bad. This symptons have continued now for five months and my acne is no better. I am currently taking accutane.

What possible could be wrong and why has this happened all of a sudden? I am 28yrs old and have never had problem skin or get ill that often? I am very confused.

The doctors agree that this is very puzzling and are testing me for all sorts.

Any ideas or similar experiences would be greatly welcomed!
