Keloids / Hypertrophic Scarring/ Acne Fulminans : Conglobata

Recommended Posts

I have had moderate acne all my life. Did one extended course of accutane when I was 15. (Which I highly do not recommend) Been on antibiotics most of my life. 
Then when I turned 19, I was attacked by severe inflammatory acne. It was so bad I began to have arthritis pains. I was later hospitalized and diagnosed with Acne Fulminans along with Septic Arthritis. 
I have recently been on a treatment with a course of 60mg Prednisone and 100mg Dapsone. 
I am an extremely healthy young fit human being. I have followed a healthy diet with exercise and good hydration for years. I have eliminated sugar, packaged food, alcohol, dairy and other unnatural foods. 
I have tried EVERYTHING, you name it, and ive probably ingested it or put it on my skin. 
That's just a summary. The physical pain and emotional trauma i have experienced is immense.
Now if this ever recedes I'll be extremely happy. Unfortunately I am left with an uncountable number of scars. 
What do I do with these scars?Screenshot_20170202-152042.png

Oh wow  60mg Prednisone  is extremely strong, it makes your immune system go down. IT has other side effects long term, but if that is all that is working to keep your immune system from responding then continue. 

Keloids / Hypertrophic Scarring/ Acne Fulminans : Conglobata >

Hypertrophic / Keloid scarring can be caused by inflammation and a excess production of collagen.  Some causes are hormones (excess testosterone can make many males prone to it on the chest arms and back), those that are ethnic  are more prone to keloids, ingrown hairs of the hair follicle, genetics, autoimmune disorder, problems in the colon / gut, drugs including antidepressants, pharmaceuticals, and illegal substances, bacterial infection, etc. Think Anti-inflammatory. Excess Sugar, Dairy, Refined Carbs, and Junk Foods can make them worse.  

 

Hypertrophic and keloid scarring, depending on the size, age of the patient, as well as the location. In this case excision and compression earrings were used. Closure was with a flap repair as I use the skin to close the wound without the need for grafting.

 

AT HOME (Always do a test spot and see if you need to dilute further before applying on all scars)

  • If you have zits in addition to scars please use a acne body wash (Amazon) Benzoyl Peroxide or Salicylic Acid, let it sit for 5-10 minutes, before you wash it off. There is a back applicator sold also.

  • Baking soda paste or plaster applied several times on the wound

  • Tea tree oil a few drops in a cup of water with half a tablespoon of salt apply to the keloid several times a day.

  • Frankincense (Boswellia serrata) essential oil or topical is known to be anti inflammatory and healing

  • Onion extract and heparin gel

  • Turmeric Supplement for inflammation. Vitamin D and Zinc, Omega 3 and Magnesium  are needed. Various supplements for inflammation. Serrapeptase is also great for scar tissue and Kota Kola can be taken internally and put on the scars.

  • DIM Supplement, Pantothenic Acid B5, Omega 3, Apple Cider Vinegar (dilute water) pat on scars with a clean cloth

  • Epsom Salt Baths

  • Drink Green Tea and wash the skin with the tea

  • High Dose Vitamin C daily helps with inflammation

  • High Doses of Probiotics, and Kefir. This issue stems from gut/liver/kidney problems

  • CBD topical and internal for inflammation

  • Epsom Salt baths a few days a week can be helpful

  • Ketoconazole or Nizoral shampoo used topically has been known to help some

  • Some do a vegan raw food diet and intermittent fasting to counter the inflation

  • Coffee Enemas or Colonics to Clean out Colon

  • FIR Infrared Sauna can help on the area of concern to calm inflation and release toxins

  • Silicone gel (scar pads are better after they are treated to compress them) can prevent hypertrophic scars and keloids from forming. - Be guided by your dermatologist or plastic surgeon in regards to keloid removal. Keloid scars, ear keloids, chest keloids, back keloids, acne keloids.

  • Sun tanning helps some people with the scars and makes other’s worse, please use sunscreen on your other skin to protect it

  • Sunless tanner can also help “hide” or soften the scars somewhat aesthetically

  • Some get body tattoos, or paramedical tattooing (skin colors) to cover the scars, but they must be completely flat with steriod injections and under control

 

DR’s Treatment

  • Get blood tests done to check DHT and testosterone levels

  • Flogocid cream can be tried topically on the scars, some Dr’s have other preferences for topical steroids

  • Accutane helps some with this conditions and makes others worse, watch your symptoms it can be a cause of the body hypertophic scars. Pseudo-acne fulminans associated with oral isotretinoin - https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4148285/

  • Bad cases, Humira a pharmaceutical for inflammation is also used and effective for inflammatory scars.

  • I did humira once a week for 3 months then every other week for 3 more months.

  • As of last week i now only do one humira injection a month.  This can lower your immune system as your body is fighting against itself. Predisone and an antibiotic are also used in this case to fight infection.

  • Infliximab is a monoclonal antibody that can be used for the treatment

  • Aesthetic Treatment: Hypertrophic Scarring / Keloids are more common in darker ethnic races. - excision of keloids will usually result in recurrence, unless compression or post op radiotherapy is used. - Keloids can also be treated with cryotherapy, steroid injections, botox or 5FU. - Cyroprobing or “freezing them” is a novel but effective method of keloid removal

  • A combination of co2 laser and steroid drip is often used, pulse dye laser can be used for the discoloration. Other methods are electrosurgery and excision.

 

RESOURCES

 

Q: My scars are raised (hypertropic), not indented (atrophic). How can it be treated?

A: This is called hypertropic (aka keloid) scarring and can be treated with silicone sheets (OTC - Walmart, Walgreens, CVS, Boots), liquid silicone, or cortisone injections (provided by dermatologist). Color can be treated with the V-Beam, 1064nm laser, or Picosure/ Picoway. The treatment options include laser ablation, electrodessication, or surgical excision. Other options for the treatment of elevated scars include injection of bleomycin, cryotherapy, topical application of imiquimod, flurandrenolide, tacrolimus, and silicon gel. Laser Steroid Drip to the Scars.

 

Intralesional injection of botulinum toxin has been shown to reduce scar formation. Pressure, flavonoids, TGF, mannose-phosphate, and IFN25 were also listed as helpful.

 

Keloid scars, different from hypertropic, are scars with tendencies to invade the peripheral tissue, expanding in size, and growing persistently. Keloid scars should not be treated by way of surface destruction.

  • Hypertrophic scars - are scars that are raised above the skin surface but remain within the boundaries of the original injury. Scarring and can be treated with silicone sheets , liquid silicone, or cortisone injections (provided by dermatologist). Color can be treated with the V-Beam / QuadroStar Pro Yellow Laser. The treatment options include laser ablation, electrodessication, or surgical excision. Other options for the treatment of elevated scars include injection of bleomycin, cryotherapy, topical application of imiquimod, flurandrenolide, tacrolimus, and silicon gel. Laser steroid drip to the scars. Intralesional injection of botulinum toxin has been shown to reduce scar formation. Pressure, flavonoids, TGF, mannose-phosphate, and IFN25 were also listed as helpful.

  • Keloid scars - which are raised scars that extend BEYOND the boundaries of the original sore, blemish or injury. It is scar tissue gone wild. It can continue to grow. Some people are genetically prone to keloid scarring. (Treatments are the same as Hypertrophic Scars above, with steroid injection & cryosurgery being the number one treatment for the raised texture).

Yes, I am not happy about the 60mg of prednisone, it's caused numerous side affects, as well as I am terrified to stop taking it and see if the acne stays receded. (Hopefully the dapsone will kick in). 
I cannot thank you enough for the reply. Their are not a lot of places to look for advice on this kind of topic,  and everyone has different skin. I really appreciate you informing me of the many different laser treatments. I have a lot more to ask my dermatologist and investigate. 
I do have a cryotherapy clinic close by. A session last about 2min of shoulders down submersion at about -180°. Would this be worth considering trying for a couple weeks? 
I have a fear of laser treatment. I worry it will damage or weaken my skin more, and possibly my acne may return after the procedure. 
I believe in everything natural. I have recently been putting on coconut oil, hemp seed oil, almond oil, vitamin e, shea butter, honey, aloe vera, and taking salt baths over the last two months. As well as my diet is amazing with lots of hydration and many supplement. I exercise everyday and try to get 5min of sun. (With the possibility of sun making scars worse if exposed too long.)
I would guess 90% of the scars are done by picking. Which is slowly but strongly being resolved by meditation. 
If anything personally I  have found that helps with acne, and through years of research and consistently trying everything. ( yes I have had clear skin off and on)
I recommend bpa and chemical free water, extremely healthy natural (Ital) diet, exercise, stretching, meditation or self love. Not showering or washing skin all the time (the body has natural oils you are stripping away!) 
Drinking lots of tea as well as looking towards lots of herbs and botanicals for potential aid. Medicinal mushrooms, turmeric, and rhodiola standing out the most. 
And sex. My acne (Fulminans) is hormonal or an over abundance of testosterone disrupting the endocrine system, most likely true for many guys with acne. Or stress related. But I strongly belive sex can regulate hormones and heal the body. 
I will be updating this post with pictures for myself and whoever may view on the procedures I take.

hello dwalth

perhaps talk to your dermatologist about getting blood tests done to check your DHT and testosterone levels.
they contribute to acne
there is treatment for hormonal acne

i also notice that you mention that you use supplements
steroids cause acne (raises testosterone), and some supplements may exacerbate acne

i am not entirely certain, but i believe the bodybuilding supplements, creatine and glutamine, may exacerbate acne.  do not quote me on this, check google :)

Since the last post i have made. I have switched off the dapsone and started a low dose of accutane, 10mg every other day for a month. Then 20mg every other day. While remaining on 40mg of prednisone.
My diet is extremely healthy with 60+liters of water daily. I do not drink soda, or eat anything out of a package. I believe strongly in avoiding BPA, gluten, fluoride, high fructose corn syrup, refined sugar, sodium, and many other deadly chemicals.

 This is the third time i have done accutane in my life. By the 5th week my skin was drastically even worse. I am now broken out on my arms and lower back. Towards my buttox.

I now feel like a science expirement. 
I have seen 4 dermatologists, 2 rheumatologist, a GI doctor, and changed my primary care doctor 3 times. As well as i have been hospitalized for a week when i first diagnosed with septic arthritis because of mt acne. The amount of testing that has been done on me is outrageous. Numerous MRIs, countless blood tests for everything that exists or can be found in blood in 2016-2017, and a gamma ray white blood cell test. 

After my derm realized the accutane was making my inflammation worse. We both concluded and agreed this is what most likely caused my "acne fulminans."  Noting that the only body building supplement  I have ever taken is protein. The rest are to help inflammation. Nor have i ever done anabolic steriods.
My derm put me on the biological called Humira, 2 injections the first day. And one injection every 2 weeks. And was told to finally taper of prednisone. 

By the end of 4th week. I was put in the ER for a fever of 102 while on humira. I was about to be admitted to the hospital but the ER talked to my rheum and derm and agreed to let me go home with a low dose of prednisone and clindamycin (antibiotic). The fever was caused by "acne fulminans" and not by an infection. But i am taking the antibiotics because my white blood cell count is 19,000. And it prevents infection considering humira depresses my immune system.

On april 27th I visited my derm and was put on 1 humira injection every week. Which im now doing.  Also in my very in depth research (name something I havent tried the last 4 years of my life) I
discovered an enzyme under the name of "Serrapeptase," which im going to be trying for scars and dead skin.  

Not seeing much improvement. As well as a lot of my joint pain has returned. 

Full of fear.

Stay healthy

Bro for the acne itself I would try this for like a month.  Take like 1000MG of Vitamin C Daily/ bi daily.  Take an epsom salt bath like 2-3 times per week.   That shit shit should clear up majority of your acne.  I was in a similar situation from playing sports daily for like 20 years.  I think the back acne itself has a lot to do with hormones.   You can also try taking Lysine but that can make you feel sort of weird/shitty.  I think if you give it a whirl you will be pleasantly surprised at the results.

Visited my derm again yesterday. The reason being i had a bad rash come up all over my thighs, back of arms, and collar bone/neck area. Little tiny patches of hard bumps.
My derm diagnosed me with "Keratosis Pilaris" or "Chicken Skin."
My derm stated that this is caused by the Humira. I was prescribed "Triamcinolone Lotion" for my body. And a "Clindamycin Lotion" for my crouch/thigh area. 
I also purchased a juicer today, so im going to be juicing lots of fresh greens and  vegetables or roots for another way to heal within. 
Status: I would say 75% of cystic acne on back as reduced. My neck is around half reduced considering its on a hairline. My face and most other acne is surface level. I have an uncountable number of scars and black heads. Will post another picture soon.
Next appointment with derm is May 30th. 

Eat Healty and drink healthy!

Ive tried tons of different vit. C supplements from many different companies. I eat oranges and tangerines instead now. I know that C helps collagen repair and is suppose to heal scars as well. Its a little hormones but mainly my immune system is trying to eat itself. 
I am interested in trying "lysine" since it regulates protein synthesis. And all ther "Keratin" or blackheadsin my skin are an abundance or too much protein. So i could see how "lysine" could have potential to regulate my bodies keratin production. I also am a fan of enzymes. Thanks for the reply.

Ahh yes i do believe my gut is destroyed. I have been on antibiotics all my life and just finished a course of a month long "clindamycin."
I do regularly eat yogurt and raw honey for my gut, as well as small amounts of "kombucha" (this chronic disease put my down a serious health freak path) so i do understand what your saying. I have never tried butter milk. But i have drank a gallon of ACV in my lifetime. As well as tons of hemp oil. I took flax seed oil in a gel supplement before. Never heard of onion for a scar removal so ill try this.
thanks for the reply!

i also forgot to mention i buy huge bags of epsom salt, dead sea salt, and Himalayan salt off of amazon. I mix them all and bath and soak for 30min. Helps itching and smooths the skin and knocks a lot of debris off. 
But i favor oatmeal baths now.

Nah, as i said in a post before i have never used "anabolic steroids." I have lifted weights all my life and the only workout supplent i used was a lot of protein.
I do not just have acne. I have an Autoimmune Disease that causes my bodies immune system to attack itself, causing horrible joint pain and severe acne. My doctors belive i have PAPA syndrome which caused Aseptic Arthritis. 
For a while, the acne was least of problems. I was in so much inflamed pain i couldn't even walk. 
To answer your question though i got my disease and acne from "Genetic Predisposition."
In my opinion its all just human evolution. We evolve and mix genes, and we find problems in those new genes. The cancerous food and drink we consume do not help either. 
Genetic mutation through what we consume is reality. Look into it

Humira has defeintely worked. The side effects i have noticed are coordination loss, depth percepetion is different, balance is off, and i have diziness/fatigue with some rare tingling in my feet and arms.
Humira remains to be the only drug i am using to combat this.
 
The last year of my life has really put me through a lot. This is a picture of what everything looks like as of now. 
I AM HAPPY TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS
STAY HEALTHY

Acne Fulminans is a tough one, I am glad you found something that works for you!!!

Humira is a effective  immunosuppressant with some side effects. Hopefully in the future they come up with something that does't not give you the diziness /fatigue. Perhaps discuss with your doctor lowering the dose or taking as needed. Do they think you have to take Humira indefinitely? 

I don't know if you want to do some scar discoloration work but vascular laser could help on the back with the pigmentation. Try 1064nm, IPL/BBL, V-beam, etc...

Hey Dwalth
i realise this is an old thread but couldn't help wanting to let you know of some things to maybe look into if you're still struggling with any of these issues. 
i also have arthritis and stumbled across 'the paddison program' recently. It's a natural approach to healing arthritis through diet and exercise. The basis of it is that a unhealthy gut/unbalanced microbiome among others is one cause of arthritis (this seems to line up almost perfectly with your heavy use of antibiotics and prednisone which can damage the gut).  Many success stories online, I thought you might want to check it out.
for the scarring, maybe also look at dermarolling for you haven't already heard of it,  have read it can be effective for scarring. Also, check out the link between using the anti dandruff/antifungal shampoo  nizoral (ketoconazole) as body wash and acne fulminans.  I have read that it works against DHT. Each of these have better info if you research into them individually via google, just pointing u in the direction of these possible treatment options if you haven't heard of them before. Have you got an update about how you're doing?

Been a long time since i have posted. After a very long and extensive process of trying numerous options to help my situation i can say i have improved tremendously. I would say HUMIRA is the science that helped more than half of my improvement. But the side affects are noticable and if insurance didnt cover it, i would not have been able to pay out of pocket. I have slowly been stopping the Humira injections with little inflammation in my body which is the best part. I still try to remain extremely healthy with diet, exercise, hydration, supplements, and other homeopathic options. Overall my skin is just left over scars and seems to be more sensitive. The scars dont bother me too much but they are not pleasant. If i can list a few things that really helped me for scars and inflammation period, they would be salt baths,( all different kinds of salts, dead sea, Himalayan, sea salt) lots of oils/lotions, (coconut oil, tea tree oil, witch hazel, aloe vera plant, oil mixtures, and natural lotions) shower/water filter, (water head filter in shower to filter out hard metals and chemicals) probiotics,( i saw a couple replies about the gut biome and keeping good bacteria intact and i believe strongly in this and how its linked to inflammation so eat yogurt!) hit the gym/intense stretching( exercise and blood flow is EXTREMELY important for this situation for regulating homeostasis and hormones) post exercise, (eat the healthiest foods you can possibly eat after you have just used all your bodies nutrients in a tough workout and replace all your growing/repairing cells with pristine healthy ones, helping scarring) supplements,( these are a controversial subject but they work if your body is absorbing them right) and lastly get plenty of good deep sleep full of H20 and healthy nutrients this is when the body does hyperdrive like repairing that a lot of scientist still do not understand so make sure your body has the supplies needed to repair in hypderdrive. 

Just a reminder that i am also a very spiritual person that practices a good amount of meditation and can say that it has really helped to be mindful and be aware of your body. So get in tune with yourself because everyone is different.

Currently trying cbd oil for inflammation

Stay healthy!

Hey bro! I don’t know if you’ll read this, since your post is old but I want to tell you that you’re an inspiration. I know exactly what you’re going through! Hope you’re doing good now and your results after Humira were fantastic!

The gut is by far one of the most important things to consider during this process. It very hard to fully wrap someone's mind around the fact that your gut can determine the health of your skin and MANY others things. Thank you for taking the time to reply in here!

Doing a small follow up. From the first day i posted until right now, i can confidently say that STRESS is what caused a lot of my inflammatory problems. Learning how to stay calm is detrimental to health overall. Just a reminder that acne was not my only inflammatory issues. I had bad joint pain and also had inflamed iris(eyes) which caused me to lose some vision in my right eye permanently. Everything i have mentioned for the acne can help this problems also. 

Meditate, stay active, drink lots of water, eat foods that were alive or from the earth (not packaged or processed) and most importantly dont let your anxiety/stress get away from you. You are what you think, and my mindset was not great for a long time.
