Just needing advice - where to go next?

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, 


I’m posting on here because I honestly don’t know what to do anymore. 


I have been dealing with bad acne since around 2017 now and I feel as though I’ve tried everything. 


I have tried countless different topical skin treatments, including prescription creams.


I have tried every skincare regime and all the other tips like changing my pillow case everyday.


I have been to many naturopaths who have told me I have hormonal imbalances and given me different supplements and herbs that I have taken to absolutely no effect. 


I have tried a skin therapist who did extractions, chemical peels and light therapy treatments on my skin that just made the acne spread further around my face.


I have been to a functional doctor who has told me I have gut issues and gave me metagenic drinks that made me feel bloated and sick and didn’t change my skin. 


I have recently just started on birth control which is slowly working but I know it’s just masking the issues on the inside and I would really love to tackle the root cause of my acne but every time I have tried to treat it naturally nothing happens. 


I’m just really asking for advice on what my next step is? I know I have gut problems and hormonal imbalances that are most likely causing my acne issues but I have no idea how to solve them. 


My friend wants to go camping for her birthday soon but I can’t with my skin in this state. Please help I just need some kind of advice :(


Sorry if this is all over the place.

You might have fungal acne, not ordinary acne, which is why the treatments are not working.

Do you have one or more of the following - a white tongue, dandruff, seborhheic dermatitis, toenial fungus, sinus or gut problems, unexplained tiredness or headaches, red rashes, itchy skin ?

Have you take antibiotics or other meds ? If so  which ones ?

If you get back to me, I can probably help you.

Fungal acne can be controlled with topical antifungal creams, which are totally safe.

I don’t know about fungal infections, but your best bet is probably to go see a dermatologist and ask about Accutane.

Dermatologists know NOTHING about fungal acne.

Do NOT go to a dermatologist, and certainly do NOT take accutane until you have tried the treatments to control fungal acne.

Accutane is VERY dangerous and it can make fungal acne WORSE.

But - Applying antifungal cream to control fungal acne is totally safe.

Get back to me Emday with answers to my questions above, and I can provide information that will very likely solve your problem, without any side effects and costing only a few dollars.
