for cysts use DEXAMETHASONE

Recommended Posts

Please trust me on this one. I used to have a lot of cysts but found DEXAMETHASONE. Its a steroid that regulates your adrenal hormnal level(linked to acne) and also reduces inflammation( what cysts are) and wala ....!!!! I dont have cysts at all now and when ever i feel like i have them... i take a little more than the regular 1mg and it just becomes a regular zit.

I'm on this for my cysts right now. However, I'm only on .25 mg/day. I haven't noticed a difference, but it's only been a couple of days! My doc put me on it to prep me for Accutane so that hopefully I won't have an initial breakout. But we'll see.

ye its a steroid and u can purchase it online without a prescription. Im on it with 1mg no more. Its weird because its main purpose is to fight inflammation, and yet one of the side effects list acne. So Im not taking more tha 1mg. Theyll work, for sure! The good thing about steroids is unlike antibiotics, they wont form resistance.

peace
