  1. We just had a water testing company come and test it. Did you ever try taking probiotics, it cleans out your gut. I read alot that if your gut is messed up that it cam come out in your skin. I take it everyday. Did you get blood work done? Vitamin d, thyroid imbalances can cause acne (many other imbalances can cause acne). Did you try going to a nutritionist or holistic doctor they can request blood work for you. Is it hereditary? Some posts on this site say to much sex/masturbating caus
  2. Have you tried changing your diet? Have you gone to a derm? Did you happen to move when you started breaking out. Sometimes the environment or even the water can cause acne. I went on the candida diet and had our water tested (loaded with bacteria and ph was through the roof. we couldnt even cook with it). Since the candida diet and only washing my face with poland spring water i have not had ONE CYST. So many options out there you just have to find yours. I know how you feel cause i felt
  3. I have read many posts on this site that spironolactone has really helped with cystic acne. Go to your ob/gyn to see if they will prescribe it for you.
  4. All the antibiotics and bp could have given you candida. thats what i had and i went on the candida diet and have not had one cyst. I am back to eating normal and my skin is fine. I also only wash my face with poland spring water, even in the shower i take an over sized plastic mug with poland spring water in it. We had our water tested and the ph and bacteria levels were through the roof that we couldnt even use it for cooking.
  5. hyperpigmentation is discoloration of the skin after the acne is gone. red marks purple marks etc...
  6. Try taking a really hot shower so the steam loosens and opens them up and maybe they will drain on their own or atleast come to the surface.
  7. Just a thought but have you had your water tested. We had our water tested and the bacteria and ph was through the roof. We couldnt even boil the water and use it because they said it wasnt safe. I only wash my face with poland spring water. Hey ya never know.
  8. If diet and all natural whole foods was the answer for clearing acne we wouldn't be posting on this site. Although the candida diet cleared my skin it was because i had candida and not everyones acne is due to candida so dieting isnt always the answer. i also believe a huge contributing factor to my acne was our well water. We had it tested and the bacteria and PH levels were through the roof, they said its not safe to even boil the water and cook with it. So between the water and the over l
  9. Try going on birth control if it only happens around your period
  10. http://www.acne.org/messageboard/index.php/topic/313938-sharing-my-success-clearing-persistent-mouthjawline-cysts/ here is a good read about water and fluoride and acne
  11. Try reading up on something before you discard it as a possible cure.
  12. Also some people are allergic to fluoride so they use toothpaste w/out flouride and they cleared up. some people are allergic to anti perspirant because of the aluminum in it so they buy deodorant. There are so many different things it could be. i will keep posting if i think of anything else.
  13. Try putting a band aid on it with neosporin.
  14. Try taking one vitamin at a time that is the only way you will know if it is helping or not. cut out acne related foods soy, dairy, eggs, sugar, gluten, CAFFEINE etc... there are so many but it is worth a shot. Its hard to cut them out but worth it if it works. I found im allergic to caffeine and eggs, makes me break out. It's all trial and error.
  15. i take an over sized plastic mug with the poland spring water in the shower and use that to wash my face. i tried taking zinc and it broke me out. the best vitamin d to take for acne is liquid vitamin d3 from what i have read. Instead of beta carotene try taking vitamin A. You really should see another derm or even a nutritionist. have blood work done get checked for food allergies. I understand what you are going through my face was covered in cysts last year but i am clear now. I always
  16. have you been to a derm and considered antibiotics or accutane. try washing your face with only bottled water, i use poland spring. sometimes tap water has very high ph and can cause havoc on the skin. personally i tried the candida diet and took pro biotics and it cleared all of my cystic acne but it doesnt work for everyone.
  17. have you tried going on birth control may be it is hormonal. just a suggestion but we had our water tested and our ph and bacteria was so bad in our water that we couldnt even use it for cooking. i only wash my face with poland spring water. My cystic acne cleared when i went on the candida diet and i think that by ingesting/washing my face with our tap water and taking antibiotics it gave me candida. i looked up high ph water and it can cause havic on the skin. Just a thought but ya never
  18. Not everybody can digest grains especially if you have eczema acne and celiac disease. Grains are among the worst foods to eat if you suffer from acne. For many people grains and acne go almost hand in hand. acne is a result of blood sugar problems and chronic inflammation.The main problem with grains is gluten. Gluten is a special type of protein that is commonly found in rye, wheat, and barley. Oats as they exist in nature don’t have gluten, but it often gets added during processing. That’s
  19. Since when do eggs have lactose? The diet you reccomend is gonna create such hard stools that might rip your colon appart since vegetables hardly have any fiber. who said eggs have lactose??? Maybe you havent heard of them yet but they come in pill and powder form and they are called fiber pills and fiber powder. You only need 20-35 grams of fiber a day, RDA, whish is not a lot of vegetables. Carrots are good for the eyes also try eating some. Well you typed "eggs (dairy)", I guess that was a

  21. Your sarcasm will get you know where in life which yes shows some form of low self esteem. If you had read my posts i said HOPEFULLY YOUR SKIN WILL STAY CLEAR AND NEVER SAID IT WAS A PROBLEM FOR EVERYONE. Not once did i bash anyone and your the one replying with nonsense. If you knew anything about the candida diet you would feel foolish with your responses. You really havent stated anything in your posts but sarcasm. On a lighter note try to have a restful evening stress can also cause acne
