  1. I have been there. flaxseeds broke me out really badly too.
  2. I feel like I wrote all of this. Just dont know how to deal with this crap anymore. You are not alone!
  3. Hey there. I am on my 6th months spiro treatment too. My skin has been so dry that it was giving me weird itchy bumps on neck and jaw line. To combat that, I started using cetaphil cream, and kept getting one or two irritated tiny red bumps, and 5 days later I had even more. So today I washed my face and I put on aveeno daily moisturizer. And I did not itch at all like I do with Cetaphil cream. I am hoping aveeno turns out to be good for me. is it still working for you?
  4. Not doing all that great myself. I have extremely dry itchy skin on 150 mg. I am dropping to 125. I have started getting weird itchy skin colored bumps on jawline and neck. For me, i'm feeling its my excess dryness that might be causing it. Lots of people use tazorac but I have never used it. Tazorac might help in shedding off the dead skin layer. that can help you. As for me, i dont even know if the weird small soft bumps are allergies or what! They started in march, after a month being on 150
  5. how is your skin doing espinilla? Yeah it sucks! if i am not getting bumbs I am giving myself one be picking. Things would have been soo much better otherwise. I am trying to work on this. Another problem for me is those tiny clogged pores on my upper jaw bone right under my right eye. My skin is so delicate there and quite dry on top of it all. Any tips for keeping that place clear. i. e which lotion to use. I just started my period today, and its high pollen season here. I am experienc
  6. Hey I am glad you're doing good. I am about to complete my 5 months. I am doing alright not perfect but alright. I am just very itchy around my jaw line and neck. And I have a few tiny very itchy bumps on my neck since end of march. I feel its related to pollen in the air and allergies. At the same time, I also have a small rash on the side of my eye and on my cheek below it. My skin is extremely dry..like extremelllyyy dry on my neck and aroung my eyes where I have the small itchy bumps. I hav

  8. I wasn't too sure about my acne either. I got it mostly on my chin, sometimes a little bit on forehead. I got some on cheeks too.

    spiro + yaz

    Hey there I am exactly one month behind you with spiro. I am glad its working out for you. Its going alright for me as well. I am specifically just taking it for my silly monthly acne due to periods. Like yourself, I consider myself an OCD and a hypochondriac. lol Also, I am a bad picker, if nothing else I would just pick off my dry skin. I am kind of going through the same with a bigggggg pink extremely flakey mark on my cheek but mine was after mindless picking. which left a huge nail mark c

    Spironolactone

    Hey there! I get looonng periods after almost every two weeks. lol. I think Spiro often causes irregularities if taken w/o BCP. Also, usually with time these irregularities get better. My physician told me not to worry about it much. Also, I've heard that once a person stops spiro, the periods goes back to normal. So its not like a BC that messes you up for months and months after I believe. Hope I helped.

  12. Sigh* My OCD and usless picking is costing me a lot. I gave myself a cut after mindless picking which kind of got infected. I wish I could stop myself from touching my face.
  13. Yup, I got couple of red bumps last month too but I think they were mainly caused by irritation from AHA. I do get whiteheads on my forehead now here and there. They're quite small though. I have OCD and bad skin picking habit. You wouldn't believe it, but I sometimes end up picking nothing or mostly I am picking at nothing. A lot of marks that I do get are not from pimple but from stupid picking. I just picked last night, I digged my nails in my skin.My poor sensitive skin can only take so much
  14. We are kind of similar, as I am on my fourth month too, end of fourth month. My skin has gotten better but I, too, get small clogged pores on my forehead, and yesterday I got a small pimple which is on its way out. But yeah I didn't get much in this month. Lets hope these silly clogged pores stop too. I mean its not that bad with clogged pores but still. Has the frequency of your white head lessened. For me it is decreasing. I hope it gets better and better for both of us.
  15. I have a similar story as you. I was perfectly clear on doxy from age 18 until about age 24. I began to break-out right around the time of my period. It took me MONTHS to realize the pattern. Once I did I was put on Spiro. I have been on it for almost 6 weeks now. (Only 50mgs/ 100mgs 2 weeks before my period. ) I am having it increased on Monday. I DID experience some break-outs during my period, but definitely have noticed it was not as severe as prior non-Spiro months. I think you need to give
