    Week 12 Of Spiro

    Hello! So sorry I have been MIA for the past month and a bit! My skin is doing really good though! So Right now I have maybe two small pimples happening. But quite a few little bumps that I think are blackheads. I had two really big ones for the past week and half and they are finally settling down but they stuck out really badly because the rest of my skin looks really clear. My forehead is clear of the little bumps. I use MURAD's spot treatment on my forehead and cheeks despite th

    Week 5 Of Spiro

    Hey guys so this hasn't been a good week for me! I've been under a lot of stress, have a major exam coming up in a few days and a whole lot else going on. And I feel like it is taking a toll on my skin. I've broken out quite a bit in the last week and a half. My skin has really dried out, but I feel like its dried out too much and my body is reacting by producing oil. So it looks slightly flaky but shiny. I'm still trying to figure out how to work around this. My forehead was clearing u

    Week 2 Of Spironolactone

    Oh really, ya I noticed most people were mentioning it I'm not sure why my gynae brushed it off but its coming to the end of a month of being on it now so I'm going to make an appt with my GP. Thanks for the help!
  4. Its hard for guys! I would recommend trying a salicylic acid based treatment or wash. Ive been using the neutrogena salicylic acid mask and it works wonders for my skin! But I am also currently on Spironolactone which helps. Unfortunately its not for guys! Good luck!
  5. So I am coming to the end of my second week of Spironolactone. I was on 25mg for the first week, and 50mg for this week. I start 75mg tomorrow for the third week. So far I have noticed a decrease in the oil! Instead of my whole face becoming an oil slick throughout the day and needing to blot several times, I notice my nose the oiliest and I barely use up one blotting paper in the evenings. Its amazing! I was using 4 to blot my face before (one for each section of my face). In terms of

    Starting Spironolactone

    Ya Im starting week 3 of bumping up to 75 mg tomorrow and I've noticed a change in the oil! I only need to blot (barely) once in the evenings! I haven't noticed an initial breakout yet thank god! Did you notice one?
  7. Hey how long after starting Spiro did you have to do a blood test? I asked my gynae about checking my bloods for hyperkalemia after starting it two weeks ago and she said its not a problem to worry about! But I am worried!
  8. Wow thats amazing! after just 6w as well, I've read on a lot of forums that it takes a few months and you can get an initial breakout. Did you get one? I just started Spiro 25mg for a week and am bumping up to 50 for the next week. i hope I have as much success as you!
  9. So I'm a 26 year old dealing with a 15 year old's skin problems. I have had bad skin for over 10 years and have always hated my skin. I have been on accutane twice in the last 4 years with excellent results. But short lived results. I also have PCOS. Because of this I take the BCP Lo Estrin to control my hormones. I have been off Accutane for the last year and a half and my skin was clear for about 6m and then started becoming really greasy and breaking out again. Over the last 7 months
