      ACNE JOURNEY- PCOS (BIRTH CONTROL PILL- YASMIN)

      You are a brave and beautiful girl... Always remember that!!! I too have PCOS. I was diagnosed 2014 but i think I already had it even before. I started getting severe comedonal and cystic acne in 2010. Went on several rounds of accutane in 2011 and 2012. Kept acne at bay until 2014 - all hell broke loose. I have always had irregular periods but in 2014 the longest that I didn’t have my period was 3 months. Went to the OB GYN and confirmed i have PCOS. I started Dianne35 immediately. And yes it

      PCOS Acne

      Having been diagnosed with PCOS really made me aware of the root causes of my acne. Unfortunately my hormones right now are still F’ed up and my face/skin is freaking out! LIKE FREAAAAKING OUT!!! I was diagnosed with PCOS in 2014, and began birth control. It really did help with keeping acne at bay I tell you that, however several months ago, I decided to let my body rest for a while - and now Acne is wreaking havoc again... i can even feel that my back is also acting up now! (Guess have bee
    5. Is there any other way but just to say “ I FEEL AND LOOK LIKE S#%T!!! I look like a pepperoni pizza. And these dang zits hurt like heck... Ugh... been struggling for 8 years now of on and off acne breakouts. All thanks to my messed up hormones. PCOS Acne is soo hard to treat. And I can start to feel my back is starting to act up as well.... gggrrrr Well, trying a modified Acne.org regimen for now and see if it works. I will be using the Johnsons top to toe baby wash for a cleanser, then I h
    6. New in this post.... thanks for listing alternatives for the Dan’s regimen. I just got rhe Benzac 5% - the mercury drugstore I went to only has this and no panoxyl which usually has the 2.5% as i recall correctly. I’m just going to introduce Benzac for now in my regimen, but if I don’t see any difference I am planning to get Dan’s regimen either in Lazada or FB - found a reseller and their prices are much lower than lazada. i just couldn’t bear how this acne is hurting me phyaically

        Accutane and PCOS acne

        Just saw your post today. I too have PCOS. The first ever symptom that I have is acne so i went to a derm first and was put on 4 rounds of accutane. Just for my acne to come back with a vengeance. I was diagnosed with POCS in 2014 and been on birth control. It really does help with pcos acne but last december 2017 i took months off of birth control, so fast forward to February until now, still struggling with acne breakouts. I am back on the pill and i hope this helps. With birth control you rea
      2. After a visit to the derm..... I look like a monster basically... He murdered my zits coz a lot of them are really big and infected... Like i i know those have pus inside but somehow they are not coming out... Cystic in nature..... Acne creams and lotions however in the long run i would like to wean off of them..... He did not do anything about my chest and back acne but told me i can use a soap containing benzoyl peroxide... Good thing i am on leave for 2 weeks so my face can calm down...
