  1. I decided to wean and after taking it very slowly..... I am down to 1/2 pill 2 times a week. Now out of nowhere 3 small cyst on cheek. Wtf????? Do I go back to taking spirolactine 25mg a day indefinitely??? Do I take Bactrim for a few weeks while my body adjusts to not having the spiro???? Do I tough it out and see if my body adjusts on its own? Will I purge if I go back on it?
  2. I weaned off the Spironolactone it's been about a week since my last dose and now I'm breaking out in little pimples all over my chin. What the hell????
  3. I have been on spironolactone for almost a year. I was prescribed it for hormonal acne caused by having testosterone pellets inserted. They have worn off, usually lasts about 6-8 months, and my skin seems back to normal. No breakouts for almost 4-5 months now. My question is...... Can I just quit taking the spiro or do I have to taper off and will quiting cause a breakout?
  4. Do you think I should switch to keflex and then up the spiro? I was also getting injections everytime but in January we switched insurance due to my husband staring a new job. Now my copay is 150 each visit, before it was 20. I was going at least 1-2 times a week. Now I'm screwed. Even more reason to be terrified of the purging!!!
  5. So you've been clear for a year? Sounds to good to be true. So happy for you! Are you still on keflex or how long did you take it. I'm terrified to up my spiro!!!! I'm in bactrim, again, but that didn't seam to help with the first purge. My face is so scarred!!!! Im sue it's hormonal because I got my period yesterday and breakout started 3 days ago. Do mind if I ask how old you are? I also use dermablend, covers scars great but nothing covers big ugly bumps.
  6. Are you clear now and what did you do to get there and maintain? What kind of aha? I was on retin and I hated it. Broke out the whole time.Oh and I agree, everyday anxiety!!!! Never had acne, aside from occassional pimple until 5 months ago when I had testosterone pellets implanted in my hip. Was hoping when that wore off I'd be ok but here I am at almost 6 months and still breaking out and have cheeks covered in scars. I am embarrassed to go without makeup, when before I rarely wore much as
  7. I have been on 50 mg a day for 3 1/2 months and was on bactrim for 2 months...... Things seemed to be clearing up but not totally. I stopped bactrim 2 weeks ago. Today I woke up with 5 huge pimples. Went to deem who gave me 5 huge injections and put me back on bactrim. She also wants to up my spiro to 100 mg. help!!!!!!!!!!!! Should I do it and will I purge again????? What if I increase it gradually? Like reverse weaning. Advise please!!!!!! I'm 43 this week this is the last thing I want

    Thank you. I just ordered the dml,
  13. All the moisturizers I try irritate my skin so I am trying a diy recipe I read in here. It's aloe vera juice Jojoba oil Glycerin I think aloe is irritating my cheeks so my question is: can I just use Distilled water instead of aloe?

    Moisturizer

    As of 3 days ago I'm now cleansing and then using alcohol free witch hazel.... So far so good but still dry in areas. Bought all the ingredients- glycerin, aloe, jojoba and I'm going to try a DIY recipes someone posted on here. I'd like to try it on one area of my face before putting it all over. Has anyone else tried this?

Do you use 100% aloe and is it juice or gel and where so you get thayers? One more question. Just went on Amazon to order thayers witch hazel and there are a ton without alcohol aloe and lemon, aloe etc etc!,,,
