  1. the rash on my cheeks is now so bad that the only stuff that i can put on it is fresh aloe vera. It does help with the inflammation but i suspect it will take a long time for my skin to heal. In the meantime i cannot even cover it with foundation because the bumps and swelling cannot be concealed. I feel so stupid for trying a cleansing method that defies logic. In my haste i read only the positive reviews. I wish i had taken time to read more about it instead of steaming my face and massaging
  2. The OCM really messed up my skin, i wish i had never tried it. I had clear skin thanks to retin-a but when i developed a cyst on my chin due to a hormonal imbalance i came to this site and stumbled across the OCM. I thought i would give it a go to prevent more cysts. I used 50% castor oil and 50% grapeseed oil twice in three days. My skin started to get extremely dry, and now it's full of red bumps, almost like a rash, my pores look clogged and more cysts have appeared where i never had a spo
  3. cystic acne appeared when my periods stopped and my doctor prescribed some bio-identical, plant-based hormones to manage my hot flashes, insomnia, lack of energy and mood swings.

  4. thanks a lot, Melloman. I do believe that my cystic acne is hormonal, as it appeared when my periods stopped and when my doctor prescribed some bio-identical, plant-based hormones to manage my hot flashes, insomnia, lack of energy and mood swings. My symptoms didn't improve with this regime, so a couple of weeks ago i stopped taking them. Actually some of the symptoms got worse and on top of that i got acne! She had prescribed a testosterone cream and DHEA pills because a blood test had shown e
  5. Hi, i feel your pain and frustration. I too am battling with a stubborn cyst. I have tried the castor oil/grape seed oil treatment, noticed some improvement to my overall skin appearance, but the cyst on my chin didn't change much. It was still red and inflamed after 6 weeks and nothing seemed to make any difference. I tried Tea Tree oil, crushed aspirin, baking soda, apple cider vinegar to no avail. I was about to see a dermatologist and ask for a cortisone injection to get rid of it, when i
  6. hi there, i have just reached the menopause and my skin has become a mess. I did have some acne as a teenager, (never developed cysts) but in my adult life my skin was never an issue. I have always had a very healthy diet and have been a vegetarian for 20 years. Due to wheat and lactose intolerance i am quite careful about what i eat, i don't gain weight easily and exercise regularly. Since reaching the menopause i have had trouble sleeping, mainly due to very frequent hot flushes. I can put
