    To start Spironolactone or not...

    Thank you for your suggestion! For a year I was on a strict paleo diet in attempts to fix my skin. No alcohol or caffeine either, obviously. I ate lots of veggies and salmon and drank tons of water. Really, a great diet! I took probiotics every day and drank kombucha regularly as well. These things did help slightly. I saw an allergist and also a Chinese medicine doctor. However, I just say that nothing has helped me like Spironolactone 100 mg a day. I no longer get painful cystic acne on my jaw

    Prescription Medication

    Hi, how is your regime been working for you? I am about to start Spiro. We’re you prescribed Finacea for rosacea? I have rosacea as well. I also have hormonal acne. I’m aware that there is a hormonal aspect to both rosacea and the kind of acne you are describing. Hope you are feeling better! I definitely relate to wanting to hide in your room. You are not in this alone!!! Sending lots of love and healing energy your way

This calms flare ups fast but again, a couple weeks (after 3) of Violet Extract use has really done the trick for me
