    Intro

    Background: I am 33 years old and have been struggling with some form of acne for as long as I can remember. I have a family history of acne on both sides. My Mother's acne was a mild form and was cystic in nature, but well managed with birth control and antibiotics. She was/is beautiful and I really never noticed she had a problem. She said it finally subsided when she went through menopause. My Father is in his 60's and still has blackheads and enlarged pores on his nose and consistently
  2. Hi guys. I went to see my endocrinologist today to check up on my blood pressure/electrolytes with Spiro. I have basically been obsessed with hormones and how they effect the skin lately, so I thought I would ask him all my questions. He has been a very good doctor and he went to Harvard med school so I trust in what he has to say. So here are some Q and A's for anyone who is interested.

I left practically stomping out of the office because she wouldn't let me get two words in, especially because I had a whole list of notes on my phone of I wanted to discuss with her. She basically told me my only options where
  5. Okay so, following my blood tests and ultrasound, I don't have PCOS but, i do have more testosterone than I should in my body. So my GP has referred me to an endocrinologist, who I am going to see on tuesday morning. I'm really excited as I hope there is something I can do about this.
  6. Please excuse me for this post, but I am so frustrated with my body acne. I am such a freak that I get acne even in weird places like my forearms, hands, and stomach. And yes, I do think that it's actual acne for reasons that I will explain later in this post. MY RANT Having weird body acne is so frustrating because I'm such a freak. Virtually nobody else gets acne in such weird places. It's at least somewhat socially acceptable to have acne on the face, back, or chest. It's frustrating
