  1. I've had demodex. I'm actually just now recovering from the damage it did. This is my experience. I'm 41, and a little over a year ago I started breaking out. I was using Retin-A. I'm 41, and keeping the crypt keeper away is a priority. I've been using Retin-A since the 1982. Almost 30 years. I had teen acne, and Retin-A worked. I never stopped using it, and I've always been fortunate enough to have good health insurance, so obtaining it wasn't difficult or expensive. I was concerned w
  2. I just recently found this website a couple of days ago and started reading other people's experiences with Accutane. I thought I would just bookmark and read when I needed the support, but I too want to join and blog! hahaha A little bit about myself, I'm 22, female and I just started Accutance June 29th. I started because I was left with no other options seeing as how I just grew into cystic acne at the end of December 2010. I thought it was just regular acne and would go away on it's own (
  3. Hello, I've just joined but I started reading these boards a few months ago, and I just wanted to come in and give my own story, see if I can get some advice, etc. Let me start by saying I have heart, blood, bone and neurological conditions and other disorders (I'm a mixed bag of fun!) that prevent me from taking medication for acne, so I'm pretty much stuck with what I can get over the counter and apply to my skin. My acne started in full force in my late teens and never went away. I get eve
  4. I believe carbohydrates were not intended for man to consume and all these food pyramids are flawed just so we buy more of farmers products. After all the food pyramids were created by agriculture community. Anyway as i was searching around i came across this and i believe it can help many acne sufferers. Introduction There are many conditions in Western industrialised societies today that were unheard of, or at least very rare, just a century ago. The same conditions are still unheard of in
  5. History: 28 y/o female, total hysterectomy at age 23. Started hormone replacement therapy directly after surgery. Most "successful" HRT was estratest which contains some small amount of testosterone. Very healthy, clean diet. Exercise 6 days a week. Military career requiring long work hours, high stress load (12 hr shifts, minimum 60 hr weeks, day and night shifts). Had some acne ever since puberty, but comes and goes unpredictably and has never been that bad. Some cystic acne also. Approximatel
  6. UPDATED POST I am getting close to being what I would call an Accutane survivor. Through trial & error and a ton of research I have remedied almost all of my Accutane related health issues. For the low libido, I still struggle with it a little but I am 90% better than I was a year ago. I have been working with a BodyLogicMD doctor to balance my hormones with bio-identical hormone replacement. I now have lubrication, desire and strong orgasms. Intercourse is about 90% less painful. Aft
  7. To prevent my spiro thread from turning into a progesterone discussion, I have continued the discussion here.
  8. Spearmint is now labled as an "Anti-Androgen" in the medical world, according to CNN. I saw this news on CNN last month, and noticed it again on a health site. Researchers have found that drinking 2-5 cups of Spearmint tea each day greatly reduces androgens. Drinking this amount of Spearmint Tea stops Hirutism (women growing whiskers) and many other symptoms of androgen-overproduction.. Androgens also cause a slew of other symptoms, one which is acne. ======================================
  9. Hello. My mom recommended me to read a bit of info related to acne in a book she's had. I think it's informative and am willing to share it with those who may be interested. Extracted from pages 14-15: ------------------------------------------------------ Super Prescription 1- Vitex( chasteberry) Take 160 Mg of a standardized Vitex extract 0.6 aucubin or 0.5 percent agnuside) or 40 drops of the tincture form daily. Vitex(chasteberry) is an excellent hormone balancer to reduce acne form
  10. SO! Good news!! I've tried the "Avalon" Organics Lavender Sensitive Skin regimen, and WOW. 100% organic, no extra bullshit.. I'm also taking this organic pill for "Menopause" called "Transitions", technically it's for the symptoms, hormonal imbalance and mood.. etc. I think it's helping as well. My skin looks luminous and in just a few days, it's clearing up. All bought at Vitamin Cottage in Glenwood Springs, CO
  11. Hi all, I wanted to post an update since it's been a while. Six months ago I was diagnosed with a severe hormonal imbalance. I was deficient in estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, and pregnenolone, though my SHBG levels were DOUBLE what they should be. My symptoms included acne, anxiety, depression, panic attacks, low weight, fatigue, migraines, nausea, dizziness, night sweats, severe PMS, brain fog, and more. I used to be unable to make it through the workday without a panic attack. Sometim
  12. Acne Treatment: 7 Things You Must Know! by: Robin Araoz Let me ask you this... Are you suffering from acne? Do you know what is causing it and is there any effective acne treatment? Studies show that an estimated 80 % percent of people experience acne at some point. No one knows exactly what the cause of acne is, but there are a few theories. Let´s take a look at 7 of them: 1.

  14. Ok, so some back ground info is in order I suppose...I had mild acne as a teen...Nothing bad at all (although I thought it was terrible at the time). Then I started a terrible BC (depo provera) the BC shot...And little did i know that one of its side effects is acne...So, i finally got off the stuff and my skin goes absolutley crazy!!! I actually started getting cysts..So, I did the CSR and I still kept getting cysts. So, I finally broke down and saw a derm close to my school. They put me on Spi
  15. As many of you have read previously, I am the accutane champion Here's a recap of my history: My mom has had severe cystic acne and oily skin, even post-menopause. I obviously inherited her (short end) of the gene pool My first experience with accutane was my senior year of high school; had to beg my derm at the time to put me on it (he was super super paranoid) even with quarter-sized cysts on my face. I made it two months before he decided my liver tests increased too much (I think he was

  17. The hair, skin and nails refllect many biochemical imbalances in the body. It is therefore very important to maintain a healthy balance of nutrients to ensure well-nourished, beautiful hair, skin and nails. Hair and nails reflect the health of the body two to six months previously. Skin reflects any imbalances much more immediately. The skin is the largest organ of the body and is responsible for the elimination of a variety of toxins. This of course means that much of what is going on inside w
  19. Hello everyone I was wondering if any of you nice people can help me out. If your acne is hormone related, like, for instance, in my case I'll always break out a week before I'm due. Does that mean, I'll have acne... up until I reach my menopause then?!
  20. Ooh I often get a dream similar to this, do you ever? teeth dreams -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- "My Teeth Are Falling" Dreams that your teeth are falling out are the most common dreams we here at Dream Moods receive. Common dream scenarios include having your teeth crumbling in your hands or your teeth falling out one by one with just a light tap.uch dreams are not only horrifying and shocking, but often leaves the dreamer with a

  22. Female Acne

    5 Facts about Female Acne: Premenstrual Menopause Pregnancy Treatment Options Hormonal Treatment: Birth Control (Oral Contraceptives) Spironolactone Cyproterone Acetate (Diane-35) 5 Facts about Female Acne: As a general rule, women's hormones tend to fluctuate more than men's, which helps explain why acne in women tends to be less constant and more erratic than acne in men. More than half of all adult women experience at least occasional breakouts. 60-70% of women who battle acne experience premenstrual flare-ups. Acne can occur throughout a woman's adult life: in...
  23. By Ayren-Jackson Kennedy in The NY Times GROWING up, Eileen Wolter, now 40 and a blogger about stay-at-home motherhood in Summit, N.J., was one of those rare teenagers without complexion concerns. “I had really good skin,” she said. “And I just used Ivory bar soap.” But in recent years, that skin has gone from picture-perfect to problematic. “I’ve got uneven skin that’s also oily with constant blackheads and cystic acne bumps on my chin,” Ms. Wolter said. And her once-simple regimen now in
  24. Im 43 and in the throws of menopause according to my OB and my test results. He has give a script for a low dose of estrogen/progesterone called Prempro. Im so weary to try for fear it will make my already hormonal skin worse. Im dry and my pores are clogged probably from the dry skin. His feeling is the boost to my already low estrogen should help my skin not hurt it..I was hoping to discuss bioidentical hormones but he wouldnt even entertain the thought..He thought it was all nonsense and
  25. How depressing is it to be 48 and still have acne??? VERY depressing.... I have had acne since I was 13 years old....it's waxed and waned over the years, but has come back with a vengeance since I entered into perimenopause about a year ago...the skin got oilier again, and the cysts returned...and, lucky me, I also got some rosacea on my cheeks.... This holiday was particularly bad...I currently have two truly HUGE cysts on my face- both on the right side, one next to my nose, the other on
