  1. So I resorted to steaming my face tonight. I'm very impatient. I steamed to open my pores then squeezed as many of those white and black heads as possible. My skin is very red and mad now, obviously. From what I've read though, the only way to get rid of those is to get them extracted, so I just did it myself. I woke up with a new big red pimple today too again, and two little ones on my upper lip. I don't understand. My skin was doing so well just two months ago. I haven't changed anything
  2. Hello All! Like all of you I am on a quest to clear my skin and bring my body to some form of hormonal balance. A little about my acne i actually never had acne issue until I went on another bcp (for PCOS and irregular cycles) called Lutera. I was on that for 2 months or so and came off of it because I was getting really weird side effects like night sweats, nausea and mild acne of course. When I came off of it all hell broke loose and I started experiencing hot flashes, more acne, extremely
  3. So...this is Kristina. She is also a fully raw vegan. She was able to overcome her hyperglycemia, as well as migraines, fatigue, and constant nausea by switching to a fully raw diet. She has been vegan for 8 years. She started because a man stopped her in the store, who had been eating vegan for 18 years, and started telling her about the raw food diet. His initial advice after hours of discussing with her was to 'try eating raw for a few days, and see if it makes you feel better'. Quality
  4. I began to struggle with acne when I was about 15 years old. During my senior year of high school, I was started on my first dose of Accutane, which was successful in clearing my acne. However, I had to stop taking the medication after 5 months because I was experiencing severe irritability and depression. I experienced terrible panic attacks for the next four years, and my acne returned, full force. During my senior year of college, I reluctantly chose to go on Accutane once again.
  5. Hi there, The past month waiting has been hell for me, constantly worrying about starting Accutane. I'm in my mid 20's and have suffered from acne that won't go away since I was a teenager. I'm scared to death to start this drug tonight because I get chronic migraines and almost every single review I've read online, people reported really, really bad headaches. I weigh around 230 lbs and I was prescribed 40mg Claravis for the first month. I'm scared to death to start taking this. Liter
  6. I just started Spiro 50mg on Monday night. I have been getting horrible headaches. I dunno if it is related to the flu bug going around of the Spiro I have been drinking tons of water to make sure I'm hydrated and that doesnt seem to be helping. I already normally suffer from horrible migraines but it is very controlled I take Topamax every day so I almost never get them. Anyone else getting headaches like this on Spiro?? I feel like my head is gonna split in half the past few days..
  7. I started the regimen 2 days ago. I had mild acne as a teenager which almost resolved in my late teens. Now 23 I had to come off the combined contraceptive pill due to contraindications of having migraine with aura. I now use depo provera for contraception. I started getting some spots again over a year ago however this got worse when I finished a course of doxycycline I was taking for malaria prophylaxis over the summer. As my only contraception options due to migraine with aura are progester
  8. I'll try to keep this brief: I had acne as a teenager, was on Accutane at 12, and went on hormonal birth control when I was 15. About 2 years ago I went off birth control because I was sick of the mood swings and I got worse migraines when I was on it. A few months of being off the hormones and my skin basically erupted like nothing I've ever seen before. I've literally never seen worse acne on anyone, including most of the pictures here. It was incredibly painful and it was so horrible and de
  9. I'm 20 years old with hormonal acne and I've been taking 25mg Spironolactone for just over a month now and in the past week I've had 2 migraines with auras. I only ever used to get these migraines when I was on birth control for over year, which I am now banned from taking as a result of the health risk. I can understand that the excess estrogen from BC would cause my migraines but as an anti androgen, I don't understand why Spiro is doing the same, especially in such a short amount of time. I k
  10. Hi everyone! I’m a 26 year old female who is about to start the Accutane treatment for 6 months. I’ve struggled with acne my entire life and thought it would clear up by the time I graduated college. No such luck for me. I finally went to a dermatologist and I’m going to be starting Accutane next month. I’m excited to finally take care of this acne (hopefully once and for all) but after doing some research, I have a few concerns and questions. Some background you should know: -I suffer fr
