    Post-Prednisone Hormonal Shift?

    I'm currently on Yaz and was also on Spironolactone for ~5 months and my acne was completely clear. I was then diagnosed with vasculitis and had to get off spironolactone to take prednisone to manage flare-ups. I was on and off Prednisone for about a month and a half. Once I started tapering the second time I was on it (which was for a period of about a month), I began breaking out in mostly small, flesh-colored pimples on my forehead, some on chest, and some on the center of my back. My dermato
  2. I have currently been on accutane and this is my 3rd month running 20mg daily, next month I'll be taking 40mg daily. I have seen lots of people run cycles and Accutane and get amazing results. But I'm starting an anadrol50mg oral cycle and my main concern is that this may affect my kidney or liver but the cycle only goes for 4 weeks... My main question is WILL THIS get in the way of the accutane eliminating my acne and WILL this damage my liver? What if i take anadrol50mg in the morning and accu
  3. Hi everyone last Friday, February 16th, I started 30mg of accutane after fighting with my acne for 5 years. Let me just give a little background here. So I played hockey through high school and never had an issue with my skin, like not a zit anywhere. Fast forward to my senior year and I started to get cystic acne on the back of my neck out of the blue, it was pretty painful but wasn't awful and didn't really look too bad. By the end of my hockey season my skin got pretty bad with some gross
  4. Or, more accurately, from STOPPING prednisone while on accutane. It helped a lot in the beginning, but now I feel screwed. Has this happened to anyone else and what did you do to make it a bit better? I began getting more breakouts when I went down from 20 to 10mg...I stopped my pills yesterday and today I woke up with two small red zits forming and even worse, a huge cyst in the pores beside my nose [where I used to get very oily]. I've heard of this happening since pred is a strong anti-inflam
  5. Hi everyone. I'm getting a little desperate with all this shit, and I am wondering if someone really good with the body endocrine system functions could help me identify the problems since all doctors(Dermatologist, Endocrinologist, Family Doctor, Emergency Physician) I had seen could not help me that much with this issue. Here is my story : A year ago, I did a course of anabolic steroids and prohormones to help me getting some gains and do better in sports. Well that worked really r
  6. I used to have a lot of cystic acne. I managed to clear it with some glycolic acid peels, Milk Thistle(don't take this seriously as I had a very nasty liver problem, which caused my whole body to work incorrectly) and tretinoin(used 3 times a week). For reasons that go far beyond muscle growth, I'm on 500MG of testosterone a week. In the beginning, everything was fine. About 5 months later, acne came back like it used to be. The problem is that I was working 12 hours a day and I didn't pay a
  7. Page reloaded and what I just typed was lost, so I now will have a less detailed version. I was given Accutane about 2 weeks ago, I tried Duac and Topac, neither did anything, Proactive made me swell and make the acne come faster and more coming. I didn't want to take Accutane but my parents made me, and I now take 2 20mg pills a day, morning and night. I still don't want to take it, 2 weeks in. Everything was fine until about Thursday, I started to get these mosquito bite like bumps, mine

    Pesky acne on shoulders hALP

    Hello all! I made an account so I could post a question and get advice from the most reputable source I know. So here's my issue- I've always had acne on my face and my body but my shoulders would have maybe 2-3 tiny bumps at any given time. Now, after being on steroids for a week after being hospitalized, I've gotten a bunch more tiny red bumps all over my shoulder and a little bit down my arm. Is this definitely caused by the steroids since that's the only thing that's changed? How can I get r
  9. ●●●●●Sex Stimulants Cause Pimples & Ugly Scars●●●●● There are millions of people in the world who are chronic sufferers of pimples, which disfigure their faces and make them look ugly. Thousands of young people become so desperate and depressed due to the ugliness caused by acne that they even think of committing suicide. Abstinence from sex and the retention of semen for long periods in their bodies by young men can cause or increase the pimples and boils in
