acne

I mainly get the acne on my jaw line and neck when it's that special time of the month. But my back and chest gets acne too. If your reg dr could do injections they are a god send painful but in a couple of days there gone.
then in the last few weeks also bad on my neck and chest. My chest is the worst, on the area above/between the breasts it looks like I have a skin disease. A friend says, "it doesn't even look like acne, it looks like a rash" and it itches sometimes. Now a few bumps are appearing spreading down to my belly. Salicylic Acid cleansers made it MUCH worse. Benzoyl Peroxide isn't helping.
Could all of this inflammation + weight gain + inability to lose weight+ insomnia + acne indicate an increase in cortisol and or a hormonal imbalance? I saw my doctor who is an internist and pediatrician and he ACTUALLY laughed in my face. I am seeing on the internet that seems to be the norm.
Remember you are not getting any estrogen so it will mess with everything. When I was on it I started to get acne on my chest, face, back and neck. The depression hit its peak for me after 3 months and I became suicidal. I just can't be on progesterone only my body does not like it at all. However everyone is different. I know a girl on it that is doing great.
I went to a psychologist, tried herbs, everything... My regular doctor and gyno wanted me to either get on a drug for anxiety/depression, or get back on birth control. But my mom reasoned that I was fine before birth control and learned from researching online that birth control was probably the cause of these problems in the first place. We decided to stay away from more drugs and wait it out. My episode of terror lasted a week the first time and I lost 13 pounds.
i also have a question. i have moderate acne on my face, neck, back, and chest. i keep the body acne down by using witch hazel. but i was wondering if anyone has any tips. i ordered proactiv but havent gottn it yet - it is my last resort. i did take birth control and it worked wonderfully but i havent taken that sice january becasue we are trying to conceive. its embarrasing!
Acne occurs when androgens (hormones) stimulate the sebaceous glands to produce oil. Oil mixes with bacteria on the skin and inflammed acne spots occur. An effective treatment will therefore target the hormonal imbalance, excess oil or bacteria. Talk to your doctor about the various treatments available. An oral antibotic such as Oxytetracycline will kill the acne bacteria. An acne gel such as Duac (clindamycin and benzoyl peroxide) will dry up the oil.
Acne occurs due to a blockage of oil underneath the skin and builds up with bacteria causing inflammation and develops into a pimple. The common causes of acne are poor diet, stress, genetic, dirt, hormonal imbalances, cosmetics, work-related and drugs. Wash your face with mild soap many times a day.I understand your concern regarding this uncontrollable acne. Indeed it may be associated with hormone changes linked to birth control . Avoid popping or scratching them. Drink plenty of water.

Ive tried everything possible out there to the point that i gave up. Nothing works at all and i keep on getting this medium size to large boils on face, neck, back even in between legs and pubic hair area. It seems like when i shave my face clears up a little, but few days go by and my face, neck and back start getting this red painful bumps, ive also tried changing my diet eating less greasy foods and nothing either.
So I have never really had acne before (just a couple pimples here and there) but as soon as I got pregnant, it's as if my body decided to become a teenage boy! I'm full of acne on my face, down my neck and even on my back! I feel horrible and disgusting! It's like my face chemistry has changed it feels tougher, oily and out of no where my pores are huge!!! Help! I'm 8 weeks pregnant, does this ever go away and when?!?
They itch and burn severely, and they also cause me to feel like my skin all over is on fire when I only get the actual bumps on my chest, breasts, neck, lower face, back of neck, upper back and upper arms. So basically I get the bumps from my breasts up. I can not live on anti-biotics my entire life.
I am age of 26, facing Acne & Vulgaries grade 2 in Chest and neck. Tried Azithomicine and Flucloxacin with Erithromicine Lotion for 3 weeks as per Rx of doctor, but it recurrs just one week after stopping antibiotic. What could be the best treatment for this problem?
I also have acne on my back chest and my neck. I think mine is hormonal. I am considering accutane I here it works ( I hope ) But I also need to check on the hormonal part as well or it is for nothing.
I started getting acne very suddenly when I was 17. I have moderate acne on face, neck, shoulders/upperback. It flares up at various times (hormonal no doubt) esp in humidity. I am now 22 and have yet to find anything that works. Unfortunately The Pill is not an option, d/t presence of migraines. Any suggestions? PS:I'm thinking about going to a dermatologist and requesting Accutane in the hope that it will rid me of acne for good...
My dermatologists have tried quite the variety of treatments for the acne with no success. The acne isn't cystic, but a bit more problematic than mild acne. Also, a sulfa allergy limits that option for treatment. Current regimen includes Azelex (for redness and inflammation) and Tretinoin. I'm curious if there is an effective treatment that takes the fibromyalgia into consideration.
I am now 45. The GP told me that acne on the neck is usualy hormonal and could be due to changes in metaboloism and the ammount of sweat produced by the glands here. He has prescribed me a topical solution which I am dapping on daily and it is clearing it up slowly. He seems to think it will settle down by itself . Watch this space!
as a previous acne sufferer in my teens i went to my doctor and the they perscribed me with anti-biotics and eventually isotretanoin the harshest acne treant available, i have been on the iso for about 3 months and there is no improvement at all, all that has happened is the acne has spread form my back to my chest and neck, they are big, red and extermely sore.
About 5 years ago, I developed mild acne on my shoulders. I saw a dermatologist and he prescribed minocyclene to clear it up. This worked wonderfully. That particular dermatologist retired, and my new dr. suggested I try topical creams instead. When I was 28, I got pregnant and saw a wonderful improvement in my skin. After my baby was born, and I finished nursing, my skin became horrible! My daughter is almost 2 years old, and my skin has shown no improvement.
I'm about 7 weeks as well and I too have acne...on my back, neck and along my chin. One of the flattering facts of pregnancy I've learned. I just keep in mind that it's the hormones and it won't have it forever. If I stress over it it'll probably get worse.
Avoid the depot shot, mini-pill and hormonal IUD, all of which can make acne worse. Cow's milk may contain hormones so eating soya or non-dairy desserts may be better for you. Eloise.
I went from having perfectly clear skin to almost rash like bumps on my forehead, and painful cyst like zits on my chin line... even my neck has started to break out.... I have topical solution from the dermatologist but it doesn't seem to be helping. Does anyone know of a way to treat acne that is brought on my medication?
I'm a female, 31y/o (will be 32 in June) & I've had it!! I've had it constantly since 14y/o, til I went on a regiment of accutane & within a week it was clearing up & within a month it was gone. However, because it basically shutsdown your sebaceous glands (oil glands), it dries you out severely!! Everything was peeling! My lips were peeling off, things were cracking & bleeding including my hands & feet. But it was a small price to pay for beautiful porcelain skin.
I had two sets of Methotrexate shots to thin the lining in my uterus. I have had acne so bad since then. Especially on my neck and face! I don't even want to go out in public because it looks so bad.
However, I started breaking out very bad this past January with cystic acne on my chin and neck. I saw a derm which prescribed Bactrim for 1 month and Differin. This helped, but now it is coming back again. I went to see another derm (I moved) and they prescribed Oracea. Also, they mentioned that if it didn't work after a couple months we may want to try Accutane. I currently have 7 active lesions and 3 of them are the deep, painful kind. I am a 24 year old male.
I still have a couple on my neck (jawline) and on the tops of my arms (ew).. haha Good luck girl.. congrats on your baby!
i heard a rumor that sex can cause acne breakouts, is this possible? is this a hormonal thing? the breakouts are mostly on my chin, cheeks and forehead and are often cystic. i also began breaking out on my neck, chest and back. it's very disconcerting! I use an exfoliating face wash and moisturizer, and i have very sensitive fair skin so these breakouts are very visible. any advice would help!!
I also get them under my chin on my neck , behind my ears, in the back of my hairline , on my chest, and shoulders, arms, and backs of my shoulders. I can't stand this anymore. Can someone please help me?
Hi Everyone, I too have been suffering from acne on my cheeks for a few years. It is only on my cheeks..nowhere else on my body. No products have taken it away completely; however, I have noticed that when I eat foods that contain gluten the acne gets much more irritated, red, swollen, and horrible looking. For the past four years I have tried to eat gluten free but not necessarily as strictly as I should be.
