Re: liver and acne connection??

Someday, some scientist is going to figure out exactly what causes acne. My mom has psoriasis and has been seen by a couple of derms and all they did was keep giving her creams and lotions and all this greasy crap to put on her skin and it never went away just goes through stages of bad and not so bad. Recently, it was discovered, that is has nothing to do with dermatology whatsoever and it stems from the immune system. I am sure that someday, something like that will be discovered about acne. But in the meantime, the drug companies have no incentive for ever finding a cure. Acne is a multi BILLION dollar business. Never forget that.
