Acne Complications

Hi Everyone,

I like to share my story with everyone and I hope no one ever gets this disease from Acne.

I am 42 year old and have had acne since I was 23. I was treated with all different antibiotics over the years but for unknown reason refused to take Acutane. I do not know if it would have made any difference.

About 5 years, I experienced chest wall pain intermittently and my GP just described it as anxiety and stress

Six months ago, I had server pain in my shoulder and clavicle area. I had a bone scan done and hotspot on my sternum and sternoclavicular joints were shown. Complete blood test was normal except ESR, and CT showed soft tissue around the same spots.

To make the long story short, I was diagnosed with Sapho. It is rare disease that is associated with acne.

My advices to everyone are to follow-up with your acne and listen to your doctors. Be persistent to ensure your acne is cured.

Kind Regards,

Sponsors Lightbulb
