It seemed to make my back and Chest break out right before my period and that hasnt happened in a long time. Im going to wait it out to see if it helps my gyno said we will try a different one if this one doesnt work. Any one have any good luck with LO??
Daisy... few questions.. I have cysts too. Did they go away for those few years quite a bit? do you have really oily skin? How bad is your cyst and acne?
They went away for about 4 years. I only got one cyst every six months or so for those 4 years. I also have little bump-pimple things on my forehead and those went away too. But now, sadly, everything has come back. I don't have very oily skin. I use Oil of Olay oil-free moisturizer every day. My cyst acne is pretty bad, in my opinion. I get about 4 a month now. They are on my chin area 99.9% of the time. I am 26 years old, by the way. I am going to the dermatologist next month to see what else I can do now that the Ortho stopped working. I have been on Retin-A (made my face wayyyy too red and didn't work as well as the Ortho) and also Differin (it didn't work barely at all, but I still use it as spot treament on my cysts and I think it helps them go away quicker). I also used some stuff on a pad, kinda like an alcohol pad the nurses wipes you arm with before a shot. That stuff didn't work at all!!
