Re: Acne, hormones and androgens
When you were taking erythromycin and you stopped, how soon after did you break out? Also was it worse than before you started taking it? I'm asking this because on another board there's a thread about Treaments & Solutions and the topic has mainly been discussing probiotics as a treatment for acne, hormonal disorders, fungal disorders (yeast infections, rashes, etc), liver detoxifier, digestive aid, etc.
Basically what this one woman said is that ALL of our problems imbalances, increased sensitivites and defiencies could be a result of the lack of good bacteria in our body. I know that I developed a yeast infection after taking Minocyline for 3 months 2 years ago and I went off of it because I was afraid of getting sick, bacteria becoming resistant, or getting yeast infection. I certainly NEVER thought my skin would breakout Worse and in New Areas for a year afterwards. I've been on external and internal antibiotics a few times before since I was a wee kid and apparently the minocylcine was the last straw. I've posted more information about this under a the post PRIOBIOTICS and Clear Skin...
Maybe this could help you, I intend to see if it will help me (I'm supposedly PCOS or IR, because of my sensitivity to androgen--I currently take Avandia and Spirinolactone)
