Jawline/Neck Acne - Getting really bad, help!
Hey everyone,

My acne on my jawline/neck is getting worse and worse. I have no idea how to clear it up :(. I remembered that I started getting it when I started using progesterone cream. I kept reading so many good things about it that I decided to give it a try (my acne was actually pretty calm back then, but I wanted a "cure"). I tried it for about 3 months. I regret doing that so much now. I then starting using nature's cure pills and that also made it worse. I'm so frustrated right now. The closest cure to my acne problems was when I became a vegan and basically starved myself. My acne was pretty much gone. Well anyways, I read an old thread from healthboards that was about a new acne theory relating to "histadelic metabolism". Does anybody have a say to this? Any help is appreciated. Thanks

One word. Doxycycline.
Get 100 MG and take one capsule a day.
You got to get Doxycycline prescribed from a derm.
This is the best thing by far to clear your face and body of acne.

The jawline/neck cysts I used to get were caused by an allergy (I guess) to oranges. And too much of other fruits or juices sometimes cause them too.

I don't know for a fact that it was an allergy, but oranges definately gave me horrible cystic acne. I was later tested for common allergies and found I am mildly allergic to oranges.
