Another issue - acne!

Hi everyone,

Well poop - now my face is all broken out

I have all these little tiny bumps all over my cheeks and jawline. I have tried a few different cleansers but nothing seems to be working.

If I decide to go on hormone replacement, do you think it will clear up?

My doctor did call in a prescription for Vivelle-Dot and Prometrium but I can't pick them up until next week when I get paid.

This is so frusterating.

Re: Another issue - acne!

I have the exact same thing with acne ! around the cheeks - jawbone... I've even gotten them on my chest & back shoulders ! hate it !!!! This should only happen when we're teens ! I am turning 46 in June & have had hot sweats since 30 yrs of age - I am active in fitness & competed in body building (figures competition 2 times since age 43) It has been as of the last 3 mths things have really changed in my body... swollen breasts- bloating, lack of sex, headaches, aching back, acne, hot sweats, depression - you name it. I went to see my doctor on Friday about it ... right now before trying any NHT - I am taking vit B6 & Vit D along with the stuff at Walmart I found for premenopausal... not sure how these things will help - but thought I would mention it... I am someone who would rather stay away from Prescriptions & try natural remedies first. I make sure to take a woman's multi, take lots of Esther C along with B50 as well as selenium, chromium (something I have used since I did Dr Atkins diet when I was 36 & lost 45 lbs doing it) of course when you compete it is the opposite - low fat diet & high protein. I also take Calcium/mag for my bones along with evening primrose oil... not sure if this helps you at all - I'm just really getting into the Vit B6 (100 mg), perimenopausal pills & Vit D (1000 iu) I am going to give it a month to see if I notice a difference... let me know how you make out with your choice in what you do... especially with the acne ! I too thought it might be something I was using to wash/cleanse my face or something I was eating & was allergic to - as these pimples are a different kind almost - mine have turned into sores some times... how bout you ?

Re: Another issue - acne!

Hey guys!!! I am 25 and have an FSH level of 61. I haven't been diagnosed with anything YET but I just wanted to mention that I too have a different kind of acne. They get pretty big and under the skin and they aren't the kind that will pop but they are very sore. I also have been getting them on the back of my neck! No fun. :/

Re: Another issue - acne!

I didn't really have acne but my pores got really big and in photographs my forehead was red and shiny. I thought I was just having another hot flash. Dermatologist said I had roceasa and treated me with chemical peels. It worked and took care of some wrinkles. goody
