Severe acne after steroids

Hi Tine! I was experiencing similar symptoms to you after getting off the pill and even afterwards. The night sweats, chin acne, and usually around my period. I recently read an article about acne and adrenal fatigue. I have read Fran mentioning that too in some of her comments to people on here. I got off the pill a couple months ago and I started having night sweats and chin cysts.. I was also having some major fatigue issues. I started taking Dong Quai which helped immensely with the night sweats, then I also started taking vitex at the same time as the dong quai. They work really well together apparently. Dong Quai for estrogen, and Vitex for progesterone. Anyway.. I read about the adrenal fatigue on this one doctors website, and he mentioned taking B5 and L-Carnitine to treat acne AND adrenal fatigue! Apparently B5(pantothenic acid) helps your adrenals produce cortisol if you are low. Your adrenals CAN’T function correctly without B5. I really had no idea, and have had suspected adrenal issues on and off since I was a teenager. I decided last week to try these two supplements. I have been feeling so much better since taking them, and……….. the four cysts I had on my chin completely cleared up within 5 days, plus the smaller pimples I had on my chin as well!!! Everything is healing up so nicely now. I don’t have any more or new cysts on my chin either. I’m taking 1000 mg daily of B5 and 1000mg of L-Carnitine. There are different dosage recommendations. The L-Carnitine helps your body produce energy and it also helps your body utilize the B5, so they are synergistic. Anyway, these supplements are affordable and worked for me, so I know they can help others who are having similar issues. God bless!

It is widely suspected that the anaerobic bacterial species Propionibacterium acnes ( P. acnes ) contributes to the development of acne, but its exact role is not well understood. [2] There are specific sub-strains of P. acnes associated with normal skin, and moderate or severe inflammatory acne. [48] It is unclear whether these undesirable strains evolve on-site or are acquired, or possibly both depending on the person. These strains have the capability of changing, perpetuating, or adapting to the abnormal cycle of inflammation, oil production, and inadequate sloughing of dead skin cells from acne pores. Infection with the parasitic mite Demodex is associated with the development of acne. [28] [49] It is unclear whether eradication of the mite improves acne. [49]

There is an hereditary skin condition that resembles acne but isn’t. It is called Rosacea . It usually begins with the tendency to blush or flush more easily than most people and it can progress from there. There are so many signs and symptoms that rosacea has four subtypes, and this young gentleman has all of them. When he first came to me, I suggested he consult a physician and he told me he had already been to two. He was hoping I could help him without Accutane, which is what they had both suggested. Rosacea is a little trickier than acne, but sometimes responds really well to our protocols.
