Acne That Sticks Around...

6 posts in this topic

ok let me start off by saying that I am not a diva in any shape or form, no matter the sound of this post.  I just want to lay it all out  :P  I am thankful to never have had terrible acne so far in my life, but when I do get a few pimples, they just don't want to leave.  Like a visitor that overstays its welcome :rolleyes: the follicle gets inflamed, and stays inflamed for MONTHS.  I use on the spot treatment, but it doesn't make a difference.  I'm often told I have a porcelain doll face, and the paleness to match haha, but then I've got these pesky red spots.  Cover up helps, but doesn't make them disappear.  I feel stupid going to a dermatologist because it's not severe by any standards, but I can't get them to go away.  any ideas?

I'm the same, I don't have bad skin. It is usually very clear, but I break out pretty bad from time to time, and it seems like it takes forever to go away. I find I break out when I eat dairy most often, and that my skin is super easy to control by the way I eat. I don't eat sugar unless natural, any kind of grain or dairy. I know this sounds impossible but it's the only thing that keeps my healthy and clear. I'm 17 and its very hard for me, but the benefits out way the risks. If you wanted a different way, try the clarisonic. It's a bit pricy for a face washing device, but the daily exfoliation really helps your skin stay clear, and glowey all the time. I have one and it was worth every penny.

Hi Caroline,

 

thanks for the ideas!  Sugar is my downfall.  chocolate gives me that kick of energy, but I feel better when I just eat fruit.  Currently, I am not eating dairy and gluten.  I have thought about stopping grains, but I am only two months into gluten-free/df, and I want to give it a solid three month try before making any more big changes.  I am definitely going to keep your suggestions in mind when I reevaluate next month.  Hope you're having a good weekend!

I found my skin improved going gluten-free - all over my body. Mysterious itches, lumps, bumps, red spots I'd had all my life - gone. Wasn't immediate but it happened.

My skin does not appreciate lots of chemicals and I do better with less. I also need something to speed up surface shedding, or I break out. I use Origins Brighter by Nature pads every other day. I also need lots of moisture to stay in my skin, so I use Devita Hyaluronic Serugel daily. For blemishes I use Desert Essence Blemish Touch Stick.

Those products are all gluten-free as far as I can tell, but the manufacturers do not test them or guarantee they are gluten-free so ALWAYS read the labels before you purchase each time.

For cleansing I use....get ready....superfine bakers sugar as a scrub and MyChelle cleansers. MyChelle is a gluten-free line. I use Andalou moisturizers, again, a gluten-free line.

Overall, the less I do the less I break out. I do have to exfoliate regularly, though or I will break out for sure. I have (had, I'm getting older :) ) that perfect porcelain skin, too.

Your welcome! And yeah give it some time I've been gluten free for maybe 6 months if you includ before I started eating it again for the biopsy. And going grain free was the best decision for me. I started t

(Sorry my phone messed up) but I started to improve so much faster! And my skin cleared right up. And yeah sugar is hard to give up, but if you use fruit and honey as sweeteners in baking and stuff it's delicious, and still good for you. I like to cook paleo recipes for dessert because there grain and refined sugar free. And sooo yummy!

    • Marip, Have you been diagnosed with celiac disease or Non-celiac Gluten Intolerance?  I notice you joined in 2014.  Did you ever go guten free?  How can we help?   Sorry, I'm not a stool expert!  You could Google it...  Malabsorption?  Standard lab tests that check for anemia and vitamin deficiencies, etc.  should help make that diagnosis.  
    • You can eat just a slice or two (or equivalent) of bread a day for accurate testing.   I understand about the high deductibles.  We're self-employed and we pay for our health insurance. 
    • Sure, if it's gluten free, then fine.  I am very allergic (like anaphylactic) to ibuprofen and aspirin.  So, in my case, I would just tough it out.  Go to bed.  Sleep it off.....eventually. My money is on the garlic and onions.  I can't consume those either (damn that zonulin/leaky gut -- google it along with Dr. Fasano).  I just season with salt, pepper.  Boring.  But no gut issues.  I'm hoping like my lactose intolerance (resolved), that I will get garlic and onions back.   Finally, sometimes just eating anything can hurt when you still have intestinal damage.  Hopefully, you'll feel better in two or three hours if it's celiac related.  Longer if it's an intolerance (leaky gut thing....) Hugs!      
    • I read on their website that all Advil is gluten free, I had such bad pinching cramping today(which I don't why since I prepared all my food at home today.) I made a pot roast, salt garlic, onions...No gluten but still pain, That's the only thing I ate today..I don't eat breakfast or anything.   Anyways.   Is it a good idea to take Advil for the cramping? That's how I would describe it like someone is reaching inside me and pinching me and twisting my insides.    This is what I took  
    • I'll give my PCP a call tomorrow and see what they can offer. My only worry is the expense as anymore tests will put me behind in being able to afford to see the GI. I have high deductible insurance but get money put into my HSA. I'm still trying to pay off the CT scan though. Which is why I'm trying to pick and choose which poses the greatest risk for me right now and what can wait. (Though I would prefer not to wait on any of it.)

      I really do hope its only IBS. Though I always worry IBS is more or less a doctors way of saying "I have no clue" at that point. :C

      Again, I'll be sure to give my PCP a call tomorrow then and see what the options are. I can feel a lot better trying the blood work first. however, once that is done, do I still need to be on a gluten diet before the endoscopy? Also, is it ok if I still mildly reduce the gluten. As in, can I avoid a whole wheat pasta dinner, but still be eating the peanut butter crackers? That sort of thing. Again I guess that is more of a doctor related question. I just wasn't sure if in order to raise your chance, you have to mass consume gluten or not. (Its already in just about everything to begin with.)   --Edit--
      I just now reread the part that you still need to be on the gluten foods even for biopsy so I'll be sure to do that too.
