I went to my dermatologist about 2 weeks ago, and she started me on a new regimine that is supposed to help with breakouts the way that dapsone does.

I'm taking 500mg of tetracycline and 500mg of nicotinamide twice a day. Today is the first day that I think I have evidence that it is actually working. I think I got glutened a little last night, and I HAVEN'T broken out! I have some spots that are a tad itchy, and there are some faint bumps but NO blisters and NO severe itching.

Hopefully this stuff really works to contain breakouts, that would be great.

For the first time I broke out in that rash on my ankles! I didn't even notice it until one night I just say a little red rash and I looked closer I say little blisters. It doesn't itch or anything but I thought it was so weird! I didn't even know much about it until I finally came on here and looked it up! Well anyways I hope your new medication works!!!!

the cream triamcinolone acetonide usp 0.1% is helpfull. This is not an instant cure, but it is good. I hope your meds do the trick. Nicotina is a beautiful plant, I wonder if that med comes from that plant.

God Bless You,

Connie

Connie, I was using triamcinolone before but recently I was given clobesterol (sp?). It's similar, but stronger and it works MUCH better for me. If your stuff ever seems like it's not working anymore I would try the clobesterol.

Nicotina is one of my favorites, the blossoms are so fragrant. I don't know if it's related or not. Nicotinamide is just vitamin B3, but maybe that is the source. Interesting if it was...

Carolyn,

I'm using Clobetasol too and I love it! But I'm not off gluten yet, waiting on more tests.... In any case, I read the insert for the Embeline brand I have and it says not to use it for more than two weeks at a time. Well that isn't very helpful for me since if I stop using it my scalp dermatitis comes right back. I called the pharmacy and they said it's fine to keep using it continuously but I don't want to make myself sick. It is a steriod after all. What has been your experience/time of use with it?

I actually rarely use the steroid cream. That tetracycline + B3 works so well that my DH doesn't really break out anymore. I do use it occasionally for pompholyx (sp? hand eczema).

But if it makes you feel any better, I used the triamcinolone (different steroid cream) for 2 straight years nearly every single day with no ill effects.

    • The Op hasn't been on the forum for over a year.  Not sure if she has notifications turned on.   you might want to re- think putting your real name on a forum that will Be seen by thousands of people & a dozen trolls.
    • MariaofColumbia,   I came across this thread when a two different friends had posted on facebook.  I read it and felt like you were talking to me.  I've had issues for 7 years now.  My candida cannot get under control.  I went and checked my vitamin B levels and they are high.  I've been on methyl folate for several months now, but only one pill a day.  I do have one MTHFR gene mutation.  I've tried SO MANY candida diets/options and the minute I stray it is back out of whack...or it never really gets rid of it.  I pick up viruses fairly frequently because my immune system is so taxed.  I'm so very tired of dealing with this!!!  I'm wondering if you could go into more detail as to what exactly you started taking/how often/what foods you still avoided (sugar/vinegar/mushrooms/peanut butter/etc), and where your healthy B levels are at now?  You can find me on facebook as Jessica Hecker Andersen and we could always private message as well.  I really wish I could just call you!  lol.  Please, any further information would be very much appreciated.  Thank you!
    • Thank you all for taking the time to respond.  It's comforting to know I have a place to ask questions and share my concerns.   My daughter's antibodies are as follows: 1/9/17:  783.6 (before stopping gluten) 5/16/17: 69.7 8/14/17: 50.6 Her thyroid/hormones all in normal range.  An endoscopy in May showed her villi looked good with minimal damage. Her B12 (checked on 8/14/17) is excellent.  Her antibodies will be checked again when she returns home in Dec.  She avoids gluten as much as possible, however she's away at college so cross contamination is likely.  She eats extremely well -- mostly salads, vegetables, protein, fruits, rice.  When on the go she supplements with kind bars, quest bars, or Rx bars.  She'll snack on gluten-free crackers (Blue Diamond made from almonds), hummus, peanut butter, and popcorn.  Once in awhile she'll treat herself to Tate's gluten-free cookies or Halo ice cream.  She's in college so, yes, she drinks alcohol on occasion.  Titos gluten-free vodka, but no beer!  Since stopping gluten her stomach feels much better, less bloating and pain (her main complaints before stopping gluten).  I do notice when she's home on break from college she will have a healthy, nice sized portion of food at each meal and say she feels very full afterward, yet shortly after she will feel hungry again and need to reach for a snack (always a healthy one).  She takes 2 gluten free gummy Multi-Vites (same as Costco brand I believe) as well as vitamin D daily.   She was diagnosed with celiac on 1/11/17, stopped gluten immediately, and her last period started on 1/13/17.  For six years her period was very regular and it only changed once she stopped eating gluten.  I have to believe there is a connection.  The frustrating part is that nobody has any answers.  I know my daughter would feel a lot better if her cycle returned.  We will seek the advice of a nutritionist as well as continue speaking to doctors, but in the meantime if you have any more suggestions I welcome them (i.e., foods, supplements, vitamins, etc).  Thank you all very much!            
    • If only they were peanut free . I been buying my seeds from Gerbs allergen friendly foods for past 5+ years. I end up buying my almonds, walnuts, and pistachios from dedicated companies....got to admit I get a better deal on almonds but I go through 25lbs every 2 months.
