My acne started getting bad last year. Ive been using BP on my face, i still break out there a lot but its much better. Anyway, the decline started with my back, then my chest, this year it started with my scalp, arms and stomach and its getting worse all the time. Anyone else have this-know what to do, please???
Nero, have you been on anti-biotics at all? I have had the same acne pattern develop over the past 5 years or so. I started with mild/moderate acne on my face, which I treated with topicals and anti-biotics. Over the years my acne has become less cyctic and more small pimples that show up all over including chest, back, arms, legs, etc., and less on my face. I have been a long-term minocycline user (5 plus years) and recently tapered down the dosage then quit alltogether. However the diet has given me much hope as it has cleared me up by about 50% in a about a month, although I have cheated extensively over the hollidays!. I have heard that minocycline can cause side effetcs like this when taken long-term. Anyone have any info on this, or what the best way to reverse the effects are?
