Hello, Tootles!

So, once you stopped antibiotics at 17 (and broke out), you never went back to them? I stopped my med.'s at 22 and got (bad) cystic acne for the first time ever. It's left me with the scars I'm healing with RHO.

I started taking B-5 (1gr/day) for almost two weeks, while I had still been on antibiotics. But I felt cysts forming on my chin, which I attributed to the B-5. I panicked and stopped taking it. Then I tried to slowly wean myself off of my med.'s. I got down to one pill every other day but developed two cysts (one's bad) a few weeks into my weaning. I don't know what to do because I don't know how to get off of antibiotics for good.

Tootles, is your cystic acne hormonal? I'm sure that mine is because I have PCOS. I'm scared that B-5 won't work for me. I'm so scared to try stopping my med.'s again.
