Has Acnease really helped anyone with hormonal acne on here? Aunt Flow came for her monthly visit yesterday and right away I got one massive cyst on my chin and another on the cheek (used to get more prior to B5 though)... I really don't want to have to deal with these cysts anymore, even if I don't squeeze them they still leave their horrid little red mark traces.

So what's the deal, does Acnease help / cure hormonal cystic acne or what? Even though B5 is helping to prevent the oiliness etc, I am not 100% sure if it's REALLY REALLY REALLY affective with hormonal acne? However, I have only been on it for a little over a month and on quite a low dose too - 3g.

I guess one of the other resorts to beating these cysts would be the bcp... but then I took that when I was 10 or 11 to stop my periods from being so heavy and it got me extremely depressed and I put on several pounds... I think the bcp was Diane-35... I didn't suffer from cystic acne then as far as I can remember, so I can't really distinguish if it kept my skin under control.

Back to Acnease, is it safe to take Acnease along with 3g of B5 a day, as well as vitamin c, primrose oil, zinc, ginseng, kava kava etc?

Mimi, I had acne as a teen also, but never got these darn cysts until middle age-ugh! My 22 yr old daughter is just starting on the Saw Palmetto too, she has terrible cysts, mainly on her chin...i will keep you posted on how we both are doing. Good luck in getting the saw palmetto. Try a vitamin/herb site online to order. I get vitamins thru the internet, don't know if I can post their website on here, but if u are interested, email me at **********.com and i will let you know where I get some of my vitiamins from!! GOOD LUCK to you!!!!
