Losing weight but breasts are increasing in cup size, recently I have had a really sore back, always had a large chest but never back problems til now?

Pregnant? : Enlarging breasts after puberty is finished for most women, especially with weight loss, always makes me think of pregnancy. You could be just increasing your breast size later than usual. If you are having pain due to size, i would see a doctor to discuss reduction. But either way be sure you're wearing a very supportive bra that is the correct size. ...Read more

The base of my spine sticks out since loosing weight, the skin is sore and broken what can I do to avoid it keep happening?

The base of my spine sticks out since loosing weight, the skin is sore and broken what can I do to avoid it keep happening?

Pressure over bones: Our skin is made to take pressure, deeper tissues are not. When you lost weight, you also lost some of the deeper fatty protective tissue and now any pressure/friction /shearing directly pushes your skin into the spine causing injury. You need to protect this area by applying a good protective skin cream or simple dressings until healed. Reposition yourself frequently or use a cushion to the area. ...Read more

It is Isotretinoin (sold in U.S. As Accutane and other brands), and no, those side effects are not normal or common when taking it. A viral illness could also produce those symptoms, so it may have nothing at all to do with the medication. You need to see your doctor to find out exactly what the cause is. ...Read more
