Back Acne Working Out
I've been working out and eating healthy, using neutragena naturals & nothings working for my acne. Could it be my stress working against it?
Not lifestyle: Contrary to what anybody else has told you, lifestyle (diet, fitness, personal hygiene, "stress") is not a major factor in acne. Being a young adult with acne is hard enough without being fed disinformation. It's not a bad soap, but not cure. If benzoyl peroside has failed, get with your physician for something that works (the pill, topical clindamycin, other options right for you). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

No: Moderate exercise has been shown to increase prolactin, a helpful hormone for breast feeding. Strenuous exercise may increase the lactate level in milk which may change the taste a bit. Sweat may introduce a salty taste, so showering before a feeding is reasonable after a workup. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Dermatologist: See a dermatologist or your regular doctor. Also consider acupuncture/chinese medicine to help balance your body. Stop dairy and gluten...Eat more fresh veggies and fruits.

Keep trying: If you are reluctant or unable to do yet another course of Accutane -- and many people do quite a few -- an oral antibiotic is usually helpful. Especially, since you are a young lady, your physician may want to look for a reason that your acne is so severe -- for example, an ovarian malfunction. I'm glad you're taking a proactive approach and i wish you luck. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Acne: Acne can be frustrating to treat. First, not sure what antibiotics you've tried. There are different ones and if one fails to work, then another one can be tried. There are some topical preparations that may help control acne such as benzoyl peroxide + topical antibiotic, or benzoyl peroxide + Adapalene or benzoyl + Retin-A or Retin-A alone. Sulfacetamide/sulphur topical is tried in some patients. ...Read more
Real Rx: You can't do it on your own, and home remedies and topical benzoyl peroxide probably won't touch it. Your physician can probably clear you in about two weeks with a systemic antibiotic that's right for you, perhaps tetracycline 500 2x/day. If this fails and you're offered isotretinoin, accept it. ...Read more
