Not the key: Acne is only marginally related to diet and not at all to hygiene or lifestyle. You're wasting your time if you try to clear yourself with 'pop' experiments. Get some topical benzoyl peroxide, in a strength and frequency that you can tolerate. If you're not clear in two weeks, phone your physician for something to add. ...Read more

Does exercising (gym, yoga etc.) help avoid remission of adult acne? Has milk to do with acne, i've read it contains oxytocin? I am allergic to milk.
Wrong approach: Ignore everything you read online about acne. With your hair loss, you may want to get with your physician about a hormonal problem. Otherwise, there's no figuring out why some folks have acne into later life. I was able to stop using Rx when I was around 50.

If you are offered isotretinoin, give serious considerating to doing it. It's your body / future. ...Read more

Not so much: It depends if your headaches are due to BP decreasing when taking you spironolactone as you are young and likely have low bp. I can't say this for sure without knowing your blood pressure readings. So diet wouldn't help unless you increased you sodium intake to increase you blood pressure, which i would never ever recommend. I would consider discontinuing the your spironolatone if this continued. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
