I recently ate lots of sweets. Mostly because my office has huge buckets of Halloween candy all over. Well now, I have the worst acne. I kept it under control with drinking water and eating well, but the candy got the best of me. My face is red and full of acne. I guess I have to get more will power.
I also noticed a few months back, that acne started coming out when I ate eggs from the local grocery store. I try to minimize my hormone intake from chicken and eggs and eat fresh home grown stuff. Perhaps, there is more to getting acne with PCOS than I know about.

I have been having a heck of a time with acne too. At 30 years old, I feel like I shouldn't go through it. I know in the past metformin helped and I just went back on it a few days ago. I am also using proactive solution and will try drinking more water.

Okay, this is weird, but after having persistent acne since adolescence and using strong OTC washes and creams, I just got tired of it all (I'm 25 and not on any medications). So I stopped washing my face with anything but water and my skin cleared up. Haven't had a breakout in weeks. I also started being consistent with water and fruits and veggies around that time, so who knows. Also, I don't wear makeup on my skin (just mascara and eyeliner sometimes).

I just started to go to a dermatologist, because my PCOS related acne worsened from Mirena and I am losing my hair in front. He is testing my hormone levels and will probably be putting me on meds. to lower my testosterone levels. I hope it works.

I suffer from the same thing. The best thing you can do is wash your face, drink lots of water and try to eat natural foods. Avoid processed foods if you can. Everytime I eat crap I get have horrible breakouts!

Lots of water, and believe it or not losing weight. I know I have heard it for ages, but since going to a low carb whole foods diet people say my skin glows. I used to have bad acne and huge ones too, but like i said after losing some weight and the only thing I drink is water and 2 cups of decaf a day, only around period time do I get a couple small pimples. Also make sure you wash your face in the morning and in the evening before going to bed. Sounds nutty but the more processed and impure things we put into our bodies, does take a toll on it.

I started getting those gross acne knots too. I went to the derm. and he prescribed me BenzaClin. I can't use it every day because I have really fair and sensitive skin but it has helped a lot with my acne. If over the counter doesn't work, see the doctor. Good luck.

Looking for suggestions for my face it is covered in spots and boils right now it is horrible :( more so because it is that TOM! I use tea tree oil but it dries out my skin. Any advice would be great. Would be interested in taking herbs or suppliments if that would help.
