Posted February 19, I started breaking out for the first time in my life other than very rare pimple about a year ago at college. Since then, its gotten worse and i have gotten worse about dealing with it. I get incredibly stressed about things, and i have always been incredibly self conscious, and don't go out when i think i look bad. Anyways, I break out right below the ends of my mouth.
Its like if you were to draw triangles with the top tip being hte end of my mouth and the base being from my chin down the jawline.
My face is completely clear other than those two triangles below my mouth. I sometimes get pimples on directly on the front of my chin, but its usually off to the side. I also get them sometimes further up my jawline and occasionally above my lips. Ive always thought it was due to hormones because I seem to get moody now, i also haven't had a romantic encounter in months because im too self conscious now. Its really starting to get to me and I was hoping I could find something else to fix it.
I have tried a lot of things by now and some work better than others but nothing works great. My skin is clear. Antibiotics, BP, Differin, and Yaz. Now down to just Differin and Yaz. Soon going to wean off Yaz. Took over 3 months to see much improvement. There's not much to do hormonally as a male, you could try finasteride propecia , a hairloss medication, but it never seemed to do that much for acne for the males I know.
Spironolactone is notorious for side effects like breast development and sterility in men, and you're at a time period in your life when your body hasn't even stopped growing yet.
I suggest you make an appointment with an endocrinologist and get tested for male hormones, specifically testosterone and DHEAS. Read the website www. Posted February 20, Posted February 21, I would not recommend DIM.
Posted February 25, Acne is always hormonal, with the exception of clogged pores from topicals and environment. And diet, supplements, exercise and sleep affect hormones. There are many males on the nutrition board who have improved their skin. Clear after 30 years. Wow, I guess it's been 6 years, now. Severe Acne since I was Anti-inflammatory, nutrient dense, blood sugar stabilizing diet and supplements for hormones, inflammation, aging, health.
No soap or other cleanser except for hand washing! Water only or Oil cleanse. Aloe Vera mixed with niacinimide and a high linoleic acid oil for moisturizer and reduce pigmentation. Diet effects acne in so many ways: Eat, sleep, supplement and exercise like you are a diabetic.
And eat real food! Posted August 31, What are some supplements that help balance horomones in males and help stop hormonal acne? I only get acne on my chin and around mouth, mainly lower lip and all i have heard and read was this was hormonal.
I have been trying strict diet, lots of fruits and veggies but still getting inflammed whiteheads. Are there any supps that def helps for this. All i take now is 50mg zinc and mg no flush niacin. My Vitamin B5 Log. Posted September 13, There are lots of men on spiro. It is prescribed for men for high blood pressure, and as a diuretic. It is prescribe for women for acne because it is a DHT blocker like Propecia. And because it is prescribed mostly to women for acne, there is this big false scare out there that men cannot take it, which is false.
I believe spiro is safe for men, just like Propecia is safe. Side effects are minimal, but what would you rather have, boobs or acne? I would rather have boobs, because I can always wear a shirt and cover up, but I can never cover my face The worst side-effect is being thirsty and having to pee a lot, not having boobs. Posted May 10, Dude, I'm really sorry but I'd much rather have some acne than boobs. Think about what you're saying.
The types of hormonal disruptions that can result from Spiro may be permanent - acne isn't. Posted June 5, You might have a condition called Fluoroderma which is a condition where fluoride causes cystic acne on the face especially around the mouth. This happened after years of being told I had hormonal acne even though hormone tests kept coming back normal. Thankfully i tried a new doctor and he knew about the condition.
While you sleep fluoride is carried in your saliva when you drool. You may notice the side that you sleep on has the most acne. Posted June 12, Spironolactone was actually used first in males for blood pressure. If you don't want feminizing effects boobs keep your dose lower 50mg or below. Honestly though few doctors prescribe spiro to women, and even fewer to men. So it's kind of a moot point. The herbs that have been used to regulate hormones in males and aren't strong enough to give you boobs are:.
I would recommend starting with Life Extension Super K. Whatever you choose, don't just buy the first saw palmetto you see at Wal-Mart. Anything else isn't potent enough to work. You can have the cleanest skin in the world and still end up with acne breakouts. As numerous ClearPores Acne remedy reviews note, this make assists to regulate the things that often origin apparently random breakouts.
It is a natural alternative for any person who has endeavor everything else and is still pain from blemished skin.
