Please help-acne solutions

Postby Loulou_ » Wed Jan 06, 2016 8:10 pm

Hi all
I have had PCOS for 2 years now and the only side effect I am struggling to deal with is acne. I had a major breakout on my cheeks which was what resulted in me being diagnosed in the first place. I was told I was unable to go on a contraceptive pill or take the meds used to treat PCOS acne. I struggled for so long trying to find a cure, but after regular reflexology sessions by skin cleared well. In the last month however I have noticed my skin is beginning to get very bad again. I am constantly doing research for solutions....please can someone suggest anything that may help?!!

Thanks x

Hi Lou - I cant help I am afraid as the only thing I know of that helps is the contraceptive pill - there is a good Facebook group called PCOS Awareness UK which is actually quite knowledgeable as well so may be worth joining that one (its a private group so only ladies in that group can see your posts) and I am sure someone on there may be able to advise what has worked for them.
