Hi i am a 27 year old who suffered all of my teens with acne ranging from moderate to severe. In my early 20's after a 2nd or third round of accutane i finally found FREEDOM about a four year remission. Even during my 1st pregnancy my skin was beautiful, however for the past 2 years now i have battled yet again with moderate to sever acne, took a round of accutane again and this time the remission only last months! Also i have developed severe eczema on my hands only, the inflammation keeps getting worse when the weeping and cracking of eczema clears i am left with these huge red patches, worse yet my hands are so tight and swollen they hurt to bend. I am truly tire of just treating these skin symptoms i feel there is more to what is happening and need to know if anyone can help! Important to note among these symptoms, my periods have been irregular which seems to worsen acne, i am not abnormally hairy but i have noticed i have fine blond hair on my face. I'm am short in stature only 5ft and have suffered with kidney and blatter infections, i have also fluctuated hugely in weight most people 5 to 15lbs since teen i go down about 20 or 30lbs and then go up seems impossible to control. I know people suffer far worse disease but i feel like since these issues started with my skin i have put so much on hold due to self esteem and confidence...anybody care to help?
