- Acne while taking diflucan
I've been taking Diflucan for three weeks for an uncontrollably itchy rash across my entire chest. The itching is 100% better and the rash 75% better, however, I now have large, hard, cystic acne on my cheeks and chin and all across my jawline. I will take the Diflucan once more next week then report back on the acne. BTW I am 52 years old and occasionally take Allegra.
- Constant tiny pimples and worse after taking lantus
I finally made a connection to my skin issue. I have been using lantus for nearly 6 or so years now and I mostly always have some sort of raw acne on my face. I had it prior to Lantus as well, but it seemed it I could somewhat tell what set it off.
Anyhow, I recently had ran out and used Novolin 70/30 until the other came in. During the use my sugars were better and my skin seemed to clear up a bit. So, I get another bottle of Lantus and less than 1 week of use I had a blister on my foot and my face, all at once, was nearly covered in tiny rash-ish like tiny blisters. They don't clear up with acne medicine and there are at least 2 new ones every morning. I watch them develop throughout the day as well. I have kept using it bc I don't want to waste it and bc of this my face has stayed "blistery" and I feel infectious.
Whether it is related or not I also get very large, painful and destructive cysts on my face as well. I was told by my doctor that it looks like staff, but I never got them on my face before Lantus. Kind of makes a bit of a correlation to me.
Does anyone else experience these issues?
- Depo provera overdose
Dr acidentially gave me something like 9 times the normal dose of depo provera. My life has been miserable! I have fought excessive weight gain, infertility, severe cellulite, and acne for 20 years.
- Spironolactone caused meibomian gland dysfunction
I started taking spironolactone to help with hormonal acne. I took 1 pill for 3 months without any noticeable problems. Then my dermatologist increased to 2X/day. Within 1 week the glands in my eyes (meibomian glands) completely clogged up and caused severe dry eye. I continued taking the spironolactone for 6 weeks and my eyes didn't get any better (at the time I didn't know there was a connection to the med). I did some research on line and found out the spironolactone can actually cause this problem. I completely stopped the spironolactone and after 1 month my eyes are better.
