Hi, I'm so glad I found this group online. This actually happened to me almost 5 yrs ago, and I thought it was the mineral foundation I had switched to. I had never had any problems with my skin, but at the same time looking back now, I was also taking Metronidazole for a tooth infection. It's crazy, because now, I am having the the same thing happen. I switched foundations. By accident, I did not know that the foundation I switched to had minerals inbit. So immediately, I blamed the huge breakout on it! So, I strated thinking, what else could it be. And I really think it has to be the medication. I have only been on it twice in my life and two same reactions. Acne, some of these which are deep within the surface are trigger from within my body. I take great care of my skin. It's just so good to finally figure out what in the world was happening. I just always knew I had never been allergic to anything I had ever put on my face topically.
I had a heart attack 8 weeks ago and 2 stents in right heart and placed on Effient and 81 aspirin Also Lipitor although I don't have high cholesterol and a bp 1/2 pill only 6 weeks since I don't have high bp. 4 days after I started Effient was beginning of terrible diarrhea and a few times vomitted. I have had every blood test and blood culture along with urine and anal swabs and procto sigmoidacopy and all negative ! No one wants to believe Effient is the cause of my terrible chronic diarrhea Not the cardiologist not Infectious disease doctor nor the gastroenterologist. It has to be the cause. No other changes in my life !! I can't go on this way. I have lost 10 pounds in five weeks because not eating right for fear of the diarrhea, I read here that others have had this same problem. What do I do ??
