Hello everyone.

I have been suffering with an awful form of “acne” if that’s what you want to call it. I get recurring boils and carbuncles on my bum consistently. I will share with you everything I have tried to stop these from recurring. I have a dermatologist appointment in September, until then.. I am willing to try anything!!

I have done round after round of Antibiotics to no avail.
I have tried salicylic acid, benzoyl peroxide, hydrogen peroxide, rubbing alcohol, baking soda, coconut oil, tea tree oil, almond oil.
I even bought chlorhexidine which is a surgical grade antibacterial wash that surgeons use to wash their hands before surgery. Still I get them.
I have cut everything out of my diet. Gluten, dairy, eggs, fish, nightshades.. nothing helped.
I wear loose fitting clothing, I try not to sit for too long.
I wash my bum with chlorhexidine 2x a day.

The breakouts happen sporadically. I can not put two and two together to know what is causing this!!

Does anyone have any suggestions for me? Anything else I can try? I have two on my bum right now, they are “dormant” but bound to flare up any moment!




Please help
Jane

I took accutane prior to being on antipsychotics. No regrets only although I have read it can cause thyroid issues.

In my opinion the side effects are minor compared to antipychotics.

Have you tried apple cider vinegar? Cutting out sugar and fats out of your diet could also be helpful.

Do you touch your face often during the day? Do you wear Make-up? Maybe you should try to monitor your life for a while. It might help you to detect patterns and possible causes.

I have known individuals with the same issues. They consulted dermotogolgy and we're prescribed accutane, which worked mircles. Yes, there are side effects but I don't feel like they would be have as bad as antipsychotics.
