For years I’ve struggled with acne on an off. I’ve used a wide variety of OTC treatments and medications prescribed by my MD. I took a chance on this product about 4 weeks ago and my skin is the best shape it’s been in for as long as I can remember. I feel like my texture is better, old scars are clearing up, and my skin just looks and feels healthier. I had honestly only one blemish appear during “that time of the month” when normally there would be a significant increase. It did take about 2 weeks for me to really notice the change but I’m happy I stuck with it!
Acne is often present. Acne conglobata is a particularly severe form of acne that can develop during steroid abuse or even after the drug has been discontinued. Infections are a common side effect of steroid abuse because of needle sharing and unsanitary techniques used when injecting the drugs into the skin. These are similar risks to IV drug abusers with increased potential to acquire blood-borne infections such as hepatitis and HIV/AIDS . Skin abscesses may occur at injection sites and may spread to other organs of the body. Endocarditis or an infection of the heart valves is not uncommon.
