Cystic Acne & FatigueIn the last year I've developed cystic acne across my upper back and on my chin, sometimes forehead. It worsened this summer. They are limited in number (1-2 on face at a time, 3-4 on back) but deep and painful. In the last few months, I have also lost a great deal of energy- I remain active, but it's a chore to get out of bed, and I'm not refreshed unless I get a full 8 hrs of sleep.
I am a 26 year old female grad student. In school full time, plus work full time. I am an avid runner/triathlete, and try to maintain a healthy diet of whole grains, veggies and lean meats/fishes. I always crave sweets and fats (especially dairy) but in an effort towards holistic cleanse, I've nearly eliminated sugar, dairy and wheat/gluten. I still crave those foods though... I do not take any prescription meds.
I'm looking for a remedy to deal with the acne and fatigue, which I believe are related. I am open to pretty much anything, from dietary changes to supplements. I've had problems with my adrenal glands in the past because I am so busy, but changing my schedule is not an option until graduation in December!!
