Hormonal Imbalance - severe acne, Hidradenitis Suppurativa, fatigue?

Hi, I am a 33 year old married woman with a 21 month old daughter. I have had acne since the age of 11. It used to be all over my face initially, then it spread to my back, shoulders and upper arms with severe scarring. Over the past couple if years acne is mostly around the jaw line and very little on the back. The jaw line gets worse about a week before my menses. It is like cysts, sometimes pus filled, sometimes just inflamed and below the skin. It leaves a dark mark everytime.
I also have Hidradenitis Suppurativa like symptoms. Painful cysts mostly around the groin and sometimes underarms.
I have regular periods but last only two days. First day is extremely heavy with bright red blood and second day I get clots. It used to be very painful till a couple of years back but now it can be painful only occasionally.
I used to have very oily skin, now it is more like combination skin.
I have a big fibroid detected during pregnancy. It was initially 6cmx6cmx6cm and by end of pregnancy had grown to 10x10x10. A year after my daughter was born, my ultra sound found it to be 8x8x8cm.
I have complete lack of sex drive. After childbirth, sex has become painful as well due to something at the entrance of my vagina.
I am easily irritated and do not criticism very well. I am very patient and calm otherwise. I am an introvert.
I drink a lot of tea but do not like coffee or chocolate. I do not eat too much non-vegetarian food which is limited to chicken, fish and eggs. Dairy intake is high and includes milk for breakfast cereals and tea, butter/cheese.
I have normal thirst and drink about 1.5l of water everyday. I have to urinate quite often, which may be due to fibroid.
I sweat quite a lot, specially underarms, palms, feet.
I have had an operation for bone grafting on my femur/hip about 10 years back as I had a bone TB infection. Did a full dose of anit-biotics for it.
For acne, till about 6 years back I had tried all prescribed allopathic medecines. Cannot remember all names, but included roaccutane and other such common acne treatment in India. Did not help. Now I live in Europe - much cooler place which helps, but I still have the acne.
Travel and irregular routine, lack of water makes things worse.
I have a relatively stressful life - work, family, responsibilities. And I am not a person who shares my troubles with others.
I sleep quite well. Most nights it is 7-8 hours of sleep except when child is unwell. I like sleeping in complete darkness.
I hope I have included everything that is relevant. This has been going on for so long and the scars on my face and back are so bad that I feel quite frustrated now. Is there any homeopathic remedy that would help?
I tried Dr Batra's (India) for about a year but cannot say for sure that it was effective.

Dear Dr Mukherjee,

Thank you very much. I will start the dosage soon. Just a small clarification, you meant

1) Arnica 1M five times a day
2) C.Sulph 3x four times a day

Also, I usually get liquid form of the medicine from India. How should I measure out the dosage for the liquid?

Regards
Sara

Dear Dr Abhishek,

I have been taking the medication as advised by you for about 10 days now. At the peak phase, my acne which usually was clustered along my jaw line is now in a lot of other places as well. I had a few pimples on my forehead and face, tiny ones all over my upper arm, shoulders and neck and a combination of tiny ones and painfull pus filled all over my back.
Is this how it is supposed to work or should I change something?

Thanks
Sara

Dear saraswati, nice to hear from you,pl stop arnica 1m & c.s 3x for now & start R 26 & R 53 ,15 drops from each 3 times a day with 1 tsf water, moreover also start BC 20 of Dr Reckeweg's ,Germany 5 tabs 3 times a day .

sometimes Homeopathic medicines tend to throw out toxins from the way of skin which in turn arises to an increase in pimples.

pl start R 26 ,53 & BC 20 ,all are Dr Reckeweg's ,Germany medicine & report after 10 days.

Thanks.

Hi Sara,

I am 27 yrs old.I have been going through the same problem since the past 14 yrs. I've had acne and I have just been using different creams till this time. Recently, I got to know that I've hormonal imbalance and my homeopathic doctor suggested a 1 yr treatment where he said that I would breakout a lot initially and would get frustrated. But after a year my face would become completely clear.

I see you've a similar problem. Pls share your medication experience and tell me how severe were the breakouts and for how long did you breakout more during the course of the medication. You think the medication is effective?

Thanks,
Ruhani.

Hi Ruhani,

Unfortunately I have not been able to get the latest medicines prescribed by Dr Abhishek as yet so cannot comment on that. But the previous prescription did cause a lot of breakouts at which point he advised that I change the medicines.
So did you start off on the 1 yr homeopathic course? Would you be able to share the medication prescribed by your doctor?
I am so frustrated at not being able to get the medicines outside India. I really wanted to get started on the dose as soon as possible. Will update my status as things progress.

Regards
Sara

Hi Sara,

So nice to hear from you. I would be meeting the doc next week and would be getting my medicines by then. I would surely share the information with you.

Being in the same shoes, I know how excited you feel about trying something new. It brings a hope of 'might help'. Pls share your personal email adress with me. I'll directly get in touch with you. My address is ruhani dot sandhu at gmail.

Thanks,
Ruhani.

Dear Dr Abhishek,

As advised by your, I have been using R26, R63 and BC20 for 15 days now. My face is much better (2-3 cysts instead of 8-10) but my back is pretty bad. Have several large painful ones come up on my back which is not normal.

Please advise.

Thanks
Sara

Hi Sara,

It's been almost 2 months since I've started my treatment. I think it would be really cool if we keep in touch and share our treatment with each other. I would really appreciate if you can share your email address with me.

I've been dealing with the same problem all my life and I am really excited abt this treatment.

So what happened.. I have a lot of pimples too now that I am pregnant but dont know what to do since Im not allowed to take meds without the docs advice. Is it about my hormones too?

i have read from an article that those changes you are experiencing is because of this hormonal imbalance...especially that lack of sex drive....but it said that it's just temporary and can be recover through exercise, proper diet and medication....

Hi Sara,

How've you been? I didn't read any latest message from you, was wondering how's your treatment going. You know your problem is exactly as mine. I've been on sulphur 1M for the past 7 months and I still break out a lot, that's a part of the treatment. I am not regular on this forum and as mentioned earlier, I was wondering if you can share your email id with me, so we can go through this treatment together and check the progress. You are taking sulphur as well.

Let me know.

Best,
Ruhani.

I hope you guys are still checking this thread... I would urge you to give maca powder a try, do some research on it and i am hopeful you will find it quite beneficial for hormonal imbalance... You may just get your 'groove' back if you know what I mean. :)

Wishing you the best

Hi BaseballBat & Annadianne: It seems like you two are the only ones to use elaps corallinus. Your posts are from a while back. I am curious...how are you doing now? Are you still on it? Any advise?
