Ance after antibiotic use

Hello-

Can someone help me to find a remedy for acne? I have never had acne before and I got it during antibiotic use. I also have really blurry vision since antibiotic use.

I have acne on my chin and across my upper back and along my hairline on the back of my neck.

I am female, in my 40s and it doesn't seem to be related to my cycle.

I also developed small patches of reddish/brownish skin pigmentation on inner thighs and underneath breasts, weight gain, and lost my sex drive while on antibiotics.

I have been off of them for three months and there is no change in symptoms.

Can someone help me to pinpoint a remedy?

Thank you.

Low energy. My thyroid has been checked and is normal. I have had low energy since vaccines in 2002.
Weight gain while on antibiotics. I also gained 8 pounds in one month when my doctor put me on progesterone. I stopped the progesterone!
Zero libido.
Insomnia if I travel away from home.
Digestive issues: bloating, candida, pain in stomach if I eat acidic or fatty foods (no heartburn, but very bloated), extreme chocolate cravings all the time, not hormonally. I am gluten and dairy free. Although, if I ate dairy, I would eat cheese and yogurt all the time!

2013-2015 I was on antibiotics – now I have blurry vision, weight gain, high cholesterol, sluggish liver, pain in stomach if I eat acidic things or fatty things, reddish-brown splotches on my skin at breast and thigh.


16. Important Question.
Current and previous remedies/medicines you are taking or took in the past?
A local homeopathic doctor put me on Chocolate LM2, LM3 for three months. It helped with sleep and libido, but not with any digestive symptoms. I took Pulsatilla last month for breast tenderness and swelling before my period and all of the breast symptoms went away. My period was normal. I took Arsenicum 200c before that for Mononucleosis in October. It helped with the fever. I am still fatigued. I took Nux Vomica 30c sometimes while I was on antibiotics when I got really irritable. It helped me feel more balanced. I homeopathic doctor put me on Mandragoria years ago, but I never noticed anything.

17. Educational Qualifications of the patient – Masters Degree
18. Nature of work, what do you do for living? – I teach meditation techniques.

19. Important Question.
Mind-behavior, anger, irritability, hurry, impatient…and so on.. How are you different from other persons, public speaking or not, you can describe all of the details about your behavior, love and affections. .I tend to be friendly, but a bit standoffish. I am generally quiet. I often go unnoticed. I can be an impatient person, especially with other people’s incompetence. I am easily irritated when I am not feeling well. If I am feeling well, I don’t get so irritable and I have more patience. I can “get along” and often hold my disagreements inside. Other people often don’t know that I don’t care for them. I tend to be in a hurry (at least I eat fast). I can get overwhelmed “with the world.” I can get weepy if I exert myself too much physically. I can get fatigued if I spend too much time around a lot of people, and then I withdraw and want to be left alone. I don’t like a lot of demands on my time or attention. I often don’t feel like I fit in. I think I come across as nice and listen to people, but people don’t ever really know me, except my husband. My family consists of my husband and my cat, and I prefer my cat’s company to most people. My husband is probably the only person that sees the real me. I get irritated with incompetent people and people who are self-centered. I am very neat and tidy and organized and I have a strong attention to detail when it comes to aesthetics in my surroundings. I get uncomfortable in an untidy house, although my definition of untidy is what most would consider normal. When I get irritable or impatient with people, I tend to withdraw and go home instead of confronting them, although I can confront someone if I have to, I just prefer to walk away if I can. I don’t like to be cold. I like warm baths, laying in the sun, and I use a hot water bottle all though the winter.


20. Color of the secretions/discharges e.g
Pus, urine, stool, sputum, Saliva etc. – Acne is filled with a whitish pus. I had a vaginal discharge (which also went away with Pulsatilla) and that was a clear whitish color.

For Females Only
21. When is the period during the month approx. date? Around the 17/18 of the month.
Any monthly cycle issues? Regular, early, late, before problems, after problems,
pain, any other discharges? My period is regular, every 29 days, and is light. It lasts about 3-4 days and the flow is bright red and looks healthy. The last it can be watery. I had breast tenderness and swelling and some abdominal bloating, but I took Pulsatilla a couple of weeks ago, and this period was completely normal.

22. Are you pregnant? If yes, please give pregnancy start date? Any current issues? Not pregnant.

doctor - my husband reminded me of two things:

1. My right eye has been twitching for over a month now.

2. This is a very odd symptoms: When I took antibiotics in 2002, I had a lot of issues with sleep. I would get panicky when it was time to go to sleep and I needed a nightlight. My husband and I developed a routine, that I would lay on his lap while we watched tv and then I could go to sleep. This habit has continued and if he goes to bed before me, then I get really panicky and fearful. While I was on antibiotics I had insomnia again, and I began sleeping on a mattress on the floor next to the bed so I wouldn't keep him awake. But now, I get panicky if I try to sleep in our bed. I feel very safe in my small bed on the floor.

Hi, Please hold your horses.

Ars Album 200C, When was this taken and how many doses?
 
nawazkhan 3 years ago
I am sorry...I am eager to feel better.

I took three doses of Arsenicum 200c one week apart in October 2015 for Mono.

After than I tried Nux Vomica 30c (I forgot about this one) and I started to relapse with Mono, so I took another two doses of Arsenicum 200c in November 2015 a week apart. I took the Pulsatilla last week for my period.

Thank you.

Hello Dr. Nawaz-

I have a new symptom - I have a tightness in my lower abdomen (pelvic area) and I feel like I have to urinate, but not much comes out. When I am done, it still feels like there is more in there. I also have a bit of a vaginal discharge. The feeling is of tightness and pressure.

I had these symptoms last summer, but I started taking garlic and they went away and I forgot about them. But I ran out of garlic last week and they are back.

I did take the Arsenicum a few weeks ago. I haven't noticed a lot of changes. My acne is a little less. After taking the Arsenicum, I did notice some achiness in my joints - sort of arthritic-like. I still have a little bit of the achiness.

Thank you for your help.

Update:

My urination was normal throughout the day yesterday, and this morning the holding was less. There is no pain or burning. I am wondering if this might just be something healing from the Arsenicum 200c dose.

Please let me know how to proceed. Thank you kindly and best wishes to you.
