cystic acne - patient profile

I have stated my profile here to get help on my acne conditions.. I trust to get good and favourable help.


. Name : Samrita (i hope i can withhold my real name)
2. Age: 24
3. Sex: Female
4. country : India
5. climate : Tropical
6. current complain-from how many days: Cystic acnes. The acnes or pimples burst one after the other and fill up my cheeks, head, and chin (nose, neck, back are spared) the popping aggravates during my menustral cycles and these acnes burst in full bloom with pus and are big. They usually take long to subsidise and also leave mark that takes all the more longer time to vanish.

I am suffering with this since last 3 yrs now and have consulted a lot of alopathic doctors and tried a lot of home remedies with no success.

7. current medicine you are taking

Since last 3 - 4 days i am on arnica wet dose and silicea prescribed by Joe and its helped to curb the growth and pus in the acnes. and i am just observing my diet, banishing saturated fats like cheese and junk food, including more of fruit juices, curds and all.

8. sign & Symptom of disease: aggravated during my monthly cycles

9. Slight back history: I had absolutely flawless skin with minor problems of blackheads on the nose.. initially whenever i would have road side junk, a big acne would pop out on my chin (specifically) and during my menustral cycles one would pop (on cheeks) this was before 3 years.. suddenly 3 yrs ago i started getting outburst which were uncontrollable and have continued to be so ever since.. everytime i take medication they may subsidise but when i stop the situation is back to square one.

10. family back ground :

My dad is a general physician, mom is housewife, i have two siblings.. elder brother and sister.. both are married.. my bro stays with us with his family.

11. qualification of patient: B.com graduate and currenly pursuing management studies in full time

12. Nature of working: Full day at college.. day starts at 6.00 am (from waking up) till 10.30 pm (when i land home)

13. desire and aversion of food: flexible. I can switch easily to healthy food.. no strong motivation to eat somethng specific..

14. Mind-behavior: I am moody, very interactive, a little dominating and imposing at times, matured, accomodative, I get irritated when things dont go my way.. or somethng doesnt happen when i want.. so i kind of show off in my behavior with roughness, I may end to get rude and unapproachable at times, I am fairly confident and like to mingle around with new people and socialise, at times i do not mind being alone too. Emotionally i do not get too attached to soemthng, I can easily forgive and forget.. though i may remember the details of the event.. but i am not revengeful.

15. Aggravation & Ameliration : Mentioned above

1.Describe your menstrual affections ( if any )

- all physical and mental symptoms before / during / after

A day or two in advance i get mild abdominal pain, feel lil low on energy. During the cycles, i feel pain in abdomen and mild lower back ache for the first day.. rest all is ok. More or less.. the pain is not so severe its pretty bearable and i go about my day as usual.

Mood swings are not so grave

- flow early / late : generally early by 3 - 4 days

- flow scanty / excessive : is slightly excessive in first 2 days rest 3 days its normal to scanty

- any clots : yes especially on first day

- any intermenstrual discharges. What does this mean?

2. Do you have any digestive problems. Not digestive problems as such but i have noticed that outside food does throw my digestion out of place.. i have to resort to home and healthy food most of the time

- bloating of stomach - No

- constipation: Yes on the day I get my date otherwise its normal

- acid eructations or flatulance. Whats does this mean?

how is you skin in general on your face, trunk etc.

My basic skin type was oily on the face and normal otherwise. but i guess in the last 3 yrs i hv tried so much to cure the acnes that it has changed to something between normal to dry.. on the face :(

Since last 3 years (since the acnes starting popping) my skin has developed a lot of dilated pores, On the lining of the nose and the cheeks, the area close to the nose, also the deep of the chin ((the place whr the lower lip ends and chin starts) i have a lot of cyst formation which i need to clean up regularly. again i do not treat my skin at all in beauty parlors i do it at home with the help of natural scrubs and cleansing milk

the skin has gone severely cystic.. which irritates me more than my acnes

when does the acne aggravate

- before flow : Yes i get pops
- onset of flow : Never noticed this so cant comment
- during flow: yes may be another pop here and there.

The acnes also pop up irregularly during the whole month, Initially i thought i would be because of the outside food or junk.. but later i notice even if i dint indulge in those foods, i still got the pops.. certainly in less numbers but it did occur.
