I’m glad not to feel alone anymore.
Let me tell you my story so that it might help some of you.
As most of you, I have that strange disease since now 1 year.
It all first started when I was under Accutane since 3 months. At that time my skin was perfect but I was heavily loading my skin with moisturising cream, way too much. From that time I started to have small pimples which were itching a lot and kind of red. Few weeks after I still had these pimples but it started to burst and ooze.
As far as I can tell it seems like it’s “moving” on my head and poping out by “cycles”. It started on my forehead and then moved on my cheeks and then on my chin. It’s eventually coming back on my forehead but it’s very light (rarely oozing), and I can have it on my ears (I would even say on torso/shoulders since it’s itching and slightly oozing, although very rare as well)
I’ve read all sorts of posts and everything possible to read on the topic in both French and English.
From my experience and in my case, it does seem it is related somehow with Staphylococcus and Impetigo because I do have Impetigo sometimes in my nose and my ears even if it’s nothing serious. And a few months back I have experienced the worst breakout on my chin ever and that time it was not the usual yellow oozing pimple but an impetigo bubble that took days to clear up.
Maybe there is no link between both, and I don’t know if one is triggering the other or of it’s the same at different levels. Anyway in my case it seems there is a link.
As for treatments I have tried few stuffs like doxycycline or fucidine. Accutane should not be working since it all started while I was taking it.
So maybe it could be related to demodex since I am allergic to dust and mites. And when you read about dogs, it is said that a moisturised environment can trigger issues related to demodex. As you know I was using too much cream and my skin was oily like crazy for the whole night during a few months.
Now maybe the demodex can carry in some way a staph or damage the skin enough make those blisters happen. I dunno.
Anyway I’m gonna try that full treatment against demodex and will let you know guys.
By the way, I sometimes have guts aches I did not use to have before it started. So there might be something to look for on this side as well. I have been tested for Intestinal mycosis or parasites and nothing found so far. My last blood test few months back was also perfect for everything.
Any questions, I’m here and I hope we will find a solution altogether.
