I am struggling with a severe acne breakout recently. I can not figure out what it is from. It first started at both sides of my jawline, little white bumps under my skin that surfaced as cystic like whitheads. Now I have them ALL over my face. I have been going to a dermatologist for a long time and he told me it was acne and milia. He uses a needle to "zap and burn" them. Which leaves me with dark small spots all over my face like measles or something. They take 7 days to heal.
My questions are:
I started taking a 50 billion organisum probiotic capsule and a digestive enzyme that also has 500 CFU probiotics. Am I overdosing on probiotics? Could this be the cause? I have never experienced this kind of breakout EVER.
Or is it most likely a cosmetic product? I was using cetaphil moisturizer.
My dermatologist put me on Metrogel, will this work for the acne (whiteheads) under my skin?
This is really driving me nuts, I can't even leave the house. I would appreciate it if someone can give me some answers..
