    Breakout From Change of Weather

    Hello!

    So in January 2013 I saw a dermatologist. I had huge pimples and a bunch of acne. The dermatologist prescribed me with a pill, and three creams. THEY WORKED FANTASTICALLY. Now, I a starting to break out for no reason. The only thing we can pin point is the weather change. I don't drink soda, or anything with sugar, just water. I don't eat candy, or anything with chocolate either. I am currently 17 as well. I just really need a solution to this problem. My face is getting worse every day, and it hurts to touch it too. This is my first breakout since the medicine cleared it up around early March. I am still currently on all the medication.

    A big cause of breakouts is stress as well as hormonal changes. I see it consistently in my patients- they are doing GREAT but then a big stress in their lives (ie break-up, job loss etc) increases their stress levels and the circulating cortisol levels in their system and their acne flares.

    I hope this explanation was helpful
