Re: Side effects

DR said its an allergic reaction, and she's never seen anything like it before. She couldn't believe I kept taking it all weekend . What's weird is its only my face and normally reactions affect whole body. And it's cystic. One cyst you think okay happens, but I have 6 the size of nickels. Not normal. So taking a two week break then starting a different progesterone, lowest dose possible to see how I do with that.

Thanks for your replies today ladies. Without them I probably would have waited until my appt end of next week.

Re: Side effects

Good grief! Glad you're ok! Does she have you taking Benadryl or just stop taking progesterone and wait?

Just waiting it out for now. She did tell me to take pain pills. . I may take Benadryl to see if that helps. Figure it couldn't hurt!

Re: Side effects

Glad that's resolved and yes, that's an odd allergic reaction.

Benedryl and advil! Great combo for sleeping..

Re: Side effects

Well, been off progesterone for a week now, and my face is WORSE. It's ridiculous. They have no idea what is causing it, but pretty sure it is hormone related. I finally tried tea tree oil last night, which seems to have helped some. But I can't live like this! I feel like I traded one problem that kept me home bound for another..... I have 21 cysts the size of nickels on my face right now. It isn't only ugly, but painful.

Re: Side effects

maybe it's not the progesterone, but the patches. It can sometimes take a little while to develop an allergy to something. Perhaps it was just coincidence that it happened after you started the progesterone.

Re: Side effects

Thanks for your support ladies.

I had another appt today, and my dr is at a loss. She said it isn't cystic acne in her opinion - not sure what it is. But she doesn't think it's hormone related. Not sure I agree with that. Anyway she gave me a script for topical antibiotic, and is referring me to a dermatologist. Have to wait for insurance approval. So frustrating.

I did venture out today. Had someone ask me what happened to my face. So I won't be doing that again for a while.
