What Your Acne Says about Your Health

what if what if your blemishes could talk could they expose internal health problems a widely circulating internet internet post says yes where you break out can reveal what is wrong with you so we're asking can I call you dr. pimple popper yes he's our yeah yeah dr. Sandra Lee what is the real deal yes well there is this claim that according to the area of your breakout your acne breakout it's a reflection of your lifestyle for example they say that if you break out on your forehead it's due to a poor diet irregular sleep digestive problems on your nose you have poor blood circulation on your cheeks it's due to stress and allergies and on your chin it's because you may have a kidney imbalance and hormonal imbalance and all these what's the real deal I'm here to tell you that this is ridiculous and it's all ball more to deal with hold onto your jeans you know who you your genetics and your um just just good types so let's go through some areas some problem areas we've all had so actually what's really nice though this gives you a little bit of a lesson too as dermatologists because we know according to the area in which you breakout it does really kind of give us a clue as to what is causing you breakout okay so for example if somebody gets a breakout on their forehead we suspect that they called palmated acne that is when people were a heavy product in their in their hair like oh it's oily or greasy and they went where their bangs across their face that's the first thing I look at when someone breaks out a lot in the forehead and here's an example somebody on there on the forehead and here on the nose now in particular if we see something there I'm gonna ask about whether there's certain activities that tend to trigger your breakout like whether it happens after you drink coffee if you're drinking alcohol if it's really if you have just exercise in chocolate spicy foods all kind of the fun stuff but all those kinds of things make us think about rosacea and now for your cheeks cheeks are it's pretty common to get a breakout on our cheeks and I will say that in males have you seen abrupt breakout we're gonna think about steroid acne so somebody's a little bit pumped up and it comes up really abruptly you're a breakout I'm gonna think you know is this person taking anabolic steroids for the record it doesn't mean someone in yeah so it doesn't but it's just your spouse it's like honey are you juicing no just something that we think about and if you're a female and you get a breakout and you're an adult and you get a breakout in the beard distribution of the mandible this distribution that's actually something that we we suspect might be a hormonal imbalance and certainly if you have hirsutism meaning you have some terminal hair growth or your voice is a little deeper or something maybe there's something a little awry with your hormones and we might even suspect or evaluate for PCOS polycystic ovarian syndrome or something that might cause this breakup because if you can solve that we can maybe sell there at we could probably sell their actual this is that is an example of where your acne may reflect something going on internally yes and absolutely and on your chin you know a lot of athletes will get an acne breakout on the chin because they were to the strap water polo players football players wrestlers and they don't realize that this occludes this air you sweat in that air it's dirty too and also we get in that area you get perioral dermatitis so parallel dermatitis actually happens exclusively well almost exclusively in women and it's actually not acne it may look like it but it's actually a little eczema or a little breakout so these are the kinds of if I see these in these areas you know the breakout in these areas I'm going to think of a specific diagnosis or kind of hone in on on some kind of treatment regimen because it looks like anything in medicine if you keep track of where your problem areas are you can discuss that with your doctor and maybe there will be a clue in that that helps you determine what the true causes that is the real deal

  27. For those seeking a inexpensive way to clean out your colon, Dollar General has a bottled product called magnesium citrate.
    You must stay home (very loose stool), drink plenty of water and maybe have electrolyte drinks to replace lost nutrients if you're concerned
    I drink half, wait 1/2 day then drink the rest.
    This product is almost the same thing they give to colonoscopy patients to drink the night before their procedure.
    Completely safe, and very effective!
    Read up on it!
