Fibromyalgia can cause lots of skin issues: acne, rosacea, dermographism. I have pictures of my skin issues on My Symptoms page. I have found various things that work relatively well for them.
- Acne: I’ve tried them all – Proactive, Neutrogena, I could go on. I use Burt’s Bees Acne kit and was really surprised because it actually worked! I don’t use it per their directions. I use the face wash, only use the moisturizer in the winter and put the spot treatment over my entire face. I also use proactive sulfur mask in the summer. This seems to be a really good combo. The cheapest way I’ve found is to purchase the entire kit at amazon.com. I have the link above.
- Dermographism / Urticaria: Your body produces too much histamine which in turn causes a constant state of hives. Mine is caused by an autoimmune condition. I take 10mg of Claritin twice a day. It is a double dose. I take one at night and one in the am as instructed by my allergist.
- Rosacea / weird face rash: I put Vaseline on it at night and sometimes during the day if it’s really acting up. Note – Rosacea or rashes similar to rosacea can be an indication of other autoimmune illnesses such as Lupus. Get it checked out.
