Hello ladies, I m already four years into menopause, and this past 6 months something completely new and unknown to me before, started: breakouts! On my nose I get pimples ( white heads), and both on my nose and my face I get also so called blind pimples: those that are under skin and never get ripe, and last forever, and the discoloration basically never goes away. I did not have acne or bad pimples literally NEVER, not in my teenage years, not later. What new hell is this? I also do not know how to prevent them, or make them last shorter. My dermatologist, who is very good, gave me high blood pressure medication, but I truly do not want to put yet another prescription medication into my body ( those are oral pills to reduce and control blood pressure). I did confirm on several respectable medical web sites that these are actually prescribed for hormonal acne, so, he knew what he was doing, but I am not taking them. Does anyone else has this problem, and of so, do you know how to fight it? I do use OTC spot medication for acne, but I do not believe this is enough. I hate this so much, really.
