    Hi,

    Yes now get spots like a teenager ! Never had them when I was one though ? Seems like another hormonal problem.  My symptoms sound very similar to yours.  Also have dizziness and the one I hate the most, hair loss . . . I did it so distressing.  Been taking Biotin for nearly a year and Nourkrin for 6 months.  Have you found anything to help ? Deb X I’m in the U.K. so won’t be able to reply till tomorrow now x

      Oh no ! Hope you slept.  Did you find anything to help with your hair ? What happened to yours ? I wish every other day and seem to loose loads in the shower and when I comb and style . . . It’s really got me down.

    Hi yes I have them too 

    They are not like acne with puss they have water in them and itch 

    I went to see a dermatologist had all sorts of creams and now I think it is linked to my menopause 

    I am back to the dermatologist next month so will see what they say but I agree with every other symptom the spots is horrible make me feel ugly and low

    Hi There,

    So sorry to hear that you are going through a tough time. Yes, I know exactly how you feel, the first time I saw spots on my face I cried, felt ugly & depressed. I’ve been in Peri for nearly 5 years now and have gone through most of the symptoms, going through the sweats stage now, my anxiety has also come back because of Peri. I also know how you feel re the low / non existent libido, unbelievable!!! These horrible symptoms hopefully won’t last forever but know that you’re not alone, we’re all here for you.

    Sending big hugs 🤗 

    Anna

    Hi, I’m peri too and had lots of spots suddenly appear accross my cheeks and nose a few months ago when normally I have lovely clear skin. I was advised to take 1000mg combined evening primrose /starflower oil capsules (2 per day) and they all cleared up within a week! I buy them from Boots but I guess you can get them elsewhere too. Give them a go as can’t do you any harm and may well work for you too. I was told they work by balancing fluctuating hormones!
