I used to get those cyst-like zits on my chin--I'm not sure if they were actually cysts or not, but they would get big and sore, but never come to a head or anything, then eventually go away. I used to use Mary Kay products, but switched to Philosophy products about two years ago. I haven't had any since then. Some friends of mine who have worse problems use one of their serums, I think something in their "on a clear day" line of products. I hope I'm not breaking any forum rules here! Anyway, their stuff isn't cheap, but it lasts a long time and I'm really happy with it! Let me know if you want any more info about their products (and where to order from to save a bit of $$ on it!).
Symptoms began in November 2008, ~4 weeks after giving birth to my son.
Eased for ~3 weeks in December, possibly b/c of probiotic use?
Returned in January 2009 (with a vengeance), diagnosed with pancolitis on January 30.
Currently taking Asacol (400mg 4 pills 3x daily), Rowasa nightly, 40mg of Prednisone (quick taper), Culturelle probiotic, and Zoloft (25 mg).
