Melasma and the Mental Health effects of skin conditions

Thanks for your response. I have been under the care of a dermatologist since my diagnosis. I took Accutane for acne when I was younger and wonder if this may have caused it. My dermatologist doesn’t think so. I have tried hydroquinone, but it never helped. I went to a holistic doctor and he had me try azelaic acid gel. I tried acupuncture, herbal supplements, eating super clean and cutting out gluten. I’ve also use face products that do not contain a lot of chemicals. It’s mostly on my chin so I think it’s hormonal. I was on natural progesterone for awhile but it didn’t help. As you can see, I have tried pretty much everything. Now I’m worried about my mental well-being because it bothers me so much. I feel like it’s such a curse to never go out in the sun without covering my face. Even just the heat makes it worse. Thanks for listening 😊

You mentioned eating clean. The Dr. William Crook, The Yeast Connection Handbook has a simple to read and good explanation of how an anti-inflamation diet can help with many skin issues, including eczema which I have. I began this diet in Oct of 2018 and it has made a difference for me, in many ways. Right now am eczema free of all my 3 types, a first in a decade. I do not know if this helps with Melasma, but it would be worth a try. I noticed a difference after 2 month detox and because of that added another month. Now I am the post detox plan and will stay on this for life because of my results.
