Diagnosis is usually a complex process due to the sheer number of possible causes and related symptoms. In order to diagnose adult acne, we could:
- Research the topic
- Find a doctor with the time

The process is the same, whichever method is used.

- Adrenal Fatigue
- General Toxicity
- Bacterial Dysbiosis
- High Female Testosterone
- Zinc Need

severe allergies to certain foods
being nearly/totally bald
hot flashes during period
very early puberty onset
history of CFS diagnosis
