History of acne. Have ulcerative colitis. What is going on?

I am a 33 year old man. I have had acne since I was 12. It goes mild sometimes for years, and then comes back more aggressive. I ve seen numerous dermatologists, been on everything except accutane. They said my liver test suggested accutane being a bad choice. I was 19 at that point. At this point in life, 33, I have had Ulcerative Colitis for 4 years. It seems to come and go with my Acne. More aggressive each time. What is going on with me?

ulcerative colitis is not a disease of intestine only. it is an autoimmune disease, hence has impact on whole body, a good suggestion is to take curd with turmeric daily.. just try this for few months. better not to take accutane now as u hv a gastro problem.
