    Clotrimazole is a non-prescription anti-fungal cream. It tends to be safe and effective at treating seborrheic dermatitis - which is the red rough skin in the creases of the nose.

    I think the acne is just reappearing after the effects of the spironolactone wore off. Are you able to go back on it?

    The redness and very small white areas in the creases of the nose look like seborrheic dermatitis. I would try clotrimazole mixed with hydrocortisone every night (only on the creases of the nose).

    OrthoTricyclen is a great one for acne. It can take 2-3 months to start seeing an effect, while the hormones become stabilized. Stick with it!

    Your hair will definitely grow back. Minocycline alopecia is non-scarring, meaning that the follicles are still present and healthy (not scarred over).

    It may take about 3 months after stopping for the hair to start growing back, and then another 3 months for the hair re-growth to START to be noticeable.

    Be patient, and in the meantime take 5,000-10,000 micrograms of biotin every day to make sure your hair has the protein it needs to re-grow!
