I'm almost positive my acne is hormonal. it is mainly around my chin and mouth.
My acne began almost 2 months ago, when I first got my period back after being underweight and non-menstruating for over a year. I truly think my hormones are out-of-whack and that's what's causing the acne. Before I lost my period, I did not have acne. During the time I wasn't having it, I was not having any acne. Now that I have it back, I am.

What kinds of things can I do to stop this and regulate out my hormones?? Will Spiro help at all? If not, what else can I do? please help, thanks!

My concern if youre underweight you wouldnt want to go on spiro. Spiro tends to cause weight loss. Ive lost about three pounds the last time I checked.
My regimen changed (starting 5/16/09) and I am not a happy camper

AM regimen
Wash face and chest with Kaiser 5% bp wash
Moisturize with face reality skincare cranberry cream
Apply Estee Lauder Future Perfect Eye Cream
Apply make up, blush, finishing powder, MAC moisture cover to dark underyeye circles
Pop a doxycycline

PM regimen
Remove make up with desert esscence jojoba oil using cotton balls
starting evening of May 28, 2009, I wash my face with Face Reality Skincare Sensitive Skin Gel Cleanser at night time only
Apply Differin to face and chest
Wait to dry and moisturize with face reality skincare cranberry cream
Apply Estee Lauder Future Perfect Eye Cream
Pop a doxycycline

Foundation- MAC Studio Tech Foundation in NC20 or MAC Studio Sculpt Foundation in NW15, apply a MAC blush, apply MAC prep and prime finishing powder


Anyone who has a problem zit thats having a hard time healing, try this and let me know if it helped you. Mix one tablespoon of sea salt with three tablespoons of warm water, apply to a cotton ball or a paper towel. Apply to the zit for ten to fifteen minutes, and then wash it off.

In that case, try spiro biggrin.gif It hasnt really worked for me yet, but Ive only been on it for a short duration, since November 8th. Also if you go on spiro, make sure you get a topical medication from your derm to prevent an inital breakout.

OK, do you think my age will play a factor? Because I read somewhere that Spiro is "most useful on women over 30"...why so?

Im turning 24 in April so that is not the case. Spiro in addition to helping with acne is used to treat high blood pressure. If your blood pressure is frequently 100 or 90 over something, definitely do not take spiro. Thats probably what the article was referring to when it said its most useful for woman over 30.

If you really think your acne is hormonal, I would first try birth control pills. At 15, I would be hesitant to take spiro. Have you seen a gynocologist? You may also want to rule out PCOS. good luck!

Would a gyno be able to prescribe me spiro; do they know anything about skin problems and hormones and stuff? also, I don't know if BC pills are right for me...i mean, I heard much more consistant and better reviews about spiro.

Of course a gyno could prescribe you spiro and of course they know about hormonal problems. They study the female organs and thast what they went to school for. Its honestly an excellent question but I honestly dont know the answer if you can take spiro at age 15. Ask your primary care physician to refer you to a gynocologist. Do you have insurance?

My daughter will be 18 next month and is on Sprio. She tried the BCP route when she was 16, helped for awhile but wasn't enough. The sprio is helping her alot in conjunction with the BCP. 15 is pretty young though - you definately need to talk to your doctor and your parents to see what they think. I investigated Sprio throughly before I put my daughter on it (didn't want any nasty surprises at her age). All acne is basically hormonal in nature - other, more traditional options such as topical and other oral meds should probably be considered first before you think about taking Sprio because they do a good job treating acne for most people. If your acne is mild, over the counter products such as BP and BHA's would probably beneift you as well. Just dont be in too big a hurry to start using meds that directly affect your hormone levels (BCP & Spiro) - they should be used down the other road if other treatments fail to work.

I agree that all acne is hormonal. It's not so much that your hormones are out of whack, it's just the androgen receptors in your skin are sensitive to testosterone and that is what is aggravating the breakouts. Spironolactone blocks testosterones effect on your skin. You might want to visit www.hormonehelpny.com. That is where I started when I was doing research on spiro. Have you talked to your parents about this? I wanted to put my daughter on spiro when she was your age because she had already been on anti-biotics since the age of 12. I was talked out of it because not as much was known about spiro then as is now. It would have saved her alot of grief to have just gone on it then. She has been clear and her skin has been even-toned for a year now since going on Yasmin and 50 mgs. of spiro.

yeah i agree that it's hormonal. I've heard a lot of threories, that it's your body detoxing, that it's bad digestion, this that the other. but my question was always, why does it generally start around the teenage years, and leave? (obviously those of us on the board still have acne, so we would be outside of that norm). If it's detoxing or digestion as opposed to namely hormones, logically children and the elderly , and well, everyone should be effected with the same relative frequency. I tried this detox, that detox, other detoxes (all i got was very sick), have been extremely scrupulous about what i put in or on my body, and eat well. And the acne got worse and worse... whereas in high school when i was completely clear i wasn't conscious about either. the only thing seeming to put it in the other direction is spiro. Granted that's my personal expereince... and while i think it's good to be openminded to various possibiliies, this seems to have the most evidence.

Yeah I had my poor child doing detox diets, taking supplements, having colonics, keeping away from this or that trying different skin care routines. People would tell her how healthy she ate. Like she had friends who existed on diet coke with no repurcussions. I just thought her liver was weak and their's was stronger etc, etc. Wish I could have a do-over on those years. Nothing worked and she and I went through bad times together. Oh, I think Bactrim and regular skin peels worked for quite a while but then stopped. It's a tough problem. I am happy to see your post where you tried a similar path. My inner health freak still longs for the natural prescription-free route to clear skin, however. But, I am pretty much done looking for it.

i hear you. i think it's great to be on as few drugs as possible, and to try to be in the best health possible. but sometimes you have to just bite the bullet and do what works. if you can stay off meds/perscription topicals, more power to ya! For the rest of us mortals, medicine can help. I am healthy... eat really well, exercise 4-5x and walk bout 5-15 miles a week, take vitamins etc etc etc... the acne just got worse and worse. go figure

I guess I'm responding here because I feel like I have no one else to talk to. I just started spironolactone yesterday. I am 24 and my acne is consistent with the symptoms of hormonal acne, that being that it is very deep, and only on my cheeks and lower face. I am also using a topical that the dermatologist prescribed. I feel so depressed about my acne, and it seems hopeless. I am afraid that months will go by and there will be no improvement. If anybody could let me know how long it takes to start seeing results that would be great.

Months will go by with no improvement. Just gotta stick it out. If your acne is really bad, make sure that you're on a dose of at least 100mg. 

 

It took me 4 months on 100mg to see any improvement. As in, my skin didn't change at all. Believe me I was pretty depressed. Then it was like a switch went off and things started clearing.
