I have been dealing with acne for about 8 years now and once I reached my senior year of high school I broke out with cystic acne on the side of my face and then later on I got it along my jawline as well. When I moved into college in August, my face was the worse it had ever been.

My dermatologist had prescribed me to Acyana and Epiduo and I used it for about 4 and a half months and still saw no results unfortunately so I stopped using both products.

Finally, I started a few new things that have helped my acne/cysts so much:

1) I started birth control. It is called Tri-Sprintec. I figured that my cystic acne was caused by hormones and decided to give the pill a shot. I have been on it for almost 3 months and I have not gotten one cyst then and my breakouts have calmed down so much.

2) I began taking probiotics. I take 2 in the morning everyday.

3) Every night I wash my face with a wash from Shea Mositure's line of products. Its an avocado, green tea and olive oil wash. I used it on my legs because my upper thighs would break out and it cleared it up greatly so I decided to use it on my face and got a great result as well.

Ever since I started these three things my face has really been improving and my cysts are gone. I still get a few minor pimples here and there however, but they usually heal within a day or two. It's only been about 3 months since I began this routine and I'm hoping that it improves more over time.

I still deal with a lot of scarring however and am going to start coconut oil to see if it helps improve.

Thank you.

They are by Nature's Bounty. It's called Advanced Probiotic 10.

What is the dose of that birth control pill with the 2 hormones?
