Many get bad acne when stopping a birth control. Birth control has a lot of hormones, and starting or stopping triggers an outbreak.

thanks so much. i guess hormones vary from person to person- but is there some kind of averaged amount of time that hormones calm down? i can't go on like this.

There isn't some average time.

I know this isn't very helpful, and I'm sorry about that.

Hopefully if you maintain spironolactone it will not continue too much longer.

I don't typically recommend a lot of topical treatments, but if you must, I would get a prescription TOPICAL antibiotic (such as topical clindamyacin) and/or a benzoyl peroxide cream.

I do not recommend retinoids or anything combined with retinoids (no Retin-A or Tretinoin or Tazorac or Duac or Epiduo). I also do not recommend oral antibiotic pills.
