Hey guys, I'm new to this acne.org site so I'll give you a little background story of my acne.
I'm 16 and I've been suffering with moderate to severe hormonal acne for 2 years. I currently have a lot of white heads on my forehead, blackheads on my nose, and my main concern are my cheeks. My cheeks used to be filled with very large painful pimples and I have been using Tactuo (or Epiduo) ever since I had acne. Now I have about 2-5 pimples on each cheek depending on the time of the month, and they're also covered with post inflammatory hyperpigmentation with a few pitted scars. Oh and I have very oily skin and large pores.
So my derm prescribed me 50mg of minocycline in Feb and just last week he prescribed me biacna (ziana). I'm trying to slowly get off the minocycline bc I feel like two antibiotics is too much. I have been using the biacna for a week now and so far I'm breaking out a ton. I'm wondering if anyone with hormonal acne used ziana/biacna to treat their acne bc I read somewhere it doesn't work for hormonal acne, it just brings everything up to the surface :/
