such a shame that after all your research your solution is a bc pill. that's how girls here start their posts "back when on the pill my acne was clear, but now what?"
but i'm glad they're others like wishclean who're trying a more natural and safer alternative. good luck.. to all of us.
i may be violating your last paragraf here lol
Agreed. Birth control is dangerous and only marginally effective at treating acne in women and almost certain only temporary. Spironolactone is also very dangerous and can result in organ failure and heart problems in otherwise healthy young women. It is such a foolish decision to compromise your health and life for a purely cosmetic skin disease. Vanity kills.
You are completely wrong on so many levels. Acne goes much deeper than just a "purely cosmetic disease". If she likes her treatment, then so be it. Don't try talking her out of something that works for her. She obviously said that she's done arguing.
I'm sorry but Spiro is dangerous, when I was on it, it affected my heart rhythm and blood pressure which were entirely normal before. It's better to just treat your acne topically (granted it isn't cystic) you can also opt for lasers which will keep you clear up to 3-6 months.
