hormonal acne?

Recommended Posts

and what should i be looking for?

basically i started getting acne when i turned 15, i just turned 16 now, and its still there.

Edit: My dermatologist is going to start me on acutane on the 15th, i was wondering if accutane really would help me at all if my acne problem was hormonal.

im curious as to why everyone always says hormonal acne is around the chin/jaw? where is this info from, i believe it but ive never seen a source?

and joey, accutane is usually pointless with hormonal acne, most ppl who take it and have acne return after tend to have hormonal acne which, accutane doesnt affect your hormones, basically bc pills are needed.

Mine must be hormonal to then, chin is the place I break out 99% of the time, hardly ever on the cheeks or forehead.

I cut out milk to see if it would effect me and changed my diet alot more than it was and took some other stuff and i'm pretty clear, odd bump here and there.

Herbal tea, depending on the one you drink (aka Green tea and peppermint tea), are supposedly good for settling down hormones.
