Women on DKR with hormonal acne

Recommended Posts

Any of you have success with clearing up and/or staying fairly under control with DKR and no BCP or spiro?

I am nearly 42 and suffer with hormonal acne - even though some may consider it mild.

I started on the DKR about one month ago and have had good results. I am on a BCP (Marvelon) but have only just started it so that's how I know for sure that it is the DKR and not the BCP that has helped.

I am hoping that in the months to come I can reduce the BP (nightly at the moment) and that the BCP will help, but at the moment I am continuing with the BP.

I have been on the BCP Dianette in the past which kept my skin completely clear but as you cannot be on it for a long time it is not an on-going treatment.

I will stick with the DKR until I am brave enough to come off it or until my skin decides to stop erupting - hopefully I won't have to wait until I'm in my 80s!

Good luck.
