tried everything

Recommended Posts

My acne used to be pretty bad everywhere, but as soon as I gave up on worrying about it and accepted that I had it, it actually subsied a great deal. Do you worry alot about it?

Clearing up acne can be frustrating and what works for one person may not work for another. It also takes a combination of multiple types of treatments to find what works for you. If spironolactone is not working for you, you can try many things such as:

1) Yaz or another birth control pill

2) increasing the dosage of spiro that you are taking

3) Retin-A, Tazorac, many different topicals

4) an antibiotic like doxycycline.

Go to the dermatologist and see what else they can do for you as these are all prescription medications.

Sorry, just re-read your post and it said you have tried everything. If you have tried all those that I mentioned. Have you tried Isolaz laser treatments or accutane. Both of those have worked for me.
