What the derm said

Recommended Posts

My kid is battling an acne flare-up that started after she stopped Yaz and spiro last Dec. She went back on Yaz and 50 mgs. of spiro about 5 weeks ago but no changes yet. She is graduating college in a couple of weeks and so the derm suggested the following. Increased spiro from 50 mgs. to 100mgs, 7 days of prednisone and also taking Bactrim. I just wondered what you all may think of this. Seems like we can expect something to happen!

I dont know about the prednisone...they can cause PERIORAL dermatitis.A condition which mimics acne in the form of red bumps around the nose and mouth.

I guess being on it only 7 days may not hurt though.Plus hopefully the Bactrim will cancel it out.
