I have the same problem: hormonal acne and inflammation.

recently I've read that your intestinal flora can contribute to inflammation of the body. I've been taking probiotic yoghurt as well as altering my diet to avoid processed crap, trans fat, and much more fibre.

If it gets bad you could try antibiotics but what that does is destroy all the bacteria in your gut, good and bad. If u try probiotics it may help you get a good balance of germs so that you get your body to control the inflammation.
