Options for people trying to deal with hormonal acne?

Recommended Posts

Used EVERY RX under the sun, been on Accutane, etc. But I'm STILL breaking out on my chin and jaw line (and have very very oily skin causing clogged pores on my forehead) I'm almost positive this is hormonal, I've had acne since I was 11 but only started breaking out on chin, jaw, and neck around age 17. What are options for dealing with hormonal acne?

Birth control is the best answer I can come up with. They can make things better or worse but it's really worth a try.

I'm on BC now, but its not helping, I think I should try a different RX. Thanks for the advice.

How about Spiro? I don't remember the full name but it controls hormones I believe.

I've actually heard about this...but it seems like an intense prescription. Worth looking into though, thanks!
