Hormonal Acne is just Freaking Impervious?

When I use BP or salycic acid on normal zits, they go away within a few days.

But, whenever I break out around my mouth during my period, neither of these can even begin to make the acne go away.

Does anyone know why this is and if there are any other cures that might help? Im really depressed and havent gone out all weekend cause of soo many zits around my mouth.

A random nutjob on the Internet sez:

Melatonin is the key hormone that prevents acne. Lowered estrogen levels in the pineal gland affect the process of making melatonin. Without describing the whole complex chain of events, a potential treatment is to spend as many daytime hours as possible in bright outdoor light at that time of the month, with absolutely nothing in between your naked eyeball and the bright sky.

I have the same problem, my dear. The only thing that's helped for me is the birth control pill. I just started back on it yesterday. Everything else failed miserably.

Oh my god this makes me feel so much better. The problem is, Im 15, and my mom really doesnt want to let me go on it. Any arguments I can use to let her see that I NEED it?
