Most of my acne is hormonal acne due to my thyroid being out of whack. It is causing me to break out with whiteheads and cysts all along on chin. Any recs for supplements or creams that may help?

I have had great success with Wild Yam Oil. I really didn't think it would do anything at first, but was blown away by my results. I haven't had a hormonal breakout in four months :) Forget Spiro & Birth Control!

Have you tried taking thyroid medication?

I'm wondering if my acne is from my thyroid..but I haven't been tested yet...but they do make pills to regulate it...because my mom and mommom take them.

My acne is also due to hormonal problems from my thyroid. :/

Your acne is very unlikely to be due to your thyroid. I had a thyroid problem for over a year and thought the same as well since my acne is consisted mainly on chin. I asked my endo about the correlation and he said there is very little chance that it could be causing acne.

Well my thyroid is back to normal and guess what? My acne is still as bad.

If a woman has hormonal acne they usually are prescribed anticonceptive pills and stuff like that but what if a man has hormonal acne?

btw, is there a way to be certain or almost certain if a person has acne due to something hormonal or is a little big complex this stuff?

Could an endo send me lot of blood tests, read them amd say "emmm...I think this disfunction in that thing may be causing your acne"
