I'm not sure about the blood test, but I have horrible hormonal acne and usually you can tell if you get those under the skin pimples, the big red bumps, around your chin and jaw line right around your period. I take Aldactone now and it's so much better.

yeah... but the doc doesn't believe it's hormonal... i'd like to get a test to prove her wrong (or right)... that's why i'm trying to find out what to test for

I know you can get tests done to find out the levels of certain hormones in your bloodstream (my gynaecologist offered it as an option) but you'd have to ask insistently for them, if you really want to know if your hormones are more to blame than other factors. I'm not sure which hormones they test for, but doctors would know.
