Thanks for taking the time to read my question...

maybe you could help me out. How do I know if what I have is hormonally realted?

* I am a 25 year old woman who has had very oily skin and little bumps on my forehead (non-inflammatory) since the age of 15-16... way after my first period.

* I notice that my skin is oilier some times of the month than others times.

* My acne fluctuates, also depending on what time of the month it is

* I am careful not to use products that could clog my pores, wash twice a day with a mild soap and moisturize a little everytime I wash.

* Have not been responding to antibiotics, creams, BP and so on.

I think that my acne and excessive oil production is testosterone related, but I don't have cystic acne or get pimples around my mouth and chin. I have been reading up on SPIRO and just started DIANETTE 2 weeks ago, with no results yet... but it's early, I know. I am hoping very very much that things will get better.

CAN ANYONE HELP? Any little bit of info will help.

I'm new to this messageboard and have had really amazing responses from people. So thank you in advance for your time and kindness.

Androgen related acne usually appears on the chin, jaw, and outer contours of the face.

Stress related acne appears on the forehead and nose, usually.
