Help 15 Year Old Daughter Hormonal Acne!

Recommended Posts

Hi! So my daughter has had acne since 6th grade, when she first started getting it she went on Proactive and it didn't do anything. So then we went to her dermatologist and they prescribed Epiduo and she was on it for almost 2 years, and there were maybe 5 periods (periods=weeks) where her skin had calmed down. Then she stopped using everything completely and her skin got so bad! The end of her 8th grade year she was prescribed Minocycline and it did not work, but she developed Even WORSE cysts along her cheeks, and she is desperate for help. She's been on The Regimen for about a week. Is there anything else we can do for the hormonal part? Vitamins? Supplements? Anything at all! She runs Cross Country so she's very active but her diet is scattered...she'll eat healthy one day and another be surrounded by pizza and cookies and everything like a typical teenager would eat...
