Cystic Hormonal Acne Help

Recommended Posts

I only get acne on my chin, which doctors say is prob due to excess androgens before my period. I've been taking spironolactone for almost a year and it has worked wonderfully. But I have dry skin and using Spiro has made it a lot worse. I think it also makes me feel tired all the time. I'd like to get off it and find something more natural. So my question is what herbs or supplements are best for this type of hormonal acne? Would wild yam work?

Wild yam boosts progesterone, which can help regulate hormones but not specifically lower androgens. Is your acne mild or severe? From my experience, natural or herbal remedies don't work on nodular or cystic hormonal acne. Keys Soap makes an excellent moisturizer: http://www.keys-soap.com/ostore/product.php?productid=217&cat=51&page=1.
