Progesterone And Oily Skin

Recommended Posts

I am taking metformin and inositol, both of which boost progesterone. I’ve read that progesterone is good for acne but also that it can increase sebum production. I’ve noticed my nose is oilier lately, like really oily. I still get nodules; however, in the past I’ve gotten nodules but not had an oily nose. The rest of my skin is dry in fact. I’m wondering if anyone has had an experience with increased oily skin as a result of too high of a dose of inositol or metformin? If so, did lowering your dose help and still keep breakouts at bay?
