Normal hormone levels with hormonal acne?

Recommended Posts

The other week I had a hormonal blood test because I had acne and missing periods (for 18 months). Yesterday I went back to get the results and my doctor said the hormones were all completely normal. Also, my period came back yesterday for the first time since January 2017.
im kind of happy that my hormones are all normal and my period is back but I’m confused as to why I have acne that are cysts around my mouth, chin and jawline (hormonal acne). I do have acne on my forehead too though. I have no idea what is causing it if all my hormone levels are normal, what am I supposed to do? I’m taking vitamin D, zinc, magnesium, omega 3. I’ve tried differin and I can’t go on BC because of migraines. My only option left according to the dermatologist is accutane and I really don’t want to go on that :( is it likely that my hormones will settle down therefore clearing my skin now my period is back ? My acne started 2 months after losing my period due to low oestrogen levels
