Tbi's and hormonal acne

Recommended Posts

I was in a severe auto accident a year and a half ago. I have a TBI that included damage to my thalamus.
I've had clear skin all my life, now at 23 I'm having severe acne.
Dermatologist put me on doxycycline, epi duo forte, benzoyl peroxide, nothing is working, it has only been about 3 weeks. I just don't see it getting better.
the acne is covering my forehead and the sides of my face, not my t zone at all. The dermatologist said I had too much androgen. 
About 5 days ago I started Yaz bc, hoping that may help.
In a week I go see an endocrinologist hoping he may have some answers.
Understand if this was a few zits I'd just deal with it, but it's like 50, and it seems like more everyday..I'm embarrassed to be seen in public.
Wondering if anyone else had a brain injury and then dealt with haywire hormones. Thanks!
