Hormonal acne and menopause

Recommended Posts

Hello I have recently been breaking out around my chin out of the blue and it seems to be getting worse. I have been perimenopausal for about 6 months or so. I am starting to get hot flushes so I am thinking it is hormonal acne. I am wondering if anyone has some tips for dealing with this as right now I have a big cyst on my chin and smaller ones under the skin so it is very uncomfortable . I do take 50mg of Spiro per day already. I am wondering if my dose should be increased. I cannot get into my doctor for 2 weeks.  I stopped the pill about 1.5 years ago as was sick of taking it though the combination of the 2 then did help my skin. My skin has been pretty good just on Spro though since then…until now
