I know that there are various things that women who have hormonal acne can take to control it, such as birth control pills and spironolactone, however men can get hormonal acne too, is there anything men can take to control hormonal acne? Thanks

After trying everything he could think of for many years, including three bouts with Accutane, my dermatologist suggested a low dose of spironolactone to block sensitive androgen receptors in the skin. He wants only a low dose to avoid the man boobs thing. I am unsure if this is the way I want to go. Nothing else has worked though.
